Thanksgiving Weekend and Update

I just wanted to update everyone on our Thanksgiving holiday and Baby Walker.

We spent the holiday here in Atlanta literally waiting on the baby to arrive. I had many phone calls to ask if I felt anything yet! Mason was off of work for a couple days and we spent all of our time enjoying John Lawrence. We ate our Thanksgiving Meal at the Carriage House which is a restaurant owned by Chateau Elan. It is a was very quaint plantation house and the food was excellent. John Lawrence was on his best behavior. I pulled out all the stops and brought Skittles and Gummy Bears. His meal consisted of Pasta, Grapes, Bread and Candy. That night we went and got our Christmas tree. I must say it is our biggest and prettiest one yet.

Friday, we got up and played and went to play Putt Putt Golf with Martha Jane. As you can tell we go often. John Lawrence absolutely loves it! JL is into his Aunt Martha Jane and believe me I am taking full advantage of it. He even says no Martha Jane do it!!! (instead of no mommy do it)

Saturday was game day-(Carolina vs. Clemson). We started out with a big homemade breakfast with all the sides. Around lunchtime Martha Jane came over and we decorated our tree and she gave us a break and played with JL. Then it was game time. Carolina won and JL took a long nap! Martha Jane made us dinner and then she and I went out and did a little shopping. It was fun!

Sunday, we played Putt Putt Golf again and played outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was a nice way to end the holiday weekend.

On to baby news!
Monday was my doctor's appointment. I was really looking forward to seeing if I had progressed any from the week before. I was now dilated to a 3 and 90% effaced. The doctor thought I would go this week so he made the decision to go ahead and induce me on Wednesday. I can't tell you how happy I was to hear those words. As of tomorrow I will be 39 weeks and I can't believe I made it this far. I am so ready to meet this baby and find out the sex and watch John Lawrence interact with his new brother or sister. I go to the hospital tomorrow at 6:00am. I will post pictures as soon as possible (thinking Friday). I know many of you will get phone calls as soon as we find out the sex and stats. Someone will call you don't worry!


Middle of November

I have not posted in two weeks and my the time is flying. I am surprised because the count down is on to meet Baby Walker and the time has not slowed to a stand still yet. I am 37 weeks as of yesterday and I will admit that I am impatient at this point considering that John Lawrence would be 2 weeks old at this time. Hopefully it will happen soon. We feel like life is on hold at the moment and then we look at JL and remember that for him life keeps going very quickly.

Here is what has happened the last 2 weeks.

Dad and Diane came for a visit. They had 2 days off of school and decided to come to Atlanta for the weekend. We had a great time. Diane, JL and I did some Christmas shopping and Dad and Mason played golf. We had some good meals and just really enjoyed each other. John Lawrence loved Dad and changed his name to Grandaddy instead of Grandpa. He thought it was fun to tickle Dad's feet and jump/wrestle with him the entire time. So, they had a lot of bonding time together.

John Lawrence's preschool had their Thanksgiving Feast. Parents were invited to attend and bring some food to share. We were asked to bring the dessert so Mason made his famous Banana Pudding. It was a hit! John Lawrence was excited to see us there and Walker was also at the luncheon which was an added bonus! They were so excited to see each other at school. They go to the same school, but are in different classes.

The weather was beautiful last week so we took advantage of it and took the boys to the park two of the days. It was great!!! On Saturday, Mason and Eric took the boys to play Putt Putt. They loved it and then went to McDonalds afterward.

Sunday, my friend Katie invited us over for lunch and made us Lasagna, Salad, Bread and Banana pudding. It was a great meal and her daughter Anna Kate and JL got to play together. Thanks Katie and David! It was great seeing you both!

This week the weather has not been as nice. It rained all day on Wednesday so we went to the mall. The mall is ready for Christmas! The decorations are up and so is Santa Claus. We rode the train, waved to Santa, ate lunch and got a cookie. Even did some window shopping for awhile.
