Josie Girl

Josie's favorite dog walkers are always taking her on long walks and runs, and they send me pictures along the way! So nice of them! Josie is so spoiled!

Patrick and Libby's Wedding


We all had a fabulous time at Libby and Patrick's wedding in DC! So fun to celebrate with such amazing people! Wish Matt could've been there, too..we missed him! And Brady, too!

Thanks, Becky!



Since these weren't unveiled at the shower, along with my other special handmade gifts, I wanted to show them off here! My fabulous, and extremely talented, friend, Becky made our baby these beautiful sweaters, and leggings! I love them all so much! I know that they were all made with love, and they are so special to me, as is Becky! I can't wait to post pictures of Corbyn in these fun and comfy sweaters!!! Thanks again, Becky!

Corbyn's Highchair!

Thanks so much, Aunt Joanne and Uncle Tom! I LOVE Corbyn's new highchair! I know it seems like I'm thinking too far ahead, but I know how time flies and before you know it, I will have pictures posted of Corbyn enjoying her snacks in this highchair! It's so small and versatile...we can use it forever! It will look better upstairs on the wood floor, but right now I'm storing it in the basement until we need it.

On another note, I'm getting ready to head to my 2nd of three dr. appointments for the week. The ultrasound technicians last week and this week pointed out all of our baby's HAIR!!!! This week, the technician said, "I would describe this as A LOT of hair!". Crazy! I just can't picture our baby with hair, as I didn't have hair until about 2 years of age! I can't wait to meet Corbyn and see what she looks like...only 7 more weeks!

Nursery Update



We just LOVE Corbyn's room...and hope she will, too! I love how everything has come together! It's so relaxing just sitting in the glider, thinking of the future with our sweet little girl. Thanks to everyone who has helped us make her room so special.

Baby Shower

The Surprise Guest! :)

Jim and the girls

Kallie's amazing homemade desserts...yum!

This blanket is so special to us...thanks, Mary Jane!

Michelle's Diaper Cake creation!

What an amazing baby shower! I had so much fun and am very blessed to be surrounded by many fabulous friends and family. This special day was full of surprises..beginning with my mom's unexpected visit from Arkansas! Thanks to all the hosts, hostesses, parking attendants, helpers, and guests for an everlasting memory and for helping us to prepare for Corbyn's arrival this fall!

Surprise weekend visit to Arkansas!





I had a fabulous time home with the family for Labor Day! It was so much fun surprising my parents...they were so shocked and confused! Thanks, Aunt Linda, for helping me pull it off! The girls have really grown up..it was fun spending time with them. I loved Emmie's comment, "Aunt Amanda, why is your tummy SOOO big?" and her baby name suggestion of "Harvey Ariel Corbin". Too cute! Niki, hope you enjoy the tummy pics (always love your sweet comments!)..almost 31 weeks now and feeling bigger by the minute! Still enjoying the aches and pains of pregnancy, though! Please keep Corbyn in your prayers, as I now have to resume the Monday-Wednesday-Friday doctor appointments, probably until she's born, due to the irregular heartbeat. I really want to save my time until AFTER she's born, but you do what you've gotta do, huh?!?
