my apologies

my apologies for not blogging as i should have been. it feels like i have been non stop the past few weeks (which i have) and now i am just trying to enjoy these last few weeks of pregnancy.

since my latest post...i have been showered and blessed by some of the sweetest people. i had a shower in dallas that was given by my mom and sister two weeks ago, and this past weekend i had a shower that was given by erin, michelle, sonya, julie, leslianne, erika, and lyndsey...some of my dear friends from second.

we also have FINALLY completed the baby furniture...you may remember that we were given all the baby furniture, and decided to have it antiqued. we were not too pleased with the outcome of the furniture. so the past few weeks my amazing mother in law spent all of her free time fixing it. it looks sooo much better. i'll post some nursery pics soon.
we also have officially decided on a name. patrick and i have tossed around several names, but we came back to the one that we had picked out long before we were even pregnant.
Jett Elijah Thurman
we wanted a biblical middle name. so i gave that job to patrick. after nights of studying, praying, and looking at the geneologies, patrick finally chose Elijah. he also, intently, gave him the initials JET. i felt like for the longest time that we would never have a name for this sweet boy. i'm so grateful that we both have a peace about this name, and now we are just ready to meet him!
update on pregnancy and Jett:
i am 35 1/2 weeks pregnant. i have definitely had my share of braxton hicks. i am going to the doctor weekly now. so each friday i can give you an update on where we stand, and hopefully he will be here sooner rather than later!
i'm counting on labor day. : )
