" Them thar teeth r' purty! "

Oh no! Out of the 100 major US cities included in this survey, it was determined that Lubbock residents have the worst teeth! Thats right sports fans, Lubbock came in dead last at the 100 position. The positive PR campaign continues for Lubbock…Ebola virus, stolen babies, highest teen STD rate in the state… and now the worst teeth! - Paul

It’s a good thing Sarah and I are immune since we're not originally from here...

thoughts

- our kid is an acrobat. I think my ribs on the left side are bruised and my bladder may never be the same.

- we are getting pretty nervous about our boy's birth and about what happens after he is born - like bringing him home.

- I am feeling a little sad that my time of having Paul all to myself is coming to an end. I feel the same about our rhythm of life.

- I am tired of constantly dealing with some things at work

- I love that Paul reads to our son just about every night before we go to bed

- OK, so, I am more than nervous about our son living outside my body...I am more scared.

- I am thankful for all my friends who have struggled through infertility because I was able to be gracious the other day when my co-worker told me she was so sorry she wasn't at my baby shower but it was a hard day for her...she and her husband have wanted to be pregnant for 24 years.

- in the same situation, I was even more thankful that the Lord called me to marriage "later" in my life...I know 29 isn't really later, but it was tons later than most people I am in community with. I am able to somewhat (not totally or completely by any stretch) relate to longing for something that isn't fulfilled.

- We feel so overwhelmed by all the random stuff that needs to be done...cleaning the house, finishing some shopping for the baby, finishing the baby's room, packing our hospital bags, enjoying each other.

- I am excited about the surprise date that I will have with Paul in the next few days...I don't know when or what.

- I am excited that this weekend has been declared "Doing things for just us weekend". That means everything else on our to-do list will be put on hold so we can have fun together and do things that give us joy. I will be getting a pedicure for these swollen feet.

- We are 35 and a half weeks pregnant (actually I am, but it's Paul's baby too)...

Tour de Nursery

We've enjoyed giving our boy a nice place to come home to. So without further ado, after lots of work and inhaled paint fumes (by Paul not Sarah!), here is the nursery:
(sorry about the small video...this is our first attempt at editing and posting a video online)
