Could I borrow some energy?? seems like the past 8 days have just FLOWN by!! I'm trying to update this thing weekly but man it's tough sometimes. There's just SO much going on right now!

We FINALLY finished the renovations to our master bedroom and it looks awesome! I am absolutely in love with my new room and can't wait to get the baby's crib set up in there!!! Unfortunately, I have yet to actually SLEEP in my new room since most nights I end up in my recliner!! This little one requires me to sleep almost upright or else it cuts off my circulation by laying on my spine!!, I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed again. That'll be nice.

I had my baby shower on Sunday and it was so much fun! I just love sitting around with the women in my life sharing stories and laughing.......could not think of a better way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon!! And getting to open baby fun!!

At our midwife appointment this week, I learned that I'm now 1 cm dilated and that the baby has definitely "dropped"......which would explain why it's all of a sudden easier to breathe and this one has more and more room to squirm around. At this time, Pam (above mentioned midwife) guessed the baby to be right at 7 lbs. And I still have a little over 2 weeks until my due date!

We attended our childbirth class on Saturday the 20th of February. Steve did NOT enjoy to real life video of babies being born........enough said on that.

Business is going wonderfully! I'm trying to get as much work done before the baby comes as I can, so I'm stuffing everything into each day that the Lord will let me. It's been such a blessing in our lives and I can't wait to "work" each day!! How rare is that?!?!

The girls are doing amazing! Kamri has been on green a lot more consistently lately and therefore is finally getting to participate in tumbling again......which she LOVES!!! And I love being able to watch them both!! Spring break is coming up really soon and I think they both need a break!

We had record breaking snowfall last week, which I think I posted about in my blog! It snowed for close to 24 hours here and we had snow on the ground for several days after! The girls LOVED playing in the snow and even got to take a couple of days off school!! YAY for snow day!!

Other than that I don't think there's anything else to post for this week as of right now! The kids continue to grow and develop and say things that amaze me on a pretty much daily basis!!! And I'm loving every minute of it!!!

Will update soon! Love to all!!

Oh my goodness....where has the time gone??

Well, we are officially under the 30 day mark!! We have 26 days remaining until our due date!! Still working on getting the house under control but hopefully by the time I post again next week it'll be complete! This chaos is driving me insane! Baby shower is this weekend and I'm so excited about that!!! We also have a childbirth class to attend on Saturday, which I'm excited about ~ Steve is really not! LOL...... But he understands why it's important and didn't put up a fight when I asked him to go, so I think I've got a pretty great guy!

The girls are doing absolutely awesome! They have loved "camping out" while our house is being turned upside down. But, I'm definitely ready to have them in their new bedroom and have all of their stuff out of the rest of my house!!!!!! I know that when it's all said and done we're going to be very happy with all of the changes that we're making.

Business is going really well. I've been more busy this week than in a couple of weeks and that's been a complete blessing! I start to go a little stir crazy if I'm not working. I'm trying to get as much done before the arrival of our new little one as possible ~ I'm sure I won't be able to do much work in the first few weeks after he/she arrives.

Not sure if I mentioned before (think I did) that Jessica is also expecting her third right now and is currently due on March 2nd. Which for them is just right around the corner!! We're all so excited to meet the newest member of the Davis family!!

Went to see my midwife yesterday and I'm still a fingertip dilated but my cervix is starting to thin out......still growing in there, and definitely running out of stretching room! But I feel great! Better than I did during the second trimester actually. I was in a LOT of pain during that time, but decided at the beginning of my third trimester that I would look into chiropractic therapy......and boy has it made a difference! I would recommend it to ANYONE, and especially anyone who's pregnant! I feel so much better than I did a few months ago that it's literally unbelievable to me sometimes! Good stuffffff!!!

Well, I guess that's about it for now. Will post as we have new developments! Hope everyone is doing great and living in God's blessings!!

Love to all,
Melony & the rest of the family : )

33 Days Left!! And SO much to do!

Oh my goodness....where to start! Had an appointment with my midwife yesterday and I'm a "fingertip" dilated. That's basically nothing, and completely normal at this stage. Baby is growing right on schedule and is looking great! No problems with weight, blood pressure, or anything else so at this point we're just continuing our wait!! LOL

Started renovations on the house a couple of days ago. So, it literally looks like we JUST moved in. The girls moved downstairs, father-in-law moved upstairs and Steve, the baby, and I are going to be moving into the master bedroom downstairs......but we're knocking down a wall and putting up another......painting......and laying down new carpet first!!! There's A LOT going on at our house!

We had more snow today than this area has seen in 30 years!! I haven't seen this much snow in Texas in my entire LIFE!! That's downright awesome! SO, the girls got to stay home today and school has already been canceled for tomorrow!

Baby shower is scheduled for Feb 21.....I can't wait! But EVERY weekend between now and delivery time is completely BOOKED!!! It's really going to be here before we know it!

Will update again soon! Love to all!
