I am at home for good until the baby arrives! Payton is doing fine, but the doctor was worried about my blood pressure. So, now I must find some things to do on the couch or in bed to keep me busy. Daytime TV sure is not going to keep me entertained for long. I am glad that we got most of our stuff together this weekend, so we are ready for him to come anytime now. Just keep us in your prayers until that day arrives and in the days following!

Last Picture!

We have one last picture of Payton. We were glad that he is no longer breech, so things seem to be headed in the right direction. It was hard to get a picture of him when he is so big, but I think he looks pretty cute! It is hard to believe that he is almost here. He is still very active and seems to have a lot to express about how he feels. The doctor thinks he may be early which would be good. He is ready to go and we will see the doctor weekly. We will keep you posted as things change.

Christmas Update

I hadn't posted in awhile, so I thought I would update everyone on the 'happenings'. We celebrated Christmas in Texas on December 21st, as we were going to be traveling the next day. On the 22nd, we flew out of Texas to Rockford, IL to be with Jonathan's family for several days. We had a great time while we were there and enjoyed being around everyone that we don't get to see very often. We had lots of family things and they even threw us a baby shower while we were there. And, as I was dreaming of a white Christmas, the opposite happened. It was an unusually warm December in Illinois. Jonathan got a new suit from his parents for Christmas and looks very handsome in it. I'm including a couple pictures from our time there.

I should include a baby update as well. We had another visit today and Payton is doing very well. My health is fairly good, but I have quite a bit of swelling in my legs and feet, so we are keeping a close eye on that. We will have another appointment in two weeks and will get to see the baby again. We start our childbirth classes tomorrow, so things are really starting to roll right along. :)
