Bed Rest


Sorry if you are completely grossed out by feet....or cankles! At my 37 week appointment yesterday my doctor decided to place me on bed rest. This decision came after gaining 8 pounds worth of fluid in ONE week and my blood pressure starting to creep up. We are concerned about the beginning of pre-eclampsia. This was a very disappointing visit for me, but I knew my feet and legs were getting bigger by the day and more uncomfortable by the minute. The good news is I'm already at least 3cm dilated and 90% effaced, so he may come soon and bed rest will be short lived. Please pray that I will compliant with the doctor's recommendations and Carson and I will both stay healthy up to the day he decides to make his grand entrance!

Happy 6th Anniversary! Larry and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary on July 26. We made a trip to Conway and Little Rock to purchase the remaining essentials (a few not so essential but fun things) for Carson's arrival. We had a ton of fun together and literally shopped til we dropped :) It was so fun to see Larry so excited about cute baby clothes and crib sheets :) His favorite purchase though was the video camera!

Bridge Class shower


Our Sunday school class in Russellville, The Bridge Class, gave us a great shower! We even had a surprise guest all the way from the other side of the world! These gals were so thoughtful and just made my day when Amberley joined us via Skype for the entire shower :)!! Also, my friend Mandie from Houston was able to join us too!! It was so fun and Carson got a ton of cute things! Thanks girls!

The videos below

So my incredible brother in law- all the way from the other side of the world (literally, Asia) walked me through posting videos from picasa today! I am so excited to have this figured out before Carson arrives! So these are obviously out of order from the rest of the blog, but below are some videos of Larry and I telling our family the news in late December/early January!
Carson will be the first grandbaby on my side of the family and the third on Larry's (but first grandson), so everyone was obviously thrilled! Enjoy :)
Telling the grandparents!

We also have a sweet video of telling Larry's grandmother (Nanny) but unfortunately it is too dark to see anything. Trust me though- she was very excited!

Telling Larry's dad- he didn't catch on right away :)

This is us telling Larry's mom, stepdad, sister, nieces, and brother around Christmas time.

Telling the family

It is a bit out of order but I think we finally figured out how to blog movie clips. We'll give it a whirl....this is the one of us telling my family (the bauman's) that I was pregnant. It was Brant's (my brother) birthday weekend and so we wrapped a present (t-shirt that said "uncle brant") and gave it to him.

Nursery makeover







My awesome husband did such a good job painting the nursery and he had a lot of help from mom- unfortunately I didn't get a picture of mom. Hope you like the update to the nursery! Now, all we need to add is the bedding and that will be ready soon :)

Over the 4th of July, we were able to go to Houston and see some of our friends that we miss every day! We had a great time and even got to go to our former church and sunday school class-Saved 2 Serve. We only got a few pictures there, but it was a delight to see everyone!
