We had two showers last weekend (One at Harmony, where John went to church, and one in Mayesville where I grew up). I feel so blessed to have such wonderful and faithful people in our lives that care so much about us and that will be wonderful influences for our children. What a blessing! Click here to see some pictures from the showers. Other news....I went to the doctor last Tuesday for my Strep B test, which I will find out about next week, but they also checked (at my request) to see if I was dilated. I was kind of surprised when the doctor said "Oh, you are dilated!" She said the baby's head is down, that I'm dilated about 1 cm, and that I'm 90% effaced! She also said that she could eat her words, but didn't think I would make it to the due date!! So, we're just praying the delivery will go smoothly. My bags are packed and we are just playing the waiting game now! We have also added a few touches to the nursery like the baby monitor and the growth chart. Mrs. George came through with some great looking cushions for the glider.

Sarah, one of my best friends in Greenville, and her mom, Lynn, and mother-in law, Joy threw me a baby shower this past Saturday. We had a GREAT time! They really went overboard with the decorations! They were beautiful!! My mom and John's mom (the gorgeous grandmothers) came to the shower and stayed for a visit afterward. We're so blessed to have such Godly women in our lives and I can't wait for them to be a part of our children's lives! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends. It was great to see some of the girls I went to Erskine with (Hannah, Tiffany, and Erin) and my friends from First Baptist Church and our supper club in Columbia (Ashley and Emilie). I hope now that we are in Greenville I can see everybody more often! I missed everybody that couldn't be there! Come see us if you're in Greenville!! Click here to see more pictures:)
