Tomorrow is December!!

Well guys, only one more day left in November.
I don't have any pictures to share with you, just a quick disclaimer.

We are approaching the 37th week of the pregnancy and that means we are entering into the safe zone for birth. The doctors where a bit concerned about a month ago, that I would go into labor sometime in November so they put me onto a medication to tell me to relax. Its worked but once the 37th week rolls around the doctors had no fears and its perfectly safe to have your baby so I will be discontinuing my medication.

So we will see what happens. She could decide to make her way onto the scene only hours after I stop the medication or she could push past her due date. Officially she is scheduled to be born December 24th, Christmas Eve. But at this point, I think it's anybody's guess.

So, with that in mind, we may miss or postpone our December update.
Once we're home and settled, of course pictures and an update will come, so stay tuned for that.

November smells like a baby

November is here and its about time to get you guys up to speed!
We have been having a blessed month as the weather is now much cooler and we can almost taste Christmas around the corner! Ive already been around to the stores to see what kind of christmas decorations are available and will soon begin to make some good ol' homemade decorations to go up with our tree the first week of December.

We also had some visitors this last week! Our friends Tommy Ruiz and Eder Diaz stopped in for the annual Calvary Chapel Pastors Conference from Okinawa! I was blessed with the time I got to spend with them and I heard the time up at camp was a blessing for all the guys. Their text was Philippians and the topic was joy. I am planning on studying Rusty's notes from the sessions starting this week.
Also, during the first week here the church held a baby shower for us!! We really had a good time and good fellowship. Our military families hosted the event on base, so it was exciting for us all to go to "America" for the day. We played silly games and of course had a bite or two to eat!
We are truly grateful for all the gifts and support we have received. Ive included pictures at the end of this post but they are so packed full of baby stuff you might have a hard time even seeing what we got! Its just a mass of pink and white cuteness!!
We often thought of having children but always firgured it will still be in the distant future, and we often thought "How would we even get all that baby 'stuff'?" and we should have known God would indeed provide for us. We thank you so very much for supporting us in this time of learning and depending on God.

Thank you.

The Diaper Cake!!

We are blessed to have our baby crib. It's a pack-and-play and fits into out Japanese house. A regular crib just would never fit.

Its quite full right now.

Don't forget all those good smelling bath soaps, and of course you can't forget the Butt Paste!!

We are so excited and blessed, and not to mention, our house is smelling a lot like a baby now!

"A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world." John 16:21 (nkjv)
