Maternity Pictures

Check out to see some belly pics I had taken last week.
I will post my own when I get my copies!!

Life's Been Busy!

Hello Friends!

The latter part of June and all of July has been a whirlwind of events. I have had a baby shower in Dallas, my ten year high school reunion, the Fourth of July, another baby shower with family in town, the furniture for the nursery finally came, birthing classes, and a little bit of work in between! I am truly blessed with all the friends and family who have participated in the preparations for this baby! Collier is going to be one spoiled little boy!!

I will be posting pictures very soon of the baby showers and the nursery. While my mother, grandmother, and aunt were here this weekend, we unloaded all the shower gifts and organized everything. This week, my dear friend Mary Jane and I are busy with art projects that will decorate the baby room. When we finish I will share all the cuteness of the nursery!

I am 35 weeks this week! I go to the Doctor today. I have been getting more uncomfortable as the weeks go along. If my feet aren't swollen, then it is my hands. They are getting harder to use everyday. Collier also feels like he is sitting on my bladder and right down in my lower pelvis. Even walking gets uncomfortable at times!! All of this makes me even more anxious for him to come!! What we endure for our children!! Now how many times have we heard that from our mothers?

Hope your enjoying the rain...
love ya, mean it.

Eight Months and Waiting

Welcome to the new Thompson family blog!

As Adam and I approach our second anniversary of marriage, we anxiously await the arrival of our first child! We are soo excited! God has blessed our family with a little boy. I am currently in the beginning of the eighth month and my belly is growing. Preparation is under way as we get ready for little Collier's arrival.

This week we started our birthing class, which opened our eyes to the labor and delivery process, along with breathing techniques and coping strategies. We are hoping to get the nursery started this next week. Some of you know that we have been waiting on our baby furniture. Baby Coco promised that we would get it on Tuesday. When it arrives, we will be busy setting everything up. I promise to let you see it when it is done!!

There are many things to do to get ready for a baby to come into your family. We want to keep our family and friends updated on the progress and new addition. Keep visiting our blog for updates and pictures. We love sharing our life and blessings with others!

This is me and my sweet friend Liz. She and I are both expecting. I am 30 weeks in this picture. She is six weeks behind me!! This was at our 10 year high school reunion.

This is another picture taken at our high school reunion. This is Shari and she is expecting too. Once again, I am 30 weeks and she is about 5 weeks behind me. So fun to be pregnant with your friends!!

More updates to come...
