Botanical Gardens
Grandma, Mommy, and Grammy
Grandma and Grandpa got in from North Carolina on Sunday evening and we all just couldn't wait to see our little boy. We thought lots of walking might get him her a little sooner, so Grammy and Pops took Grandma, Grandpa, Mommy, Daddy, Uncle John and Uncle Seth to walk and see the pretty flowers at the Botanical Gardens! We walked and walked and walked and walked......

Mommy needs a little break!

Grandpa, Mommy, and Grandma are waiting for our 'Lil Gossett!

We heard that Mexican food may do the trick...the cook even made my food spicier! Well, it worked...that night I started the labor pains! I thought I was just tired and sore from all the walking, but it was the real deal!

Just a funny little story....

Is this for real?
I'm almost thirty-seven weeks and we're at the hospital! My doctor gave me a list of things to call her about if they happened. They happened, so I called the nurse. She said we had twenty minutes to be at the hospital! We frantically ran all over the house trying to get things packed, not knowing what was going on, just laughing and wandering if this was the real deal or not!

Mommy and Daddy!!

We get to the hospital, ready to have some fun!! The nurse plugs me into the monitors, asks lots of questions, does some tests to see if it's time, and calls the doctor. The first test comes back and she says not yet! But, my doctor wants to wait another hour or so.

Daddy's ready!!

We're just getting some good practice in , that's all!! Practice makes perfect....ha! The next test comes back with a nope too! So, we packed up after a night full of fun! It was fun to hear the baby's heartbeat and see the contractions on the monitor. We learned a lot!

Our five hour oops is finally over!! No sweet little boy yet, but soon!!

Now we're just ready for the real thing!!

WHBC shower...
