8 Months!!

Somehow, someway, somewhere we turned 8 months pregnant! 8 months people!?!?!?! I feel Lily everyday kicking around so I'm actually starting to wrap my brain around the idea that she'll be coming home in just 7 weeks!! WOAH!! Julie F. got her haircut the other day and made her follow up appointment... it was for the first week in April!! That's when Lily will be here! WOAH!! She called me so excited about it! Too cute!

I've hesitated posting lately because I didn't want the family reveal video and all those pictures to get lost in blogland so if you haven't had a chance, check out the post from 2/4!!

Aside from some heartburn and swollen feet at the end of the day, I'm feeling great! We have a dr. appt on Monday, 2/18 (President's Day) for a checkup. No ultrasound tho, but I guess I can't complain since I've had 15+ thus far!! Boy, am I spoiled!! :)

Here are some current pictures...

8 months and proud!! :)

Fresh "Lily"s on hand :)

Cousin Bridgid (black), my Godmother Jan (green) and best friend Dottie (cream) surprised us and flew in from MN and IA! Woah, were we blown away! That meant more to us than they'll ever know!! It made it complete that they were here!! And of course you can't forget Grandma Stout(black/white) who coordinated the big surprise!!

Grandma Stout with her 3 girls!! The love in this picture is probably oozing from your monitor onto your desk!! We asked Jen(black) and Molly(green) to be co-Godmothers to Lily since there is no way to choose and we don't know what the future holds with Baby H #2. They were co-bridesmaids in our wedding so it seemed appropriate to carry on the tradition!! No brainer!! :)

Another family photo feeling the love!!!

Grandpa and new parents to be :) Isn't he cute? We always say he could be a JCPenny model!!

Where's Charley?

Where's David?

A girly diaper cake from Rayna. I don't know how I'll ever take this apart (or Jen's) to actually use the diapers!! Thanks Rayna!! We love it!!

Love these signs made by Kelle (probably in her sleep)!!!!

We'll use them again for the hospital room!

Those nurses don't know what they have coming!! tee hee

Some cute food on the picture to read them up close :)

This sign from cousin Bridgid says it all!! It is hanging above Lily's nursery door.

We wish we could carry it around our neck everyday!! :)

Thanks Bridgid! We love this sign!!

Some light reading about Lily Grace...
