Your baby is the size of a honeydew melon, and she now has the ability to suck. So she'll be ready for a bottle at birth. At this point, your unborn baby should be positioned with her head facing down toward the cervix. About 97 percent of babies have adopted this position by this point. At our last sonogram at 30 weeks, Mary Margaret was in the head down position. Praying she is still that way. I go back Thurs. for my appt and sonogram. :)I am still in nesting mode. I am washing all the baby clothes this weekend and starting to pack bags. I am going to bring the swing in the living room soon and put the infant seat in the car. We are all getting excited!! This has been a great week. Some sweet friends have surprised me everyday with a baby gift. It has been so much fun and Mary Margaret has gotten so many cute things! Thank you so much to my friends who have made this week so special for me.

We are all getting so excited about Mary Margaret's arrival, but we have got to remember, she is not coming on our time, but on God's time. I am so anxious to meet this baby girl, but the Bible says "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Phil. 4:6 So I have got to stop worrying and enjoy every minute of these last few weeks with our 2 girls as we await the arrival of #3 and remember who is in charge of ALL the details, and it is NOT me! Thought for MY day: "I will try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward." charlotte bronte

My appt went well this afternoon. No dilation yet and everything was great. My blood pressure was good and Mary Margaret's heart rate was good too. Destin went with me. I go back next Thursday and will get a sonogram then too. Just a few more weeks and Mary Margaret will be here! Alot to do and short amount of time to get it all done. I am going to pack bags soon and put the car seat in the car; these are just a few things on the to do list.
We had a wonderful weekend! We started early with Beauty and the Beast on Thurs. night at Thalia Mara Hall, then Friday, Mama, Queta, and I went to Celebration Village in Tupelo. We had a blast and it definitely got me in the holiday spirit! We are 2 months and 1 day away from Christmas :) I got Mary Margaret 2 of the most precious little hats ever.... So Sweet! Then Friday night, we came home and got the girls from MawMaw's and went home and put the pack n play up... We are all so anxious and excited for Mary Margaret's arrival. Then Sat. I cleaned up the house some, and SaraBeth had a birthday party to go to at Beehive Bakery for Chasdyn. She had fun decorating cupcakes. Then Sat. night, we had a Fall Sunday School party at the Cummins house. We had soups, appetizers, and roasted marshmellows on the bonfire. The girls stayed with Nana and Pop so they had a fun night too! Then Sunday morning at Sunday School, our class threw me a diaper shower. I got a bunch of diapers, wipes, etc. A big thanks to everyone! Especially Hope, she and Bobby had breakfast yesterday morning. She made my favorite breakfast casserole, and white chocolate covered oreos with a pink "M" on them. So cute! Then awana last night at church! It was a busy, but really great weekend. Looking forward to a good week ahead!

Your baby is the size of a cantaloupe, and his main job now is simply to continue plumping up. She is approx 18 inches long and almost 6 lbs by now. WOW! I can't believe it is almost here. We will get to meet Mary Margaret really soon.
Your baby's preparing for her arrival in just a few short weeks! This week, the protective vernix caseosa (that cheese-like, white, waxy coating that's keeping her skin safe) begins to thicken, ensuring that her birthday suit stays smooth and well-moisturized during D-day. Your baby will likely arrive covered in the stuff, especially in the folds under her arms, behind her ears, and in the groin area. But it'll all be washed off very shortly after birth -- during her first-ever bath.
I am in extreme nesting mode now. I have been cleaning and getting everything ready. I got her peg perego car seat in, am going to put the swing and pack and play up this weekend, and our Sunday School class is giving us a diaper shower Sun. morning. So excited!! We are ready to meet this new baby girl.

I am sooo excited! I just found out we are going to see Beauty and the Beast tonight at Thaila Mara Hall in Jackson. The girls will LOVE it!! I am pretty pumped too. Nana, SaraBeth, Mallory, and I are headed to Jackson late this afternoon for dinner and then to the broadway musical "Beauty and the Beast." This will probably be our last "girls" trip before Mary Margaret is born. Super excited! Thanks so much to our friends who couldn't make it and so generously gave us their 4 tickets on the 7th row centerstage!
Last night we had a gender reveal party at Cortni and Chad's for Baby Kyle and Baby Cox. It was so much fun. SaraBeth and I guessed right!! Baby Kyle is a GIRL and is going to be named Annna Payton :) Love it!!!! And Baby Cox is a BOY and is going to be named John Calen. So sweet!!! Can't wait for spring to meet these new little ones. We love ya'll and are so excited!!
