Well, I am 33 1/2 weeks now...and I had my doctor's appointment....and I go back in 2 more weeks!!! We're getting so close, and I'm so excited, and just flat out ready!! Little Brayden Josiah is so low that it's painful carrying him....but we're going to get through it, and not too much longer :0)
At the appointment, she said everything looks good, that I'm measuring right on track, and that he is making me look bigger than I am because of the way he is positioned in my stomach....thanks Brayden ;0) j/k and he's low and therefore I'm really swollen...that's ok though...:0)
I am so thankful for this beautiful baby growing inside of me, and I'm excited to see how Peyton is going to do with the new baby and the change that is about to take place....God has been so good to us, and we daily thank Him for ALL He has done....

So it's been a month since I last updated on the Sharpe Household....:0)
We had a WONDERFUL Christmas...we stayed in Cleveland, TN on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and headed to Texas on Christmas night....We spent time with Jason's parents on Christmas Eve night, but that day Peyton and I baked cookies for Santa, and I was so excited because he enjoyed making them!! Then we headed home to Jason's parents...that night we came home and prepared for Santa Claus it was fun to be able to do that at our own home....and we got up the next morning, not too early, Peyton slept in :0)...and had our own little Christmas at our house, and I made Monkey Bread like the tradition we have always had at my house growing up, it was SOOO good :0) Then we headed to Jason's parents house.....
That night we drove to Memphis and stayed the night and arrived in Van Alstyne the following day at about 3.30...and guess how warm it was EIGHTY DEGREES!!! Crazy warm! Peyton loved it, he immediately went outside and played with Pops!!!
I love going "home" and visiting....it is always so nice to run into people that I grew up with or just being at my "home"....although it's not the home I grew up in all my life, it's still my parent's home, since it's close enough :0)....
While we were there, my mom, my sisters, and sister in law, and my aunt and best friend through me a Baby Shower for Brayden, it was so great to see my friends again, and also get some neat stuff for Brayden! Including his new Bedding!!!!
But, the visit to Texas was great.....and to think that the next time we're there we'll have a 4th member to our family!! Yay!
Then our trip was immediately cut short, Jason had to get back by 10 a.m. on New Year's Day to move into his new office at the new church (no, we're still not in it yet) so we drove through the night on New Year's Eve night....Happy 2009 to us ;0) huh? So, we drove and drove...Peyton went to sleep about 11 p.m. and slept until 11 a.m. the next morning, it was WONDERFUL to be able to sleep in too!! Although Jason couldn't sleep in....he was out most of the day....
Then we all had to go back to work on January 5th....I had been out for 2 1/2 weeks, so it was tough getting back into the groove of things....but, we are slowly, but surely....it's tough for me to go to bed early although I'm this far along, because we were getting used to sleeping in....
Peyton started his new preschool, finally, at Westwood Baptist Preschool here in town, he has 2 great teachers, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Morris, and an excellent Director...Mrs. Rhonda Walsh!!! What I meant by finally is that he was suppose to start January 7th, and we had a downpour of rain, and our city and county schools were closed, therefore Peyton didn't go to school....until January the 9th.....and then this past Friday he was out again, b/c the schools closed b/c it was too cold.....and then Monday is MLK Day and we're out, so it's tough that he hasn't gone into full swing yet....but he will...:0) Pray for him....
And, I'm 33 1/2 weeks now....I'm doing pretty good....I'm exhausted, and everything, and Brayden is definitely low....and I'm started to swell....bad....but we're almost finished with this pregnancy YAY!!! It's tough sitting at work all day, although I get up and walk around once or twice in an hour, it's like he gets settled in the lowest part of me, and it is so painful....but like I said I'm so thankful for this AMAZING Gift God is giving us....and we're so very thankful, and we pray that God continues to develop him to be strong and healthy!!!
We got Brayden's crib too this week!!! So exciting! I was kind of worried because we found it online, and it looked so wonderful, and it was a great deal, including free shipping!!! I prayed and prayed after I placed that order that everything was fine with it, and it was just as gorgeous in person.....and it was, if not more than what I thought!!! I am posting pictures of the crib w/our new bedding....now we're looking for Peyton some furniture and some bedding for his room....he is being so good about all this transition....he wants to help so much! I love it! I'm so proud of him!!!
Well, I am sending links to our pictures that I posted on facebook, and even if you don't have an account, you can look at my pictures through this link....they pretty much sum up what's going in our lives :0) or have gone on.....
