We are so blessed to have such generous family and friends! :)

It is so hard to believe that we are now past 30 weeks! This week, we will have only 9 weeks left until our due date. We are slowly feeling more and more prepared. Everything seems to be coming together well, but it is sure coming quickly!

We have been so blessed over the past several weeks to receive some wonderful, generous gifts from some of our family and friends. It is awesome that the baby is surrounded by so much love already! Thank you so much!

These are so cool and we thought you might enjoy seeing them!

First of all, Bethany and CJ and Danny and Chris got together and ordered Scott and I a couple of really nice diaper bags. We are going to be very fashionable parents!

Here is mine:

And here is Scott's. (It is actually called a "Diaper Dude"!). You will notice in the photo that he found the pocket for the bottle!:

Lisa's mom, "Grammie Baptiste," knitted a gorgeous sweater and hat set for the baby, so between this sweater and the cool diaper bags, all three of us will be very fashionable!:

Scott's best friend, Shannon and his wife, Mary are so awesome! They sent us this swing (and they claim that since they live all the way in Minnesota, this will have to substitute for babysitting from them!). We love it, guys and we're sure the baby will too!:

Shannon and Mary also sent this really cool space saving high chair that we are sure will work really well to feed our baby and conserve space in our small home. Thanks guys!:

This week, we are planning to finish putting together our changing table and move around some of the furniture items outside the nursery to make more room in general in our home.

To see all of the photos related to these fun gifts as well as some from Grammie Baptiste's birthday party at our house, click here.


  1. You couldn't have said it any better. This baby will be truly loved.

  2. I have two of those high chairs...they are awesome.

  3. That is the best high chair ever! I suggest it to everyone I know!

    So excited for you!

  4. Congrats on the news of the bundle of joy to be!
