November 2010

November ended up being just as busy as October! Probably don't have as many pictures, but trust me it just FLEW by. The month started off with Mark working on the baby's room. He thought this was going to be a weekend project... Hmmm...well it was a weekend..or two..or three! It turned out to be a bit more work than either of us had realized, but the finished project is completely worth it. Mark did a fantastic job and he had a great little helper. Jonathan painted one entire wall blue and really did a great job painting. Here is step one of the process: painting the room blue. Many more steps to come!
We had another baby shower at work for Michelle, another PT. She is two weeks ahead of me, expecting a little girl. The shower was a little bittersweet as her husband has gotten a new job in Dallas and they will be moving at the end of the month. She has become a great friend to me and they live in our neighborhood, so I will be very sad to see them go. But it was fun to give her fun gifts for this little girl.
We signed Jonathan up to take the Big Brother/Big Sister Class at Baptist Hospital where we will be delivering. This class is supposed to help them with the transition to having a new baby in the house as well as alleviate some of the fears of seeing their Mommy in the hospital. Jonathan just absolutely LOVED it, every single part of it. I have to say that Mark and I highly enjoyed ourselves as well. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time as watching Jonathan and the other children answer questions, change diapers, and play in the delivery room. He made a great card for Daniel's crib in the hospital, fed a pretend baby a bottle, changed a diaper, had a birthday party for the baby, went to visit a labor and delivery room, visited a mother/baby room, and even got to see a real live baby through the glass in the nursery. I have to say the class was great and I would highly recommend it to other Big Siblings!

Jonathan went to a birthday party the next weekend for Megan. It is so hard to believe that she is 3! Seems like she was just born yesterday! Jonathan had a great time playing with everyone at the party and did a great job decorating his crown all by himself.
 That same afternoon was my baby shower from the girls at church. It was so very nice and just so filled with love. They had done a bear thing which I just loved. From the invitations, to the decorations, to the food, it was just perfect. My Mom and Mark's Mom and Aunt were able to come share the special day with us as well. Everyone had a really nice time and I am just so appreciative of the love that was shown.
