Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Ours was great. We spent the day at home preparing an awesome meal for lunch. The menu included: turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey gravy, stuffing, rolls, and apple crisp for dessert. It was a very good meal that we will be eating well into next week. After eating and clean up, we both found a couch and took a nap with plans to go watch the 4:30 showing of Blind Side. However, upon arriving at the theater, we discovered the movie was sold out. So we headed back home to decorate our new Christmas tree. Below are some pictures of the tree.

Robin doing a 32 week pregnancy photo in front of the tree. Notice the ornament in front of Robin's face.

Here is a close -up of the ornament. It contains an ultrasound picture we got this past week.

At the appointment this week we found out that Wiggles is still in the breech position, so hopefully Wiggles will flip around before Week 36 (week of Christmas). If not, they will more than likely schedule a C-section. Regardless, the doctor said if the baby was not born by week 39, they would induce. Wiggles passed all the tests (i.e. movement, practice breathing, umbilical cord blood flow, etc.). The doctor told us everything looks great. Robin goes back for her next check up on Dec. 3rd. They will do another ultrasound at that appointment, as well as, each week for the remainder of the pregnancy. She will have appointments once a week until week 36 then start going twice a week until she has the baby. Below is a close-up of the ultrasound photo that is in the Christmas ornament.

Birthday and more....

Today was a special day around the Matthews' house. Today was Robin's birthday!!!! I tried to make it special by cooking her a yummy breakfast first thing (blueberry pancakes, eggs, and toast). Then I brought home Qdoba for lunch, and we ate at Olive Garden for supper. Robin spent a few hours on the phone today with family and friends and really appreciated all the birthday wishes. Below is Robin with her Baskin Robbin's birthday ice cream cake (compliments of Grandma and Grandpa H.)

No candles so you will have to guess how old/young Robin is.
Does that cake look yummy?

Here is a pregnancy update photo we took tonight (Week 29). The baby bump is growing!!!
Below are some pictures of the nursery. We finished some of the final decorating touches last night. We still need to do a little bit of touch-up painting and add some pictures on the wall.

Check that pig out!!!

The diaper bag and changing table/dresser.

The bedding.
Gotta love those little baby farm animals!
