Not to forget baby Josie who will make her first appearance on September 16th via c-section if not sooner.

Loving these firsts!

Nathaniel James Shirah

I am so happy to announce that my sweet nephew, Nathaniel James Shirah, was born yesterday 8/5/14 at 12:21 pm weighing in at 8 pounds 6 ounces and was 20 3/4 inches long. Momma and baby are doing great. It was such a blessing that Jessica ended up having another c-section as the umbilical cord was actually around his neck when they delivered him via c-section. 

Here are aome beautiful pictures of the sweet new addition:

Toys R Us Visit

We had an impromptu visit to Toys R Us today that lasted 2 hours. Still don't know how that was possible. Jordan and Jackson brought the "monies" (as Jackson calls it) from their piggy banks to each buy a toy. Jackson was on the hunt to start his Lego collection and Jordan well she didn't know what she wanted. All in all it went pretty well and they were happy little campers. 

Baby Josie update

Can't believe in less than 8 weeks our precious number 8 baby will be here. We are so overjoyed for her arrival yet at the same time nervous too. Will we be good parents? Will we give her all she needs and deserves? We will give our other 4 kiddos the time and attention they need? The answer to all these questions is yes as long as we stay centered on God's will. When we follow His direction He will supply all we need. The road may be rough, but it will never be done alone. 

This appointment went well! The cyst is the same and the plan is to remove it during the csection so they will have another surgeon there. Although at this appointment I was one day shy of 31 weeks based on the measurements of her tummy (which apparently are the most accurate) baby girl is measuring 3 weeks ahead and weighing in at 5 1/2 pounds already. Looks like another big baby is coming!!!

Day 7 Family Vacation - Myrtle Beach

Day 7 Family Vacation - it rained most of the day, but we made the most of it with a trip to Bass Pro to visit the fish, a round of putt putt dinosaur style, movies in the camper and of course a free lunch at Chick-fil-A and we all dressed up for Cow Appreciation Day. Finished the night with a few hours at the beach! #myrtlebeachtravelpark
