32 weeks!! 8 to go!

Just a quick update:  This week is week 32!  We are down to just 8 weeks left to go.  It's been a very bumpy road, hoping that this isn't a glance into the future of what this little girl is going to be like :)  I've had many sleepless nights, especially recently due to the contractions I've been experiencing.  We had our 32 week appointment tonight, and the doctor has set some restrictions as well as started me on a medicine to help stop the contractions.  Other than that, Baby Colt's heartbeat was super strong, so I was very happy to hear that!
I've started into the nesting mode!  Washing baby clothes and doing some sorting.  We have lots to do to prepare the baby room yet.  It currently serves as a Laundry Room.  This is the way the previous home owner had the house set up.  SO....our laundry room will be moved down to the basement sometime within in the next 2 weeks hopefully.  The crib is here, just needs to be put together.  Can't wait to be able to get into her room to really start putting things in their places!  She will definitely be here before we know it, we are just hoping she doesn't arrive too early!!

We also had a Baby Shower this past weekend, put on by some of Chris's family.  It was a great time and again, we feel super blessed to have so many people in our lives that are so excited for our baby girl to arrive!  I'll end this blog with just a few photos from the baby shower!

October 2013!

Well, it's been over 2 months since I last blogged.  It has been a pretty crazy 2 months too!  The Colt household has been busy preparing for this bundle of joy that will be here before we know it.  November is going to be a busy month...busier than the previous 2 months!

First I want to share a picture of Miss A in her Halloween costume.  She was a witch...a candy corn witch is what she said she was.

We had a fun time trick or treating on Halloween night.  It was a bit chilly and windy, so after about 15 houses Miss A said she was ready to go and her bag was getting too heavy. :)  We made a quick trip out to Papa Tony & Grandma Jenn's house, so she could "trick or treat" there.  She received a few chocolate bars and a shiny apple.  I was very pleased with her when she chose to eat her apple over all the sweets that were jam packed into her bag.  See below: 

Let's jump back about a month, as we had a big celebration in the house.  Miss A turned 7!  We had a fun birthday party with our family and a few close friends.  I called this birthday her "Lucky 7" birthday, b/c she hit the jackpot in gifts this year.  Feel very blessed that we have such amazing friends and family, who enjoy celebrating with us!
For this blog, I'll leave you with a few photos from her birthday party:
