In our family all we seem to talk about is baby this and baby that. That might be due to the fact that Angie and I are both expecting and are about one week apart. I am due on May 14 and she is due May 22. How we pulled that one off we will never know, but we sure are EXCITED! One thing that I value so much in my life is my family. It helps that my siblings and I are also best of friends. I would like to tell my mom, Angie, Stacey and Jill THANKS! They put on a production to make sure that my family shower was amazing. I also have to brag for a minute about the pictures that you see Jill and I holding. I have been going stir crazy trying to make my nursery just perfect. I asked Jill to paint to personalized pictures for me and they turned out better then I could imagine. I love them. Once I put them in my nursery along with the mobile my and pillows my mom bought me it all came together. I will post pictures soon. I would also like to thank all of my extended family and friends for support Travis and I we appreciate it!
I have the best girlfriends out there. Honestly, I love these girls so much and am so thankful for all that they do for me. Although most people hate to play games at showers they felt they had to do at least a few for me(of course I love to play games - it's the teacher in me.) I know that everyone put in a lot of effort to put this on, but I especially want to thank Brookie and Linds to heading it up. I wish I could post pics of everyone, but I just put a few above. The one of me in my sisters is a peek into the future . . . no they are not all pregnant, but we think it would be cool if one day we all had kids around the same time!
I have worked as a 3rd grade teacher for the past 7 years. I love my job and know that it is going to be hard to leave it. I have gone from Miss Morgan to Miss Fitness to Mrs. Ault and now I am going to be called the best title of them all "Mommy". It truly has bee a sacrifice to leave my job, but I am so grateful that I will have the opportunity to be home with my LITTLE ONE.
I want to thank the faculty and staff. It has been an honor to work with you and I appreciate all of you and the things that I have learned from you. I especially want to thank my TEAM. They are much more than just co-workers to me they are like family. I hope each of you know how much I appreciate you. You are all simply WONDERFUL!
Travis and I feel so blessed to have so many people love and support us during this exciting time. Until you actually have to prepare for bringing a child into this world I don't think you realize how much STUFF they need. Sure we could go without somethings, but it is hard not to spoil someone you already love so much! We want to thank everyone again for all the time and effort that they put into giving us a shower they were absolutely PERFECT!
This year for my mom's b-day she said all she wanted was to spend time with her girls. When I spoke to my dad he said that she would also loved to be pampered. We figured why not do both. Mom we love you so much and hope you had the BESTEST BIRTHDAY EVER!
