We had a doctors appointment Monday and there was not much that changed from the week before. At least we have been busy the last few days and not just sitting around waiting. We have been car shopping the past 4 out of 5 days thanks to the effects of tropical storm Erin.
The night that it rained for serveral hours during the night, Alex got a call from one of his managers about 5 in the morning. He had been sick all night, so around 6 o'clock in the morning Alex made his way to one of his Norman stores to open. It was still pouring down rain and dark outside. About 2 blocks away, Alex couldn't tell how much water was covering the road until it was too late. As he noticed people waving at him to stop and not go any further, his car died. The guys helped push his car out of the water and about the same time workers from the City came and placed road closed signs out. What great timing! After getting the car to a mechanic, they said if we tried to fix the car more than likely it would have problems a month or so from now. So they declared the car totaled.
Car shopping has been kind of frustrating. Usually we would take our time to find something that we really like and fits our budget. However, I don't really want to find out what it is like going car shopping with a new born baby. I'm afraid that is how it is going to be though. Whenever we find a car that appears to be well taken care of, it has already been sold. Hopefully we will find something soon.

So I haven't kept up with posting once a week. Sorry! We had an appointment today and things are progressing well. I am now dilated to 2 - 2 1/2 and over 50% effaced. We are just waiting now and wondering when the big day is going to be. She is still constantly moving. Tonight during church, she was the center of attention for those sitting next to me. About 4 or 5 people were watching my stomache move all over the place. Besides having a cold/sore throat last week, I have been feeling pretty good. The worst part right now is sleeping. I wake up several times a night to trying to get comfortable.
We finally finished the nursery about a week or two ago.
I guess you can say I was in the nesting stage last night. I spent about 3 hours cleaning and getting things ready for Brinley's arrival. We got the car seat base put in my car and the play yard put together.
I will TRY to be better at updating the blog, especially when Brinley comes. I am sure we will have lots of pictures to post.
