Baby Post- Week 20

Week 20 already?!  You are going to be here before we know it! 

Let's see, where to begin?  We've had a very eventful week!  Your dad finally came home this past Wednesday night.  Yay!  It was such a relief...even though I knew it was only a training exercise, I couldn't help but worry about him.  He said everything went pretty well, but he was definitely glad to be home!  Cam and I went to wait for him at one of the parade fields where he works around 7:00pm.  All of the wives got really excited when we saw the planes fly over us...we knew that was them!  It was about 9:00 by the time the guys got to the was dark, but we were all trying to catch a glimpse of our soldier.  We had to wait for them to unload all of their gear from a truck, then they were released to come and greet was so exciting!  I wondered if Cameron would be awake to see Daddy arrive...he was!  He was extremely tired and a little cranky, but I think he felt all the excitement going on and was able to stay awake.  We're so glad he's home!
Here's your dad's company at NTC- Fox 51st
July 27-August 22
On Thursday we went to walk around at the mall...we had a nice time, but we noticed that Cam had started coughing and sneezing.  We were going to go eat out, but ended up ordering pizza so we could get him home.  Thursday night he barely slept, so we decided to take him to the doctor Friday morning.  The doctor said he just had a cold...but it was a bad cold!  He couldn't sleep all day, even though he was so tired.  We were up until about 10:00pm trying to get him to was another bad night.  Saturday he was finally able to get some good rest and slept through the night, and yesterday he seemed to be feeling much better.  This was the first time he's been really sick (not counting a two-day stomach bug a few months ago, which wasn't bad at all).  I felt so bad not being able to do anything for him besides try to make him comfortable, which was nearly impossible.  I'm so glad he's feeling better and hope we don't have to go through that again soon!!  It was not the way I envisioned our relaxing weekend with Daddy going :/ This Friday starts a four-day weekend during Labor Day, so we can try again...hopefully we'll all be healthy :}
Throughout the chaos of the weekend, Dad got to feel you kick!  You are already quite the attention seeker ;}  Whenever Cameron would start kicking, he would stop as soon as your dad tried to feel him.  He only got to feel Cam a few times during the whole pregnancy.  However, when Daddy puts his hand on my tummy to feel you, you start kicking harder!  I have a feeling you're going to enjoy the spotlight! 
I'm very excited that we get to find out if you are a boy or girl in 6 days!  Then we can start getting everything we need for you.  Your granddad has finished your nursery in Georgia...all we have to do is decide on the "theme" and he can start painting.  We're moving in 2 short months!  There's a lot to do...whew.  I'm tired already!  Here's what your room will look like if you're a girl:
And if you're a boy, maybe something like this (still undecided):

So, hopefully we'll be able to announce "boy" or "girl" in next week's update!  And maybe a name, if Dad and I can agree on one!  


  1. I like the woodland critters, for boy or girl! It's adorable! And some of those animals never go out of style so you'll always be able to find stuff to go with it. :)

  2. Not that I'm good at this game, but it sounds like you've got a Daddy's Girl on your hands already, the way New Baby performs for Daddy on command ;)
