After postponing the landscaping in our backyard (buying stuff for the baby took priority for a while), Scott was finally able to get the rock & dirt for the rock wall.
Our friend, Jonathan, helped Scott haul the rocks to the backyard.
Ready to put the rocks in place The dirt to fill the planter
Scott's dad picked up a few boulders to add into the wall & to use in the waterfall (a project for November?)
The missionaries came over & wheelbarrowed dirt from the driveway into the planter while Scott and his dad arranged rocks for the wall.

I had my 40 week check-up today, & nothing has changed since I last went to the doctor 1 1/2 weeks ago. I am patiently (for the most part) waiting for our baby to arrive. I'm just excited that he'll be here so soon! I've already convinced myself that he'll be 2 weeks late, so I don't get my hopes up that labor will start any second. I just figure that the physical discomforts of waiting an additional 2 weeks past my due date is nothing compared to the emotional, mental, & physical pain of waiting 3 years to even have a child. We're just so grateful for this miracle in our lives. Thanks everyone for your love, encouragement, & prayers.

Make a guess

When do you think our baby's coming, and how much do you think he will weigh? His due date is Oct. 12 (9 days away). I went to the doctor yesterday, and he gave me some updates, as well as an estimated birth weight depending on when I go. Can you make a better guess than the doctor?

Painted House: Results

Living Room Kitchen Dining Room: Scott & our neighbor, Alan, installed the bead board - as noted in an earlier post, but now it's all filled in & painted. Entry: I love putting the Fall decorations out - I don't have many, but they sure are beautiful. Family Room Laundry Room Nursery: not everything is in its exact place yet, but it's almost there.

Study accent wall: I'll hopefully have a big cork board covered w/ some matching fabric up on the blue wall soon Master Bedroom
Pictures of the guest rooms are coming soon. They still need to be put back together all the way (or at least more than they are now).
