So Thankful and Blessed!

We have truly been blessed by so many people over the past couple of months. On August 8th we had a wonderful family shower for the baby. This baby was blessed with so many great gifts and clothing and necessities. We had such a wonderful time celebrating with our families and my brother Ricky did all the cooking for this occasion and let me just say that it was amazing. The games we played were fun (even the guys got into it :) My mom also did so much planning and put so much details into this lovely shower with the help of my other bro Danny.

Over this past weekend two of my friends - Heidi and Heather, threw me a dinner for the baby with some of the ladies from C4 (Carruthers Creek). It was a lovely dinner prepared by Heidi and the amazing cake was made by Heather. We had good laughs, lots of jokes and just a fun relaxing time. We were blessed once again with some more lovely gifts for the baby.

Today at work my lovely coworkers threw a luncheon shower in the courtyard. It was so nice celebrating this time with these lovely ladies who blessed our baby with even more lovely gifts. The food spread was amazing and the strawberry tarts and cake were excellent. We are truly blessed!

Some days I still can't believe that this is all happening and that we are literally going to be parents in the coming weeks. We have no idea what to expect and what's going to happen. We are trusting in God and believing for great things. Saj and I have truly been blessed by so many family and friends and for this we are truly thankful. God continues to teach us and show us that He does supply all of our needs so there is no need for worry, fear or doubt.

We thank the Lord for the wonderful blessings He has given to us. God is so good!

August Already!

I can't believe that we've entered into the month of August. I can't believe that I'm at that point where I can say "I'm due next month." Time is going by so quickly. Before we know it our baby will be here and life as we know it will be changed forever (but in a good way I keep hearing). There's still little things that we need to do to prepare for our baby. We still need to get our nursery painted and set up. That shouldn't take too long, but our goal is to have it done before the end of the month. My friend Christina is coming over tomorrow to help me out with some ideas. I just want to do a neutral colour on the walls. We still also need to get our baby furniture. We have an idea of what were getting so I'm not too worried. Now that we have our pack and play which came with a bassinet the baby can sleep in there, plus some friends had offered their cradle too which we'll probably take as well. I still need to wash the baby clothes and set up a few items. The time is drawing near as each week passes by. This Wednesday we have our Hospital tour. I think it will become even more real to me once we have that tour.

I'm excited for the next few weeks. I will be finishing up work at the end of August, and we'll be spending some time at a friends cottage this weekend, plus we've got two other baby gatherings coming up. God is good and we are so blessed!
