This year is already on a roll and seems to be flying by! I started school back on Monday with orientation! It went well and I am looking forward to this semester. I know that this is going to be the toughest one due to the fact that it is my LAST SEMESTER! Gosh, it feels good to say that! During clinicals we will be in total control of our patients and we will have 3-4 patients this semester as opposed to usually only having one! So I am excited to get lots of hands on, independent experience! I know it is going to be tough having a newborn at home but Alex is so great and supportive and both of our families are as well so I know it will work out the way God has planned. Speaking of Hudson, I went to the Doctor today and I am 39weeks and dilated to 2cm! He is inducing me on Thursday night at Baptist! I am checking in at 6pm and starting the delivery! I am so excited! We had originally planned on Friday so one extra day is great to me!! I will have a week before I have to be back in class! As long as the delivery goes well and my body handles it as expected then I think/hope I will be able to attend class! My mom is going to stay with us for a week to help us with Hudson and around the house! So that will be VERY helpful! I am really looking forward to his arrival!!! Keep us in your prayers! My next post will have a picture of a little baby boy :)

We had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! Even though we had to do lots of traveling, it was all worth it! We got tons and tons of gifts, as did Hudson of course! We are so blessed and so thankful to have such wonderful families! Alex got the WII so we have been playing it non stop!! It is a really good workout too! I have to admit that I was a little sad that I didnt get to wake up Christmas morning at my moms house like I have for the past 21 years :( But I know that new traditions will be made now that we are starting our own little family. I cooked my first Christmas dinner too for my dad and grandmother and step mom! Even had Christmas place settings and all! You have to agree that not many women who are 9 months pregnant would be willing to do that! Alex was off New Years Day so New Years Eve we went to Star City where Mom and Larry were grilling out and shooting fireworks! There were alot of rowdy kids there but other than that we had a good time! I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of Hudson. It seems like the days are dragging now that I am 11 days away.. my feet and hands remain swollen.. although it probably has to do with the fact that I cant sit still! I know I should be resting and keeping my feet elevated but I get bored to easily! I am constantly running around! Today is a yucky day and the TV is out do to the weather... yay for satellite! Maybe I will force myself to get some rest today!!
