GEEZ... I suck at posting recently... oh and less than 100 days!!!!

OK, I feel terrible. I haven't posted since the 3rd of June! Yikes. I'm a slacker and my house shows for it too! Ahhh!!!!!!
Here at the Emitt household we have been EXTREMELY BUSY! We just got back from camping at the lake (where we had been since last Wednesday) and we are headed down to the River until Sunday. Busy, hot, and fun times! We've recently had a few milestones in our pregnancy:

1) We are now less than 100 days away from holding our little girl! Yay! That's less than 14 weeks!
2) Saturday, the 4th of July, will be our first day of our third trimester! Hooray!
3) on the 5th of June Kenny finally felt Jade move! (tears!)
4) Jade had the hiccups on the 10th
5) It is getting closer and closer to our baby shower! Yay! 5 weeks!

I am officially stressed out though... I have so much to accomplish in the next 2 weeks!
VBS starts at our church on the 13th of July. I feel like I am slacking this year because I've been too caught up in "Jade World" dare I say I've been a little jaded! :-) If I can just get that behind me I am sure I will feel a lot better, however I don't want to disappoint our church either. I'm taking my VBS stuff to the river so atleast I will have something to work on while I'm there. I also am trying to get a address list for the shower invitations ready for my sister! She is making the most adorable invitations. Here they are:

So you may not be able to read it very good, but it is cute I think. So my style, so that makes me proud. I'm just excited that My sister is so awesome at this kind of stuff. She is also making the cake! What a talented family I have! P.S.- This is an invite to you all who read my blog. Don't worry official invites will be sent, but consider yourselves lucky to be the firsts to get a glimpse at them! :-)

In other news... I am so excited about Lenora coming home tomorrow!!!!! Yay! I say Home, I guess technically Arkansas is not her home, but I am ECSTATIC that she will be here! She gets to find out what the baby is "hopefully" today! The time delay from Cali to Arkansas is KILLING me! I can't wait to go shopping with her when she gets home. yay!

Well I guess that's all that has been going on! I'll end the post with some of my favorite Jade things so far! (I can't wait to go register for the baby shower! Woo HOo!)

Her Tutu onesie! Larry Plumlee is already ready to take her pictures as soon as she's born!

Our 3 year anniversary!

Well today is our 3 year anniversary! It's so crazy to think how fast time flies! It is just so much more special this year thanks to our little miracle! We are so in love with our little girl that it is hard to not just break down and cry every day when I pray and thank God above for finally answering our prayers! I have this little calendar thing on my desk called "Great Expectations" it's for new moms, well today I flipped it over and it said "Remember...Nothing you do for children is ever wasted." - Garrison Keillor I was sitting here just letting that sink in and I told Kenny last night that there won't be a day that goes by that Jade doesn't realize just how special she is to us both! All the fertility treatments, all the money spent in doctor's visits month after month, week after week, it was all so WORTH IT for this beautiful baby girl that we will meet! It is just so overwhelming the amount of love that I have for her already! Me and Kenny just are so amazed and blessed by what God is doing inside of my body right now!

God has truely blessed me with a wonderful Husband who is God fearing, nurturing, caring, successful, hard working, and the most loving person in the world! Kenny has always said that he knew he was going to marry me. He watched while all of the other boyfriends in my life came in and out, crushing my heart, and leaving me vulnerable. Kenny prayed for me to stay safe through all of the boyfriends, through the drinking problems, and the drug habits. God already had it in his plan to have me end up with him. If someone can really honestly tell me there isn't a God, they are crazy! One night out of the blue I called Kenny, drunk and messed up crying my eyes out. That was the first day of the rest of my new life. I straightened up, put God first in my life again, and started talking to Kenny every day. My life has been so amazing since that horrible night! God is amazing! I love what he does for me. I love that he is a gracious, forgiving God! I love that he sent me this man to care for me and our family! Thank you God for my husband, and thank you God for our amazing little girl! We are so blessed and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank him for this!
