Hi all! Sorry I haven't updated our blog for awhile. I keep getting emails from family and friends asking how we are and why I haven't posted. We are doing really well. Our baby is due in 13 days, so we have been trying to get things ready for her arrival. My mom and Beau came up this week and helped me get some things put together for the baby's room. They also helped me finish Micah's room, which turned out really well. I am pleased. Micah seems to like it too.

Speaking of Micah, he still loves his big boy bed. He has fallen out of it a couple of times though. The falls haven't hurt him or even woken him up. He is also learning some Primary songs and loves to sing them, especially if they have actions with them. Last nite, he put on a little show for Heath and performed "Book of Mormon Stories" and "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree." It's so cute to see him learning and enjoying it at the same time.

Micah is excited about having a baby sister, but he is not sure that he wants to share his toys with her. I went through his toy box and took out a bunch of things that were more suitable for a baby. These were toys that Micah had not played with in quite some time. I put these toys in a toy box in the baby's room. Well, Micah was not happy about this and since then, has tried several times to take the toys back. I have caught him on several occassions, sneaking into the baby's room and carrying her toys back into his room.

Heath is doing well, although he hasn't been able to golf as much as he would probably like. He's been really good to do a lot of things with Micah, so I don't have to lift him or chase him around when I'm not feeling well. It's not that I don't feel well, I'm just huge, tired, and quite awkward right now.

I'm good, but more than ready to have this baby. We're all getting excited to welcome Abby into the family. Oh yeah, for those of you that don't know, we are naming her, "Abigail Valerie Garner." We will call her Abby. She is scheduled to be born via c-section on October 9th, 2007.

I guess that's it for now. Hopefully soon, we will have some cute pics of our brand new baby girl to post.
