baby fiesta fun

tomorrow is mine and jakob's baby fiesta shower!! lindsey (sister in law) and sarah (friend forever) are giving us a mexican themed baby shower. they even got jakob a pinata! i can't wait to see how that's going to unfold!
jakob + a stick= dangerous. hopefully no one will get hurt! i'm taking our video camera to capture the chaos, hopefully i will be able to post it on here for all to see.

my dad was moved into a regular room friday. he's doing so much better and finally got jello and a popsicle tonight for dinner! he was very excited, having not eaten in 3 days. they're still not sure when he will be discharged. he's sure ready to get outta there though. he's getting pretty cranky being in there! (big surprise.. the hales do not do so well when things don't go their way!!) thanks to all who have prayed for his recovery.

update on dad

just a quick of tonight, he is still in ICU. he was taken off the ventilator and is now on oxygen. we'll find out tomorrow if he'll be moved to a regular room.

i think someone is already jealous

last night, jakob and i were watching a movie and inri decided to crawl into bed and lay on anderson. he's absolutely rotten.

here is a picture of anders room. there are more that i will post later.

soon to be 3

i decided to go ahead and start a blog for family and friends who want to keep up with anderson (and our journey as first time parents!). hopefully it won't bore you to death and hopefully i will keep up with it! we'll see after anders arrives!

i am 30 weeks/2 days today. i had a doctor's appt. today and everything went well. my doctor hasn't had her baby yet (she's due on the 29th), but did say that if anderson decides to come after 38 weeks, she will be the one delivering him. that eases a little of my anxiety about having to get used to a new doctor so late in the game. at least there MAY be a chance she'll deliver him.

i had a family shower in jackson on the 21st. it was a fun time. mama and kristie drove me back to austin on the 22nd with all my goodies. we got into austin at 4:00 and by 6:00, we had anders room all done. jakob was very impressed with our enthusiasm to get things done! he said we were a bunch of crazy women in that room!! it looks adorable. i can't wait until he is actually here and laying in his bed or being rocked in the rocking chair. i just want to see his face!!

i got some news today that my dad was rushed to the ER. he was complaining of abdominal pain and found out he had to get his appendix taken out. surgery went well but aunt julie just called me and said that because of his heart condition and being dehydrated, he is being put in ICU and on the ventilator over night. please pray that he overcomes this and is ok. it's hard being so far away and not being able to be at the hospital.

well, this was a longer 1st post than i expected! i will keep you updated on my dad and my progress with anders.
