Carolyn Ann Jackson

Carolyn Ann has arrived! She was born on Tuesday, March 27th at 7:49am weighing in at 5lbs and 13 oz and 19.5 inches long!
The delivery couldn't have gone any smoother and I am feeling so blessed right now with my sweet family. I keep thinking that I'm in the middle of the best dream I have ever had. The Lord has been so good to me, and I'm not sure I deserve it! 
I thank HIM every moment I get.....even at 3am! This baby is such a joy!

Love those sweet feet!

Price and Owen absolutely LOVE their baby sister and Price wants to hold her and help feed her all the time. If only he could take care of the middle of the night feedings and diaper changes, I'd be set! 
Thanks to EVERYONE for all of your prayers. I have felt them abundantly!

Carolyn's nursery is complete, minus the chandelier I have in my mind that I just can't seem to find.....

Her birthday will be tomorrow so prayers are much appreciated!

Can't wait to post pics of my sweet girl!

Final Countdown

I know, I know.......
I'm a terrible blog updater. But in my defense, there has been a lot to get ready for. Carolyn Ann will arrive on March 29th if not before. That is a week and a half away! I am so excited and so shocked. In some ways it has flown by and in some ways it seems like its been forever.
I'll be so thankful to hold this precious baby in my arms and know she is safe so I am counting down the minutes until her arrival!!

In the meantime, we have finished her nursery. It was a group effort and I can't thank our families ENOUGH for all of their help! It turned out so precious and exactly what I want! Perfect for our little princess. I will post pics of that soon.

Also, her closet is FULL! Mostly thanks to some special friends who threw me my PINK showers! I know it was my 3rd child but I have the most WONDERFUL friends who wouldn't take "NO" for an answer.

First my best friends from High School (And Maids of Honor in my wedding!), Rhetta and Kellie, threw me a fabulous shower! It was so wonderful and thoughtful for them to do something so special for their old friend! YOu will see NO pics of me in these photos due to the double chin that I will rightfully blame on the prednesone! :) I wish I had gotten a pic of the hostesses together w/o me but unfortunatly I didnt.....

Next, my FABULOUS friends, Traci & Betsy threw me another PINK shower. If you know them, then you know they always goes above and beyond and this was no exception! :) I sure appreciate all these girls!

And if that wasn't enough, I got the surprise of my life when my College Friends surprised me with a baby shower. I had no clue! I was overwhelmed with gratitude that these special girls drove so far to celebrate such a special time in my life. It's amazing that I dont see these girls very often but our friendship still remains so close and I love EACH and EVERY one of them so!!!

Josh and I aren't rich in money but we sure are rich in friends and I couldn't feel more blessed to have so many special people in my life. The Lord has been so good to me and I just don't know where I would be without such wonderful friends!

Words can't even express the fullness of my heart these days.
Hopefully my next post will include a birth anouncement of my sweet baby! :) I'll keep you updated!
