BABY WEEK !!!!!!!

O.M.G. I cannot believe I haven't blogged at all this month!! Shame on me! Work has been so very busy and by the time I get home, all I want to do is relaxxxxx.
No excuse, I know...but it is what it is.
I am SO excited...this week we will have a baby! YES ! On Wednesday, the Dr is putting Kristen in to induce. As of Thursday this past week, he weighed about 8lbs 5oz ...that's one big baby! We are all so excited and cannot wait to meet our sweet baby Joshua. So bittersweet, but so honored that they decided to name him Joshua. Makes me so proud!!! I will be sure to post pictures as soon as I have them. Please keep Kristen in your prayers for an easy delivery!
