On Tuesday, Maddox Jeffrey Mundie made his arrival into the world! He was born at 2:23 pm and weighed 6 lb, 10.8 oz. and was 20 inches long. I will post pictures and details later, but I just wanted to update everyone! We are loving every minute of this sweet little boy!

New (To Us) Car!

Today Daniel and I made a very exciting purchase! My parents are getting a new car and so after much thought and deliberation, we decided to buy their car from them! I have been wanting an SUV so bad, more for convenience reasons than anything else. Since we got it from my parents, we got a really really good deal on it and I could not be more excited!! It is a Nissan Murano and I have LOVED these ever since they came out. Here are a few pictures I took of it in the driveway...

Probably one of the things I am the most excited about is having something bigger to travel in. When we go to Nashville we always take Chloe with us and we decided that driving my car was not going to work with Maddox and Chloe. Leaving Chloe at home was an option, but we really like to take her with us. The only other option was taking Daniel's truck. This would have worked alright, but all of our luggage and such would have to go in the back of the truck and we'd have to worry about the weather.
Needless to say, I am super excited and I think this is going to work out great when Maddox gets here (any day now!)

Loving Spring Break!

This week is Spring Break for me and I am totally loving it! When I left work on Friday, I tried to get everything prepared as if I was not going back afterwards, even though I have every intention of being there that last week if Maddox has not made his grand arrival yet. The weekend was spent mainly running errands and doing some last-minute things that needed to be done so that was very productive!

I had a doctor's appontment today and everything is looking good! I am 38 1/2 weeks now. I made significant progress at my last appointment but there was no change from last week to this week. I am trying really hard to be patient, and I feel like overall I am doing pretty well! I am finding things this week to keep me occupied and am constantly discovering things that I need to do. I have to admit, there are some naps being thrown in the mix, but I feel like that's much deserved! :) I have finally been having some contractions, but nothing regular or painful yet. I can feel my belly get really tight, but I figure when it's the real deal I will know. I am taking walks with Daniel and Chloe and am just trying to enjoy the last little bit of time Daniel and I have left just the two of us.

I bought a new book today that I began reading and so far I love it. It's "On Becoming Baby Wise" and I had heard about it, but had not read it yet. I am really into it so far. It's all about how to get your baby to sleep through the night so we will see how well it works when Maddox gets here. The book makes some really good points though. Have any of you moms read it? What's your opinion?

Well, I go back to the doctor on Monday, with only 4 days left until my due date, so I will be sure to update you all then. I also need to post a belly picture so that will come soon as well. I hope all my teacher friends are enjoying their Spring Break as much as I am!
