I love Pepcid

Okay I know this is really lame but I need to profess my love to a product called Pepcid. During this last trimester I have been having some gnarly heartburn. I was taking so many Tums per day that I thought I might overdose. At my next Drs. visit I asked for something a little stronger than Tums as I thought I might get Calcium toxicity. The Dr. told me to get Pepcid. It has made the biggest difference. I ran out the other day and I was completely miserable. I am soooooo grateful I was born when I was because I love modern day medicine (and modern day pregnancy safe drugs) :-)

I love this pic!!
It was wonderful to have my best friend from home and her fiance come and visit us here in Kentucky. When they got here we picked them up from the airport and took them to our favorite restaurant...Cheddars! The next day we went to Six Flags and had a great time. I think I was the pressure person of the group. I made them do all the roller coasters all in a row. Hey I grew up with all boys so what do you expect? I think Mark might have tweaked his back with all the crazy rides....sorry! Dont worry I did not ride the roller coasters but I did get to enjoy the great waterpark they have there. On the fourth of July we saw the movie Hancock, which was good, then of course we went shopping! (In the midst of all this there was of course alot of giggling that went on.....that is what we like to do when we are together). We went to the Dicksons for a great BBQ on the 4th and had a firework show. Then the next day we took them to Churchill Downs to see the horse races. It was a fun trip and we loved getting to know Mark better. He is a great guy and we are excited for the two lovebirds who are going to get married in November. Thanks for coming to Louisville! We love you guys!

Baby Shower

Austin's first cake
Cute diaper cake made by my friend Abby

Fabulous friends

Opening some great gifts

A couple of weeks ago my friends threw me a wonderful baby shower. Thanks to Pam, Abby, Janelle and Ashley for a great shower!! It was so nice to get all my Louisville friends together and celebrate little Austin. We are so excited to see what he is going to look like. My vote is that he is going to look identical to Hans. We shall see. Thanks again for everyone that came!
