Life has been pretty busy these past few weeks between work, the nursery and visiting with friends and family that I haven't posted much lately. SO- this post is a compilation of all that has gone on. Let's go back to June 22-23rd. (Yes, I know that was a month ago- I'm sorry for the delay!) Our friends Luke and Ali were in the area on a business trip and we were able to meet them at AJ's for dinner one night. We had such a great time catching up and eating seafood. This was the first time we have seen them since November when their second daughter, Savannah, was born. They are such great friends and even though we live 4 hours apart we are all able to keep our friendship strong.
July 10th began the Muchnick's vacation down in Navarre. On there way down they stopped by to visit and see our house and the nursery. The next day, Chris and I went out to Navarre and spent the day with all of the Muchnick's (minus Mr. Dan) on the beach or in the pool. We had such a great time catching up with everyone and finally getting to meet baby Grace. The Muchnick's and the Ireland's go WAY back... in fact, Chris and Paul have been best friends since the 4th grade. Most of you know that Chris, Paul and I went to Landmark and then on to Samford where I met Natalie. Fast forward to the spring of our Freshman year of college and Chris and I set Paul and Natalie up on a group date. After several years of dating Paul and Natalie got engaged just a few short weeks after Chris and me. They got married in August of 2007 and Chris and I were married in December 2007. We all wound up in Augusta, GA where Chris and Paul went through PT school. Chris graduated from MCG in 2009 and began working for Premier Rehab, a part of PT Solutions.... and Paul just recently graduated from MCG in May 2010 and is now working for PT Solutions also. These boys do everything together. ANYWAYS- now that I've told you our history, here we are on the balcony overlooking the beach on July 11 in Navarre.
This past weekend Chris, Bailey and I went up to Birmingham to visit family and friends. We stayed with Chris' brother Justin and his wife Adriane- who are expecting a boy in November!!- and had a wonderful time just hanging out and catching up. I absolutely love that Adriane and I are pregnant at the same time. It's so great going through this exciting time together and I cannot wait for our little one's to play! Bailey and their dog, Piper had a blast playing together and I do believe that Bailey was depressed when we left Piper to come back home last night. While in Birmingham we were able to visit with Luke and Ali and their sweet little girls. It was so fun watching their oldest, Mae, play with Bailey. Bailey did so great with the girls and it was very encouraging for us to know that when our daughter arrives that Bailey will be gentle with her! Savannah, 8 months old, loved Bailey, too.
On Sunday, we went to visit Samantha and Steven in there new house. Samantha was in Chris' PT class in Augusta and she and her husband now live in the Birmingham area while he completes his residency. It was fun seeing them and catching up. I'm glad we are able to keep in touch with friends from PT school. Chris' class was like one big happy family and the fact that we all stay in touch is fun.
Didn't mean for this post to be so long, but wanted to catch you all up on our lives lately. We are getting close to putting the crib together. Hopefully by the end of this week we will have it out of the box and put together. I will keep you posted! OH! and I'm 26 weeks today!!!
