A few years ago, we visited my Grandfather up in Young Harris. He has always been one of my favorite people and fills this world with charisma, respect and charm. He looked at each new day with joy and when asked by strangers how he was doing, he would respond "Gettin' better every day!"
Well, we were shooting the breeze and he was talking about how him and his current wife met, and how it was his goal to court her. That stuck with me because I know that was his character.

When it came time to name our son, I was taken back to that conversation.
And that's where Courter came from.
It is my hope that our son will be filled with charisma, respect, and charm just like my grandfather. And that he will love others and be a strong Christian and always look for the joy and good in people.

Happy June!

This promises to be an exciting month!

First, my parents are throwing my cousin and I a joint baby shower this weekend. She is due with her second baby girl a few weeks before us, and being that we are rather close, a joint shower sounded like something right up our alley!

Second, our summer series at church starts this month. I can't wait to get back into some Sunday evening activities and get reconnected with our group!

Third, big things are happening at work! We are getting a new website, my temporary replacement is starting training in a few weeks, we have a new customer service rep starting that same week, and we are in the midst of a huge branding project! That, along with small daily activities makes for busy days an busy weeks. But, it's all worth it!

Fourth, Father's Day is a few short weeks away! I want to do something for G that goes above and beyond, but I'm not exactly sure what that will entail yet... but I do have an idea. :)

Fifth, baby boy!! That's right, sometime towards the end of the month, he will be here! And our lives will never be the same! I, of course, am full of emotions and wonder at what this little boy will be like. We are so excited! He is still measuring big and is moving around nicely! Recently, he has been all up in my ribs and every now and then I wince. Growing a baby is such a interesting/cool experience, and I am so honored that God has allowed me to experience it!
I am in the nesting stage. I have an overwhelming need to be at home getting everything organized! I want to prep all of the baby gear and get it set up in it's place, wash some of the pertinent clothing and get the hospital bag packed. And it will happen... soon!

34 weeks and 3 days

That's all for now!
Cheers to an ever-exciting and momentous month!
