Holidays Coming Up

Well Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is 37 days away. Trace and I are going home Sunday and we are staying all week. Then it will be time to come back home and start getting ready for Christmas... I have started my shopping but just about everyone is getting a gift card plus we are not buying lots of presents this year like we usually do b/c I dont work anymore and as most everyone knows..... having a new baby is NOT CHEAP!!! :)  Hope everyone has fun shopping and cooking while spending time with family for the holidays!!! :)

Week 35

Everything has been going really good so far with the pregnancy. Trace is growing just like he should and the doctors say that he is going to be a big boy. I am hoping that he comes a little early not only b/c I dont want him to be really big but I am anxious to meet my little man! D got to feel him having the hiccups this morning and it was the cutest thing, he was amazed! :)  Only a few more weeks though and our little guy will be here!!! :)

What a Weekend!!

Well my parents, Seth, and the in laws came up this weekend and we got LOTS done. They helped us rearrange our bedroom and helped us get started on Trace's room. All the painting is done and we got his furniture together. MeeMaw bought his mobile and we put it on his crib. Pa Pa drew up the Clemson paw and Daddy put the finishing touches on it, Seth and I painting the letters, everyone helped with putting the furniture together and it took everyone to do it too! :)
Pa Pa and I had a talk the other night in Trace's room after we got it all put together and I got very emotional, it made me realize that in just a few months I will be a Mommy and that a part of D and I will here and its so scary... I just hope that I can be as good of a Mommy that my own Mom has been to me, then I know that I will have nothing to worry about!!!
Now I am getting ready to get back into my school, work, and housewife routine... only a few more weeks and I will be done with school and work so that I can finish getting myself and the house ready for Trace's arrivial! Hope everyone has a great short week!!!

Fathers Day 2010

Well today is D's first Fathers Day, although he is still just a "Daddy to Be" but we have had a great weekend together. Yesterday we slept in a little then we grilled out steaks, baked potatos, and made salads and we watched "When in Rome." It was such a cute movie and I truly enjoyed spending time with him and it just being us. I know that we will not have any alone time here in a few months so each weekend we take advantage of it and grill something b/c since "Santa" got him a new grill for Christmas last year he always wants to grill. :) Today we have been watching the race and flipping back to the SC baceball game but I havent been able to watch much of it b/c D is determined on watching the race, today is his day so I am letting him have the remote! Baby Trace and I got Daddy cards and a gamestop gift card (thats what he wanted) and I am making him chicken n dumplings today and letting him relax all day! Happy Fathers Day to all Daddys especially My Wonderful Daddy! I love you!!!!

Hello Everyone!! As you all know I am Jamie Templeton and I am married to D Templeton. We were married on December 1, 2007 and we are now expecting our first child on October 5, 2010. I was given this great idea by a wonderful friend to start this blog so that family and friends can keep up with what is going on with me and my family. Although this is our first base I am sure that sooner or later the Air Force will have us moving around so this will be a good way to keep everyone informed of the pregnancy and Trace once he is born! We are naming him after D, Donald Ray Templeton III, but we wanted to call him something other than Little D and Trace was something that was different so it has stuck with us!!

Right now I am in week 24 of the pregnancy and things have been going really good so far, Trace weighs just over a pound and is about a foot long, he still has lots of growing to do. D and I cant wait to meet our very own mini versions of ourselves. :)

I will repost soon and keep you all updated on me and how Trace is growing!!!
