Congrats Melissa! Melissa had Georgia Ann Vargas Nov. 15. She is a beautiful baby girl. It was so fun being pregnant together and sharing stories. She has been a big help to me. We will miss you why you are on maternity leave!! So glad our babies will be around the same age!


Well, I'm 12 weeks and 2 days today! Baby Iffland is now a size of a large lime. I have felt flutters, which feels so neat. Dad and I think it's just the baby saying, "Roll Tide"! I've gained 5 lbs. I'm trying to exercise, and eat right, so it will not be hard for me to lose weight post-partum. It's hard though when all I crave is Chinese, Buffalo Wings, and salt and vinegar chips!! I really crave orange juice a lot. My intuition tells me the baby is a boy. Old wives tales say craving OJ means it's a boy. I would love to have a boy, just praying for a healthy baby though! Thanks to Zofran, I am nausea and vomit free. I'm really tired a lot and have a stuffy nose. Just the normal stuff. Zach and I are so excited. We get to hear the heartbeat Dec. 1. Thank you Lord for this miracle, and all of your blessings. We love you so much!

Gatlinburg 2009

We had so much fun! It was so good to get away by ourselves and have a relaxing trip. I know one thing, I will not go on another trip or big outing during my 1st trimester. Wow, driving around Cades Coves never bothered me until now. It caused nausea city!! Here are some pics. of the Village, Johnson's Inn, Cades Cove (with the prettiest rainbow I've ever seen!), a view from our table at The Peddler, etc. Can't wait to go back for the 28th yr. in a row.
