Azaylee is one blessed girly!

One of the mom's I babysit for brought me a "couple baby things"! Eek, can you believe how many wonderfully pink outfits there are in these piles?? Haha I counted 135. I got off early today and chose to spend my time wisely, as you can tell.

Also, these are some of the gifts Azaylee has recieved in the last couple weeks. Everyone is so generous! I can't wait to use all of them!

Looks like all that's left to buy for her is a pair of red Chuck Taylor's! ;D

After a year these 2 are actually beginning to like(or at least lick) each other??!? =D

What's going on?

* I am now 23 weeks pregnant and feeling pretty good. 17 weeks left doesnt seem too bad. Besides we have enough work to do before lil' miss Azaylee makes her appearance anyway. Most of the furniture that is going in the nursery has to be sanded and repainted so Aaron will be starting that process next week when he has some time off. ;) I am looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. I picked out a crib and my parents are actually going to be getting it for us! Here is a link to the crib.

*Aaron bought me a car! It is a 2001 Saturn Wagon. He refers to it as my "mommy car." I have never owned a car so nice. Supposedly for the 3rd wedding anniversary gift you are supposed to buy a gift of leather, so Aaron went all out and got me a car with leather interior. =) Im not sure how he will top this next year.

* Our anniversary is next Wednesday the 27th. We are going to camp out in Gaffney, SC at a Chic-Fil-A grand opening. Yes I am 6 months pregnant and yes I am crazy, BUT you can't pass up 52 free combos each for being the first 100 people there! I am getting really excited about going with Aaron. We will probably just stay up all night playing games and talking, and sleep all day Thursday when we get home. We were very blessed to both be able to take off. We have both wanted to do this for a few years, but there were never any openings close by so we are taking advantage of the last time we will be able to do this for a while!

* My sister has been in town for about a week now, so we have spent some time traveling back and forth to Wingate to see Russ and Emily. =) I don't really want her to go home, but I guess she will be leaving Friday!

* We work on the weekends at Hall Family Farm during the strawberry season. We have been very busy! Both Aaron and I have been working 7 days a week. It has been wonderful though. We have been able to save enough money for my maternity leave to be covered.

*And speaking of maternity leave, I found someone to come and help me 2 days a week in the fall after Azaylee arrives! My friend Bethany is going to come on days that she doesnt have classes and give me a hand with the 3 baby girls so that I can continue to work during the fall. Spring may be a different story ;).

SO as you can tell things are going well here in the Forsyth household!

I am seeing less and less of these everyday...

10 years and counting...

I met Aaron in 7th grade. We had several classes together and I always got to sit behind him being that I was a Griffin and he was a Forsyth. I graded his papers, which was always easy bc he never got anything less than a 100. I also listened to all of his funny stories and jokes, which are still mostly the same today, btw. There was something very different about Aaron. Everyone I hung out with used bad language, listened to Marilyn Manson, gossiped and cheated in school. Aaron didn't. He was weird. Aaron was the president of C2J, the school's Christian club, which stood for Committed to Jesus. He talked about church and was very good. I had to know more. So everyday I would pass Aaron notes on the edges of his papers that I graded, or have my friends talk to him. At the time, everyone was "going out." Of course this didn't mean you went anywhere, just meant you were boyfriend and girlfriend....which really just meant you walked down the hall together and passed triangular shaped notes to each other. I wanted that. I wanted to walk down the hall together and talk to Aaron about why he was the way he was. So, I asked him to go out. =) I sent him a note in class with the whole check yes or no section. And he ALWAYS circled "or". Everyday, I got to know him a little better throughout the semester and he explained to me that he was a Christian and really planted that seed with me. To make a long story short, throughout the semester he told me that he would tell me his real answer, not just "or", by the end of the school year. On May 7th, one of the last days of the semester, Aaron told my best friend Molly that I needed to pay attention bc I would get the answer that day. (cheesy, I know, but we were 12 ;) SO all day I watched and finally when my mom pulled up to the lot to get me, I thought oh well....but I still turned around to watch as we pulled away....AND as you can all guess...... 10 years ago today, Aaron nodded his head to me in the car rider lot at 3:47pm at East Union Middle School. ;) AND I just knew I would marry him and make him my very own. I became a Christian over that summer before 8th grade. Aaron and I continued to pass notes, went on our first date at nearly 16, four years later and knew that the Lord had called us to get married. This is a very unusual story and definitely wasn't the easiest way to go about pursuing marriage, but in the end, God has ordained this and made it into a story that honors and glorifies Him.

Thank you for being a wonderful husband, Aaron! Thank you for always following Christ and sharing that with me throughout our journey. You are my very best friend and I appreciate all that you do for me. Thank you for leading in our relationship and taking care of me. I still think your jokes are hilarious and love being able to share in all the inside jokes from so long ago. I LOVE YOU! I am looking forward to all the years to come and what God has in store for us! :)
