We have lots to be thankful for right now.
Andrew passed his last (and probably biggest) hurdle of dental school - he passed his CITA clinical board exams with flying colors. He is now nationally and state certified and licensed to be a dentist!! The only thing he has left to do now is finish up all of his graduation requirements at the school...which is no easy task, but I know he'll do it! He has to have all of his case requirements completed by May 8 in order to graduate on May 22. I am so proud of him - he is soooo close!
Kelly found an awesome apartment in Downtown Memphis. She's moving up there immediately after she graduates from Ole Miss on May 9. It's in Peabody Place, a block from Beale Street and less than 5 minutes to the nursing school @ UT-Memphis. I'm very excited for her...and a little envious!
And...we have two friends who are preggers!! One is our long time family friend, and she is due at the end of April. The other is a friend from college and dental school, and she is due in August. I went to a baby shower on Sunday for the family friend, and got a real taste of what all the little booger will need! Seems like a lot of work - but I will say there are a multitude of new-fangled gadgets out there to make new moms' lives a little easier.
The April Baby is a "surprise" and the August baby is a boy! Although Andrew and I are on the "three year absolute minimum plan," I go back and forth over whether I would want to know the sex or keep it a surprise. Most of you who know me probably are surprised that this is even a question for me. You probably assume that I'd definitely find out. But still seems kinda fun to wait it out. Would you want to know? or would you keep it a surprise?
On another note...Izzy is growing up! She is still as cute as can be, and lovey-dovey. I love her to death, but Andrew is obsessed. He's really funny with her, and his favorite line is, "she's just a little baby..." He says this when he spoils her, which is constantly, of course.
