Look how tired of winter I am.

I have been enjoying my time here in America...I did like snow, the cold weather when I just came in, but now, I am tired of winter... I can't wait for the summer to be here.

I love my work at sumsung companie, but It is hard when it is snowing to drive down there. Last night, I drove my car 10 mph, it was a long and tired driving. I hope the winter will be gone soon...actually I will love that.

We are doing ok, having fun of Liam movement. He will be a good boy....his mom's back hurted today, can't explain what was it exactly, but all I know is that she couldn't move from the bed. I have to go...I'll continue this next time. It's long....

Showered with Love

Sunday we were showered with love by the members of Southwest Covenant Church. They gave a baby shower in anticipation of Liam's arrival. We had a wonderful time. There was food, games, a devotional time and plenty of gifts to spoil Liam.
One fun game was to see who could finish the juice in their bottle first. Blake was a lot faster than Jill.

How Big is Too Big?

We went to the doctor yesterday for another ultrasound. Although he did not give us any new pictures, he did tell us how much Liam is growing. So at 36 weeks, Liam is already 8lbs 2oz. If we carry him all the way to 40 weeks, he may be between 10-12 lbs. That is one big baby! He won't even fit in all the 0-3 month clothes we have already washed and gotten ready for him to wear.

Magic Belly Button

Liam is busy doing his tricks again. This time he is playing with the belly button. One minute we are sticking far out, then it is sunken, then it is back out again. Funny kid.

Tribute to the Bump

Check out this growing bump. We have had a wonderful time over the past few months feeling this bump move and stick out in funny places. Although it is hard to capture on camera, we wanted to try to at least show how much Liam is moving and changing positions. We always laugh when I become a bit lopsided. He seems to prefer hanging out on the right side of me, which as I hope you can see in the photos above, makes things a little uneven. So here is a big beautiful and ever changing bump.

On a side note, thank you to everyone who participated in the last poll concerning the amount of perfume/cologne that you use. Although everyone who voted said they sprayed 0-3 times, the one person who said they sprayed more than 12 times still believes that this is better, and also holds that if any africans had voted, they too would have chosen +12 or more sprays. I guess some people just think that American's do not know how to dress up. Maybe he is right, most Africans and Europeans that I know certainly dress up more than I do with my jeans and sweatshirts....

A Big Baby

We went to the doctor today and got some new baby pictures. Everything is looking good at 33 weeks and Liam is growing big. They say that now he is in the 84th percentile... which means out of 100 babies, there are only 16 that are bigger than him. They are guessing that right now he is already 6lbs 4oz. He will be a big boy. They want me to do another glucose test just to make sure I am not diabetic and that is making him so big. Here are his pictures. He is playing peek-a-boo and hiding behind the placenta...
Mommy and Daddy are very proud of their growing little boy!

New Year...

Praise the Lord, the new year has come...c'est une benediction du Dieu Tout Puissant d'atteindre cette nouvelle annee. Trois choses me restent en souvenir pour l'annee 2007: d'abord la fin de mon cycle de graduat en Droit Public, mon mariage et en fin l'obtention du diplome de maitrise par mon epouse en Developpement des ONG-I. C'etait une annee de benediction pour nous. Dieu a accomplit tant des bonnes choses malgre les difficultes que nous avions eu. Il ne nous a pas laisse une seule minute, il nous a remis aux railles, chaque fois que nous avions derailler...
Depuis deux semaines, je travaille avec Security Enforcement pour le compte de YRC Logistics qui se charge des productions de la compagnie de fabrication de tous les appareils Samsung...encore une benediction de plus!!! Le travail est trop interessant. Je vais commencer aussi mon nouveau cour le 09 Janvier, le cour de Public Speaking dans le cadre de ma nouvelle faculte de la Justice Criminelle que j'ai amorce ici pour le 4 prochaines annees. Je demande a vous tous de prier pour moi, car en meme temps que je dois combine les cours et le travail, j'aurai aussi un petit bebe a eduquer. C'est une lourde tache.
La vieille de la nouvelle annee, je suis alle au travail, et le 01/01/08 m'a trouve au travail aussi, mais je vais aller voir un film, en compagnie de mon epouse, un nouveau film de Denzel Washngton intitule the " American Gangstar".
Nous vous aime tous, que le Tout Puissant soit avec vous et vous benisse davantage.
