Oakdale Baby Shower

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

This past weekend a super sweet friend and mother-in-law threw me a beautiful baby shower here in Oakdale. I feel so blessed to have amazing family and friends in my life and feel so happy that our son will have such amazing examples through his life. Thank you for everyone that came and for all the wonderful gifts! We weren’t too good about taking pictures but here are some that we took.

Everyone brought a book to start Luke's library. Such a great idea!

Here is a game we played where we had to guess what body part the ultraound was being displayed.. It was harder than I thought, I missed more than half :)

30 weeks

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

So this week I turned 30 weeks. Can’t believe how soon the little guy will be here. So a little update on how everything is going. The baby is healthy healthy and is growing right on track. He is quite the kicker, but I have to say he keeps to a strict schedule. Always awake right before I go to bed and always kicking early in the morning. 🙂 I hope this isn’t a inclination of how things are going to be but I have a feeling he will stay the same.

I am starting to feel more and more exhausted and the back is killing me.. I haven’t had too many food cravings like I did in the beginning, now just about everything looks and tastes good:) I have definitely started nesting, Danny will come home and there will be new home decor, baby clothes, and the power drill laying on the floor and he’ll say “Is this a nesting day?” LOL…. I feel like there is so much to do still and so little time.. Danny completed his Daddy 101 classes this week. I really think he learned so much from it. It’s so cute to have him come home from class and tell me all about what he learned and what he is going to do for the baby. I love listening to him talk about the baby. It makes me so happy and gives me a feeling of peace to have Danny so ready for fatherhood (well ready as any new parent can be).

Well my prediction is still that the baby will come around the 15th.. I am hoping before Christmas! You will find me out walking the streets doing lunges around that time if this guy isn’t here yet.
