Baby Shower

My mom threw me a baby shower on Saturday. She did a great job and I had a lot fun.

It was a beautiful day and full of great friends and family. I'm so blessed.
I only got like two pictures so thanks Barbara for sending me these.

Evan got tons of stuff he needed and even more stuff that he will look adorable in. I can't wait to take his picture in every outfit he got! OK, that's a bit much, I'll try and resist.

Thanks to everyone that made this day so special.

32 Weeks

Two months to go.

55 days.

Nothing too exciting to report at this stage, just some minor gripes.

Sleeping has become increasingly difficult. Not only can I not get comfortable but my mind just races constantly. It's like the abestmindedness that I have all day long goes away at night and that is the only time I can complete a thought or remember the most random things. Like that I forgot to call a vendor back or where I put my ipod that I misplaced. Seems like my most frequent moments of clarity happen at about 3am and it lasts until about 5am. Then when I arrive at work my brain tends to shut off. I sure hope this goes away after he is born, I don't think I can stand myself being this ditzy forever.

Apart from my mental state my physical ailments are not too bad at this point. I of course have heartburn almost all the time. And Evan seems to be pushing into my lungs so I'm slighlty short of breath after I do just about anything. I also have the occasional episode of edema (swelling) of my feet after a long day at work. Just in time to show off my cankles in capris and flip flops. Woo hoo!

Things I miss...

Cold draft beer.

Having energy.

Being able to bend over and pick something up without looking like an idiot.

Medium rare cooked steak.

Non-maternity clothes.


Sleeping longer than 2 hours consecutively.

Did I mentions cold draft beer?

Now enough whining! It's all fine. I'm still not saying I love being pregnant but I really do like it. I try not to complain too much, I do know it will all be worth it.

One thing I do love is every little nudge and kick. He's a very active baby boy. And it seems he really like Todd's voice which I think is pretty cool.

I think that's about it for now. Next weekend is my first baby shower which I am very excited about. I'll be posting pics I'm sure.

Lilly Just Because

I just love my dog. I don't care that I'm slightly partial but she's the cutest dog ever! :-)

New Roof

We had some wind damage from the wind storm a couple of months ago. We finally picked a roofer and had the roof replaced. Seemed pretty cut and dry until the roofers started stripping off the old shingles. They found lots of damaged boards and had to replace a whole lot of them. Of course, at an additional cost above and beyond what the insurance would cover. Urg.

The job took them about 10 hours to finish which made for a stressful day. Hammering for 10 hours is pure torture.
But I think the end result looks pretty good. We needed a new roof pretty bad before the wind storm so we are glad the insurance at least paid for most of the cost.

30 Weeks

I had an ultrasound this morning and everything is looking great. 

They estimate he weighs 3 pounds and 13 ounces, which is in the 70th percentile. A little bigger than I expected, the tech said if he continues this rate of growth until my due date he could weigh about 9 pounds. That's only a estimate though and she said every baby is different. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.
