Get ready for an entire post devoted to all things baby. Seriously, this is all that has been going on in my life lately! Just to catch you guys up, I’ll be 36 weeks this week. In fact it's exactly one month away from our due date today…I’m feeling a bit of heck-ya / yikes, it’s go time! So as you can imagine, the baby is on the brain every second of my days!
A couple weekends ago, we traveled down to Athens and spent time with Derek’s family. This is definitely our last road trip before baby girl comes. Traveling in a car (especially Derek’s car for some reason) is pretty torturous for me. Saturday night we enjoyed a pre-shower dinner celebration with Derek’s parents. Sunday was the big shower with Derek’s side of the family.
The theme of the shower was ribbons and buttons…an extension of my gender reveal party. Basically, it was adorable!! A lot of the décor that was used was made especially for our daughter’s nursery. It was so nice and thoughtful to have all these decorations to take home to fill up the nursery!
Our little girl got her first pair of pink Uggs and to say I was excited would be an understatement!! Oh ya, and Derek came….how adorable is that?! He’s such a trooper. And so helpful to have him there to write down the gifts we received and carry everything out to the car. The shower was right next to the local pizza place we would always go to after football games in high school.
After the shower when I was getting in the car, Derek surprised me with a large pizza from there. Seriously best.idea.ever!
A huge thank you to Derek’s family for such a great shower. Every detail was perfect!! Plus, now the little girl is set so she can come any time now, ha!
Basically, every week night is filled to the brim. We are either doing some type of date night (trying to get in as many of these as possible before she comes) or I/we are working on our to-do list. I have been feeling a major sense of anxiousness of getting everything crossed off of our list. So, Derek and I sat down and made a priority list and stuck it on the refrigerator. This made me feel better for for about 2 seconds. For some reason, Derek doesn’t have the sense of urgency that I do. On one hand, I keep saying that our little girl is welcome to come early. On the other hand, there is so much to get done before she gets here! Eeeek!
I continue to work on my “bump book.” This is something that I’ve worked on since we found out we were pregnant! I have included things such as how I told Derek, ultrasounds, weekly bump pictures, thoughts about each trimester, baby showers, decorating the nursery, maternity pictures, etc. I think it will be a great way for me to remember this pregnancy and look back it!
And lastly, everybody wants an update on Brutus…am I right? Well, he doing great. He absolutely knows something is going on…I’m sure he has no idea though! We have started putting all the little lady’s stuff out in the house so he is able to get used to it…
He is extremely skittish around these things. He really doesn’t want to check them out and if he has to go around them, he is very unsure. For example, I set up the pack n’ play the other day and put it in our dining room. Well, his dishes are in the kitchen right next to the dining room door frame. He became very frustrated after I poured his food because he wanted to eat but thought the pack n’ play was going to attack him or something. Once I plopped down beside him, he went to town on his food. Thank goodness I was there to protect him ; )
That’s about all going on in our lives. Hope everything is fabulous with you ladies!
