Baby Shower

My Family and Friend shower was awesome. I could not believe how many people came! The hostesses did an awesome job. The food, decorations, game, and organization made everything flow so smoothly! Benjamin received everything he needed and wanted times ten, except for his carseat/stroller combo which we were planning on getting ourselves anyways! I can't wait to see Benjamin in all his new clothes, playing with his new toys, and using everything that everyone bought. Thank you to everyone!
So, the third trimester, not really a big fan. I am tired, I can't get comfortable, I get leg cramps, and it feels as if Benjamin is trying to come out of my belly button sometimes. I can no longer get out of the bathtub by myself. John gets the pleasure of watching me look like a beached whale flopping around trying to get in a position where he can hoist me out. Benjamin is already teaching me humility. Either that or he is making me humiliated. Everyday I think I am going into labor. Was that another contaction? Did my water just break? Where's my books, I must check. Yeah, I know I still have over 4 weeks.

Church Shower and My Weekend

I had my church shower last Wednesday. We were overwhlemed with gifts! We got tons of clothes and blankets. He will surely never be naked or cold! The cake was awesome. Of course anything with sugar in it taste awesome to me! It was fun to watch John's facial expressions when I opened the gifts. He was getting so excited, ecspecially if anything had "Daddy" or "sports" on it.
John had to unexpectedly work out of town this weekend, but don't worry I didn't get lonely. I had offered to watch Jenny and Brian's boys so Jenny could go visit Brian while he was in Florida. I know that is can be hard to be away from your husband, and I have been somewhat bored, so I thought perfect timing. I had a blast with the boys. I am not saying they were perfect or I was perfect, but I did really enjoy them. If you take time to watch children they can really teach you a lot. There is no rushing in a child's world, even when it is cold outside. Walking down three steps, isn't just taking three steps. Its jumping off the side, not landing right, so you must do it again and this time add a twist while you are in the air. A two second task now takes 5 minutes. They really do make you stop and smell the roses.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

8 Weeks and Counting...

I can't beleive how fast my pregnancy has gone by. I knew by telling people so early it would drag by, but it really hasn't. I went to the doctor today for my 32 week check up and everything looks good. I am still measuring big (big baby), my blood pressure is good, his heart rate is good ,and he is in birthing position. Let the countdown begin! This weekend John and I have our Birthing Class. As you can imagine John is thrilled. I signed up for breast feeding classes too, which I couldn't talk John into going, so good ole Momma is going with me. We have our church shower Wednesday which is exciting and our family/friends shower on the 19th. Our January is getting full! This is a good thing though, I am not working (outside the home, believe me I am still working in the house) or going to school this semester. I am having a hard time adjusting without a set schedule.

Oh! I made the honor role! I never thought at 26 years of age I would still get excited about making the honor role. This semester was hard, between morning sickness and the challenging classes, I can honestly say I worked hard and earned my grades.

Hope everyone is doing well, and hope to see everyone at Benjamin's shower!
