Again, I almost forgot about my OB appointment this morning. Everything was good - still measuring on track, baby's heartbeat in the 140s and I got to meet one of the docs in the practice that I hadn't seen yet. He was pretty nice. Makes me happy - as you don't really get a choice on delivery day who 'catches' the baby, and so far - I like all the docs in my practice.
This weekend was all about having fun. I was more than a bit burned out from the week, and Aaron insisted that I continue on with all my weekend plans. Saturday I had a BLAST at the Sheep and Wool festival - you can see the fun here. And on Sunday, I had my 'surprise' baby shower. I put surprise in quotes because my mom totally told me about it on Thursday. I had received some cute crib sheets in the mail from my cousin, and I called my mom to talk. I mentioned the sheets from Beth, and she said 'Oh - that is because she can't come on Sunday'. And I said - 'On Sunday?'. You could hear crickets on the other end of the phone line. But another person blurted about it on Friday - so at least she wasn't the only one.
Anyway - all my friends were there, and it was great. For big ticket items, I got my swing and my play station thingie. Yet another benefit of being one of last in my group of friends to get pregnant, is that I have friends with lots of stuff that I can borrow for this baby - like a car seat, baby tub, bottles, bottle liners, pack-n-plays. Sometime this week I'll start asking for those things that were offered up, but I didn't want to take until after the shower. As for the other gifts at the shower?
These are Aaron's favorite - hand made bibs:
I was starting to stress out that I had minimal clothes in the house for this baby - but those fears are now set aside:
Next up? Baby books! One of my pals has 2 sons, and they helped pick out the majority of the books pictured here... but had a lot of trouble wrapping their brains around the fact that we didn't know if it was a girl or a boy:
