Well, D-Day has official passed and we are still waiting to see this cute little man! The good news is that if he doesn't get here by next Wednesday I know he will be here for sure that day. The bad news is that it's still a whole week away! I guess I will have one last exercise on patience before he gets here.

The best news is that the Dr. doesn't think I'll have to wait that long but then again she also said at my apt last Friday that it wouldn't be long and to me 5 days was still pretty long!

Oh well, a 7 more days MAX and I'll get to meet this sweet little boy! I can't wait!

Birthday + Little Man Update

No, No, there is not a new little birthday to celebrate in our lives just yet! Yesterday we celebrated Todd's 25th Birthday! He was a trooper because his day was spent doing a bunch of baby stuff! I did my best to make it a fun day but I know it wasn't his ideal b-day. His day consisted of breakfast in bed, lunch at BJ's, shopping for "mommy to be" necessities (he was a trooper), Dr. apt to hear little man's heart beat, and a fun night at work. I don't feel as bad though because as long as little man doesn't make an appearance (fingers crossed he does) he is going to have a birthday weekend as we celebrate birthday/fathers day with my family tonight and Todd's family Sunday. Lucky him!

As for a little man update... Yesterday things were progressing fabulously at my Dr. Apt. He has a very strong heart beat which I absolutely love hearing! After a little help from the Dr. yesterday things could start happening at any moment or things could still take a while. Now that the weather has finally decided to be Summer here in CA I have decided that I am officially miserable! I have a lot more sympathy for all you women who have had babies deep into summer! At least I know the end is near. They won't let me go more than a week over so only 7ish more days for sure unless he comes on his own! I am starting to get very nervous but at the same time I am so excited to start this new journey! Hopefully my next post has a cute little picture for you all to see of our little man!

Candy Land

This weekend one of my good friends threw me a shower for the women from my ward. It was a candy land theme and super cute! She did an awesome job. On top of throwing a fabulous shower she also had time to hand make me some adorable gifts. She made a car seat cover that attaches to the handle of my car seat that is perfect. She also had time to whip up a quilt (in her spare time).

Here is the quilt she made. She is fantastic!

My mother-in-law also finished his afghan she has been working so hard on. It turned out even better than I expected. It is absolutely beautiful. We plan on using it for a blessing blanket too which will be perfect! Thanks Mom Barth! We love it!!!!
It is folded in half in this picture so you can see the border.

I was also able to get a little "fun money" and a store credit for this cute little baby boutique here in town. It allowed me to buy something I never thought I was going to be able to get! I had enough to pick up this adorable Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag. My sister-n-law kept telling me that they are the absolutely best diaper bags and a few of my friends who have them agreed so I was thrilled that I would be able to get one without having to pay the full price. (they can be rather pricey). Todd was making fun of me and took pictures of it so I could blog since he said I was so excited about it. He told me that it's my new love... at least until little man gets here, I think I agree!

The End is Near!

I guess since I have received a threatening e-mail I should update this thing before little man gets here! There has been a lot going on but I am a slacker with pictures so I never think to update! I had my first of 3 showers last month and was so fortunate to get such awesome gifts from great friends.(I guess I should say that because I have so many different groups of friends in this area that it just worked out better to split up my showers to those groups... plus 3 fabulous friends wanted to throw them so why not... right?)

My great friends Katie and Liz threw the shower and have some pictures from it that I will get soon. At the very end I took a few and then more of some of the gifts when I got home.

We both feel so blessed up to this point. We have received more than we ever thought we would and are so overwhelmed with gratitude. I have another shower tomorrow and maybe I'll do better at taking pictures so I can update again. Otherwise, he could come at any time now. I'm over 37 weeks which is considered "full term". I am so excited yet nervous all at the same time! I can't wait to show you all how stinking adorable he is!
