Watch Me Grow Part II

At 26 weeks! Can you tell I'm a little tired?

My 27 week belly is getting a sweet kiss from my niece Zoe!

28 Weeks! The beginning of my third trimester!

29 Weeks with my fellow preggo friend Leslie! She is scheduled for a C-Section the day before my due date and is also having a boy! It's funny to see how different we are carrying our boys!

Do horizontal stripes make me look fat? Or just 30 weeks pregnant?

Procrastinators Unite!

I never used to be a procrastinator. I promise. In fact a lot of times in college my mantra was "Why put off until tomorrow what can be done today". Wasn't it Ben Franklin that said that? Anyway, those days have apparently left the building and bolted the door shut. You may recall when I posted my Goals for 2010 that one of my goals was to finish Parker's Baby Book. I am very proud to say that I have started writing in it! Yay! One page has a family tree and I distinctly remembered having a similar page in my wedding book. I figured the easiest thing to do was to get the wedding book out and copy the names. I know it's horrible that I don't automatically know the names of all the Great Grandparents. Sue me.

I proceeded to get the wedding book out. Being a day dreamer though, I can't just take something like that out and flip to the page I need and shut the book. Nope! I sat down, and opened it to page one and began to read the entire book. Do you know what I discovered? I NEVER FINISHED MY WEDDING BOOK! UGH! There were so many pictures that needed to be taped in and parts that needed to be filed in. Including, you guessed it, the family tree! So much for my wedding book being helpful!!! The thing that really gets me is I never wrote in gifts and who gave them to me. I think I have one list from one of my four showers. But other than that I hardly remember what most people gave me. Great. Granted, I've learned from my lesson and I am going to start writing the list of who gave what present to Parker in his baby book today. Or....tomorrow.

Parker's First Package!

Two big packages arrived in the mail from one of Parker's great aunt's a few weeks ago! I was so excited to dig in and see all the goodies he received. By the time I was finished going through everything, I felt as though our house had been visited by Santa Claus! I mean, look at everything! Afterwards I sat in a chair and just stared at all the cute baby items for about twenty minutes because I was so overwhelmed. Blankets, bibs, pacifiers, jumpers, shoes, you name it: He got it! I have a feeling he is going to be one spoiled bundle of joy!
