30 Weeks!!

Last Thursday, I was officially at the 30 week mark. Only 10 weeks left! Almost there. I'm still in shock at how fast the time has flown by. Michael and I have been trying so hard to stay as busy as possible and do as much as we can together before the baby comes. People keep telling us how much everything is going to change after the baby comes. Thanks for the wonderful insight, but I know! It already has! It scares me a little bit knowing that things are going to change so much for Michael and I. Laying together on the couch or going out to a last minute movie is pretty much over, at least for quite a while. There are just a lot of things that are going to take adjusting to, but I know everything will work out. I'm not worried about anything and know Michael is going to be a spectacular father. He's been reading fatherhood books as I read my books. I swear, the book he has is more informative than mine. There have been so many times that when something is going on with me, or changes happen, he's the one the explains to me what is going on. Umm...really? Should that be happening. I find it rather amusing. I look at him with a rather confused, yet content look. I just nod and smile. Most of the time his book says, "maybe this part you shouldn't tell your wife as not to startle her." Haha.

30 Weeks and showing every inch of it!!

I get bigger when I breathe!

30 Weeks and 4 days

Michael and I started our parenting classes last week. So far we have just taken the Newborn Class. It went over such things as how to sponge bathe and bathe your baby when they first get home from the hospital. I realized how much stuff I had no clue about sitting in that class last week. When we got there, each couple sat next to a 'baby.' Michael chose the darkest baby in the class and said that it was the closest thing that was going to look like Davis. He's special. I won't be surprised at all if our baby looks absolutely nothing like me. Not like he's going to have blond hair and freckles. I said what if? Michael said, paternity test! It was rather amusing watching all of the guys diapering the dolls in class. Michael is such a sport and just goes along with everything. Tonight we go to our breastfeeding class. On the sheets of paper, it says husband need to go to this class. Michael jokingly asked, 'why? I'm not the one doing the breastfeeding.' My response, pointing to belly,'you did this to me. that's it!' If he actually has any complaints about these classes, he sure does a great job of keeping it to himself.

We are ALMOST done with Davis' room. Next month we are getting blinds and curtains and we just need to hang up pictures. I love his room. Just a few little touches here and there and we'll be done. I'm so excited!!

Michael organized his closet. I separated all of his little clothes :)

His dresser/changing table with glider/ottoman. That is the most comfortable chair. I love it!

His crib! Pretty soon, he'll be home in it

You are an adorable preggo. :) Love the pictures....but I DO NOT want to do it all over again! LOL And you know what I always said to people who wanted to impart "things will change" doom and gloom? I have a life, and WE as a couple have a life. Baby will JOIN our life, not change our life. And that's exactly what our firstborne did - in August. ;) Whatever we wanted to do, we DID. He came along for every early breakfast, movie (if we felt he would be quiet, and he was), lunch, brunch, walk, jog....incorporating them into your life gives them so much more to see and learn to DO. I always felt if you focus on THEM and creating a life around them, they tend to not mainstream into social settings as well...but don't get me wrong. On down time at home, he was THE focus of all hugs and kisses. :) Good luck! I'm popping over from SITS roll call. Happy Tuesday.

Spend as much time as you can together just because you can. Don't worry about how things will change. It will all come in stride and you'll love your family.

CONGRATS on your baby!

you look beautiful! i am sure a ton of people are telling you all kinds of advice and how things are going ot be different and blah blah blah. my best bit of (unsolicited) advice is to do things your own way. you are hubby are going to know what is best, those instincts are there and you have to trust yourselves and eachother over everyone else. you will learn your own way, your best way! your family will grow and be great because that is how you will make it. everyone will want ot put in their two cents, take it with a grain of salt and odn't apologize for doing what you feel is right!

Stopping by from SITS!

You look great and congrats on your upcoming arrival. I made the mistake of going to breastfeeding class with my sister who was also pregnant and we got the giggles. It was so embarassing. Even I was annoyed with us. We always get like that when we are together and we should have known!
