As of tomorrow I will be 31 weeks pregnant. And, to be honest, I still can’t believe it. Even though we have an almost complete nursery, and I have lots of baby items around the house, I *still* can’t believe we are going to have a baby in a few months.
I can’t believe that I am past the months of infertility, and many trips to the doctor.
But, you have to understand, this is coming from a person that still can’t believe she has a boyfriend.. ha ha… (now husband of 7 years!).
This is the end of the school year. It is the craziest time of year for teachers. But, it is so nice to have a three day weekend before the last few days of school. Our last day is Thursday, and we get out at 11 AM. HOORAY.
My homeroom had a surprise baby shower for me a few weeks ago. I couldn’t believe it! I was so surprised, I cried. The kids were so excited, and I just loved it. I also had my baby shower with all my bff’s and their mom’s, and some family friends. My bff from California came in for it, and that meant a lot to me. It was a beautiful shower thrown at my friend Amy’s house, hosted by her and my friend Beth, and Tracy (from California). I received so many nice things. This coming Friday my staff is having a shower and in June my giant family is having a shower for me. So, to say this baby is going to be spoiled is probably the understatement of the year. I feel very lucky to have so many people in my life that already love this baby. One of my loyal readers, my Aunt Angie in Arizona (shout out, Angie!!) is coming in for the shower, and that means so much to me. I start tearing up every time I think about it. I love my aunts so much.
Well, I think it is time for some pictures. Here are the last few weekly pictures.
And, here is a picture of my dad and my husband building the crib….
And the highlight of the nursery is some custom painting that our very dear family friends got us for a shower gift. It turned out even better than I could have imagined. The theme of our nursery is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” and since our house is a one and a half story, the nursery has a little dormer area that we are turning into a reading nook type area. So, they painted in that area, and here is what it looks like. I love it so much.
Another one of my favorite gifts was a onesie from one of my friends at work. This is the school where I Teach, and also my alma mater!!
Well, I have to go finish up grading so I can do report cards. I hope you all have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!!
