As promised...

OK, here's a written update for my past weekend. Yes, I know it's Thursday. Yes, I know I've probably forgotten some of the details but maybe it will make this post a bit shorter :)

So, last weekend was a doozy in terms of pregnancy related items! It started Friday night with my Mom and Dad arriving in town for all of the fun. We finally got to meet Ruby, their 4 month old doberman pincher as my Dad brought her with him up for the weekend trip. She's super cute and surprisingly well behaved for a 4 month old pup! She's welcome back any time, provided she comes with a baby gate to keep her in the uncarpeted areas ;)

Saturday morning was started bright and early with maternity photos. I don't have them back yet, and I promise to post them as soon as I do. But I'm super excited. Matt, a good friend and our wedding photographer took them and I know they'll turn out outstanding.

After that, we ran home for a quick change of clothes ... um, yeah, my gap maternity long and leans don't fit so much anymore! BUT, I squeezed my thighs, butt and belly into them anyway for the shots! we went off to our 3D ultrasound. We brought both sets of grandparents and Grandma (my mom) made an attempt to find out our little munchkin's name. She said if we yelled her name, she'd roll over and give us a better shot... yeah, nice try Grandma! You already saw the best shot below, so I won't bother re-posting :) It was a great experience and I have to limit my exposure to the shots as I start to tear up thinking that little peaceful face is just growing inside me! It's amazing to think about!

Back home to change once again and then off to my shower! My hostess, Becki, did a fantastic job! Her house looked oh, so beautiful! And, although it was a bit toasty outside for our liking, we had a great time and got to eat outside and appreciate the warm California day. The guest book was this book signed by all guests in attendance. Very cool. She also had a few games, but in true Becki fashion, none embarassed anyone (i.e. no dressing up with toilet paper... yes, I know that's a bridal shower game!) It was good to see everyone there and crazy to think that the next time I see a majority of those in attendance, I'll be holding a little baby girl in my arms.

The rest of the weekend just involved hanging around with family. I think after this first shower, my eyes were opened a bit more to the fact that I'm really getting down to the last few weeks. It blows my mind. I can't believe we're going to be a family in a very, very short period of time!

For fun, I've included a poll on the right hand side of this blog. A good friend of mine doesn't seem to think that I'll still be pregnant for my birthday, which happens to fall on June 13th. Do you agree?

I love the guestbook idea! That is too cute, and so perfect for a baby shower. We read Goodnight Moon to Carter every single night.
