35 weeks

How much bigger can I get? I am hoping he comes early but not holding my breath!

Dave's Man-Bag

Dave has been telling me that there is no way he will ever carry a diaper bag because they look like a purse. About a month ago he sent me a picture of a camo diaper bag, but I told him it was too expensive. I finally decided that since I have been getting all these cute baby gifts that I should buy him a father's day gift. So I ordered it and figured I would hide it for him until Father's Day. Go figure the delivery truck brings the package at 7:00 on a Friday night while I am upstairs so of course Dave opens up the box and the next thing I know he is going through the baby room looking for stuff to load into "his" diaper bag. At least something got him excited about this baby:)

Family "Surprise" Shower

Well I got a huge surprise last weekend, my mom had arranged a surprise baby shower for me with all of my family. It was such a wonderful and fun time, everyone left there husbands at home and my mom, grandma, aunts, sister, cousins and cousins-in-law came from Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Western Washington to Walla Walla to surprise me.

My family from left to right: Marni, Aunt Donna, Samantha, Mo, Aunt Debbie, Jodi and Jenn. My mom, cousin Jaime and grandma are missing from the photo. We had a onesie decorating party, my mom had bought a bunch of blank onesies and everyone decorated them. I must have about 30 onesies and most of them are pretty cute. I did not get any pictures of the ones that Marni made but Dave voted on the 3 best and 3 worst and all 3 of hers were voted the worst. They were the joke of the party!

Jenn and her homeade bug onesie. All of Jenn's onesies turned out really cute!

Samantha, Marni and Jaime.
In the background is the carseat that my Aunt Donna and her family got us. This carseat is for when he outgrows his infant one.

Marni and Me. I love my little sister, she has been so generous to us with this baby. Everytime I come home I have a new box waiting for me and the majority of them have been from her. I can't wait for this little guy to meet his Aunt Marni or as Dave puts it "Crazy" Aunt Marni.

This is the painting that my cousin Samantha made for us to put in his bedroom. It goes perfect with all the colors and of course Dave loved the idea of it being a fish.

Long weekend! I wish I could do more of this right now, my cousin Jodi snapped this when Byson and I were sleeping. Everyone keeps telling me I should enjoy my sleep right now because I will not get any once the baby gets here however I am having a hard time finding the time to sleep with work, coaching track and all these baby celebrations.
