Two Weeks Off...

What to do?!?!

Oh, I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing. Other than wrapping a few presents, this girl is parking it in the relaxation zone.
We took maternity pics last weekend with Arden Prucha at a park near the lake in Fort Worth. She did an amazing job and I can't wait to see the rest.  Here's a sampling...

I've got 9 weeks to go! Yikes...will I be ready? I mean emotionally, I guess I'm as ready as I'll ever be. But right now I'm more concerned about the glider arriving on time and hanging art on the walls. The room just isn't quite finished. That's all I talk about these and baby's room. I am certain Mitch is over it. We're taking a child birth class tomorrow. I'm not really sure there's much I'm going to learn that I haven't already read about, been told about from experienced moms, pregnancy apps or seen on the latest "Baby Story" on TLC.  I just think it'll happen how it happens and I'm not going to stress about it. So off we go tomorrow to practice how to have a baby (like you can actually practice) and all that jazz. Mitch needs more insight than I do. I'm around babies often enough to have a clue. Next class...breastfeeding. My mom laughed when I said I was taking this class. She said something along the lines of, "Well you just stick your boob in their mouth and that's about it." I'm hoping it goes that easy.

Hoping my brash comments never offend anyone, but then I really care?!

Month 7

Only 11 weeks to go!!! EEEEEKKKK!!!! So excited :)

at Rebecca & Jonathan's Wedding recently
realized how NOT fun it is when you can't have a drink
but the wedding was fun & the bride was gorgeous of course

So Stella's measuring a little over 3lbs and however many inches long (I can't remember). That's about a week or so ahead. She moves around all the time, which is a delight. Sleep is getting a little more uncomfortable, especially with two dogs fighting over who's sleeping right next to me. My hips are killing me!! I'm a stomach sleeper, so there's nothing more to say than it sucks :/     Otherwise I feel pretty good.

Here are some recents...what's up with me not using a camera these days?! I never take one with me anywhere and then I end up with phone pics. Oh well. Goal of the week...start taking pics again.

A few weeks ago...month 6

The Star of the Show at 28wks
She's got a set of cheeks on her & a round belly

I'm busy from now until the middle of January, so if you want to make plans...I'm booked...except the week before Christmas, in which I will probably fill my time with last minute holiday details and completing the baby's room.

Who's ready for the holidays and my two weeks off?? This girl!!
