Baby Shower Fun!

I was a little nervous about my baby shower...I never really like being the center of attention and I was apprehensive about making sure everyone felt comfortable and at ease....but I must say the day went off without a hitch! It was the most special, encouraging and fun day ever!

My sweet friends and family worked so hard to make it special for me...and it was beyond anything I could have ever asked for...just so classy and simple. Just what I wanted.

Here are her precious invites! Owls are kinda my special theme for her I had to include one on her invitation...

Here is my yummy cake...I requested Red Velvet and it was fabulous!

My beautiful flowers my sis made...she did a beautiful job on my flowers.

The table...that is my fabric (the runner) for Aubrey's room...more on her room to come soon!

Here are my delicious cookies that my friend made...I won't tell you how many I ate.

Me opening up my wonderful presents...
Me and My fabulous Mother in law

And last but not least...My lovely hostesses
Thanks to everyone who made my day so incredibly special!

I'm a little bummed because most of my pictures from my shower were taken with my camera and the camera was on the wrong setting so they are all in like slow motion mode...oh least I have a few good shots to remember this special day!

Come on by!

30 Weeks Pregnant!

Woo Hoo! We made it into the 30' if I could just skip over these last 10 weeks and be holding my baby girl...wouldn't that be nice?

How Far Along: 30 Weeks pregnant...7 1/2 months!

Size of baby: We haven't had an ultrasound in a few weeks to know exactly...but according to the websites, Aubrey should be about 3 pounds! They always compare the baby's growth to a vegetable and this week that chosen veggie is a cabbage!

Gender/Name: Still a girl...Aubrey Lane

Sickness/Feelings: I still am feeling really well...I started back to teaching so I am on my feet a whole lot more, which has been quite an adjustment...and it is so funny because I can be in the middle of lecturing and Aubrey will do this giant flip in my stomach and I usually unintentionally blurt out..."oh my" or "oh goodness" and then my students just stare at me like..."what the heck is she talking about?" Sometimes I swear she does flips in my reading class just to disrupt my class and throw me off topic! Ha! I can tell we are gonna have a stinker on our hands!

Appetite/Weight Gain: Things are getting really crowded in my belly so adding food just seems to complicate things. I am hungry all the time, but can only tolerate small portions at a time. My acid reflux is roaring it's ugly a terrible way.

Cravings: No real cravings. I have been enjoying granola bars and cereal bars more than usual...but other than that...nothing out of the ordinary.

Movement: Like I said before, she is doing some serious moving in my belly. She isn't just politely kicking or fluttering anymore...sweet girl is straight up doing somersaults, back flips and karate chops. She is making sure I know she is in there!

Big Daddy: Christian is continuing to do great! He is so sweet and attentive to matter how much I complain! He also cracks me up because he is so enthusiastic when I get something a new dress for Aubrey or new bows...he just oohs and ahhs over it. SO sweet!

Upcoming Events: Nothing coming up...we are just counting down the weeks at this point! Each week is one step closer to holding our baby girl!

We recently got a few new bows and hats for Aubrey...we felt it necessary to try it on is our volunteer!
