Full Term

Happy full term baby to me,

Happy full term baby to me!

Whoo hoo, 37 weeks! The is a big milestone for me. Now I know if my little guy were born he has a great chance of being perfectly healthy with no problems. It's just a waiting game from here on out!

I'm trying to find things to keep me busy. His nursery is about 92% complete. We are having wood blinds installed on Monday, and I still want to work on one little project for one of his walls. Hopefully those will both be done this week, then I'll post pictures of his adorable room, my new favorite room in the house.

I think I'm ready to be done with this pregnant thing and meet my son!

P.S. I know Owen's birthday is getting pretty darn close when we have a carton of milk that expires after his due date.

Thank you everyone who weighed in on my 'blonde or brunette' decision. I did decide to stay brown, the reason being, if Owen is born with a head of dark hair, I would be so sad that I just changed mine to blonde. So that was the deciding factor. Thanks for all your input! For a girl who doesn't have a sister, you all are the next best thing!

Baby Shower!

Had my family baby shower this weekend. My lovely sisters-in-law, Tara and Becky, along with my mother-in-law, JoAnn, threw it for me, and it turned out fabulous! The girls found ways to incorporate my favorite colors, foods and activities. I was blown away by how much thought and effort went into this baby shower! I am so grateful Tara, Becky, and JoAnn! Thank you!!!

After chatting and snacking on delicious food, we played a few games, one of them being Baby Charades, my favorite!
