A few weeks ago some of the ladies at work asked which day would work to have a baby shower, making sure I’d be in the office as we juggle doctors appointments etc. We decided on June 18th would work best. The invite that was sent out is below;
Once the day came for the shower I got a little anxious as the time drew near, but there was the promise of cake and cupcakes that made it that much easier.
I am glad to report that it all turned out very well. Quite a lot of people came, we had cake, played some games (which I was absolutely no good at) and we had that cake, chatted and overall just had a good time. I took just a few pictures and made the collage below. Jeanna and I were lucky to receive with a gift card to spend at Babies R Us and a card that was signed by all my co workers, which I already put in my baby journal.
Now we’re at 36 weeks, well just 2 days shy of 37 weeks pregnant…….just 23 days to go until my due date. I still can’t believe it – it honestly feels like it was just yesterday that we started on this journey and now we’re 3 weeks away from becoming MOMS!!!
We’re both extremely excited, at times I am scared too. I am starting to get scared about labor, I think most first time moms get this way, or that is what I am telling myself anyways. I know that I will be fine, I know that Jeanna will be there with me every step of the way, but for now I am still freaking out – just a little 🙂
Also, my parents arrive in 26 days, I am extremely excited for that. I haven’t seen them in almost 15 months, and I am so grateful that they are able to make the trip out here to meet their 10th grandchild.
OVERALL LIFE IS GOOD, WE ARE CONSTANTLY BLESSED, AND WE ARE THANKFUL TO BE THIS CLOSE TO REACHING OUR GOAL OF BECOMING MOMS!!!
