This past weekend I also had my first shower, which was thrown by Mrs. Murrin and Courtney. I had so much fun and Charlie got a lot of great things, he now has more clothes then his dad and he is getting close to his mom. Aside from clothes Charlie got his swing, some toys, diapers, a blanket to match his bedding, his travel system and many of the everyday necessities. My mom also gave me his coming home outfit, which she smocked for him. Unfortunately with all the cameras there we didn't manage to take a single picture so I am sad to say there will be no pictures to check out this week.
Here's to another week down and getting closer to the end. Hard to believe there are only 2 months to go and we will be posting pictures of our son.

Now for some more exciting news, Charlies bedding came in yesterday and it looks so good. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out and it looks great in his room with his whales. In the second picture you can see that the inside of the bumper is different from the outside. With the bedding getting here Josh and I are now one step closer to bringing this baby boy home!
Finally, I had to include a picture of my wonderful glider and ottoman. It came in last week and I have already spent a few nights reading in it. It is so comfortable and I am so pleased with how it all turned out.
Hope you enjoy all the pictures, my next appointment is on Friday March 28 and my first shower is Saturday March 29, so I have a few exciting events coming up in the following week. Stay tuned for more pictures.
31 weeks down 9 to go! Happy Easter to All!

The nursery is continuing to come together, I picked up my glider and ottoman yesterday. I also have picked out the fabric for the bedding and should be ordering it on Monday. Molly did a great job of putting something together for me and I can't wait until it gets here and is on the crib. Once that is taken care of the nursery should be complete and will be waiting for Charlie to get her.
Now on a non baby note, Dixie has found a new hiding place in the nursery. I was sitting in my glider last night enjoying it and reading Babywise and Dixie came in the nursery to join me. Before I knew it she had crawled under the crib and was laying down. I honestly didn't think she could make it under but she proved me wrong once again. She may be a little disappointed when the crib skirt gets here since that will prevent here from crawling under the crib. Below are a few picture of her under the crib. I though it looked like she was in dog jail. I hope you all get a good laugh out of these.

Charlie has started to make me a little more uncomfy these days. He has started to get up under my rib cage with what I assume are his feet and when he does that there is no getting comfortable for mom. I know it is all for a good cause so I try not to complain to much. I have also started to have some Braxton Hicks contractions,which is typical for this stage of pregnancy, they aren't painful but my stomach does get rock hard for a minute or two and then goes back to being the way it was before.
On another note I am working on Charlies blanket and trying to get about 10 rows finished a week in hopes that it will be ready for his arrival. I am also reading all my books and to date my favorite as far as info goes has been Babywise. It is teaching me how to get the baby on a schedule and the common mistakes some parents make in the first few weeks. I highly recommend it to any pregnant women, a big thanks to Molly for telling me about it. Below is a picture of me at 29 weeks for those who want to see how he is growing, there is not much of a difference from the last one I took. I am going to try and post these weekly or biweekly.
Also we had a nice little snow yesterday, Josh and I were surprised to wake up to so much. Dixie had a lot of fun especially chasing the snowballs that the kids were throwing for. She definitely thought they were toys and tried to play with them. Here is a picture of the house from Saturday and a picture of Dixie playing.

It looks as though things are trucking along as I start the 3rd trimester and my next appointment is on March 14. I know that things will start to fly by now as my appointments are now 2 weeks apart and not 4 weeks.
