An Amazing Baby Shower

Carrie and my Mom threw Jackson and I an amazing baby shower on December 5th. Carrie designed an adorable "baby bird" theme and everything was the perfect shade of blue and brown. We had baby bird cupcakes (so delicious!), chocolate dipped pretzels (courtesy of Carrie's husband David), and lots of other tasty treats. Carrie even decorated the chandelier to look like a cute birds nest! It was so fun spending the afternoon with friends and family and I appreciate everyone's generosity so much!

The Nursery

Well everything is finally pretty much complete for Jackson's nursery! As soon as I get my maternity photos back we'll frame them and hang those on the wall as well. He won't be sleeping in here for awhile at least, but it's nice to have everything done before his arrival! I hope that I never have to put another baby item together again! I can't believe how much stuff there is to buy and assemble for one small baby! At least with our next most everything will already be done! I think the nursery turned out really nice and I have to give huge thanks to my mom for buying all of the bedding and my dad for getting us the crib!

Catching Up: Weeks 33-37

33 Weeks Pregnant
34 weeks Pregnant

35 Weeks Pregnant

36 Weeks Pregnant

37 Weeks Pregnant

Wow! It's been an incredibly busy past month and I haven't had much of a chance to sit down, much less post! Between school, master's classes, and preparing for baby I have been pretty overwhelmed. Thank goodness for winter break! I am now in my 37th week of pregnancy and feeling every inch of it! At my week 36 checkup I was 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced with the baby's head fully engaged. My doctor says I'm on track for a normal delivery barring any unforeseen issues. She even said I could come early, but there's no guarantees. Jackson continues to be extremely active and growing nicely. He hiccups all the time and is a quite the mover and shaker, especially at night!
