Some pictures & other stuff

I thought I'd finally post some pictures from the shower:

Here's me, my mom (left) and my mother-in-law
Rebecca, Lisa, Pam & Me

The guests

The food table: didn't Pam do an amazing job?!

Adorable watermelon baby carraige that my mom made

The dessert table. Can't get any better than cake & Rice Krispie Treats!!!

And here are a couple of shots of the nursery

We had our hospital tour on Thursday evening. It was very informative. They have the coolest labor beds that can do all kinds of stuff. Who knows if we'll remember what all it does when we're in the heat of the moment. But then again, that's what the nurses are for. We also practiced some more relaxation breathing. It's hard to be serious when you're not really in any pain, so we were laughing quite a bit, but I think the techniques will really help when the time comes. I'm going to try and deliver naturally, with no medication, but I know my limits, and am not completely opposed to an epidural. I think at this week's class we're going to learn about all of the different medications and interventions that can take place during labor. I think it's going to be a very important class.

Saturday night a bunch of ladies got together for Rebecca's birthday. We went to Olde Towne Tavern for dinner. It was really good, and the company was great too! We all had a great time just chatting & hanging out. I have some pictures from the evening, maybe I'll post some in the next day or so. After dinner, a few of us went out to a movie. We went to see Step Up, it was so good! I'd definitely recommend it, the dancing and the music were fantastic! I think it will definitely be a soundtrack to buy.

Today was a pretty lazy day, I just never could seem to get motivated. I did work a little on making the "call list" for when the baby's born, I need to get the phone numbers together, but I still have a little time. There are several things on my list of "things to do" before I reach 36 weeks. After that point, I'd really like to just be able to relax & wait for this little one to make his/her appearance. Maybe if I post the list here, it will keep me more accountable, so here goes, in no particular order:

  1. birth announcement list
  2. re-arrange cabinets in kitchen
  3. buy/install window alarms
  4. make list for hospital bag
  5. pack hospital bag (Chris thinks it's kind of silly to put both making the list & packing the bag, but I always do better packing if I have a list)
  6. buy/install closet storage
  7. fill out baby book
  8. prepare birth plan

See, there's not too much! Ack! If you're reading this, feel free to keep me on track.

Now I'm tired from just looking at the list, so I think I'll go to bed. School starts here tomorrow, so traffic is going to be bad. I need to try and leave early for work... See ya next time!
