33 Weeks!

I was 33 weeks pregnant yesterday....are we done yet? Oh my goodness I feel "done"!! That's not a stretch mark on the bottom part of my belly, it's my scar from my appendix :) I'm still waiting for a stretch mark to dare and show it's awfulness on my belly. Each week there are none, I count myself as lucky! I'm still feeling really good other than one spot in my back and getting tired easily. Next doctor's appointment is Friday, I guess we'll see if I am more than 1cm dialated at that point.

Family Hike at Jockey Hollow

It's 70 degrees on a Saturday in October and you are 8 months pregnant....what are you going to do? Going hiking of course :) We headed out to our favorite hiking spot near our house, Jockey Hollow, it's where Washington and his troops were stationed way back when. It is absolutely beautiful and Fynn had never been before. Both the pups were in absolute heaven!

Checking out the water....Fynn hopped right in!

Jakey and cute!

Some nice man saw us struggling to get a picture and offered to take a family picture.
It was a great weekend, and so nice to be outside. Sunday we started childbirth classes, wow, that some reality setting in!!! 33 weeks today, we'll get a picture tonight and post it. I'm ready to be done now :)

Rochester Shower

Last weekend Mark and I drove to Upstate on Friday night, the trip up and back were probably some of the easiest driving we've ever encountered on this route! Thank you for good timing, nothing worse than being stuck in traffic on a Friday night after a long week. My shower was Saturday at noon and my mom, sister and friend Cathi really out did themselves, especially in the food department! I think that we could have fed the entire town. Everything was fantastic and I got great gifts. It was so good to catch up with everyone. Here are some pics from my shower.....

A couple of my cousins (Courtney and Amy) and me before everything got going!

We played games....some people were nicer than others :)

Nana and Papa got the baby a ducky outfit!

GG crocheted the baby two blankets, here is one!

Amy, Carrie and Aunt Cheryl got the baby a cute "First Christmas" outfit :)

Then it was Olivia and Emmalee's turn. Liv's presents were way overdue, we were hoping that she'd be able to come to the American Girl Place store and pick out her own gifts. Instead she got a couple of books and PJs for her doll, and matching PJs for herself.
And Miss Emm will be 5 years old soon, and that means the Big Girl Birthday present!! She was so excited, she thinks Kit is the best.
On Tuesday I was 32 weeks, grow baby grow!
