Sunday we had Blair's Baby Shower. Even though the rain kept us from having it outside, it was perfect. Jacob and I felt so much love from everyone and we had such a wonderful time! I want to thank everybody from the bottom of my heart that came and celebrated our baby girl with us! And to those who couldn't make it but still sent their love and blessings, thank you too! We are so thankful for the abundance of gifts we received, Blair will love them all!! 

And to my mom and Jacob's mom, thank you for throwing the loveliest shower!

One of my favorite things we did at the shower was have everyone sign the Dr. Seuss book "Oh the Places You'll Go!" and we had them tell Blair their favorite place they've ever traveled to, and what she should experience when she goes one day. It was so fun to read everyone's answers, and I just know Blair will cherish it when she is older!

And once again, THANK YOU for making our day perfect! I can't wait for you all to meet our baby girl!

Blair is 31 Weeks! (Well she was on Tuesday!) She's as big as a bag of 4 Oranges or weighs as much as a coconut!

Things I am loving right now:

-She's getting so strong that it's starting to hurt when she kicks, elbows, or punches at times.
-The elderly man who walked up to us at the store and said, "It's a girl huh?"
-Washing baby clothes and the smell of the baby detergent gives me butterflies.
-Her crib being all set up, with a mattress and all!
-Our Baby Shower is this Sunday, I couldn't be more excited to spend the day with family and friends!
-Little baby socks. (They are the cutest things ever).
-Family that goes above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need. We couldn't do it without you. (you know who you are!)
-A husband that tells me I'm beautiful every single day.

Ever since before I got pregnant I have been in love with silhouette maternity pictures. One evening after dinner Jacob said he would be able to take them, so he drug me into Blair's room and took these beautiful pictures. I love them so much. He just keeps delivering when it comes to pictures! I love how he captured my outie belly-button, (It's just too much! Haha). And I love the simplicity of the pictures, such a beautiful way to show off my bump.

Blair is the size of a cabbage this week and probably weighs over 3 pounds!

We just got back from our 30 week appointment and everything is looking good! I'm even a measuring half a week ahead, so we might be having a November baby instead of December! I guess we will just have to wait and see!

This little girl is feisty already. I love it. She loves hearing mine and Jacob's voices, when we read to her at night she just moves around like crazy. She also loves to play (or so I think). When we lightly poke or tap the stomach she does it right back. (She either loves it or hates it, haha. Who knows!) She has been getting the hiccups more and more often which is a great sign, it means she's practicing breathing and making her lungs stronger. She loves to get over in my ribs and jab them with her elbows or feet or her whole body. 

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday! Jacob took the day off work and spent all day hanging out with me and tending to my every want and need. It was wonderful! I loved getting an extra day to be with him this week, best gift ever. We had dinner with my best of friends Sunday night. It was so good to see their beautiful faces and catch up. I miss them so much because we barely ever see each other because life tends to get in the way, so it was amazing for us all to finally get to hang out! And I get to see them all again in about 2 weeks because they are coming to my baby shower! Meep! It's going to be the best time ever, family and friends. You just can't beat that!

After grocery shopping yesterday Jacob insisted we stop at the field right across the street from Walmart and snap some pictures with the sunset. That boy just know what he's doing! He got some amazing shots which I will cherish forever!

Only 10 more weeks (or less) until our baby girl arrives. I'm so excited I could burst!

29 Weeks.

Blair turned 29 Weeks yesterday! She is the size of a Butternut Squash!

I'm starting to think that I swallowed a basketball, but I know that isn't the case because basketballs don't wiggle and poke all day and night like this little baby does! I love it so much. At times it does hurt (she's a strong little booger), but I would rather feel those kicks than nothing. They are just the best reassurance that she is doing okay in there. (Even though sometimes I freak out and think she's moving too much, but the doctor told me it's fine.)

I absolutely hate maternity pants. The leggings (pictured here) and the jeans both have the high band on them. I picked that band because the low band felt like it was going to cut me in half if I bent over or sat down.....(and that was with jeans that were way too big in every other area of the body.) So I went with the high band cause it was comfy in the dressing room. Well, now not so much. Those bands make my belly itch like crazy. It drives me up the wall!!! I can already tell I'm going to miss summer weather and wearing dresses all the time! Even though Fall weather makes it more fun to put outfits together, I can't wait to see what I can come up with!

Also, our baby shower is right around the corner. I'm so excited! I know it's going to be beautiful and so lovely. Our mom's are doing a great job in getting everything prepared and I can't wait to see the final product and celebrate with friends and family! (I kinda feel like I'm having a wedding again haha!) Now if only I could find the perfect dress!

I got my glucose test results and antibody test results and they both came back normal! Yay! 

Jacob and I also attended a breastfeeding class over the weekend and I'm so glad I've made the decision to try to breastfeed. And my hospital is so supportive and wants you to succeed so I don't think I will have a problem with success. I will be doing a breastfeeding post soon because I'd love to hear tips and suggestions from fellow breast-feeders! But if you would like to leave a tip now, I would be more than happy to hear it!
