..week 29..

sweet baby girl...
i say i'm like a walking beach ball when i wear this shirt. your daddy & i started our bradley birthing class this week. daddy was pretty nervous about going, but afterward said he was glad he did. we are both learning lots about what's going on and what will happen in the labor and birth. daddy is my 'birth coach'. he is an amazing coach. he's always so supportive & encouraging. i'm so blessed to have him as my husband & i know you will be so blessed to have him as your daddy. [i just hope he can keep up with the homework - relaxation massages every night!]

..week 28..

sweet baby girl...
time is really starting to fly by. i had my monthly OB appointment this week and now i will start going every other week. yikes! i feel like we still have so much to do to get ready for you. we finally did a registry. it was a bit overwhelming. we walked around for quite a few minutes before we even scanned anything and i kind of wanted to cry because sometimes i just feel so unfit. but your daddy and i are so excited to have you and i know everything will be just fine when you are here. we also have lots of family close by to help out and i am so thankful for that and i know they just can't wait to meet you either.

whoa! that's a big belly.

i had to laugh at my reflection in the hand dryer at mcdonald's.

i was at mom & dad's. my belly was itching like crazy. [yes, i'm still drinking lemon juice. no, my wonder soap has STILL not arrived. the good news - the rash has not spread.] i grabbed some lotion out of mom's purse and lifted up my shirt to lotion up. mr. mully [aka malacai] was sitting in his highchair and apparently this was quite a spectacle. after staring for a minute he said, "whoa, that's a big belly." i laugh every time i think about it.
