It's getting close!

Had my 36 week check up today and they usually don't do an internal exam, but did for me anyway and not much is happening yet....I figured that much. Head is low, though, and after next week I will be ready anytime....so think thoughts of labor! My guess is the second week of Nov sometime, but who knows!

In the mean time, we had Mandi's baby shower (my sister in law), and it was really fun. I have always wanted to make one of those decorative diaper cakes, so I tried it and it think it turned out pretty good. I may have some craftiness in me after all...not too much though! We took a fun belly pic...that will be a good one to look back on later!

34 weeks down, 6 (or hopefully less) to go!

In another week we will hit the 8 month mark, and have one month to go. These pictures make me feel VERY big! I don't notice it as much when I see myself in the mirror or just look down, but when I see the pictures it looks HUGE! I had to ask Ike if I really am that big....and he says YES you ARE, which is funny because my weight gain hasn't improved as much as you would think for the size of my belly! Maybe that means this big boy is slowing down a little to help his momma out! (Wishful thinking) So, here are the pictures of my progression over that last 4 weeks!

Here's the last one I posted at 30 weeks.

And here's 34 weeks. I really don't know if I can get much bigger. The tight shirts don't help, either, but what else to I have...they are all getting tight! I only have a few that fit at this point!

Another angle...this one makes me look a little smaller....it just jets out pretty far in front! I think I am almost past basketball size! Yikes!

This one is 4 years ago when I was 8 months with Dane....BIG DIFFERENCE, I know! It's a baggier shirt than the white one I'm wearing this time, but I just tried it on again and it is definitely tighter than it looks in this old pic. I took this about 4 weeks before I had Dane I think because it is the last one I have besides pics in the hospital!

A bitter-sweet weekend!

Last weekend we went back to Vegas for the first time since moving for a funeral for Ike's Uncle Paul. He died of a heart attack at work and it is very sad because he is only in his 50s. The funeral was beautiful and it was great to see family and friends and support Aunt Annie and her kids. Even thought there were sad parts to the weekend, we also had a lot of fun, which is what Paul would have wanted. Ike's family is a lot like my family and when they get all together it gets exciting! Some of the great grandkids even performed some dances to some kids bop music...we were all laughing because it was all girls and then Duke (Dane's cousin that lives in Vegas). Reminded me of my sisters and cousin, Amy, singing and dancing with Rusty when we were little! Anyway, it was the first time in a while that all Ike's siblings were together with their families, too! Don't know when that will happen again! Here are a few pics.
