Double Shower Weekend!

This past weekend was a BLAST! Totally wore me out--I planned to post a blog immediately but have been recovering from all the fun! :) Saturday, was my very first baby shower, and as one friend said, it is probably the first of "many more showers to come." Check out this FANTASTIC cupcake tower in all the right colors!!! And I made the punch myself--isn't it lovely!?! (Well, I did have some help from Jennifer H. after all my cherry floats were drowned by the extra ice I added!)

Me and my True Blue who did such an amazing job with the decor for the shower! It was perfect!

And Rachel came up with some fun games to play for our entertainment!

Lucie got so many cute outfits at this shower! And some very nice blankets, and other things that make a new mommy world a better place. :o) And we had some time for prayer and blessings over our family which was a beautiful. Thank you so much to all who came and to all who gave and to all who prayed!

These are the girls who helped out with my second shower on Sunday! Another fantastic shower--such fun!

And Caren made all these LOVELY cupcakes by hand! They were AMAZING. We had lots of good eats and drinks at this shower!

I am so grateful to everyone for their hard work to put these showers together, and so thankful to everyone for their generosity. Lucie Joy is one blessed little baby! And I am her blessed mama. :o)
I want to give a shout out too, to my Aunt Nellie for coming out before a busy work week and representing the fam. Thank you for coming! It really meant alot to me!

And last but not least, here I am in all my 34 week glory! Almost there! Only 6 more weeks to go!

This week I've finally been able to satisfy some of my "nesting" instincts. I've been working on getting my room ready for little Lu and I'm so grateful to my mom and Mama May for helping me to get some things set up for the baby corner. :)

My mom took me to get these great drawers for storing Lucie's clothes and a shoe organizer to save space!

I literally had to clean out my closet probably 10x in order to finally make space for both me and Brian, and now a baby! You really have to live a minimalistic life when your whole world is crammed into one bedroom! :)

Mama May then took me and got this cute little cube organizer for Lu's things, and this little table which I'll use for a night stand--I love it!

Here's the bassinet Mom found on ebay. $25! :)

Now I'm all ready for baby showers this weekend! I'm so excited!!!

And last but NOT least, THANK YOU to Meme for making THIS possible!!!

ahhh... pedicure. :)

Here's To Lucie!!!


She is growing CROWDED in there! I'm getting all kinds of pokes and jabs and it's getting harder for me to move around!!! I've definitely slowed down, and feel all kinds of aches when I get out of bed in the morning!

Good news is: Only 9 more weeks to go!

Aren't these the cutest outfits? Mama May bought them for Lu on a shopping spree last month! :)

30 weeks

my midwife apt went very well today. :)
little lu is in good position with her head down
and her body slightly to the left which is good
b/c when she moves toward the center, she is more
likely to stay facing the correct way for labor. :)

i'm slightly anemic so she says i need to pump up my iron
and take chlorophyl and yellow dock...
i'll be saving some money to buy those from the herb shop!

otherwise, everything is a-ok. said my diet is very good
and everything looks very good.
i'll start seeing her every 2 weeks now
since i am 30 weeks already! :)

it hit me the other nite that i can't believe how drastically
my life is going to change in such a short time from now!!!
a little over 2 months and i'll have a real live baby that will be
mine for always.............. WEIRD. :)
it's a good thing i'm getting rather used to my life changing
drastically quite often these days.

i'm definitely excited. here goes nothing!

(i just took a few belly pics but we're housesitting right now
and i don't have the proper cords to put the pics on my computer!
i'll try to post them soon though!)
