Cutest Baby Ever

Ted's mom sent me the cutest picture of Ted as a baby!

I can only hope that our baby is as cute and happy as Ted was!!!!

The baby room

After the shower, I spent a lot of time in the baby room. It has made me more excited than ever to meet our little girl. I feel so blessed with all the gifts. I can't imagine anything else that I would need except our little girl at this point. We are stocked with all the necessities and more!! I took some new pictures of the baby room. Notice the most special part of all: the cherry blossom tree painted by Fay. :)

The pictures are not the best. I took them with Ted's iPhone so I will have to take better ones soon!

Baby Shower

This weekend was the baby shower and it could not have been more fun. All of my favorite people, excellent food, pool time, amazing gifts, and loads of good times. I could not have asked for a better day. Lauren was an awesome host and Ted made sure everything went smooth. And of course Dewey was the master chef! Amazing food!!

Here are some pics from the event.

my crew from safeway :)
So many generous wonderful cute and amazing gifts!!
Food was incredible!

My mother in law is the greatest!!

And of course, where would I be without Lauren?

33 weeks

We went to a Sunset party at Treasure Island on Sunday to hang out with Lauren and some other friends. Had to share this picture. Ted and I have asked Lauren to be our assistant coach for the birth. Could I really find any better?

Leaving Work

I can't get down the hallway these days without someone stopping me and asking me if I am headed for delivery. ;)

It is also bittersweet as I have started to create my work family here at Novartis. I will definitely be sad to leave as it has been such a positive work environment and I will be able to complete everything I have started since I have been here. Everyone has been so nice and supportive. I could not have asked for a better environment for this pregnancy!!

My last day is July 17th so I still have time to waddle the hallways.

My Birthday

I can't believe how long it has been since I last wrote. So much has happened. A couple trips to LA to see Dad and marry Meghan and Gabe. A visit from Amanda and Drew. Lots of work on the baby room. Clothes from Debbie and Miranda. So much.

My birthday was yesterday and I just couldn't get too excited thinking of the real day of birth that is just around the corner. I am getting more and more ready for it as I get more and more uncomfortable. Sleeping is pretty difficult and by the end of the day, I absolutely have to get off my feet. But other than that, I actually feel pretty good. I am still doing 30 min on the elliptical about 5 times a week and that is my saving grace.

We are so lucky to have received so much from my cousins Debbie and Miranda. It is incredible. So many clothes and supplies I was overwhelmed. The nursery is pretty much complete just missing the most important part. ;)

We are still searching for the right name. Ted thinks it will just come to him one day. I just can't find it in any book. Hopefully we can get one before the hospital.

I will take pictures of the nursery this weekend and some pics of my belly. :)

Check out my favorite birthday card from my sweet little nephew Truman!
