35 Weeks!!

35 Weeks!

I'm excited to be 35 weeks!  We are going to have a great week celebrating Thanksgiving with my parents.  They have been coming to our house for Thanksgiving since we lived in Lake Forest-I think this is our 5th Thanksgiving that we've done at our house!

Lex is making the turkey, as usual.  He does an amazing 2-hour turkey that is so yummy!  He even brines it the night before.  We all love it every year!  I make the sides with the help of my parents and Lex.

We are continuing to work on the nursery.  We've got the furniture all set up and I'm starting to organize all the baby stuff we have!  We have a lot of clothes!  I need to get to work on washing them all and then organizing them by size so they will be ready when baby arrives!
We also still need to get a crib mattress and more bedding for the crib, as well as the glider and ottoman that I want!  So I'm doing more research and I think I have it all worked out as to where I'll be getting everything.  I'll probably start ordering things over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Here are some photos of the room so far-it's not done, but its definitely getting close and I'm feeling good about it.  It's actually looking like a baby's room!

The Nursery

The crib and changing table is along the right wall

The stroller and car seat are in the room right now so the cats don't get to them!

Dresser drawers are on the left hand wall of the room

I'm still working on Thank You notes for all the wonderful gifts we have received from family and friends!  So if you haven't received one yet, it's coming!!

Until next week!

34 Weeks!

34 Weeks!

Yeah!  I'm 34 Weeks!  I think I look huge in this photo!  I'm wearing a different tank top, so that makes it look a little different, but still!  I don't know where it's all going to go for the next 6 weeks!

I missed last week's photo because we've been so busy, so it's been awhile since I've posted.  I can't believe I missed last week's photo, though.  I'd been so good about making sure I didn't miss any weeks at all.  Oh well, I guess overall, I've done well.

It's been a crazy 2 weeks!  We've been working on refinancing our house, and it looks like there might be good news!  Woohoo!  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Our baby furniture arrived!  We've now cleaned and de-cluttered enough to be able to put it together.  We have our wonderful friends, MeiLin and Will Tsai, and their kids, Abigail and Cameron, who are coming over tomorrow night.  Lex and Will are going to put together the furniture.  We're so lucky to have their help!

We had our baby shower at South Bay MINI on Nov 14th.  It was so much fun!  We really enjoyed hanging out with all our friends and we were humbled by their love, support, and generosity!  Here are some photos from the day.  You can also see lots more photos here!

Everyone talking at the shower-we hope everyone had fun!

Amanda made us a great diaper cake!

Jennifer made these amazing cupcakes for us!  Aren't they cute?

Our friends gave us so many cute little girl outfits, as well as lots of useful things that we needed!  Thanks everyone!

Ok, until next week!

32 Weeks!

32 Weeks!

I'm 32 Weeks!  We're getting closer!  I look like I've really popped in this photo, don't I?

We had a fun weekend.  I dressed as a Magic 8 Ball for my halloween costume, which was fun and I got a lot of comments on what a cute outfit it was!  

Here is another photo of me in my costume!  We spent the afternoon and evening at the track at Irwindale and saw some races, did a parade lap, and handed out out candy to all the kids there!  It was fun and I was glad to have an occasion to wear the costume my friend at work gave me!

On Monday we take a tour of Saddleback Hospital, so I'll be sure to update you on that next week!

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
