Baby Shower #2 and Ivory 50th Wedding Anniversary

On Saturday Jordan went on a quad ride with his dad and brother while I got the oil changed in the car and went to my second baby shower. My second baby shower was held at my church, and was put together by Trissa and Denise. We had a lot of fun playing games, eating a yummy lunch, and opening presents. I got a lot of things that I need for baby, which was very helpful :)

After that Jordan and I headed down to Fountain Green for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. We got there just in time to see them dance to their wedding song, cut the cake, and for us all to dance to the last song of the night. We had visiting with my family, and watching the fun video of their life together.

On Sunday we had breakfast with my parents in Nephi before heading back to Logan. Then, on the way home we stopped at IKEA to pick up some shelves and stuff for the nursery. We then stopped in at Babies'r'Us to pick up a few other things for the baby.

Pregnancy Update

Over the past 5 weeks Jordan and I have been attending a Child Birth Education series at the Logan Regional hospital. We have taken a breastfeeding class, infant safety, parenting, and a 6 week Lamaze class. We have been learning a lot from these classes, and I really think they are going to be an asset to us in the long run.
Last week in Lamaze we learned about medications and car seat safety. Jordan even got to wear the empathy belly. He had to wear it for about an hour and was so relieved to be able to take it off at the end. He was shocked at how uncomfortable it was and could hardly believe that that's how I've been feeling for most of my pregnancy. Since then he's been a lot more willing to rub my feet and back whenever I ask, which has been wonderful.

Our Matching Baby Bumps :)

Baby's now the size of a honeydew!
Baby can recognize and react to simple songs...time to start practicing your lullabies! In fact, baby will recognize frequently sung tunes after birth and probably find them soothing. Less cute news: She now urinates about one pint per day. Get the diapers ready!

I can't believe that I am already 34 weeks and 4 day pregnant, it definitely doesn't seem like it's been that long! It's exciting to know that I am in the 8th month of pregnancy and that we only have about 38 days until we get to meet our darling daughter.

We have most of the nursery set up, we just need to do a little more decorating :) We also have all of the accessories that we are going to need for her arrival. I do have another baby shower this saturday so hopefully I'll get a few more cute little outfits to put her in when she gets here. I am also very excited to announce that we have picked out her coming home outfit and it is adorable (now all I've got to do it make her matching hair bow and headband and she'll be all set to come home from the hospital.)

Labor Day/Baby Shower #1

For Labor Day weekend Jordan and I went down to Fountain Green. We left friday afternoon and came home sunday evening. While there my mom through me a baby shower! We had so much fun playing games, opening presents, eating yummy food, and just chatting :) I got so much cute stuff for baby, and it all just made me more excited for her to arrive.
