it's a joy, girl or boy

Today was my baby shower and it was wonderful, as I'd expected! I'm more than a little sad that it is over, to be honest. My mom heads out tomorrow and she won't be back until December 20th, hopefully early enough to be here for the baby's birth. While I had the baby shower to anticipate, there was something between today and the birth. Now that the shower has happened, and my living room is packed full of baby supplies, I'm almost prepared. Kind of. A little bit. As prepared as I guess I'll ever be.

Baby to be was showered with love and gifts, and my friends did an amazing job with food and games and decorations! One of my friends said that she couldn't believe I was having a baby next month, and I paused to correct her and then realized, oh my goodness, it IS next month! How did time fly like this? How can it already be November? How can a baby be coming in DECEMBER?

We're at week 33 now, and my belly is so big that this baby must be fully cooked. Maybe we all have the date wrong?

Nope, you'll get bigger. When you are so big you weigh the merits of wetting the bed versus getting up and shlepping to the bathroom.... THEN you're done.

I'm glad you enjoyed your shower.

You are going to feel like you couldn't get any bigger for a while, like you're going to burst. Then when the baby drops it should get a bit better again, at least for a while.

Estas TAN y TAN preciosa. I'm so glad you had a great time at your shower and that your Mami was there to enjoy it with you. How special! For the record, you don't look THAT big to me.

Se te quiere!

Hurrah! It was SO fun, I agree!

Lady says "Yaya!" Which, roughly translated means "HL, you are an adorable pregnant mommy-to-be and I'm happy you had a fun party!"

(and do you have the other pictures up? I am DYING to see the Littlest Pumpkin, Little Mister and the Petite Artiste all ligned up!)

Looks like we both got spoiled yesterday! I had my baby shower too! Hope you got lots of nice goodies for your future child!

Beautiful cake and beautiful Mama!

And you only THINK you can't get any bigger! But it is all wonderful, so enjoy it while it lasts.

That cake is beautiful and you are glowing! How can you be 33 weeks already? I think we both JUST found out we were pregnant!

So glad you enjoyed your baby shower! I'm planning two for friends, one in January and another in February. So many babies, so many showers! Have a great week.

It's totally not even remotely fair how fabulous you look at 33 weeks!

liz said...

You look so fabulous.

You could definitely get bigger. Seriously, you'll feel like Violet whatshername from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

chris said...

You are stunning! Honestly.

And yes, you will get bigger. Sorry to tell you ;-)

HalloweenLover, you look great! I'm a month behind you and I only wish I looked that put-together these days. Kudos and enjoy the last few weeks when you can hold the baby in your belly ... believe it or not, you will miss it after s/he arrives. Occasionally. :-)
