The countdown is on...

It is official...only 27 days until Bellito's big arrival...24 days left of work... and this is if we make it all the way to there. How am I feeling???? Actually, great!

I am amazed at how different everything is this time around. My energy level, ability to move, low riding belly are all SO completely different from Molly! I have been so swamped at work that I have completely lost count of the days...until my showers today...that is right showers as in two. The first was the actual scrubbing of my hair this morning when I realized that we had reached the less than a month mark! This is a little bit of what I looked like...

"I think my look was a little bit more of a shock but it was the best that I could find..."

My second shower was a baby shower at Our Children's House. It was amazing! I work with such incredible people who I just love so much! It is so nice to really care about the people that you work with!


We had great food...

The yummiest Casa Linda Cake!!! The coolest people... And some amazing gifts!


Now Bellito has clothes to wear...

Blankets to snuggle in...

Lots of bouncing action to come for those kicking little legs and much more....

I can't believe that there is no picture of the amazing hostesses!!! Tracey, Emily, Sarah, Taylor, Patricia and Monique...you are all such incredible people! Thank you for planning such a fantastic celebration!!!

Now that we have all this great gear...we are feeling a little bit more prepared...especially since we have decided to stay at our home through the baby's birth (I almost moved us last weekend but that is a post all to itself...) I can wait to move until March.

Don't we just look like more relaxed parents?

Even Molly is almost ready... she has been practicing pushing her baby in the stroller outside... she's ready for some walking with the new baby!


So we are definitely in the home stretch... as soon as my doctor's office quits cancelling my appointments I will be able to provide more of the exciting updates regarding our big day!

You look so pretty in the pics! You and Kelly look great and Molly is precious, as always. I do have to talk to you about her housewife toys, though. I'm going to have to get some good manly toys to balance them out. Boo! on toy manufactures perpetuating outdated gender roles.

We're so excited for y'all! I'm sad I couldn't stay for the entire shower, but I'm glad you had a great time:)
