  • Last week Couple Wife came to visit me and distract me from Roo’s birthday. It was a good day and we enjoyed lunch and then scouting spots for maternity photos for the 29th.
  • Last Wednesday Match had a few of his work buddies and their families over for a bbq. It’s not often that my reclusive hubby suggests we have friends over, so that made it even more special. It was fun watching all the boys play.

P1080101Shift Buddy wife just had a little boy (he’s just 7 weeks old) and Walking Buddy is 4 months pregnant with her 3rd boy. So this time next year we will have 6 boys between the 3 of us!!


I love how the little boys are playing in the gravel while they hang out with the big boys.


  • Saturday Miss PhD and I went to see The Host, FINALLY. I waited for her to get back from her NYC trip so we could watch it together. Piglet kicked up a storm during the movie. MissPhD spent half the movie with her hand on my belly, feeling all his crazy antics!
  • Sunday the sweet ladies of my church threw me a baby shower. It was so wonderful, and I was blown away by their kindness and generosity to our little boy. One of the ladies made me this adorable wreath:

  • Just look at all the stuff she included on it! The whole wreath was made out of diapers, but she added so many extras. It’s so cool! They also got me an incredible gift-my stroller!! A bunch of the congregation pitched in and went in on the gift for me. It is on order, so they wrapped a big empty box and stuck the picture on it. Here’s what the stroller looks like:

  • I feel so lucky and so blessed to be a part of such a sweet church family. There were also wonderful handmade blankets and sweet little clothes. I’m having trouble deciding what his take home outfit will be!
  • Yesterday I was a busy bee, putting away all of the gifts from the shower, washing baby clothing and bedding, and getting things organized for the nursery. I also went to my 34 week checkup and Piglet is doing great!
  • Next Monday Couple Wife is taking our maternity photos, and I promise as soon as she gives them to me I will post the nursery pictures. I’ve been bursting to do the nursery reveal!
  • Other than that, I’ve been going over my checklists and making sure I have things prepped and ready for Piglet’s arrival. I have my very last progesterone shot on Thursday, and then it’s just a matter of time before he makes his appearance. Hopefully full term and healthy, but otherwise I wouldn’t mind if he arrived in May! I’m so ready to meet him!

    your church ladies are by far the sweetest!! that diaper wreath… love it! so creative. and all functional!!

    Yep, little boys can have the most fun playing in the dirt.
    That stroller is great. Sounds like the countdown is on.


    Yea! So nice to have so many great people in your life. That stroller looks awesome.


    Getting close, so fun to start washing clothes and getting ready. It all becomes so real.

    The BBQ looks like everyone had so much fun! How cute the little boys were playing and hanging around the big boys. 🙂

    How AWESOME is that wreath?! So cool you’re part of such a wonderful congregation.

    I can’t wait to see the nursery reveal! And I’m looking forward to seeing your maternity pics, too – if you plan to post them, that is. 😉

    Was The Host good?!?!


    Oh, how I love the wreath! I’ve seen lots of diaper cakes at showers around here, but never a diaper wreath! Such a great idea!! Your stroller looks awesome. Won’t be long til you’re pushing your little Piglet around in it!!! Eeeee! 🙂


    I love everything about this post. The little boys hanging out with the big boys. The fact that you and your friends will soon have 6 boys among the three of you. The diaper wreath. The strong sense of community you feel from the members of your congregation. Your excitement. The fact that piglet is ALMOST here! Weeeeee!!!!


    I can’t stop giggling over the SATC quote at the top long enough to comment well! Giggle… The stroller looks awesome, the WEATHER there looks awesome (we got 14 inches of snow last week) and I can’t wait to see the maternity pics!

Your comments make my day!
