Baby Updates

I have had several showers the past few months and I have gotten so many amazing gifts! My ward/neighborhood had a shower a while ago and my mom and sister were able to come, which was really nice.


Natalie, Kayleen and Michelle were in the Primary Presidency with me and they did the shower for me. There was tons of yummy food and it was really fun to visit with everyone.


The presents were awesome too!


Last week, my dearest friends, Shelley and Bre did a shower for me. My sister also helped a lot and my mom brought some food too! These gals mean so much to me and have been the best friends a girl could ever ask for. I am honestly so blessed and grateful for their friendship. It’s also nice to have their mommy knowledge and I’m sure I will be taking even more advantage after the babe gets here!


Steph made these adorable favors with cheddar popcorn.


They put up these circles and people wrote some advice and tips for me to read.


We had a bunch of delicious soups, bread and of course, treats!


Lots of people came and I got so many fun gifts! I just love seeing people that I don’t get to see a lot. There were people from my mom’s ward, girlfriends, their moms, family friends etc. It was awesome.


Kaley (left) just had Reese a month ago, Kelsie (middle) is due at the end of January and Kristin (right) is due in March! We also have another friend due in February and we all went to high school together!


Kinda blurry but I love having my mom and sis come to my showers and share the fun of opening gifts and looking at all the fun baby stuff! These two are chomping at the bit for this little guy to come and I can’t wait either! They are going to be an awesome Grandma and Aunt!


Nursery update: the room is about 95% finished! I will probably do a full nursery post soon but I just need to finish up some final things! I made some artwork and got it up and I LOVE it!


I painted the frames the same dark gray as the dresser.


I have gotten all his little clothes put away and everything organized. He has SO MANY tiny baby clothes! I haven’t even pulled out anything over 6 months and the drawers and closet are full! So excited for him to wear all the cute stuff!


And finally a belly picture since I haven’t done one in about 2 months! This is almost 37 weeks. I don’t feel like my belly is that huge but looking at this picture reminds me that it is! I love it though and I have been feeling really great for the most part. I sleep all night without any problems and I still have tons of energy and don’t want to sit very much. I definitely need to take more breaks and things are getting harder to do (bending over is a nightmare!) but so far so good! I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise and I feel like it has really helped me feel so good during my pregnancy. Hopefully it continues to go well and I can just keep busy until he decides he’s ready to make his appearance!
