Week 38 - Nursery Pics

So I didn't have time this week to do my normal update, and let's be honest, we all know what is happening at this point - she is getting bigger and closer to making her grand entrance!  The doctor's appointments this week and last have been good and I'm pretty much progressing normal, if there is such a thing as normal with pregnancies. 

I'm definitely starting to feel like I'm ready - I have been saying this whole time that I have had an easy pregnancy and I have felt good, and while I still feel like I have been really lucky I finally feel like this is hard.  I am pretty tired at the end of the day, and getting really sore.  And my feet just stay nice and plump :)  But I know that it's not anything that I can't handle, and that she will be here when she is ready!

So now to the fun stuff, I thought I would share some pics of the nursery.  I think everything is pretty much ready for her to get here, although I'm sure there are things that  we don't even know we are missing.  But we will just figure that all out when the time comes!

Shower Time

I have had the rare luck of staying close to my group of high school friends even 11 years after our graduation.  All of our moms have made a little tradition out of throwing wedding showers for our group, and since I'm the first one to have a baby they decided to use their talents to host a baby shower for Miss Clara!  It was wonderful and I couldn't have felt more loved.  Here are some pics from the day.

Do I look like I'm ready?

Quick Check-in

So just in case anyone is checking this to see if there have been any updates, I wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about the blog and I haven't had the baby yet.  I think my work just figured out that I am about to not be here and they have been keeping me super busy, so I haven't had time to write my weekly entry.  But Clara and I are still going strong!
