Baby Shower!!

Wow, I can't believe it is almost time for Heather to come! Only 2 weeks and 5 days or less (I definitely hope that it is not more)! We had a little bit of a scare this past week, thinking that I may have toxemia. We got it checked out, and it turns out that I don't, I just have a lot of the minor symptoms (swelling, and severe headaches). We were very scared that we would have to be induced early, and are grateful that we don't. If we had, we would have had to miss the baby shower.

This weekend we had a baby shower put on by Mom Standage. It turned out wonderfully. Thank you Mom and Michele for doing all the hard work! We received a lot of cute clothes and necessary items from many of you. We really appreciate it! One of the things we were so worried about last week, was our lack of preparation. We feel a little more prepared now with the gifts, and also all the great advice! We still do not feel completely prepared, but I think it is more of a lack of knowledge of how it will be (besides busy and tiring), than anything else.

We can't wait for that special day when she comes! We will try to keep you all updated!

Steph, sorry I couldn't be there, but glad you got some useful stuff. Hang in there, it'll all be over soon. You're technically to term so you really could go any day. We'll see you in the hospital!

I wish I could have been there. I have some cute little baby dresses for you I'll leave them with Grandma. Hope all goes well on the big day. It is all worth it the minute she gets here. Sooooo exciting!

So I was reading comments on Grandma James' blog and noticed the Mr. Incredible picture. I would have to say I chuckled in awe at the resemblance. WOW! Lucky girl Steph!
