35 weeks

Some highlights from this week... 

- We had our second baby shower and we really were showered with generous and lovely gifts! The shower was at the Hubs' church, ladies were at our shower who knew hubs when he was a baby. I am still amazed at at all of the ladies that came to the shower and loved on us and our little baby boy. We have been spoiled in love and have plenty to welcome Gooseberry home with. 

- After the shower we were able to go and get a crib for Gooseberry! I am so excited!! The same afternoon we got the crib Hubs put it together, he is so talented and amazing. Even though there were a dozen other things that he wanted to go that afternoon he put the crib together because he knew it was so important to me. 

- Because the crib was purchased and put together and because we received the bedding we asked for we were able to put everything together. The nursery is pretty much complete! There are a few things that I still need to get/am waiting to come in the mail, but if you go upstairs and look at the room, it looks pretty finished (at least I think so :). Having the nursery put together makes me so excited and even more anxious for little Gooseberry (who is now the size of a coconut!) to make his appearance.  

- The diaper bag I ordered finally came in the mail and I have stuff packed for Baby. I'm sure if there is something I don't have the hospital will have it, and if they don't we can always have some one go to the house and get it for us. 

- Sleep has not been my friend. I am so tired, but then I can't sleep as well as I would like to. And pretty much the only thing I feel like doing is laying on the couch and falling asleep... I feel pretty tired these days. 

- I am ready for Gooseberry to get here! It is getting more and more difficult for me to concentrate at school and I am finding that I really just don't care about anything at work. I just want to be at home getting ready for little mister's arrival. I feel like there is a lot more I need to do before he gets here and I just want to be at home so I can be sure it gets done. 

- I went to the doctor this week and he said everything looked and sounded good. Four more weeks!!

-Anyhow, I will leave it at that. I have a few other things in mind that I want to share this week, hopefully I get my tired self off the couch for long enough in the evenings so I can make that a reality. 

Happy Tuesday y'all :)

Sounds as though little Yuri is getting big and then shrinking and getting big and then shrinking again. Where I live durian are bigger than coconuts (at least the good ones).

Happy for you that you have been showered with love and all of the family and friends are anxious to meet and greet the little guy. Wish I could be there.

Our prayers are with you.
