A visit from a bestie

My dear friend Cameron visited us last weekend from New Zealand! It was so great to have girl time with her, catch up on life and of course put some womanly touches on the nursery!

Cameron joined us in celebrating St. Patrick's Day at our friends annual party. As you may remember, St. Patrick's Day is a special day for Geoff and I because we met on this day 5 years ago! What a love.

(Side note: These pictures were taken the same day, but either baby had a growth spurt between the afternoon and the evening OR it's the way the tops fit... not sure which one.)

34 weeks!

Last Sunday marked 34 weeks growth for baby girl. Is it totally crazy that I'm PROUD of my unborn child? Shows what's to come, I guess!

Things continue to go great and I'm still feeling really good. My drop in energy (since about 30 weeks or so) continues to haunt me but it's actually quite nice to be taking naps again (like I did at the beginning). Even a 20 minute snooze seems to help a lot. Baby's movements are definitely changing - I can tell that she's starting to get a little tight in there and instead of jabbing movements it's more like stretching or pushing. It is hard to explain... but when she's moving around I get this feeling she's also thinking "give me some room in here!" She's also hiccuping more now. I've never heard anyone complain about the baby hiccups, so maybe I'm the first, but they drive me insane! Could be because she's so low but I like to explain it to Geoff as a heartbeat in my crotch. Odd. And annoying. But still cute, because everything she does is cute. :-)

We're moving along with the nursery and I am loving it. My parents came last weekend for my shower here (pics and post to come soon!) and we spent lots of time putting things together and organizing - it's getting exciting!!

Here's a pic for you all to enjoy. Keep in mind this photo shoot took a good 20 minutes because Geoff and I don't agree on flattering angles. This one will have to do....

The mamas to be! So excited that baby girl will have a niece or nephew only 2 months younger than her!

Yummy breakfast with a great friend, Joey D

This was our last trip to Seattle with just the two of us! So exciting to think about all the changes that are about to take place!

We had a great time and were really happy to be able to spend lots of family time, including time with Porter man. He is such an amazing little man.... so much spunk and wise beyond his 22 months if you ask me!

Seattle Baby Shower

A sweet sweater that my mom made for baby!

Last weekend Geoff and I had a short trip to Seattle to spend time with some family and friends and celebrate baby girl's arrival in April!

As you can see, no detail was left behind! My sister-in-law, BF Stacey and mother all went above and beyond and hosted a wonderful shower for me and baby girl. It was SO great to catch up with some very special ladies and celebrate this little one that will be joining us soon!
