This "pack 'n play" was more difficult to set up than I originally thought it would be, but I am glad I know how now and it will definitely come in handy!
This quilt was handmade by Annette (Brook's co-worker's soon-to-be mother-in-law). We have been looking forward for this gift since we bought the fabric months ago (see blog from 12/20/07) and it turned out better than we ever hoped.

All through my pregnancy I've been saying that it is going too fast and I never thought I would get to the point where I would just be ready for him to come, but I've finally gotten there. All of the sudden I can't really do anything. I can't sit for long periods of time, or lay down for very long. I can't get out of chairs or walk by myself (I feel very dumb gripping the wall to move around sometimes) and the bath tub is a whole new challenge. I'm just ready for him and who knows it could be more than a month before he comes.
In other news: We lifted some stress off ourselves by selling our Dana Carvey tickets for March 29th. We decided that if I am still pregnant it will be miserable because not only do you have to be in your seat and hour before the show starts, but it's a live taping so you have to stay in there the entire time. Plus if the baby is already born we won't be able to enjoy ourselves because that will be all we can think about. So we listed them on Craigslist and in about 20 minutes we already had someone who was willing to buy them.
Gosh, you never realize how much you have to say until you aren't writing as often!
We had birth class last night and it was my first time out of the house since Monday. Unfortunately the class was a bust because it was on breastfeeding and if you've done absolutely ANY research or picked up a book you already knew everything she said. We left at the break.
I have the last of the showers this weekend. My work shower is Saturday and my family shower is Sunday. These are the smaller showers so they shouldn't take too much out of me. We had a joint shower last Saturday for me and my friend Katie. It was so much fun but by the end we were both SO exhausted! The food was really good too, Karen made a gluten free chocolate cake AND gluten free pancakes!!! Carter and I have been so spoiled!
Carter and Alexis' first kiss!

Side note: Don't get me wrong, we love and respect the Pierce's too which is why we chose that name to begin with and why we aren't too keen to change it!

I've been feeling much better lately. We went to birth class last Thursday for about a half hour and I just couldn't take it anymore so we went home. It's a good thing we did because I woke up feeling alive and well again. My big complaint now is the swelling. I'm so used to having these tiny little girly ankles (which I never really liked) and now have seriously have man ankles. My ankles are practically non-existent... and people are noticing! My sister was commenting on my "cankles" and then one of the Young Women (who shall remain nameless as to not incriminate her) told me she stared at my ankles the entire time I was teaching in YW on Sunday! Needless to say they not only look horrible but they are definitely not comfortable.
All in all though I'd still say I've had a pretty good pregnancy and I feel much better than I did.
I know more has happened these past couple days so I will have to think and possibly add to this blog when I remember. Only 19 days of work left!!!! Hooray!
