What a great day!

Exactly 10 years ago I met the man of my dreams....and he's held the key to my heart ever since. It's crazy to think that it's been 10 years since Talton and I met, but you know what they say - time flies when you're having fun. If someone would've asked me that day where I would be 10 years from then, I would've said "married, have a child, and be really happy with my life". Well we're right on track with that!!!

Talton and I went to the doctor today for a regular check-up and everything is going great. We'll go back now every 2 weeks. That means we're getting closer to Connar making his big appearance. I'm 29 weeks 1 day pregnant today, so less than 11 weeks to go until his due date. SO EXCITING!!!!!!!

cake & gifts & a stroller, oh my!

So Connar's first baby shower was this past weekend. My teaching team at school threw it for us, and it was absolutely fantastic! Connar got so many goodies that I had so much fun looking at as I opened them and then again at home when I was putting them away. Looking at the picture below it might look like he got everything he needs, but we actually still have quite a bit of essential things to get. On the invitation, the hostesses asked the guests to bring a book instead of a card...right up a teacher's alley! They look perfect on his shelf with plenty of room to add more. I'm so excited about the second shower for family and friends that is in September!!! When we got home from the shower, Talton put together Connar's combination stroller/car seat and his super cute car walker. What a great daddy!

Look how tiny the socks are! Talton and I are so unbelievably excited to have Connar here to put them on his sweet little feet! I sure do love this baby so much it hurts!!! By the way, I'm 28 weeks pregnant tomorrow......yes, that means only 12 weeks to go until his due date. Amazing how time flies when you're having fun. :)

I heart Talton!

He makes me laugh every day, takes care of me, comforts me when as my hormones are on this roller coaster, and he loves me with every fiber of his being. I'm quite the lucky girl to be loved by such an amazing man. I love you Talton, and I can't wait to become Mommy and Daddy side by side.

Who'd have thunk it?....

....Connar likes music...don't know where he might get that from. I think he might already have pretty good rhythm too. :) Talton and I went to the Green Day concert this weekend (which was amazing!), and in the middle of the show I felt Connar kick me. He had been pretty calm all day, so it was funny that he kicked when the music was going.

So not only did this weekend consist of Connar's first concert, Talton and I also went to our first childbirth class. As we were walking into the hospital, we were joking that wouldn't it be funny if they had us do the breathing exercises...hee hee hoo...hee hee hoo. Just as the class was ending and we thought this might not be the case, the time had come. It wasn't long before we were both hee hee hooing on the floor. So funny and so hard to keep a straight face when you have 20+ adults laying on the floor hee hee hooing all at the same time. Next week we'll cover epidurals (among many other things)...Do you think they give an epidural pill to get you started in the parking lot????

Today begins my 26th week of pregnancy. Wow. It's fun to think that he'll be here in 3 months. He is still kicking me regularly (which I love!) and is growing steadily (see picture below for proof that he's growing :) ).

I registered at Babies R Us last about an overwhelming place. I am happy that that's done now, because that was quite the task. After it was said and done though, it was fun to see all the items that will soon take over our house. My wonderful 4th grade team at school is throwing me a school baby shower in a few weeks, and I'm so excited I can hardly wait for the day to arrive. The invitations were so cute! We're so lucky to have such sweet friends who want to shower Connar with love.

We're still working on his room, which is so stinkin' cute if I say so myself! Talton hung his curtains this weekend and they look fantastic -- great job Daddy (as usual)! I heard this from a friend who is pregnant and it's so true: The daddy is in charge of building the room and the furniture and the mommy is in charge of building the baby. :) Connar's already loved so very much!
