32 weeks (8 months) today!!! I have lots of updates!!! I had my first baby shower last Sunday giving by Marlin's Mom, Aunt, and Sister-in-law. It was surely a girlie affair with pink and green decoration and lots of fun games. Very grateful and look forward to the next shower which is next week. All my girls from the East Coast are coming in town...can't wait! It's truly a celebration for this special little girl we have yet to meet. Feeling very blessed!
Here's a few photos from the shower...
Besides the baby shower fun, the husband and I have been making great progress on Project Nursery. The crib was delivered and Marlin spray painted it gold. Yes...gold! All we need to do is put it together and we are done with that. I also found the bedding that I want at a sample sale over the weekend. So, that is done too!!! I finally started on my wall art project. I got some paper letters to spell the popular french saying "joie de vivre" (joy of life) from Land & Nod to decorate using paint, glitter, recycled paper flowers, and yarn. I have 4 more letters to go and I'll be done with that too. Check out the photos below, turned out really beautiful. What I like about this crib is it's really safe, affordable, and converts to a toddler bed or a day bed. Score for us!

Tonight we have our last birthing class. We have truly enjoyed this class and look forward to the birth day. We had a tour of the hospital and it looks like we will be in great hands. No worries there! Still a bit anxious about going into labor, but preparing myself mentally each day to not be fearful. I'm feeling good, but had two nosebleeds yesterday and the aches and pains took me for a spin. Hoping today will be better! Looking forward to seeing my Dr. today! I always get so excited to go to hear the baby's heartbeat and ask a lot of questions. :)
Cravings...pretty much the same. Really enjoying spoonfuls of frozen Cool Whip. Ohhhh gosh, it's so tasty. You have to try it! Still not eating meat. If I do, it's very little. I do enjoy baked salmon which I cooked Sunday night with cole slaw and baked potato. Yummy yummy! This week, I'm going to try to make navy bean soup without the ham. I had a really good one here and wanted some ever since. Post the recipe after I make it!
Think that is it for this week or I'm drawing a blank. :)
more Tuesday Baby Updates next week or the following...

I came across this hilarious video on Tracee Ellis Ross' new site. As I was watching, I realized how I too have a healthy obsession with The Bowl! I was just talking to my mom over the weekend about how I prefer eating out of a bowl than on a plate. It's just more exciting to me, plus you eat less (well, that won't apply if you eat out of a huge bowl). You see a plate is just so flat. You can't grip or snuggle with a plate, it has to be a bowl. I could really replace all my plates with bowls, but I kinda need them when I have folks over...right? Also, the husband loves a bowl too. So, no argument there! Just thought I'd share my amusement with you.
Here's some cuties I found...
Don't you just love a bowl?

Spring is here and I'm 30 weeks today!!!! Woohoo...I'm in my thirties!!! Ten more weeks to go! So, last week we went to our first birthing class at Cedars. We were late, but they were pretty easy on us. I did interrupt the class by apologizing, and at the end of class she made an announcement that there is no need to apologize, just come in and join us...Ok, we got it! We'll be on-time tonight! :) The class is very intimate, only 5 couples and lots of great information...we even have homework! We met a sweet couple that will deliver around the same time as us and guess what? We have the same doctor! Yep! I immediately got this feeling that we will go into labor at the same time. Hmmm...that would be very interesting.
Nursery update...over the weekend we made some major progress in the nursery. Moved some furniture around and purged our closets. More purging to do, but glad we got rolling. My mom and I also tackled a little reupholstering project. Found some beautiful fabric at Michael Levine downtown for my gently used glider so graciously given to me by one of my mom 's besties. Should get that covered this week. I can't wait to share when all is complete. Exciting stuff happening over here!! :)
Cravings are pretty much the same, but I picked up a couple more...Mango frozen yogurt from Yogurtland. Have you had it? My taste buds are jumping just thinking about it. I'm also trying something new that I had at my friends baby shower over the weekend...honey yogurt with granola and berries like a yogurt parfait. So yummy! I see a theme here with yogurt, baby must need more protein. Also, yesterday I noticed my appetite increased a lot. I ate all day yesterday! Here comes that weight I've been wondering about. Uhh ohh!!!
In the never ending "what do I wear, and still be fashion-forward" saga, I finally found some maternity pants at Target for work (pretty cute) and love these cuties from H&M. Got them in 3 colors. I don't have to buy anymore pants for the rest of my pregnancy. Just perfect!
I think that's it for this week!
