35 Weeks

Last Sunday we had our baby shower. It was great to see all our friends and family together to celebrate Caleb. My friends Leslie and Kelly did a great job putting it all together for us and making amazing vegan food for everyone to enjoy. We heard many people say they never knew vegan food could be soo good. Mike wanted to be included so we invited both men and women to the shower which was fun. The boys got to watch football and drink beer while the ladies chatted. There was a onesie decorating table which showed off how artistically gifted many of our friends and family are. My sister made me a diaper boat with not only diapers but blankets and burp cloths that she made. (her blog has a how to if anyone is interested) I am so thankful to everyone that came and all the great gifts we received. I can't wait for Caleb to be here to meet everyone.

Thursday I had another Dr. appointment. Everything is still going smoothly. Caleb's heartbeat was good and all my stats (blood pressure, belly measurement...)  were good. I am still measuring a week to two weeks bigger but the Dr. said that was normal. I didn't have to have an exam this week because they no longer worry about me going into labor. I thought my cerclage was going to come out on Oct. 26th but my Dr. changed her mind and decided to do it Oct. 19th because I was going to be seeing her that day anyways. They take the stitch out in the office and she made it sound like it wouldn't be too bad. Since it looks like Mike will be at work my mom is going to come with me just in case.

Mike and I have been working on Caleb's room a lot since he got home. We installed a closet organizer, got the furniture put in and the crib put together. I washed and started putting away all the clothes and items we have received from people. I am slowly starting to organize his stuff so we know where things are. We still have some items we need to get but not too many.

My mom and sister are going to come over in the next week or so and help me make a crib skirt and window valance since they got the sewing genes and I didn't. I can do it but they are much better at it. They are also going to clean my house for me because my mom asked me last week what I wanted to my birthday and I said a good house cleaning before Caleb arrives. It kinda makes me laugh knowing that's what I wanted because I remember my mom saying that every year for her birthday, and as a kid thinking oh yeah whatever. But now I see she probably really meant it most years.

  1. Too funny about your birthday gift. I usually ask for a housekeeper for my birthday every year. It's funny how things change once we become moms. :-)
