Here's to Brother Obie.
Me and Freddy. By this point in the evening I had already discovered that I was wearing both earrings in one ear.
Morgan and Rachel. That's as much as I could get him to open his eyes.
My mother made me a beautiful baby quilt. I'll have to take another picture so that you can see it better. Did you notice my helpers? I never had to reach for a gift once - they were on top of it!
I ate quite a bit of pineapple this weekend. I even sent Freddy back through the food line at the wedding reception so that I could have more. Coincidence? I don't think so.
And here are a few of my random thoughts on pregnancy:
I think that maternity pants are a conspiracy. They aren't long enough to wear heels with, forcing women in to flats and out of heels before they are ready. I miss my heels! However, they are VERY comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, that I have already told my friends that they will have to stage an intervention to get me out of them after this baby girl gets here.
I have weird pregnancy "side-effects". I don't mind the weight gain. I can handle the growing belly. The aching back is kind of annoying, but I'm learning how to ease it with Tylenol, the Boppy Pregnancy pillow and massages. But there are a few things that I could definitely do without. The first one I debated about posting because it is slightly embarrassing, but oh well. My feet smell. Never did before really. But now certain shoes are banned from being taken off in the car if Freddy is with me. The good news is that I discovered I am not alone in this. A co-worker also suffers from smelly feet. The second is that my hair is staticy. YUCK! So annoying.

This little angel loves to me. I feel her kicking really low -always have. This means that her head is up and her feet are down. The doctor says that she has plenty of time to move before delivery (so that she isn't breech), but I kind of think that she will stay put. From what I have been told, I DO NOT want the doctor to move her. Apparently the pain that comes with that is intense to say the least and it doesn't come with an epidural.
Mystery solved! This perfectly precious gift was from my friend (and fellow blogger), Courtney, whom I have known since...was it 6th grade.
Here are 6 (in honor of the 6th grade) why Courtney is so cool (thought there are many, many more):
1 She's my friend. Just kidding! She is an eco-friendly mommy. I wish that I could use cloth diapers (no, not the traditional flat ones with safety pins) on my baby like she does on Nate. Unfortunately, I would eventually be forcing that on my baby's care giver when I go back to work and that isn't fair.
2. She's frugal without having to do without. She sees item. She likes item. She sees price tag. She hates price tag. She makes item. (For example, a blanket that covers the stroller and cloth diapers). I give her less than one year before she is selling on etsy.
3. She does things that other people just say they are going to do - like walk to the grocery store.
4. Not only does she blog, but she also built her blog. I can barely figure out how to upload pictures in order using blogspot and she built hers!
5. This girl does not give up. Whether it's running, working out or cooking - she must succeed.
6. She is a great mommy. She has a seperate blog devoted solely to Nate. She is a stay at home mom who loves her baby and the time she gets to spend with him, even it means paying for a new dining room table one coupon at a time.
Thanks, Courtney, for the beautiful gift set. Baby Girl Clark will love it!
I have a doctor's appointment this Thursday and I expect that we will schedule my last sonogram then. I registered with the hospital and signed us up for the birth class/hospital tour. The only thing is that the next class with open seats is just three weeks before my due date. It will be cutting it close, but hopefully it won't be too late.
I think that I will quit jogging (can't call it running anymore) at 32 weeks and stick to the prental yoga and pilates dvds - and wii fit, of course.
Oh, and I don't have gestational diabetes. Woo-hoo!
