The party was great. All of my neighbors were here but 2 and they sent gifts, which I thought was extremely nice. My friend Sasha was here with her little girl, London, as well. Then to what to my wondering eyes should appear...Jake!! Who, some of you may not know is getting prepared to be a Daddy! (We're just a little excited!) So, all in all it was a great day and I felt really lucky to have such wonderful friends who wanted to share in welcoming the baby to the neighborhood.
This past weekend was pretty hectic as well. We had a Christmas party at the Major and Patty's house and then on Sunday we took Clay to Chuck E Cheese for his birthday. He had a great time. Our neighbors, the Wrights came and brought their 2 kids, Connor and Cayris. Conner and Clay are in the same kindergarten class. So, after a couple of hours, the kids were still going strong, but we parents were about to croak.
As for doctor's visits, up until yesterday, they really hadn't been telling me anything. All they were doing was taking my weight, blood pressure and making me pee in a cup. I could have done that at home! I know I'm fat, my blood pressure is fine and I can get pee on my fingers here as well as anywhere else. (You ladies who have been through trying to pee into what you can't see know exactly what I'm talking about so quit with the eeewwws.) Anywho, when I went yesterday they finally checked me and while I'm not dilating yet, everything is softening up. So, they're pretty sure that if I haven't gone on my own by the 26th, they'll be able to induce with no problems.
Well, now that I've written my life story, here are some pics from the shower. Hopefully soon the beached whale stage of my life will be over!

Nick, Nikki, and Jake really got a kick out of my TV dinner tray!

So, for the rest of the day I'm sure I was known as the clumsy pregnant girl. The good thing was that AFTER I made a jackass out of myself, the extension cord owners taped it down to the sidewalk.
The good news is that both Ben and I made it just fine. The only thing really hurt was, of course, my pride.

Well, I hope everyone enjoys the pictures and if you have any ideas, let me know. The room still looks a little naked. Thanks!

I am also including pics of the rest of us so you can all see that we are all doing well. And yes, I am a pregnant chick wearing a Wild Turkey sweatshirt. I was chilly. Sue me.

We've been working on the nursery. We are going to pick up the furniture this weekend, so I'm really excited about that. I'll need to stain the crib next week, so I hope to have some nursery pictures next weekend.
Well, I've got two boys that are in their room being a little too quiet...

I mean come on...62 lbs?
I'm done ranting now.
Well, better go. The longer I sit the more he moves and it kind of makes me a little sea-sick. I hope this update makes my sister happy as I'm trying to do better with my blogging!
