That's right!! In about 5 weeks (I'm thinking less!!) we will add a new member to our family/group of friends. I CAN NOT believe it! I kinda feel like it was yesterday that I found out I was pregnant and here I am staring down the tube at delivery day! I'm really thinking that he will be early. I don't want him to come early because I still have a lot of school work to get done (as I sit here blogging), but I don't really think Zach cares about that!
The doctors appointments have been going well. Last blog I wrote that we would get an estimated fetal weight on him, which we did. So about 3 weeks ago...ish...he weighed 3lbs 13 oz. I think he's much bigger now!! I go again this Monday, so we'll see what she says. I'm kinda hoping that she will check me to see where things are. How much time I have left. I like to know things! I'm a planner!
School is going pretty well. I had all A's and B's at midterm time, plus and incomplete (which I'm still waiting for a response on that reason!). I've started observing in the classroom and still have a lot of hours to do. It's hard to get them all finished when you don't get your classroom assignment until October and you have until November to complete them!! If I didn't have any other classes or work, I could probably get it done! Doug's doing pretty well in all of his classes too. He's not really liking the philosophy class, but I know he can get through it.
My family threw me a baby shower this past weekend (10/10/09) and it was amazing!! I had such a wonderful time!! All of my friends were able to come as well has family that live long distances. My mom's 2 sisters came with their little girls, my grandparents came from SC, my cousin Susan from NJ, my aunt Mary came from the Eastern Shore (Hi Aunt Mary!), my cousins from N. VA, Lauren and Beth, plus numerous other wonderful people. This little boy got TONS of gifts!! He's so spoiled and he's not even here yet! I'm still working on thank you notes. I thought 2 packs of them would have been enough, but I had to go out and buy some more! Here are some pictures from the shower.
Well that's it for now I suppose. I'll try to write again before the little man gets here! If not, the next will be all about his arrival plus some pictures!!
