Baby Shower

This Blog will be very boring unless your name is Lou Ann, Jenna, Brek, Heather or someone who likes to look at baby clothes.

Last week my Aunts threw me a baby shower up in Ogden.

This is my cousin Amy and me. Her mom made this blanket and another one too! So crafty.

Can't quite seem to fit on my seat.

Here are my aunts Kathy and Sherly. I'm a horrible person and didn't tell anyone I was taking their picture.

Looks like Grandma caught on, but not Ann.

Here is Ruthann

Here is little Carla and not so little me.

Lizzy and Carla.
And here are some of the things he got...

This is not from the shower. I have a problem in that when I have a birthday coming up or it's Christmas, I'll go out and buy myself stuff. Well before the shower I hit up the GAP and found some of these goods. Notice the little bathing suit. That will be the first thing we try on!
Here is what some of the stuff in his crib is looking like.
Next blog I'll be taking my last tummy shots because then I'll be 9 months and READY TO GO!

Fun Things!

For Valentine's Day Reuben and I went to Color Me Mine and made some fun stuff. I made a "You are Special" plate which doesn't look at all like the one I grew up with but I LOVE yellow so it works. When it's someone's Birthday or something special happens then they get to eat off this plate.
Reuben made a toothbrush holder. First we have our initials, followed by the killer cavity and the very muscly toothbrush. He's a funny guy.

Now for one of our favorite treats!

When I was younger I worked at Jamba Juice and turned my skin orange because I drank carrot juice every day. In hopes to get Reuben to drink and LIKE carrot juice I whipped up this little drink. It's just 16 oz. of juiced carrot juice, 10 frozen strawberries or about a cup of other frozen berries. That's it! You can't even taste the carrot:)
* Richest source of vitamin A
* Improves skin
* Strengthens bones, teeth, and hair
* Encourages collagen production (keeps those wrinkles away)
* Helps fight cancer. Prevents your normal cells from producing free radicals which are basically mutations in your DNA.

8 months, let's wrap it up!

There are reasons I'm smiling in these shots. Here are a few reasons why...

1. We'll get to hold a baby and I wont have to hold up my stomach anymore 'cause he weighs so much!

2. Soon I will return to wearing regular pants and I wont have to try to remember to button them when I get up!

3. Perhaps I'll even get to run again and be able to breath! I can't breath most of the day because until the baby drops he's jammed up against my diaphragm making it impossible for it to do its job. Also when I do pilates Reuben has to help me roll over just to get off the floor.

4. I'll be able to do moves like this without worrying that I might tear my symphysis pubis again. Even though that sounds gross, it's just the ligament between your two pelvic bones. It keeps them together except if you're me- then it splits in half:)

5. Soon weight gain wont be a weekly habit... well it could be, we'll see.

6. Soon I will teach Reuben how to change diapers!!!! He did a great job with his niece Bella, hahah.

But for reals we are super excited to have a little boy and would gladly welcome him late in March if he wanted to come then, but if not we'll wait until April.
