04/03 WEEK 35

So, this past week I had a doctor appointment and I keep getting bigger and bigger. I am still measuring large and in charge of course. Other than that there was nothing new at this doctor appointment. The next appointment will be more eventful since it is my 36 week check up. Marne’ and the girls threw me a baby shower on March 31. Nicole was in charge of making the invites and mailing them out. I gave her a list of a few of my friends and family members and she took care of the list for Daniel’s family which is the Ruesch and Cazier side (Daniel’s dad and moms side) So, making a list for her was easy peasy she is the one who actually did all the foot work with addresses and such. I arrived at the baby shower which was at Marne’s house and it was decorated super cute with pinwheels they made and pretty much every color was at the shower. There was a lot of yummy food such as chocolate covered strawberries, pasta salad, veggies and dip, cookies and more. It was so cute and thought out. There were a ton of people that came to the baby shower and I loved it. They said pretty much everyone was there that was invited which is fantastic. Obviously there were a few people that weren’t but overall it was a full house. We got a ton of clothes, some toys, handmade blankets, diaper bag, hair accessories, a bouncer, towels and more. We literally scored!! I had a wonderful time and was so happy to see all the family since I hardly ever get to see Daniel’s extended family. After the shower Daniel came over (it was priesthood session for conference so he came over after that and after him, my dad and brothers went for dinner) and we stayed up talking with his sisters, mom and Aunt until like midnight. It was super fun.


03/27 WEEK 34

This week was my baby shower that my mom threw for Jelaire and I. It was on March 24 and it was huge. We booked my church building so we would have plenty of room to accommodate all the people that were invited. Jelaire and I invited both family and friends and my mom even had friends that were invited. My mom decorated the shower in aqua/turquoise, magenta/fuchsia and yellow which were the colors of the invites. On some of the tables she had pictures of Jelaire and I, pictures of the ultra sounds and pictures of Daniel and I and Jelaire and Kelly. Then she had table cloths and linings with a tissue flower in the middle with eggs and glass birds in the center. It was super cute. Daniel and Kelly were required to be at this shower and so they played a game to see who could be the “super dad” they had to do a mini relay with a baby doll and it was quite funny. Daniel won but it was pretty close. We have so many gifts from the shower I almost didn’t know what to do with myself. We had clothes, toys, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, diaper genies, stroller, shoes, bath tubs, towels, washcloths, diapers….you name it I feel like we got it. We still of course need all the big stuff still like breast pump, highchair, car seat and stroller and who knows what else I am not thinking of. I know Missy has some of it but it’s not here so it is still technically needed.


03/20 WEEK 33

The room is closer to being complete than ever. The furniture is finished and put in the room. I made the comforter for the bed. The window has a curtain made out of sheer fabric. So, we just need pictures to fill the frames in her room and we need to order the mattress and finish the bedding. Also, the spare bathroom is completely finished thanks to a ton of help from Daniel and it matches her room and looks adorable. So we are closer and closer to the finish and in the next month I have three baby showers so hopefully we will get a ton of needed stuff!


03/13 WEEK 32

Well this week I had my 32 week doctor appointment and everything is going super. She is still growing rapidly and I am still getting bigger by the second it feels like. I am still measuring big but my due date is staying the same. I am tired more often than not but that has to do with the lack of iron. I am taking an iron supplement every day but there are some days it just doesn’t work.

The furniture is coming along. Daniel painted it and we will get it upstairs in the next week. It looks absolutely wonderful so far. Daniel put up the bassinet that grandma bought and the crib that my parents bought for us and it is absolutely spectacular that we have something in her room.
