35 Weeks...

How far along? 35 weeks

Total weight gain? I have gained a decent amount of weight. I finally am where I need to be...but not going to tell!

Stretch marks?  Still no stretch marks! 

Sleep: Sleep is hard to get. I have pillows all around me but I still have a hard time getting comfortable. The worst is that I end up on my back while I am sleeping and then I wake up because I can't breath. Only 4 weeks to go then I will get no sleep because of my sweet baby!

Best moment this week:  My friends Annie Wright and Heather Barnes threw me a baby shower. So many of my neighborhood friends came to support baby William. We got so many cute things for this baby boy! 

Baby Movement: He is so squished in my tummy but that doesn't stop him from moving all over. He is all the way up in my ribs and down low. I think he is going to be a gymnast by the way he moves.

Food cravings: I am not really craving anything in particular these days. I do have a hard time staying away from the sweets.

Gender: Boy

Labor signs: The Braxton Hicks are still hourly but I can deal with those but so far no other signs.

Symptoms: The rib pain has only gotten worse. I just keep telling myself that this is almost over and then the pain will be gone! I have been getting bad charley horses in my feet and cramps in my legs. They are awful but thankfully Bodi is usually there to help me through them. 

Belly button in or out? Still in...I'm not sure how long that will last.

Getting ready for baby? We are just about ready for this little guy. His room is 98% ready. His bedding is done and most of the decorations are set. All his new clothes and blankets are washed and in his dresser. We finally bought some diapers and wipes. I made his car seat cover and love it. If he came now we would be more than ready!

Looking Forward to? I am really looking forward to meeting this sweet baby. My doctor lets me go a week early so I really only have 4 weeks or less. I have an ultra sound next week and can't wait to find out how big he is!

Baby Shower...

My cute friends Annie and Heather threw me a neighborhood baby show this week. My girls and I were so excited! They did such a great job with the decorations and the yummy treats. 

Sophie and her friends were my helpers. They were helping me open presents and loving every second.

 I was so overwhelmed by how generous all my friends were. We got so many cute things for our little guy. For the first time I was excited about boy clothes.
 This is what happened to our living room after the girls went through all the gifts and helped me to "organize".
Thanks to my amazing friends little William can official come now that we are stocked up on boy supplies!

Easter Celebrations...

We love to celebrate holidays at our house. Easter is no exception. We had spring break this last week so we took advantage of the time to do lots of activities. We did the 7 days of Easter all week with the girls. We ready from the scriptures about Christ's last week on earth and about the true meaning of the holiday. 

We started off the week having a glow in the dark egg hunt with our friends the Wrights. The kids went nuts for it! It will for sure be a new tradition.

 We dyed eggs...always a family favorite!
We also made little bird nest treats.
On Saturday we had our neighborhood egg hunt in the morning....
and a family egg hunt and party at my Dads. The girls have sooooooo much candy! {Mom is lovin it!}
On Sunday morning the Easter Bunny came to bring the girls some fun things.

Then it was the best part of the! The girls looked darling in their Easter dresses and all of the lessons at church were just the thing to remind us of the true meaning of Easter!

So excited that our next "holiday" is William's birthday! Can't wait!
