34 weeks, 0 days
We were able to get a 3D shot of our little girl at our OB appointment this last week. Will you just look at those cheeks!! I just want to eat her up!
We had a whole lot of drama at the OB/ultrasound appt. But, I'm waiting until tomorrow to give you the full update. We'll be seeing her specialists again and will have more information to report. Her kidney problem looks like it may have progressed a little. And, there was talk of delivering her as early as the last week of this month! All to say, our heads have been spinning.
SG and I have been talking a lot about how we need to savor these last few days. Though we are going to love having a baby in our lives, we also realize that what we have today will be gone forever. For the last few years its been just he and I, and our dog. Lots of quiet times and last minute jaunts to wherever the wind blows us. It is going to be a while before we can be so carefree again. We can't afford a real Babymoon, so we've been trying to do things that don't cost a lot. Today we took a day trip up to the Antelope Valley to see the California Poppies in bloom. They are literally at their peak. It was a gorgeous day. We took a lot of pictures, had some good laughs, and went on a relaxing drive. I don't think either one of us will ever forget this gorgeous day!
It looks like I'm already carrying two gallons of whole milk in my chest. Geez!
Here are some roadside beauties! I just love California Poppies...
Here is SG howling at our golden retriever, Harper (who is directly in back of him). Someone decided to take a dump. And, someone realized he didn't have a bag to pick it up!
On Saturday, my sweet neighbors gave me a baby shower! We had a great time, great food, fun games and oooooo, delicious CAKE! I'm a big fan of cake. Everyone was so incredibly generous. And, we got some great gifts.....blankets, bath supplies, clothes, clothes, clothes, a beautiful Moses basket, gift cards and little toys! It was the first of two showers that I've been blessed with. And, it was tons of fun. My next shower is coming up this Saturday.
Stay tuned. We'll have more to report in the next few days!
