Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures at the actual shower. I had been up since 4:00am and I hadn't been able to take a nap and it was a warm day so I was exhausted and really swollen by the time I got to the shower. I still had a GREAT time though! I have LOVED being close to my family during this time. Most of my aunts, uncles, cousins, great-aunts, great-uncles, on both my mom's and dad's side live within a 5 mile radius of where I grew up so family had always been an important part of my life. I have LOTS of fond memories with not only my 1st cousins but also my 2nd and 3rd cousins. It was really awesome to see how God provided almost everything else I needed by leading my family to get just the right gifts. Today I am going to have fun washing all of the clothes and then making my list to purchase the things I need to have on hand before JB arrives.

Here I am in all of my swollen glory! Jeff asked me the other day if I was going to miss being pregnant. To be totally honest, no at this point I am ready to be done. I am definitely learning the truth of what one of my friends told me a long time ago...the last month is so miserable so that you actually look forward to labor and delivery. Actually it isn't that terrible, but it is definitely not heavenly!
I had an ultrasound on March 31st and they thought that Jellybean is 7lbs. 3oz. Which means he could be around 9lbs. when he is born. Definitely a healthy "little" guy! I'll have another ulstrasound next week to see if he actually growing at that rate. I'm just praying that I will go into labor naturally and soon! Judging by his movements the little man does not have a whole lot of room in there! We are so ready to meet him!
