May happenings

It's been awhile since I've posted anything, so I thought I would catch up on a few things that have happened in May.

First, my 3rd grade co-workers gave me a baby shower at work.  It turned out very cute and I got a lot of good gifts for the baby.  Here are a few of pictures from the shower:

Hard to read, but VERY cute!!

       The awesome gifts!!

Second, we took a much needed little vacation over the Memorial Day weekend.  In the 3 1/2 hour drive, we went from Visalia with temperatures of the upper 90's to San Francisco with temperatures in the mid 50's.  It was a nice break from the heat (especially for me!), but it turned out to be a little cooler than we had expected.  The whole point of the trip was that we had tickets to see Wicked.  I love this play!  I recommend that everyone sees it!  Ryan and I saw it last summer in New York.  We enjoyed seeing it again, although New York's was better.  We also did some shopping, went to Ghirardelli Square, the California Academy of Sciences museum, and Alcatraz.  It was a TON of walking in 2 days and I was the caboose of the gang, but it was a TON of fun.   One our way home we stopped at the Gilroy outlets.  It was a full and eventful weekend.  Here are a few pictures from the trip:

This is a horrible pic, 
but it's the only one of us that weekend

And finally, I thought I would update you on my ever growing belly.  I am now 35 weeks and counting down, although I know I still have awhile.  I have been feeling pretty good still and the baby seems to be doing just fine.  Within the last week, my feet have decided to swell pretty good.  With teaching it doesn't help, but I'm drinking a lot of water and trying to put them up as much as possible.  The doctor is guessing that the baby will be about average, which is 7 1/2 lbs.  Lets see how accurate that is, considering Ryan was 10 lbs.  We are getting very excited to see the little guy, but also more anxious and nervous for the labor and delivery.  I hope all goes well!!  Here's my 35 week picture:

Counting down the days

It has been awhile since I posted , so I thought I would give an update.  Not much has changed since I last posted, other than the fact that I'm getting bigger each day.  I am now 33 weeks.  I've been feeling pretty good still, although I get more tired and my feet have begun to swell a little.  The swelling usually is the worst after I have been teaching and standing all day or when I sit (like at church or in a movie) for a long time with my feet down.  The beginnings of the summer heat doesn't help at all (in fact, it's 102 today).  It's not the most comfortable thing, but I could have it a whole lot worse.

We have 2 1/2 weeks left of school (which is 12 teaching days) and I'm definitely counting down.  I love my little 3rd graders, but its time they move up to 4th grade and I get to stay home with the little one!  It is nice that Ryan teaches because he will be able to be home during the first month or so to help with the new baby.  Then it will be just me and the little guy!!  Can't wait...but I think it is still a little too early to count down by the days (although it is only like 48 more days or something...)

So that is about all that is going on with us.  Here are a few pictures of me pregnant to catch you up on how big I'm getting!  All I have to say is that it better come off easily!!
