37 Weeks

Last week (37 wks.) my girlfriend Angie Carter took some maternity pictures for us. I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out because it was so bright out that I could hardly open my eyes and the wind was throwing my hair all over the place, but she ended up getting some really great shots! Here's a sneak peak... I'll put the rest up next week. :)

On Saturday I made a last minute decision to fly down and meet my family at Disneyland for the day. It was only a 41 minute flight so I felt fine about breaking the rules on flying this late in pregnancy. Jerid and I had a bag packed just in case he had to drive down if walking all over Disney put me into labor. We also had the best Kaiser hospital mapped out which was only 15 minutes from the park. I made it until 2:30pm before I rented a wheel chair. I felt great for the most part, but this extra weight did not agree with my feet! I'm still feeling it! The best part of the trip was watching my niece and nephews participate in the Star Wars show. Those were some brave kids to get up there and fight like Jedi warriors!

36 Weeks

Week 36 was great! I've been coping with my fatigue and enjoying the fact that I'm getting so close to getting this little boy out of me. We had a very busy week. Thursday night Jerid and I headed to Sacramento to spend some time with my family. My brother Don and his wife and 3 girls are over from Australia for the month, so we were very excited to spend some time with them. It doesn't happen very often that all of my siblings are at the same place at the same time, but we all made it home for at least a few days. I didn't get very many pictures, but I'll be getting more from my Mom in the next few days. We had a birthday party for Annabelle and Eleanor Friday, Saturday my sisters and Mom threw me a baby shower, and Sunday was a great dinner for Mother's Day.

Here is a picture from the baby shower that I had with all my sisters and my aunt Karen. I have to say, I have some beautiful sisters, sister-in-laws, aunt and Mother! We had a great time and they spoiled us!

Laura's Visit

Laura and Ryen came for a visit a few weeks ago. Not only did Laura and I get some much needed friend time, but Jerid and I were able to meet little Ms. Ryen for the first time! She is more than a love bug! Here are a few snaps of the week she spent here.

Got a new dress to go with my new "hugeness"...
