30 weeks

Hey followers- looks like we're 3/4 of the way there. And that brings with it such mixed emotions for me. I'm obviously ecstatic about meeting Gil and holding that sweet baby in my arms. We've got such an exciting new step ahead of us and we're anxious for that. However, I am such a fan of being pregnant. It's still easy, I still feel great, and I can't imagine it ending.

Gil decided that 2 a.m. was a great time to play today and I didn't mind at all. I just lay there for 30 minutes savoring every single movement, knowing that this won't last forever. And man, I'm going to miss it like crazy! My love for this baby grows so much every single day though and I can't wait to see what he or she looks like. (oh and if it's a boy or girl...)

Aaron and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Saturday by spending the night in Stillwater where we went to college. We ate our favorite restaurants that we've been missing, swam in the majorly overchlorinated pool at the hotel, and took a wonderful walk around campus (partly in the rain).

The picture above is of our library (a place where I spent very little time, but walked by frequently.) And below is Aaron at Theta Pond feeding the geese and ducks.

This is me next to Theta Pond in the same spot where we got engaged in February of 2003.

And of course, the weekly belly shots! I feel like I had another major growth week this week. Luckily, my brave pink tank top showed back up...

Don't mind the disarray of my tank in this one, I had just woken up from a nap on the couch and apparently didn't bother fixing it before posing.

Yay for no stretch marks yet!!! I realize that I still have 10 weeks to get them, but I'm holding on to hope.

We have our first shower on Saturday given by both of our moms and an array of other hostesses. There have already been quite a few RSVP's so I'm thinking it's going to be a good turnout. We'll get to see lots of friends and family that we don't see very often, so I'm really looking forward to it. And Aaron can't wait to open the gifts! Plus, the lady who made our wedding cake is making my shower cake so I'm super pumped to load up on cake!!!


  1. Hooray for cake! Wish we could be there for the shower(s). You look gorgeous and so happy. Can't wait to see you July 4th!

  2. Happy anniversary! Hope you enjoy these last 10 or so weeks! I also hope you have a fantastic time at your shower!

  3. Your getting closer! And a baby shower! SO FUN!:)

  4. Happy Anniversary!!!
    Your belly is so perfect - be thankful about those stretch marks. You'd pass out if you saw mine, I can't even begin to count them!
    Have a blast at your shower!! Can you believe we're having showers? I swear this is all a dream...

  5. Looks like you had a fun anniversary weekend. We always enjoy going back to campus. Yay for cake this weekend and friends! It'll be an awesome shower - can't wait. You look great as always - we need to get belly shots of us girls this weekend when we're together.

  6. Happy anniversary girl!!!! You are looking fantastic (as always). Congrats on no stretch marks! I'll cross my fingers you don't get them (because man, they kind of hurt!!).

    Can't wait to see pics from your shower and hear all about it! Have a fabulous time.

  8. Sounds like a REALLY fun anniversary. And you're looking fabulous! Pregnancy agrees with you, and I totally hear you on loving being pregnant so much I wish it would go on a bit longer.
