Last Friday we also did another 3d ultrasound at Meet Your Baby, this one was a better experience which was a nice change and it was really nice that Melissa could join us. Claire still wasn't that into it, she didn't want us to get a good shot of her face so she moved around a ton, sucked on her toes, and laid her little head on her chubby arms. Even though I haven't been able to get the perfect shot of her face I love seeing what she is doing in there and understanding what each jab I feel actually is. She has big ol cheeks and she is already a gymnast. I love her. Thankfully they are letting us come back one more time to try again, my last two appointments were around noon so this time we will be going in at 8:30pm, maybe that will work better for her.
This upcoming weekend isn't quite as busy as the last one but it will still be full and very fun. Looking forward to Erica's honeybee themed bridal shower, Lago's birthday party/welcome home party and our newborn care class. Are you as stunned as I am that May is almost over? I can't believe June is only a few days away which means I only have about a month left of work! Crazy.
Last night I started the freezer prep so that once Claire has made her grand entrance Ryan and I have some food to eat that is just a freezer and a crockpot away.
hope you all had a lovely week
You are getting so big and so active! I can feel you all day every day and I can even see huge movements on the outside, I love it. I have been trying to get a video of you but you are still being coy, thats ok though - I am sneaky and I will keep trying. I don't know if you realized how much belly love you got this past weekend. Two of your aunts were in town and they could not stop touching you, hoping to feel you kick and just giving you lots of attention. Your little baby cousin also gave you a few nice rubs, she put lotion on for us because she even understands that we are crossing our fingers for a stretch markless pregnancy. Your grandma also threw you your second big party! You had a baby shower, everyone was so generous and showered you with so many amazing things. You know how a mattress to sleep on, a stroller to go around town in once you are bigger, a bassinet to sleep in when we travel, a sweet little bath pod, so so many clothes and toys and even a high chair! Man, you are so loved. I hope you can feel it.
Your dad and I are getting more excited every day, soon we will not only be able to feel you kick me from the inside but we will be able to see you kick me from the outside! It will be a treat. I can't wait to see all of your growth spurts, hear your little cries and see you stick your tongue out. You make me so happy Claire Olive, lets take a nap and think about our future.
