36-week Belly Pics~a week behind

That seems to be my story right now. I can't remember anything lately, so finally I had David take these at the end of the week. I feel Caroline is really having a growth spurt right now. I went for my 36-week check-up a week ago and I was 1 cm dilated with no effacement, so I probably still have a ways to go. I had gained two pounds, so a total of 16 so far. My blood pressure was still perfect, thank goodness. I go this afternoon for my 37-week check-up, so I am hope for just a little more progress to get us closer :) I have a feeling Caroline is in no rush to come in the next couple of weeks, so if everything stays on track, she should be here in about 3 weeks :)


My good friend Katie and her husband Jared, had a sweet baby boy Luke Jared Thomas on Friday morning at 8:34 am. He weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20 inches long. David and I went to visit the family on Friday night, but only got a picture of Luke on David's phone. He is a beautiful baby with gorgeous brown hair :) Congrats to the Thomas family!!!

I want to wish all the wonderful Father's out there, a very Happy Father's Day!!!! I know Caroline is not here yet, but I really want to wish David a very Happy Father's Day because I know he is going to be the most wonderful "Daddy" to sweet Caroline!! She has no idea how much love her daddy has had for her from the first day we found out I was pregnant. I can't even imagine the love David will feel for her the first time he sees her (which will be in just a few short weeks!!). Happy Father's Day to Ken (David's dad) and my daddy. David and I are about to go visit my dad's grave site in just a few minutes. I would do anything to have my dad back for one more second just to tell him how much I love him!!! So, everyone out there tell your dads how much you love them today and everyday!!!

Baby Hiegel is here!!!

Congrats to Tommy and Sarah Hiegel on the arrival of their baby girl Cecilia Cate yesterday. This was an e-mail from Tommy: Cecilia Cate Hiegel (Ceci) was born by Cesarean at 11:44. She weighed 6lb 6oz and was 18 3/4 inches long. She was born with a tooth, which was really loose and pulled shortly after. She also has really long fingers and toes. David and I are going to visit tonight, so I am hoping for a picture of the beautiful Cecila :)

Last two weeks of belly pics!!!

I was so busy last week with Sarah's wedding that I forgot to post 34-week belly shots. So, here is 34-week and 35-week. I go Monday for my 36-week check-up and then weekly after that. I am still feeling great, just lots of ankle and feet swelling. I can't believe how close it is getting!! Also, our camera is about to bite the dust, so I didn't get very many good pictures at the wedding on Saturday. As soon as the photographer gets done, I will have a CD with all the pics, so get ready for a blog overload of wedding pics in a couple of weeks. The wedding was beautiful!!!!

FYI: We have a new Nikon D40 on it's way, so we can start playing with it and get it ready for Caroline's big entrance. Thanks to Grandpa Ken and Grandma Joyce :)

Memorial Day!!

David and I took the boat out on Sunday before Memorial Day. We got halfway to Choctaw and realized the water was probably going to be really high, due to the floods. Well, when we got there the lady at the front told us that there wasn't a boat ramp anymore. So, we went and checked out the scene and people were putting their boats in without the ramp. I wish I would of taken pictures of how high the water was, but it was crazy trying to get the boat in and maneuver the dogs. It is probably going to be the last boat outing for awhile. Katie and Lacey really missed their islands, since they were all under water. By the way, we are really wanting to sell our boat because we both can't stand to see it sit all summer with no use. With Caroline just a few weeks away, it will not get any use the rest of the summer.

Sarah's Lingerie Shower!!

Way too tight baby tee, that is non-maternity, she ordered these before she knew I was pregnant :)

The lingerie line with more lingerie!!

All the guest favors, I did bags with bath salts and floating candles.

So embarrassed, it was too funny!!

Saturday night was Sarah's lingerie shower and bachelorette party at my house. It was so much fun!! For everyone that knows Sarah, she is very conservative. Let's just say her face was red all night, there is even one picture where she is crying, she is so embarrassed. We had lots of yummy food!! Sarah got so much fun and pretty lingerie!! I also went to The Painted Pig and had a plate made with a picture of their new house, it turned out perfect. We are on the countdown, just two days down!!
