Hiddy ho there neighbors - J and I just got back from a long weekend in Naples, Fl visiting my aunt Sarah and Gail. Mom, Greg and Mom's BF, Cheryl, came over as well for the weekend. It was a full house but while there was lots of golfing going on - I laid like brocoli next to the pool and read books - it was absolutely wonderful. We can't have Drew coming out and seeing his mom all pastey white :). The highlight of the trip was my trying to get my large backend into a middle seat of an aircraft that had solid sides on the armrests....yes, I feel for those folks that can't make this happen...AND I was already trying to 'pretend' I wasn't prego so I could stay seated in the emergency row for extra leg room......good times - really good times. On the way back when I knew we wouldn't get emergency row - I gave up and asked for a seatbelt extender - yes, I was one of those folks as well.
Here are some uploaded pics of my largeness - don't find too much humor - Drew is about 5 lbs and almost 20 inches this week according to the books. We start going to the doctor once a week now for updates on everything under the sun. Still measuring about on average - the doc says they look forward to folks with my type of frame - we are tall with 'legs and hips that allow them to just push back the legs and the baby comes right on out' - from her lips to my ears LORD!!
The girls at the office threw me an 'office shower' - Tracy and Sally outdid themselves with the food and cake - everyone chipped in for Target gift cards so I can finish up with the big items off of my registry (monitors for example). The cake they got was a cupcake cake shaped like a stroller - absolutely adorable.
Drew is busy kicking me every chance he gets - trips to the Chiro are still in full swing - J could feel Drew's head and butt on two different parts of my stomach the other day......20 more workdays and about the workload of 40 but I am excited to get some of the major items I have been working on in place and taken care of before I leave. My last work day should be around the 2nd of June as P&G gives us 2 wks of use or lose time off before baby.
I still need to lock in on a pediatrician, wash sheets, wash bottles, blah, blah, blah - so that should take a day :).....not sure if I will go stir crazy with 2 wks of nothingness......we'll see. Stay tuned for updates on due dates and size of belly photos. Drew kicks right now whispering goodbye and take care.
