Wednesday- 36 weeks Thursday- 36 weeks 1 day Yes, I have been taking pictures of myself like every day. Do you like my downstairs bathroom? It's the only place in our house that has a picture on the wall!
So there are, as I like to think optimistically, 2-4 weeks left until we meet our little guy! I'm still feeling pretty good. Tuesday after work I had a mini breakdown because I was so uncomfortable and tired. I tried laying down on the couch in my pjs and was getting kicked in the ribs and then he got the hiccups! I think Monday I was getting dressed and I made a comment about how huge I am and Hubby looked at me and goes, "I didn't realize how big your belly had gotten!" Then the other night I was lotioning the belly and he was brushing his teeth and the belly scared him out of the corner of his eye. I said, "What, did you think you saw a hippo?"
I've gained about 24.5 pounds according to the nice scale at home. We won't talk about the mean scale at the dr's office. My clothes and shoes must weigh like 4 pounds! I'm still substitute teaching a few days a week. I'm trying to encourage all involved in my life to think of it as something to keep me from getting bored now not really something to pay the bills.
We have been having fun talking and playing with little man. Hubs and him have little games they play. I usually just encourage him to kick Daddy. I swear the child now knows the sound of Hubby's alarm. It scares me a little how much the baby sleeps at night but as soon as Hubby's alarm goes off the kid starts dancing. I'm really hoping he will have the same habits once he arrives.
Hubs got the crib up this week which I wasn't expecting. The nursery is pretty much done except a few things we are waiting to get with our 10% offs from Babies R Us and Target. We also need to decorate the walls. I am going to be a featured mama pretty soon on Jen's blog. I will let you guys know so you can hop over there and see new nursery pics.
I had the quickest dr's appointment today I've ever had. She listened to baby's heartbeat said he was happy. Did the quick little strep b swab test and I was done. I'm hoping next week when I see her she'll tell me if I'm dialated and if his head is down. I'll probably ask if she doesn't say anything. This week I asked what number I'm supposed to call if I think I'm in labor.

I think I saw another couple in a magazine do coozies for their wedding favor and right away I knew we had to do it too. Our family goes camping every year and our friends and family love to bbq and have beers and coozies are a must. What better way to always remember our special day?
Now it is my brother in law's turn to get married and they are stumped on what to do for wedding favors. I'm sure all of you amazing wedding planners have great ideas for them. They want to do something inexpensive. Their color is eggplant. They are getting married at a golf course and both love to golf (just gave myself an idea with that one, they could do balls or tees). The wedding is June 4th and I have a feeling my butt will be helping with favors and since I'm 5 weeks away from having this kid and his nursery isn't done let's make it something easy! They both like to bowl. Ashley suggested heart wine stoppers which I might suggest to them. Ok so let me hear your ideas!

I was planning on washing and hanging up all his clothes. So I didn't organize things before I washed them. As the first two loads of laundry were finished I quickly realized that I didn't have enough hangers for all his clothes. I could have bought more hangers but I was thinking we would end up with a lot of empty hangers once we started putting stuff away that didn't fit him.
So I washed all his clothes so I could know how much stuff he had in each size. We only had enough hangers and drawer space for newborn, 0-3, and 3 month stuff. He has a ton of clothes for bigger sizes in a storage bin all organized so when he is out of the newborn stuff I can hang up the 3-6 months stuff and be ready for him to get bigger!
You know how baby clothes can make your ovaries ache and give you baby fever. Well when you are pregnant with the baby it makes your arms ache to hold him and dress him.
Look what his Daddy built him!
I can't tell you what a pain in the butt this dresser was. I wrote a long detailed story about what a pain it was and how awesome Babies R Us is and stupid blogger lost it. Blogger and I are in a fight right now. I'm not writing it again. Summary is Babies R Us rocks! If you haven't already bought furniture buy the stuff that comes already assembled. We didn't know most of their stuff does!
Kid has plenty of pjs. We can't wait to meet him!

So what if...
- I could end up wearing my hair in a pony tail every day this week. (Couldn't find an image that said the mean girl's pony tail quote on it :()
- I can barely drag my butt out of bed in the morning.
- I can't remember when the last time I did dishes was. I really am going to try to do them tonight.
- I am too tired to come up with anything else.

I'm linking up with Tara at Fabulous But Evil for today's Target Tuesday! Mama is going to have a good time at Target this weekend. We got a couple items that we are going to return for some $. I also have a gift card and coups!
I already bought this maternity shirt in gray on clearance. I have a coupon for 20% off so I'm probably going to get it in another color. This was the only color that showed up on the interent and I don't really know how to save the pics without them being tiny. Enjoy!
I also have a coupon for diapers and we need more! We were going to put on the invitation to bring a pack of diapers to play an extra game but we forgot. Luckily we have saved tons of money from hand me downs that we can still afford diapers, I think.
Coupon for wipes too!
My dad said this movie was pretty funny and I wanted to get it for the hubs to maybe watch in the hospital. I need to find out if the hospital has blu ray players (I'm guessing no) on our TOUR! this weekend!

My aunt makes these blankets for all the babies in the fam. We call them googas.
These are all the pics of me from my camera. There were a couple of me opening presents but I had a double chin so those are deleted! Our son was spoiled rotten. Our family and friends are too generous. We are so blessed! Now its time to get his room organized!
