We had your first baby shower this weekend- for some reason it made it feel just THAT much more real that you will be here soon! It was hosted by the girls in my small group at church, and was a mixture of church friends and pharmacy school friends. You got oodles of gifts, and I definitely choked up a few times by how wonderful everything was, and how special the friendships I've made here in Tulsa are. We are so excited to move back to Missouri, but I will miss a lot of things about your hometown!
This third trimester definitely has it's rough spots. It's still better than first trimester nausea, but a lot of your kicks and punches and rolls really hurt. Sometimes you like to just poke an elbow out for awhile, and man those spots are sore. You also like to stretch around my belly button and that sucker feels like it's going to pop! I can only imagine what the next few weeks will feel like, but I'm definitely understanding why women are so eager for the baby to come out near the end of pregnancy.
Mostly though, I'm just ready to know when you'll come, what you'll be like, and start testing out my mama skills. I'm sure there will come a day I'll be wishing you back IN, but right now, I'm so eager to hold you in my arms and figure out this mama thing that I'm praying the next few weeks pass quickly! We love you so much, baby girl!
