36 Weeks and a few days

So I'm going weekly to my Dr. now. That means we're getting close I think. She said not to expect Logan to be a day early from what she can tell right now. That's fine with me. I can't believe that I have just roughly 3 weeks left of not being a mommy. I'm going to try to enjoy every second.

So it's time for more pictures, and for a change of scenery Andrew and I stepped outside to our front porch. After the first picture we agreed that my smiles have been pretty weird lately. I don't know if it's the bigger cheeks, the pressure of the posed shot, or if I'm just not feeling picture-ific. So I tried out a couple of new poses. Enjoy!

The first picture - and the best shot of my Autumn decor

This is the face I make when people ask me how I feel

The monkey face

No explanation, but after this shot I was informed I was blocking all the pumpkins

Stay tuned for news of exciting progress in Logan's room. . .

"TCU ends BYU's BCS hopes, win streak, and undefeated season"

That's the headline. I was hoping for words like "crushes" or "trampled," but I guess "ends" is okay, too.
(I can't figure out how to make this link work, so cut and paste if you want more details of our crushing, trampling victory over BYU)

What an exciting night at Amon Carter Stadium! I'm not sure many thought we could pull this off, and although I tried to be hopeful, I also had my doubts. The Horned Frogs pulled it off. . . and then some. Our defense was incredible. Good things lie ahead for the Frogs - I feel it!

My feet and back hurt. Good night.

34 weeks

Leapin' lizzards! We're having a baby in 6 weeks!!! I had a Dr. appointment today and all is well. Logan is head down and about 4 pounds. Every time I hear his heartbeat I get goosebumps. We are so excited to meet our little guy! I had to get a flu shot today because the nurse "highly recommends" it. I haven't had a flu shot in years and can't remember the last time I was sick (knock on wood). I just KNOW that because I was forced to get this shot now I will get sick. I'm still feeling great and sleeping well. (and no more kankles for now)

Work is so stressful this month. Aside from the normal busy end-of-quarter stuff, the market is a mess, which you already know if you've paid the slightest attention to the news. My boss is out of town for 2 weeks and I'm SWAMPED with client calls and requests. This month is flying by, which is a good thing I suppose. . .

This is a fun new t-shirt I bought at Christmas in Cowtown. (Who grew out of her black bra?!)

Getting Very Close

Logan's room is almost complete. We're just waiting on his glider to arrive, window treatments, and some pictures and shelves for the walls. That sounds like a lot when I see it all written out like that I guess. But we'll get there. I had a dream the other night that I was going to wash all his clothes, but panicked when I didn't have Dreft, so I went out this week and bought 96 loads worth of Dreft. And at $21 a bottle, I'm hoping he's allergy free because we're switching him to our detergent!

Here are the most recent additions to his room - a sock monkey picture I got a Christmas in Cowtown and a bookshelf. At our Fort Worth baby shower all the guests were encouraged to bring a book to help build his library. What a fun surprise!!!

I have kankles.

This week I've been crazy busy after work shopping and volunteering at the Jr. League's Christmas in Cowtown holiday market. I've had a super time and have managed to get some Christmas shopping in, but after working all day and standing all night I can't see my ankle bones. Andrew was kind enough to rub my feet last night and I thought that when I woke up this morning I'd be all better. NOPE! Still have kankles.

This Mama Likes Pizza

For those of you who don't know, I work in a small office of a large investment company with 11 amazing people who all have very neat backgrounds and lives. One guy named Brian is mostly finished with building his very own wood-burning brick oven in his backyard. He and his sweetest-person-you've-ever-met wife Liz threw a baby shower for Andrew and me at their house last week - A PIZZA PARTY!!!! It was too cool to watch them dress a pizza and fire it. The oven was over 800 degrees and it only took 2 mintutes to bake each one. Brian and Liz make their own dough and sauce. I'm not lying when I say that this is the best pizza I've ever had. Thanks Brian and Liz and everyone from the office!!!
