the countdown

I'm 34 weeks today, and can hardly believe it.

Sometimes I can't even remember what life was like before I was pregnant.
Was I ever actually able fit into my clothes,
 sit comfortably at church,
or leave the house without Malox??? 

Even though 90% of the time I look forward to not being pregnant,
there are a few things I know I will miss...

Having the excuse to eat whatever I want, whenever I want,
The instant friendship that occurs between me and other pregnant women, 
(similar to that of truck drivers and/or bus drivers)
Brandon's eagerness to rub my feet and back,
The encouragement of weight gain,
The constant comparison of my baby's size to that of different items in the produce department,
(this week she's a large cantaloupe)
and most importantly
The excuse to shop on a weekly basis because I can't fit into last weeks pants,
or shirts,
or shoes.

238 days down
only 42 to go!

Last weekend Brandon's cousin Jay R married the beautiful Natalia
and we were lucky enough to participate in the celebrations!!

Waiting for the happy couple to make their debut

Introducing the extremely happy
Mr and Mrs Johnson!!

The bridal party!!

I thought this picture was cute of Brandon and his cousin Gavin.

At the Joseph Smith Memorial Building for the lovely luncheon

Some of the groomsman

Waiting for pictures outside the temple 

I thought this picture was so funny!! 
I must have just said something that shocked Brandon...I do this a lot.

We had to get a pic of the two pregnant ladies.
Stacia and I are due just a couple days apart...i'm thinking future best friends.

What a wonderful weekend we had celebrating Jay R and Natalia!
They are such an awesome couple and I am so excited for them to start their life together.

PS) I realize that I look gigantic in the pictures. 
I'm 33 weeks and getting very excited to welcome this little girl into our home.
Right now her favorite things to do are...
get the hiccups the moment I lay down to fall asleep,
kick me as hard as she possibly can in the ribs and bladder,
oh and 
i'm pretty sure she has a hidden trampoline in there that she loves to just jump on all night long. 

Dear Baby,
I'm thrilled that my uterus is providing quite the entertainment for you,
however I was wondering if we might be able change the
party hours from
ALL night long...
to any other time?
morning, afternoon, evening...I'm open?

Your tired Mom
