DH caved (we've been trying to hold off) yesterday and opened up the travel system. Now there is a super cute stroller/carseat sitting in my dining room making me more impatient! :lol:



I'm working on crocheting him a blanket to help pass the time and I am loving how it is turning out.




So have lots of you had baby showers already? My mom is throwing one for my sister and I on June 1st. I swear, it seems like forever away. I'm looking forward to getting baby stuff, of course, but I'm more excited about seeing people I haven't seen in forever! Haha... I have like... zero life lately. :P I can't wait for some (adult) human interaction.



Hope all you ladies are doing well!

I haven't had mine yet. Not sure when we'll do it. Probably mid/end June.



I used to be excited but not so much anymore... we don't need much of anything so I don't know how it's going to play out. They desperately want to shop (they are all shop aholics haha) but we've literally got garbage bags of clothes (saved everything from DD1). I don't WANT new everything. I bought a few things second hand. I only need a few small things like lotions... which I'm going to be picky about.



OH well, if they want to spend money I can't stop them. I'll appreciate the thought. Hubby's family is really sweet to me. It makes me want to cry sometimes, I feel more a part of their family than my own a lot. :(

I probably wont get a baby shower. its not typical to have them here for 2nd and 3rd babies. We also have them after baby is born. I would love one though. But i dont really know enough people either.

Thats how i feel about my inlaws too. While i get along with my mom just fine, my motherinlaw just seems to show she cares alot more. She has already asked me if she needs to take time off work to come stay with me for a couple days after baby is born...I told her no! that ill be fine haha

I didn't think I was getting one. Nobody bothered when we had Silas, so I figured eh why would anyone this time? It was really nice but we definitely have so many newborn sized outfits that they may not even get to wear some. :(

I am having a baby shower on May 18th. I am excited mainly because I love socializing. :). My sister is throwing it for me. I am glad we have them before baby gets here. I have been to a few with baby there and the poor child just seems miserable. Plus I would have a hard time passing around a little baby. My husband and I plan on having a total of 6-7 kids. Since everyone already knows I hope we only ever get behind our back judgements. LOL. So...the fat face has started for me. With my first daughter my face never gained weight. Anyone else having the face weight gain?

Quoting Kristin♥Kaleb:" I know!someone told my husband to get a vasectomy cause our family is big enough. he has 1 and i have 1 that only means this is my second pregnancy and his as well. some people should shove comments. "


Lol we have relatives asking us about it. They all say "3 kids is going to be hard work." Mind you, ALL of the people who have said that, raised 3 kids. I'm beginning to wonder if they're all just afraid we'll have more and still be just fine and they'll have to eat their words, lol.



The best part is, we don't even want more. But it's so much fun to make them think we're not done! :P

I know it's kinda irrelevant to anything, but...with Kate Middleton being due the same month as us, I've found it really interesting to watch her lol. She's finally showing! http://www.cosmopolitan.com/celebrity/news/kate-middleton-big-baby-bump?src=spr_FBPAGE&spr_id=1440_8116125

Her bump is so tiny! I thought for sure she would have one of those giant ultra cute bellies. :P Weird how that happens
