I prepared a delicious egg sandwich that looks so good I had to share the pic. I fried an egg with fresh parsley dill yogurt cheese and layed it atop fresh Amish sourdough bread. Delicious.... and as I sit down and think about the last few weeks and project what life might be like in the next 6....yes I said 6 weeks... I think to myself, "Life is Good."
Bob and I went to the OB on Monday and Harper Elle is certainly growing. My belly measures 33 cm and she is approximately 4 lbs. I also am doing well, 18 lbs gained and healthy. Although, I am starting to understand when women would tell me how uncomfortable you get at the end. I think I use all the pillows in the bed at this point, there are 5, and Bob will be next. She is moving and kicking all the time but now I feel like I can see her head moving and pushing out of my belly. She is almost here and I picture what she will look and smell like everyday. We have been going to the pool for lots of exercise due to the ughhh.. 95-98 degree weather, and it's only the first official week of Summer. Got to love the southern heat.
I saw my family last weekend, my mom and sister threw me a baby shower in my hometown of Dunnville, KY! It was precious, lots of family and friends showed up! It was open house so people could come and go as they please, we ate and drank lots of punch! I will post the recipe because you will want to make it! My sis, Lee Ann, made all sorts of goodies for little Harper and will be starting her business really soon. Diaper towers, hand crafted burp clothes, and baby food just to name a few. My mom surprised me again with some really old baby blankets from my grandmother, great aunt, and one of our oldest family friends. Vivian, who has been like a second grandmother, gave me my outfit I wore home from the hospital....well my mom had it cleaned and gave it to me. It is so special to have the memorabilia to pass along to my little sprout. I know she will appreciate it when she gets my age.
It is all really coming together, preparing for the amazing miracle! I am really anxious to see her but I have just a few more things to do before then....take several naps, get a pedicure, have dinner with friends 2-3 nights a week, and buy lots of stuff I really never knew I would need. My bud Kelly is coming over this weekend and we are going to finish up the nursery. I will be posting the updates there....I just haven't got it quite right!
