|We love the Steelers! 32 weeks and this jersey makes Mommy look gimundus!|
Speaking of strange reactions, I will let all of you in on a big embarassing moment I had last week. We had our third birthing prep class on Thursday and it just happens that the topic was interventions if the baby gets "stuck" and pain management. Our very good RN was very bad and didn't forewarn us of the topic. Unfortunately, the video that accompanied the topic left very little to the imagination on either of these categories...and I very nearly passed out. It really didn't help that she brought each of the devices of mass destruction that were being shown on the video. I finally got up and left the room (how...I have no idea...sheer willpower I guess). After getting some water and fresh air by the doors, I felt a little better and Robin even walked with me to the lobby and out to the breezeway during break so I could get more air. Most people might worry about the baby. Well don't. She realized Mom was feeling like she might vomit...and decided to kick and punch her stomach. What a fun game! I don't know what it was that made me react this way. I make no secret that if I need one, I'll get an epidural, but I guess I just didn't need to know all the gory details. I'll also be darned if they put a pair of oversized salad tonges on my kid's head. If she's built like her father, she doesn't need a cone head to top it off!
Our weekend was full of baby time which I thoroughly enjoyed. Saturday morning my sorority sister, Kristin, went with me to see our sorority sister, Danay, and her baby Adalyn Fast for the first time since she was born. Unfortunately I completely forgot to take any pictures but don't worry. I'm sure we'll get plenty down the road! Adalyn slept nearly the entire time we were there and we loved the little sounds she made. I think she's going to be a Daddy's girl, too. Saturday night we got to spend time with Kellen and Rowen Roth. I hadn't seen either of them in way too long! My Goddaughter is growing up so fast! She is sitting up with minimal assistance and is super alert. She smiles quite a bit too. Kellen is a very energetic 2 year old. Robin LOVES to throw him around, wrestle with him, and Kellen loves to come back for more! I think Robin will be disappointed when our baby doesn't come out as a toddler. We'll have to work on a boy next so they can rough house all the time! We rounded out our weekend with Monroe Easley. She is only 2 weeks old and just an adorable little doll! She eats frequently which has got to be tough on mom but Kevin and Leah have done such a good job! I can't wait until Baby Sol can spend time with her bestie!

|Monroe really likes her bouncer! I'm not sure why this picture isn't showing up right side up since it's saved that way. Ah, technology!|
Well that's all for now. It's been a pretty laid back week. Hopefully I'll have more interesting stories to tell next week, as we'll have our first baby shower, final birthing prep class, checkup with the doc, and a few shenanigans this weekend.
