So, I don’t think I ever revealed on the old blog-o that we’re expecting a baby boy this October. So – surprise! I’m pretty sure if you read this blog you already knew that anyway.
So, I’m entering month 8 of being pregnant now. Not too bad. I think the main thing I’m not enjoying is all the “restrictions” on my life; what I can do / not do, eat / not eat, etc. Yeah I might be going on a coffee/sushi/sweet tea/soft cheese/beer bender at some point after the baby is born. haha.
Last weekend, Oak’s family was visiting – and, a big surprise to me was that our friends and family threw me a surprise baby shower at Lake Crabtree County Park! I’m still kind of trying to figure out how it all happened but Daniela was supreme planner / project manager of the whole thing. Then she had some work stuff come up and she couldn’t attend the party! Ugh!! But, Donny did an excellent job of taking over (haha I’m sure it was exactly what he wanted to do!). Some other friends did a bunch of cooking (including a WHOLE PIG), and my mom and Dave did the decorating. The Millers worked their ultimate skills in deception that day. Yeah, Oak and his dad were cutting down a tree in the front yard when I left the house to “go shopping for my birthday gift”. Oak’s mom dodged every random question I had, and came up with the grand lie about why we were going to the park in the first place. I was clueless until I got about 10 feet away from the whole thing when it all clicked! OMG! It was so crazy! LOL
The other shocker was how many people came and all the wonderful gifts we received! Even people from out of town sent gifts. Now we just have to figure out what you’re supposed to do with all this stuff! haha check out the current state of the future nursery:
Thanks again everybody!!! xxooo
