It's Been Awhile...

I hope that each and every one of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sorry for the lack of posting and reading, but I needed a little blogging break. A and I left last Tuesday for Bham to be with his parents. It was my 1st Thanksgiving with them (not sure how I managed to go 4 years without doing Thanksgiving there.) I really missed my family, but overall we had a good time. It was strange not to eat turkey though (they have steak instead.) A lot of my friends live in Bham so I had the opportunity to see a few of them. I got to meet K's baby girl, Harper, and L's brand new baby boy, Jack. Three of my other KD pledge sisters and I went to the hospital on Wednesday to meet baby Jack and he was perfect. I got so excited holding him in my arms knowing that I'll have my own little man in just a few short months.

While in Bham, I went to the cutest baby store, Once Upon a Time, and ordered my baby book. It is similar to my wedding book. It is baby blue silk with embroidered brown polka dots and a big brown bow on the side. I'm having it monogrammed with Baby U's initials (jUr is his monogram in case you were wondering!) It has a three ring binder with the most precious inserts. It should be ready in 4-6 weeks. My MIL also had me register there because she insists this is the only place her friends will buy baby gifts. =) Pull my leg, it was fun and the have fabulous baby Bama gear!

Speaking of Bama---A and I went Saturday morning in the rain to the Iron Bowl. We were quite nervous about playing Auburn. They have beaten us the past six years! But, the Tide pulled off a marvelous game and a 36 to 0 victory. I was quite a site in my large plastic elephant poncho cheering on the Tide at the top of my lungs! (The outfit under was a cream colored cowl neck maternity sweater from Old Navy, Gap maternity jeans, houndstooth flats and red/gold earrings, with a very cute ROLL TIDE button.) Despite the horrible weather, we had a great time and it was fun to see my little sis (a senior a UA) and a few other friends. Singing Rammer Jammer about seven times will not be forgotten. On the way out, A bought be a onesie that I'll have to take a picture of soon. On the front it says "Game Day Baby" with a houndstooth hat and on the butt it says "Auburn Stinks." We couldn't resist, it was too funny! Next up, Florida. We are VERY nervous about that game. I wish we could go to Atlanta, but it is just too much right now with the economy and the baby. We're having a party at our apartment to celebrate and watch the game so I have a lot to do this week. Anyone have a fabulous tailgate dip for me to make?

I'm 30 weeks (as of yesterday)! The plane trip was not too bad, just really uncomfortable. I tried to get up and stretch a lot. Yesterday mornings flight was VERY bumpy and they would not let us out of our seats the ENTIRE trip. I survived without going to the restroom for 2.5 hours which is a new world record for me these days. However, the lady behind me and the stewardess got in a screaming match over her having to go to the restroom. I told A that I bet him $50 that the stewardess would call the police and sure enough, when we pulled up to the gate a police car showed up with several policeman. It was quite interesting.

When we arrived back to our apartment yesterday, I had a very special box waiting for me. My parents bought me the baby bedding that I posted about awhile back and it arrived! We decided to order it direct from the people that made it to save a few dollars. A and I put it on the crib last night (even though my mattress is not here yet). It looks fabulous and I'll take pictures soon. I love it and it is everything that I had hoped it would be! I can't wait to see my little one in his crib. =) I HIGHLY recommend Monarch Creations if you are looking for unique and well made baby bedding.

Ok, got to go. A and I are about to interview a pediatrician! We also have our first childbirth class on Thursday. Things are moving so quickly...it won't be long now!

I didn't get my crib bedding until after my daughter was born because we didn't want to know the sex. I ended up falling in love with the Pottery Barn Kids Penelope bedding and got it, but had looked at this very same company. I really liked the toile patterns. Can't wait to see pictures of the baby's nursery. Have fun decorating!

I love it-you, a very pregnant woman, can last the whole flight without going to the bathroom but the woman behind you can't??

I think all flights were bumpy this weekend. My sister and I had an awful flight back from CA
