I'm so excited!

I am so pumped! Chase's bedding is all done! Janet (my mother-in-law) picked it up for me today and said it looks so good. She is a very honest person and would have told me otherwise. I can't wait to see it on Friday! His nursery is almost done!!! I will post pictures as soon as I get some.

Chase is pushing his head directly on my sciatic nerve. I have been sitting on a heating pad all day. It helps a bit but I still have some pain. I am going to be rolling my bottom on tennis balls in a sock tonight. The Branham family has told me it helps a ton. If anyone else has suggestions, let me know.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

A Funny Conversation...I think

This was a conversation between my loving husband and me yesterday.

Amanda: Man, Chase was kicking me all night last night.

Justin: Really? I felt him a few times.

Amanda: Yep, I guess he was having a party that we weren't invited to in his womb. Get it? Womb...sounds like room!!! (i started laughing out loud at myself)

Justin: You are so funny, Wavy. (that's my 2 1/2 year old niece)

I really do crack myself up sometimes!!!

This goes out to my Austin friends....

I just ate a really yummy lunch that consisted of a grilled cheese and a cup of potato soup. Now I am having a peppermint hot chocolate. You may be asking yourself, "Why in the heck is she eating that?" Well, it is rainy, foggy, and 59 degrees in Alpine. Yes, you read correctly. 59 DEGREES!!! I am loving it. I can't wait to get back to Austin but I will really miss this weather.

I hope everyone's not too hot this afternoon in Austin/Central Texas!

33 Weeks

Here I am...33 weeks and still growing!

It's happening!

I have been fully aware of the fact that I am having a baby sometime around October 25th. I haven't been nervous and when I thought about the delivery process it didn't freak me out at all. Well, I officially started to freak out yesterday. I'm not sure exactly what happened. I was in Austin on Monday talking to people at work and telling them how I feel great and I'm not really nervous at all. I also was just telling my sister on Saturday how the delivery process does not freak me out at all.


I became uncomfortable yesterday and really started to feel pregnant. Then, it hit me...I will be birthing this baby. It really hit home when I saw a friend of a friend's blog. Her little girl was due one month before Chase. Now she has a countdown on her blog. Only 14 days until her c-section. Holy Crap! If I am doing the math correctly (which I think I am) that means I have one month and 14 days left!!! I am really going to have this baby! So many thoughts came rushing through my head. Will it be a c-section? Will Chase come early like his BFF/future wife, Jade? Will he weigh as much as Justin (10lbs,13oz)? What will he wear home from the hospital? What will Justin and I wear home from the hospital? You know we have got to coordinate!

I know it will all work out and that once I see Chase's little face everything else will pale in comparison.

On a totally different note, I have my countdown in my head until I move. It could be as early as the weekend of the 13th or as late as the 27th. We hired my replacement yesterday. She comes in at 3pm today to begin training. I am so excited!!!

Also, in case you were wondering, I did have a really cute outfit picked out to go home in but I am wearing it to both my showers. Justin (aka my fashion expert) explained to me last night that I would be wearing the same outfit for 3 different occasions and that when Chase looks back on pictures on day he will think his mom only had 1 outfit to wear during the entire pregnancy. Ahhh, what is a girl to do?
