After flying to Michigan for a week I am back home and have some energy. I never would have guessed flying while preggo would be so exhausting. As it is I'm sleeping nearly 10 hours a night. I haven't been able to do that since my alcohol soaked college days.
On Sunday the 28th my aunt gave me a shower. It was a lot of fun. There were friends and family I hadn't seen in a long time. Especially Amalie. I got to see some great pics of two rather handsome Helms boys. Good luck with those girls who are going to be sitting on your porch in a few years.
We(Emma & Mama) received so many lovely things. The handmade things were very nice. I should also mention that I apparently brought the snow home with me. I wasn't even home a day and we had three inches of snow come down. My apartment wasn't built for this weather. So, the afghan that Zoe S. made for us is going on the shoulders and the Ladybug quilt goes on the lap. Jack is putting the blanket my dad made on his lap.
Amalie gave me this lovely Wonder Woman barbie. I boxed it up carefully and had my mom ship it. I wanted to see Jack's face when he saw it. But he opened it before I got home last night. He wasn't so surprised by the WW so much as he was by the fact that our daughter is probably going to want Barbies. Poor thing grew up in a house of men and doesn't know what to expect.
Now it's time to start getting the crib and all the big baby stuff together. Weird but cool
