showered with love!

Well, this past Saturday was my baby shower, and what a wonderful day it turned out to be! I started planning and crafting for the shower months ago, and even though it was a lot of work, it was all worth it! Everything came together wonderfully! 
 I can't thank everyone enough for coming, bringing/sending gifts, and sharing the special day with me! We had both old and newer friends there, and even though I wish all of our families from far away could have come, I'm grateful that my mom was able to be in town for it! 

Like my invite? You can order it here!

 One of the yummiest, best ideas ever.....

A little 'guest book' that a friend made....
Everyone left a thumbprint and signed their name, and then she made each one into birds. 
This is definitely going on the nursery wall!!

A friend that works with Keith made us the MOST AMAZING diaper cake that I have ever seen...

 One of my favorite handmade gifts ever.... A sock monkey for Liam!
(Keith does not like 'Mr.  Monkey' for a name, so I'm taking name suggestions!)

 Again, we are so so so very grateful to the love we've felt from everyone!! It's hard being far away from family during this time, but our little Hawaiian family makes it just a little easier!

I was so busy last week that I sort of skipped my 32 week update....
So on to week 33, time sure is flying!! 
How far along? 33 weeks!
Total weight gain: a bit over 25 pounds
Maternity clothes? Indeedy-roo, maternity or just laaarrge sizes!
Sleep: I am still sleeping pretty ok, but it's getting harder and harder to get comfy....
Best moment this week: The WONDERFUL shower!! And my birthday was last week, too, I keep forgetting about that! That was fun. :) Ate right on Waikiki beach at Duke's, AMAZING fish tacos and Hula pie.
Miss Anything? A margarita to go with my fish tacos would have been realllly really nice....
Movement: Alllll day, and it's starting to hurt!
Food cravings: Not necessarily a craving... but a hula pie right now sounds quite delicious!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!
Gender: boy boy boy
Labor Signs: I don't think so. I don't think I've had any Braxton Hicks yet, and I keep wondering if I'll really know I'm having them...

Everyone says yes, I will....So I'll wait and see!
Symptoms: Heartburn and awwwful leg cramps, and it is hard to be comfortable at all. :/ Might as well get used to that, the next 7 weeks will only get worse.

Belly Button in or out? outeroo

Wedding rings on or off? ON! I haven't really had any swelling yet, so that's one thing to be thankFUL for!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Now that the shower is over, it's time to finish putting my nursery together!

Showing? I have to admit, hearing 'you're about ready to bust any day!' is getting slightly old.... I'm NOT ready to bust, thanks! I still have to put up with this for nearly two more months
But I do plan on enjoying it the best that I can.
