Our family and friends hosted a baby shower for baby Isabella this past Saturday. It was amazing how wonderful it was. Everyone worked so hard and everything was so beautiful. Saturday my friend Andrea from North Carolina flew in and my family from Louisiana drove in. Dave's family came in from Austin. We had such a great time and little Isabella got so many beautiful presents!!!! Sunday we had family over for brunch and then worked on the nursery a little more. We are so ready for her arrival. She is still very active and weighs about 5.5 lbs.
Dave and I had our 3rd ultrasound today....I must be going crazy because the appointment wasn't supposed to be until next Tuesday. I guess I got the days mixed up, but thankfully they did the ultrasound anyway. She is soooo cute. She weighs about 4 lbs 12 oz. We could even see that little Isabella has hair! She spent most of the time with her hand near her face (I think she was sucking her thumb or sucking on her arm). I am starting to get a little uncomfortable, especially when I am sitting. Tonight I had a five hour grad. class and kept having to shift.
We had a great weekend. Friday started out crazy with Dave, Christa, and I having dinner and then going to a pub called Stag's Head. Dave and Christa had the brilliant idea to drink Irish Car Bombs (Guinness with a shot of Baileys). I of course was the very reliable DD. I have to admit they got pretty annoying after they each had 4!!!! Saturday Dave and I cleaned out the garage and bought our first big furniture purchase. We needed a new couch and have started to baby proof the house in anticipation for Isabella. Dave wanted leather (because of the baby) so we ended up buying a nice leather sectional. Sunday was Dave's 1st father's day!!!! He is going to be such a great dad. He is so excited about meeting Isabella. His parents sent him a daddy diaper changing kit that was so cute. It included goggles, gloves, a close pin (for the smell) and lots of other cute things!!!
Dave and I had a few friends over for dinner tonight (Misty, Boyd, Lora, and Jeremy) Dave and I made pasta and a few other things to go along with dinner. Lora and Jeremy are going to Michigan in a few weeks and won't be able to make the baby shower... they were so sweet and brought over Isabella a present... the cutest rocking horse. I told Dave I could already picture Isabella with little pig tails riding the rocking horse. Things are still going great with the pregnancy. My only complaint is that I wake up every day at 3 am and can't go back to sleep. From what I have heard this is normal. She is kicking all the time and actually jabbed me the other day so hard I screamed. Dave thought I was going into labor, but I had to tell him that it was just so painful :) We have our last utlra sound on Tuesday. I can't wait to see what she looks like as a normal baby. She weighs around 4 lbs right now.
Dave's college roommate Chris and his fiancee Amanda got married this weekend. It was a very nice wedding. Dave was a groomsmen. Friday night was the rehearsal dinner and Saturday was the wedding. You can tell we are all getting older because there were so many babies....they were cute!!!! I have 9 more weeks to go. Friday was my last day of school. I don't have to go back to teaching until September 22!!!! I am taking 4 graduate classes this summer, so I should be pretty busy.
