Finally a few pictures!

With all the nesting going on around here, I only get on to update about once a week. I keep telling myself I need to write more, but I don't listen to me! I finally downloaded some pictures of my shower on to the computer for you...

This is of me, my sister (in the middle, pre-surgery), and my brother's wife:



And me opening gifts looking like a dork (I am holding The Belly Button Book):



Dorothy's cake:



Me displaying said cake:



And, because he's so cute, here's our kitten!



We decided to name him Goatee due to the black dot on his chin. He's definitely a livewire, but tons of fun. He has gotten really attached to me. Whichever room I am in, he's right there with me, eventually curling up on the floor and going to sleep. He is in my lap whenever I am at the computer, purring his little kitten purr. I think I'm in love!

The countdown continues! 5 more days until my cerclage comes out and I, like most women in my situation, want Dorothy to make her appearance shortly thereafter. We'll see if that happens. Somehow I doubt it, but anything is possible. At any rate we're ready. The bags, boppy and carseat are in the car. The nursery is almost done (just have to fix one drawer) and the furniture painted. Come on, baby! I am full term (37 weeks) on Saturday.

Congratulations, Becci!! I will be thinking of you on Saturday when you reach full term! I, myself, will be hitting the 2nd trimester at that time. Good luck on your cerclage removal! Mine goes in on the 30th.
Thanks for sharing the pictures. Goatee is soooo cute and what a great name! Good luck with the rest of your nesting! :)

Yay, so glad you're having such fun nesting! Hopefully Dorothy makes her entrance very soon after that stitch comes out. I'll be praying you have a quick and relatively painless delivery!

P.S. Goatee is ADORABLE. I'm a cat nut and fully approve of the new addition :)

You look so beautiful! And way skinny! You are going to be one of those ladies who are super skinny pushing a stroller. Don't forget to pack the camera :) I don't have any pictures of the last week and a half of my pregnancy because I packed the camera so I wouldn't forget it at the hospital. Can't wait for Dorothy!
