Okay, so I am the worst blogger. There is just SO much I missed that I felt completely overwhelmed every time I thought about blogging. Finally I took the advice of some of my aunts and decided to post just a few current pictures and then figure it out from there. So here we go!

#1 Jack was so sweet on Mother's Day that it just wore him out!
#2 Our little family
#3 All boy
#4 I love my boys!

Jack is 7 and 1/2 months old now. I can't believe it. Where did the time go??? it ALMOST makes me want to have an infant again. But for now I will enjoy the summer pregnant-free with my sweet little guy.

Oh what a great day. So I woke up and got to cuddle with my sweetie for a long time because it was Saturday : ) He wished me happy birthday( I kept forgetting because the baby was coming!) and then I got ready for my baby shower. It was fabulous! The decorations were so cute, the food was yummy and we played games! I love playing games. One of the games was a memory game and I even got one right : ) So here is a picture of all of Jack's gifts. Thank you everyone, and especially to my wonderful ward friends and family who prepared the shower. It was perfect :)
During the shower, I had a "special delivery". It was from Jared. A birthday cake that said "Happy Birthday Mommy" and my favorite flowers- Gerber daises. He is the best and knows me so well. Thank you lover boy! I love you so much!

I love this picture. Jared is such an amazing husband. He wanted to make sure I had a special birthday and it definitely was. He even cooked for me later that night! That was a great surprise. And after the shower he let me take a nap : ) When I woke up....

He put together the stroller!!!
Such a handy man- Thank you!
My sweetheart. After my great nap - we went golfing. Unfortunately I wasn't that good. He was too nice to tell me that though- but I knew it after swinging 5 times at a little white ball that just didn't seem to want to move! I had a good time watching Jared!

What a handsome golfer!

Jared tried to teach me how to golf- it might have worked, but I wouldn't recommend it being 39 weeks pregnant!
Here are some pics of Jared and I getting the nursery all ready, and the nursery too! It's not quite finished, but I thought I better post pics so my family will stop hassling me : )

His crib and rocking chair- thanks mom and dad for the cutest crib set and most COMFY chair in the WORLD!

I love his little airplane mobile : )

Wall art painted by Jack's mommy : ) I loved painting these because I got so anxious the last few weeks and painting was a good distraction!

I was doing Jack's laundry and I pulled out all his clothes to put in the dryer. When I looked back in the washer to make sure I got everything, I saw all these little socks! I thought it was so cute : )
Me putting together his storage bins
Jared taking the tags off of all his clothes- such a good daddy and husband!
BABY JACK IS HERE!!! Before I tell about that experience, I need to post a few pictures- then I can get to the good stuff : )

Week 39- This was also the day of my fabulous baby shower and birthday!
Week 38- Ill miss my little table!
September 3rd....or week 37- it's all the same towards the end right???

September 30th!!!

A WEEK FROM TOMORROW!!! I can't wait to meet the little guy. We are so excited. In fact I think Jared is more excited than I am. He asks me AT LEAST 10 times a day if the baby is coming on that particular day. Or he will kneel down close to my stomach and say, "Baby! When are you coming out?!" He is like a little kid. It is so dang cute. Last night before we went to bed, he was talking to him and said, "Kick once if you are coming out tonight." Nothing happened. He then proceeded to do this for every day of the week and the baby never kicked. Usually he is super active at night, so we thought he would kick sometime. But the baby is not even going to give us the slightest hint! So secretive. I think he is having too good of a time being with his grandma Emma Lou, Grandpa Jack and siblings. He is just not ready yet : )

I am a lot more nervous. The birthing videos they show in baby classes=worst idea ever. The ladies look awful, they don't smile at all, and they make funny grunting noises.....I hope I am not like that.

Sorry there are no pics yet of the last month being pregnant,nursery, etc. I'll get those soon. I forget about my blog because it has been forever until Betsy said this morning that I needed to get pics on there. Thanks for the reminder : )

In the meantime, there is a great deal going on if anyone is looking to buy an Udder Cover for themselves or to have lying around as a baby shower gift. Go to www.uddercovers.com, click on "shop now", select your fabric (there are only 6 options but they are really cute) and enter promo code "chatter". They are originally $32.00 but with the promo they are FREE!!!! You have to pay for shipping though which is $8.95. Not bad for a really cute cover. I don't know how long it is going on so hurry if you want one and spread the good news : )

Thank you everyone for your love and support. We are blessed to have such amazing family and friends. Hope everyone is doing well. The next time I write, we just might have a new addition to the family!
