31 Weeks

31 weeks - Saturday, April 16

We're definitely getting closer! I can't believe that it is, as of today, 8 weeks and 5 days until my due date - June 18.

Here's what we have left to tackle:
  • Put the nursery together. We have the pieces, and we have done a giant housecleaning, so this will be the fun part. The theme is vintage sports, and we have several pieces of memorabilia from the New York Yankees. There will also be shout-outs to the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the University of Georgia Bulldogs in the room as well.

  • Choose a pediatrician. We have one more visit set up in May, and then we'll choose. We've met with one, so hopefully our choice will be clear after this meeting.

  • Attend childbirth and infant CPR classes. All set for May.

  • Buy stuff. We need a rocking recliner, camera and some other items to get ready.
Our goal is that everything will be in place June 1, so that we will be ready to roll at any point. I have plenty to wrap up at work in the last month as well. And Bert has many school projects to cross off his list too. We are both super excited!

Super Bulldog Weekend

I had a magical weekend visiting family and friends in Mississippi. Bert was at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference presenting his research, so I took the opportunity to have a visit with my parents before our son arrives.

This past weekend was Super Bulldog Weekend at Mississippi State University, so I had the chance to visit with several dear friends. I am pictured above with one of these special people, Haley. She and I were sorority sisters. And Haley - if you really don't want to be on the blog, let me know. :)

Saturday, I was exactly 30 weeks pregnant. This photograph is taken in my parent's backyard. Also, this is the day we finally decided on our son's name! We are not telling just yet. :)

And here I am with my cousin Sam. He is wearing his new sports glasses for baseball season.

The best part of the weekend was just the time I had with my parents. Being with them, not in a hospital setting, was wonderful. I got to be someone else's little baby all weekend before mine gets here. What a blessing to have such incredible parents. The walks, the talks, the meals. I'll never forget it.

This little boy is so incredibly lucky to have the best grandparents in the world already.
