We had our doctor's appointment on Monday. Things are still looking good and starting to move along. I'm not dialating yet, but I was softening. We also had Baby Care Basics that night. It seemed like a lot of repeation from the child birthing class. It definitely wasn't worth the money, but at the same time, we wouldn't have known that if we hadn't taken the class. Tuesday my coworkers threw me a baby shower. Miss Sofia made out like a bandit! She got lots of little outfits, sleepers, and onsies. She also got some bottles and liners, outlet covers, a rubber ducky, towels, a diaper genie, and an activity mat. And I think my favorite gift was a beautiful stained glass that a coworker made with a moon on it. And the green around the moon matches the walls.

The rest of the week has been pretty laid back. I've been trying to get to bed early because I'm worn out all the time. I am also in the process of making up some freezer friendly dishes so that we can don't really have to cook and we don't have to eat out for the first week or so that she is here. Tonight I made lasagna, but insted of one huge pan, I made 2 littler ones so we can have 2 dinners. Tomorrow I'm going to make chili to freeze and I'm making fiesta chowder over the weekend. And we are going to a pool party on Monday with some girls I used to workout with at Henderson Hall.

On a sad note, I just found out that one of my previous coworker's husband has passed away. So, Marc and I will be at a funneral over the weekend. If it weren't for Delores, Marc and I might not have meet. So we both feel very compelled to go and support her. Our long weekend won't be all fun and games.

Keep your fingers crossed, maybe this baby will come this weekend! Oh, and if you want to see a new belly shot, head over to Alli's blog. At the bottom of her entry dated Aug 27, 2007, titled Maryland!, there is a picture of Alli, SB, and me. That picture was take Saturday night, so I was 36 weeks 3 days.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I will pray for you and his family. You are so smart though to start cooking now. Because you sure aren't going to want to do it once you get home! :-)
