Monkeys, monkeys, everywhere you look, monkeys!

Yesterday, my wonderful friends hosted a baby shower for me.
It was such a great time, I'm sad that this will be my last ever baby shower.
However, I'm so grateful for all the wonderful friends I have in our little community, they are all like family to me.
These women went above and beyond for me and I truly appreciate it.
It was a Monkey theme and we all had a great time!

Mother's Day 2010

Well, I'm a couple of weeks late in posting this.
These are the beautiful gifts that I got from my children for Mother's Day.

Two gorgeous, hand painted coffee mugs.
Artful potter came out to the childrens' school about a week before Mother's day and all the children got to paint a mug for their Moms.

I couldn't have asked for a better gift.
My daughter wanted to know who's mug I was going to drink my coffee out of first.
I told her I would put half my coffee in her mug and half my coffee in my son's mug.
she was satisfied with that answer.

7 weeks. I only have 7 weeks to go until I'm home free.
This baby has hijacked my body for the time being and I'm simply miserable.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to be pregnant and I'm overjoyed that I'm able to give life to another human being.
However, these past 2 weeks have really been hard on me.
Lately, I've had trouble sleeping. I can't seem to find a comfortable position.
When I wake up in the morning, instead of feeling well rested, I have  aches and pains in my hips and pelvic bone.
In some ways 7 weeks seems like it's a long ways off, but I know that it will go by faster than I think.

I'm trying my best to enjoy these last several weeks, knowing that this is the last time I'll ever be pregnant.
For now, when I'm feeling miserable and in constant pain, I need to remind myself to be focused on the final prize at the end.
A beautiful baby!
