Came home on Thanksgiving day, had a lot to be thankful for this year...a healthy pregnancy and baby boy, great family who have loved welcoming Dillon as much as we did and all their love and support. Everyone came to our house for dinner the day after. Didn't do a thing and it was nice! Good food, Dillon met his cousin, everyone cleaned up for us and we called it a night.
Made a bunch of yummy cookies with the fam, ate a pretty good number of them. Oatmeal chocolate chip, sugar cookies and peppernuts(a traditional cookie made every year at Christmas time...Evan usually eats them all in one day)
Had everyone over for my birthday. PF Changs for dinner and some awesome gifts! Dillon was even extra good for mommy on her birthday(during the day, haha).
Whew! That took forever! The past 3 weeks have been amazing as well as a learning experience of a lifetime. I love every minute of being a mom to this sweet baby boy. He is such a joy in our lives!!

about being overdue(so I don't think about the not so good things):
~Starting to loose weight before he comes out...I lost 2 pounds in 4 days last week.
~Having my mom here for a week before he gets here with homemade meals each night and the freezer already stocked.
~Sleeping in for days in a row without worrying about what time it is.
~Having time to do whatever I feel like doing...and a lot of times, that's nothing.
~Speeding things up in line at the store because I'm not lying when I tell them "Hurry up, Im in labor".
~Might be going to see New Moon, which I didn't think I would get to see until it's out on DVD.

I have heard some pretty funny and interesting comments lately from people around town when they see my big belly coming. Here are just a few from the past couple weeks.....
"Ohhh my...giiiiiirl all I saw was your belly coming around the corner...." -Daycare worker during a therapy visit
"You look like you are about to pop. Do you want a reeses or snickers bar?"- lady at Walgreens checkout
"When are you due?" "What are you having?" "What is his name?".....- lady at TJMaxx checkout who wanted to play 20 questions or something
"Oh my gosh, when are you due??" "Oh, thats not far at all, I hope you are ready!"- nice lady at Fresh Market
"I hope you are staying away from all those nasty people with the swine flu!!"- concerned lady at Food Lion
All true and I had a good laugh hearing them all...I love how strangers see a baby belly and just can't contain their comments, haha!

Baby Dillon received some awesome and much needed gifts. I am so grateful to have such thoughtful family and friends who love this baby so much already!! Baby Dillon is going to really enjoy his handmade gifts from his MiMi and MorMor(grandmas) who put lots of love into knitting a blanket and some sweaters!
My friends came over after the shower and helped put away all his new stuff and put the pack n play together(which was kinda tricky). Even though I was pooped and not feeling well all weekend, I had such a wonderful time at the shower. :)
**I have to post a picture of his closet now that I finally have it all organized(I think I rearranged it about five or six times, along with the dresser drawers). I'm sure that won't be the last of the organizing but everything has its place for now, so it works! Evan doesn't even bother putting things away because he knows I will just move everything around in a few days. haha.

The other day, I went to Michael's for some craft things and saw a big banner for a new store coming soon....Buy Buy Baby. I checked out the webiste and it is pretty much like a Babies R Us but with some different and more high end items(at least on the website). Sounds like a fun place to have close to us instead of going to Babies R Us all the time. Plus, Durham doesn't really have a lot of "baby stores" like Raleigh does. Can't wait to check it out!

Circles on one wall and Evan putting the light switch covers on, which we both painted
Both are from Etsy, which is one of my new favorite websites to find handmade products for a good price. Its also a good place to "steal" ideas of new crafts to try!

Brent and Mel
Not so great picture, but the only recent one of us
We have been taking it easy here, trying to stay cool is one of my main goals.....it has been so hot lately and I can't seen to cool off ever! I CANT WAIT until the fall for many reasons. :)
We don't have many plans before the baby comes, just the beach one weekend in August, my baby shower in September and an anniversary get-away in October....and enjoying our time as just the two of us for the last few months!

A girly bib for Stella and a polka dot burp cloth for Dillon. Both have terry cloth on the back and are finished off with a zig zag stitch. Hmm, what should I do next??
