Hi I've been MIA for so much of the time here - I'm sorry! We took a 14hr drive to California - just me and my 3 boys of the last couple weeks and I'm totally pooped. I still have laundry to catch up on and a million pictures to sort through. Someday here I'll update my siggy Maybe after this little guy is born. I've only got about 5.5 weeks left, if things go as planned. I'm the one who's 2hrs away from the birthing center and having never made it to 39 weeks naturally, I plan to have the midwives sort of help me into labor at 38 weeks so I don't deliver in the freeway. My last labor was only 1 hr long total so it is a real concern of mine.

This pregnancy in general is going well, our house building is coming along with walls going up today for the first floor. It won't be done before the baby's born, but honestly maybe it is better this way. I was hoping to have a less busy husband at the time of delivery... but that won't happen.

After today I'll see what I still need for this baby. At this point I need just about everything for cloth diaper stuff except a pail and sprayer. I also need a car seat base. These are sort of obscure things for the regular person attending a shower to purchase, so I'm interested to see if anyone even looked at my registry I made to help people know where on earth to buy cloth diapers.

I'll add some pictures later. I know I'll be getting something quilt-like from my MIL. She's a professional quilter and she's given all my boys just wonderful baby quilts. I'm excited too because my sister, who's never ventured the 2hrs it takes to get to my house, is coming too!

Sorry for the long-winded post there. I'll try to be more active in here.

**** Here are a couple pictures from my shower. Does anyone know what I'm holding on my fingers?


And this is my little guy, Matthew who wanted to pose with the presents. He's standing in front of the car seat base I received. Yay!!! I love practical presents!


You can see the owl theme quilt my mother in law made me there in browns and greens. And don't you love the tiny little tiger Halloween costume?? Matthew also has a tiger costume and my older boys have other animals so maybe I'll be a zoo keeper

I also received some cash/gift cards that I'll use to get a big portion of the rest of the necessary stuff like cloth diaper and breastfeeding supplies.

The best part of the shower was the both my sisters from Utah drove up. Neither of them had been my direction in the 5 years we've lived here so I was thrilled! They also got to see my house walls going up!!

Here's a bonus picture of that!!

Thank you for the pics!!! Okay, now I am guessing those are those teepee things on your fingers? I never had any for my ds and never even saw one before. But they are shaped like a teepee! Am I right? LOL

Looks like you had a fabulous shower! So happy you got to see your sisters too!
I remember my MIL buying peepee teepees for Spencer when he was a baby. It was so funny the first time he pee'd after I put one of those on him. It fell over and he kept on peeing. LOL

They are kind of a funny thing - during a diaper change you put one over the critical element to prevent being peed on or the baby boy peeing on himself. I was wondering if they would even stay on - I'll have to report back, ha!

They don't really work well, but they are hilarious.. I kept a couple of my son's, just cuz I thought they were funny, and it's fun to see them, and remember him so little. Glad you had a great day, and YAY for your new house!!! *hugs*
