Baby shower! Almost 27 weeks.

I haven’t updated in a while- I’ve been crazy busy. This past weekend I went to two concerts, had an engagement session, had Hawk’s 3D/4D ultrasound, and had my baby shower. I AM WIPED!

The baby shower was great! My mom and mother in law did a beautiful job, and we got SO MUCH STUFF. We are prepared for the little guy- at least in the way of baby equipment- lol.

One thing I did want to mention about the shower is that my cousin Kristi saved me some knitted booties that my Meme knitted her two¬†kids when they were babies. I started crying. My meme passed away several years ago and I’ve missed her so much, to have that is so so special to me. Also, Kristi’s sister, Melissa, and her daughter, Natalie, saved a blanket Meme knitted for Natalie when she was born. They both gave me the blanket to take Hawk home in. I was so so touched. My Meme was the kindest women I ever met and I’ve ever known- she had a big impact on me. She’s tattooed on my body, for god’s sake! Needless to say I cried quite a bit when receiving those gifts.

Adam and I have made a date to get the upstairs cleaned out and Hawk’s nursery set up in mid November. I have one wedding left and three? sessions left- not to mention editing and album creation- but the end is in sight. I’ve started turning down photography jobs and referring out. I’m very tired. I had a double header wedding weekend the weekend before last and I hired an assistant for both days- what a difference!

I can’t remember if I posted about this but I had my first set of Braxton hicks contractions- which were weird! They didn’t hurt but it was definitely a new thing. They haven’t come back since.

I’m still only up a little under 20 pounds but my bump is getting big! I’ve started snoring and groaning in my sleep, with last night being the worst, so that’s a new thing for me. I have my gestational diabetes test next week and I’m NOT looking forward to drinking the Glucola, but I love sweet things so I should be okay? Famous last words? Lol.

Oh! Also, we had our 3D/4D ultrasound on Saturday, like I mentioned. Hawk was ass up, almost parallel. We had to do a lot of poking and prodding, position changing, and me jumping to get some photos of him. I felt so bad by the end, I could see him huffing and puffing, and he was starting to frown. No more elective ultrasounds for us, that was the last one.

That’s it for now I guess. Photos of my ADORABLE SON attached.
