Mom assures me that I actually am bigger than I thought, I guess because I'm used to myself and she doesn't see me often:

Do I look exhausted in this picture? I should--I am.  I think that's the culprit behind a lot of my puffy-eyed pictures, along with water retention and being 9 days away from my due date of course.

The baby shower this weekend was excellent.

Ashley made those purple cookies. Can you believe it? They're gorgeous.

I can't get enough of this baby.  I want a chunky one like her.

Other than partying, we spent the weekend shopping.  Among other things, we finally got a carseat--this cute Britax Roundabout. 

 We have an infant carrier we're borrowing from Christy, but it turns out she'll need it back sooner than we thought!  AND this was on sale. (Ok this picture is of a different model, but it's the right cover. Close enough.)

I think we have nearly everything.  There are only like 2 for sure things left on our list, and even those we could live without.  It's weird to feel ready.  Well, okay, "ready" I guess.This is such a strange stage--trying to balance the knowledge that she could come at any time with the knowledge that she could come in a couple of weeks.  Making plans is weird because we have to be so flexible.  Any phone call I make is answered with "Oh my gosh are you in labor?!" and I can't believe that at some point, I will actually be calling for that reason.  For now, I am mostly just pleased that the baby's room is mostly put together (I'll have to take pictures at some point), and we're now working on being emotionally prepared for parenthood. Ha. Like that'll ever happen.

I'm so excited!!! I can't believe it's so close. This is one of the few events that could make me wish I was still in the States! ;)

Becca, I am so excited for you. Holding that baby for the first time is...there is just nothing like it. Oh man, just talking about it is giving me that itch to wanting another one. Good luck!

I'm jealous you got a Britax Roundabout. I want one of those so bad.
