{baby jake} 31 weeks!

Holy cow! 31 weeks! 

Time has been flying by and now seems to be dragging... but its a good thing since I still have yet to do anything to the nursery since painting.  We finally got a dresser yesterday and we are working on the crib.  We drove all the way to Ikea last night to get one and they have had to send all their cribs back to the factory to get some kind of safety label put on all the boxes.  Fun times.

Baby Jaker (as Madi calls him) is growing strong and healthy! We recently had some 3D/4D ultrasound pictures done and it was precious to see him.  I can't wait to hold him in my arms! Check out this picture... as soon as the ultrasound technician turned on the machine, his first look was a smile for his mommy and daddy.  

Isn't he precious? And yes, his nose is looking a little squished in this picture, but its just because it was sticking out of the frame a little bit.   

So anyway, this pregnancy is going well.  No swelling, diabetes, or any other issues.  I don't feel like I am HUGE yet, but I know thats coming.  Of course, not having a giant tumor this pregnancy probably helps (more on that in another post...) 

Maternity clothes are starting to get tight... and baby Jake is riding low, so that makes shirts quite difficult when they don't want to cover the bottom of the belly. :)

Madi is so excited to meet Jake.  She talks to him all day long including giving him hugs and kisses constantly.  Every doctor appointment she asks if its the day he's going to come out, and is slightly disappointed when I let her know its not time yet.  Hopefully this excitement continues once he is born and demanding a lot of my attention.  I think she is going to be a big helper though. 

We are so blessed and cannot wait for this little miracle to join our family!

much love,
