38 weeks + 4 days=mood swings

This past weekend we got all "lovely-ed" up and went to hubby's work Christmas party. It was held at the Petroleum Club downtown where we had an amazing view from the 35th floor. We had a good time, but of course I was completely exhausted by 9 pm. All the yummy food and random blackout Bingo games really wore me out ;). Here's baby and I looking stuffed and ready for bed after the party.



Saturday we got to spend time with some good friends and watch a football game that I will not discuss any further. Soooooo on to Sunday...we both were feeling a little under the weather so we decided to miss church and rest.

Annnnd here's where the mood swings kick in...

Yesterday we went to my OB appt and I left teary-eyed and defeated. My doctor told me that I am still dilated only 1 cm. With just a few days left until baby's due date, it's hard to see the positive without seeing any progression. I cried in the Dr.'s office, I cried in the car, and I cried once we made it home. I've been praying that God will help me endure and wait for His timing. I am just so ready to meet our baby boy and selfishly want to have the old me back (no offense "Ry"..I can tell you are running out of room in there too).

Today was a new day though and we had a baby shower at Mr. Baker's work which left us feeling blessed once again.

A couple of my fav things from the shower...personalized cookies and a baby sized ping pong paddle!

  1. Hang in there! Courtney and I are so excited for that big day. The 23rd will be here before you know it (Can you tell that I am a little bias?)!
