31 weeks

Whoa it's been a while since I've looked at or written on the blog.  Oops!  Things have been hectic to say the least- but all in a good way.  I had my baby shower back on April 28th.  It was absolutely wonderful!  I feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family!  Childbirth class was yesterday.  It was somewhat overwhelming but I'm ready to get this show moving!  The hospital seemed great and is only about 10 minutes from home.  I was actually born at that hospital almost 30 years ago.  I have 5 weeks left of school (WOOHOO) and then it's time to just wait for our little man to join us.
