Work Baby Shower

On Monday the girls at work had a shower for us. It was such a surprise and so wonderful! They gave us so many things that we will need when the baby gets here - including our carseat! Yay! Thank you so much!

I painted this today, it goes with the baby's crib bedding. It should look really cute together. More pictures later when I get it all put together.

My Fetus has a Big Head

Lola and I went to my ultrasound appointment today and everything still looks good. He still has a big head and is generally still a big baby, but he is healthy!

Profile picture.

"Weeeeee wish to welcome you to Munchkin Land!"
(that face reminds me of the Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz.)

I like this one the best. It's hard to tell if it's his tongue or bottom lip sticking out. He is so cute!
Also, not that this is vitally important or that anyone really cares, but I found some different crib bedding than the one I posted before. It is SO adorable and just happens to be on sale, so I am going to order it this week. I will post a pic when I get it. I had a baby shower this weekend that was so nice, we were given many useful things. Lola got some presents too, which she loved.
My diabetes is under control and the doctor seemed happy with my blood sugars this morning. In general my only complaints are: right hip pain that shoots down to my toes, lack of room to breathe, and wishing I could eat cookies and ice cream all day. (which I don't.) I am barely swollen in my ankles at all! With Lola, I was already hugely swollen and had high blood pressure at this point. I am 100% sure it has everything to do with my job and all the wonderful girls I work with. They totally go easy on me and help me take care of my patients. I love my job and I love my co-workers.
That's all for now. Hope you like the pics!

Happy Valentine's!

Lola had a class party yesterday. Above is she and 2 of her friends, below is a group shot of her class. You would not believe how full their treat sacks were - cookies, cupcakes, candy, etc..... After just being in the classroom for 30 minutes yesterday, I don't know how her teacher or any of the teachers do it. Especially on party days when the kids are pumped full of junk food. I know now why God made me a nurse and not a teacher. Please don't get me wrong, I love kids. I had thought about teaching preschool after the baby is born, so that I could have the same schedule as the kids and make some extra money.....but I like my time at work with other adults. I'll stick with nursing for now, thank you. I really do have all the respect in the world for Lola's teacher, Mrs. Myrna. She is like the "2-year old Whisperer!"

Here are some pics in her Valentine's getup, compliments of Aunt Greta. Thanks Aunt Greta!
