Amazing Weekend!

We certainly had a busy couple of days in good old E-town, Indiana. We spent Saturday at a picnic for the families of Concord High School class of '97 graduates. Ox Bow Park was a nice setting and it was - interesting- for lack of a better word, to see many classmates I hadn't seen in over ten years. Saturday evening was our actual class reunion held in South Bend at Coveleski stadium. We had a good turnout and a very nice event- lots of laughs making fun of ourselves and seeing who has changed the most, the least, who has the most kids, and who is doing what with their lives. I think everyone genuinely enjoyed themselves and the fireworks show at the end of the evening was a great addition.

Sunday, three of my dear friends- Erin Spencer, Michelle Byers and Britt Metzger- threw an absolutely amazing couple's shower for us and about 30 others at the beautiful lake home of Michelle's parents. The weather was gorgeous, the food superb, and we were showered with tons of amazing gifts for the baby. We received many things that we needed and will use daily- and lots of special extras as well! Thanks so much to Shell, Britt and Chom who worked to make the day wonderful and to all our friends and family for your generosity- Baby Erb is already beyond blessed to have you in his life!

With Grams:

What Great Hostesses!

Can you tell we're already proud parents?

HOLY COW!!! Where am I going to put all this stuff?

I'm starting Week 32 and still feeling okay. I do however, feel more tired and struggle with heartburn. (UGH.) The cankle swelling continues and was at it's worst after standing in heels for most of the weekend. Apparently, his movement will "peak" this week and begin to taper off a little as he's beginning to run out of room! He's now an average of 3 lbs, 14 oz and still around 16.5 inches long. He has eyebrows, eyelashes and a head full of hair! Here's a week-32 belly shot and just for laughs- my swollen ankles.

Erin- You're not going to believe this... but I went to Concord High too!!! A different part of the country, but the similarities are really, really starting to get freaky!

It looks like you had a great weekend and I absolutely love the top you wore to your reunion! So pretty!

Beautiful pictures and a fabulous shower. I loved having you home in E-town. You look wonderful in every way in spite of the cankles. All will return to normal...well at least your feet... as life will never be the same after the little bean arrives. I can't wait!
