The fatigue has set in! I had a baby shower over the weekend and couldn't even open all the presents myself because I got so out of breath (and the carpal tunnel didn't help)! And of course, I entered my 3rd trimester of pregnancy in one of the hottest summers on record. Our house could literally house penguins, Eskimos and Polar Bears - plus we no longer have to use the freezer on our refrigerator to house our frozen foods. :) Throw in a few restless nights, tossing/turning and frequent bathroom breaks and I think this must be God's way of preparing you for fatigue and lack of sleep once the baby arrives.
I am late in uploading pictures from some of my baby showers so below are some shower pictures. Our first one was back in May and I was barely showing! I had no idea what I would like 3 months later!
Our 1st shower was hosted by Robbie & Heather Beal. It was held at one of our favorite places, Boxwood Bistro.
Some of Josh's mom's friends hosted a "Grandmother & Mom-To Be" Shower so we both got presents! As you can tell from the photo, it sometimes is not always clear to me what certain objects are!
Some wonderful Republican Women hosted a shower for me at Cheekwood in Nashville. As you can imagine, I received lots of elephants!
My sister Nancy hosted a family shower at her house for us and we all enjoyed getting to spend more time with my new niece Naomi! She is really adjusting well!
My girlfriends hosted a shower for me at the Franklin home of dear friends Dr. Ken & Linda Moore.
Isn't this the cutest sign ever?!
