bigger and bigger...

My belly keeps growing and every time we take a new picture, I'm shocked by how much it grows in such a short time! It seems like it grew so gradually for so long, and now it's crazy big! Here's the latest shot...


t minus 6 weeks

I'm 34 weeks this week. It's crazy to think that my pregnancy is winding down, and soon our little man will be here. Now that Easter has come and gone (it was AMAZING by the way, I was just too exhausted to post!), we can finish prepping for Micah. Hopefully his room will be finished soon, and then after our last shower next week, we'll finish buying the things that are necessities. We already have a lot of non-necessities :)

He has clothes, wipes, and diapers, so we're doing well on the absolutes :)

Today, the confirmation of my pre-registration came...that was pretty weird. Our very good friends had their baby this week, and we've been tracking with them the whole time (6 weeks behind of course!) and now the next milestone for us to hit after them is just birth! That alone has been sending me spinning this week. I can't believe he's almost here! I can't wait to hold him!

*People have been wondering why I didn't register for diapers...and the reason is that we have NO idea which brand will fit him best, or if he'll have sensitive skin, or if his skin just won't want to tolerate a specific brand. We've been given a couple of different kinds (and I did register for one box), so we'll try them all and then decide which ones we want to go with. I would just hate to register for a ton of diapers in a particular brand and then be stuck with them if the baby has a reaction to them or something.


it's time...

...to set up at the OC Fairgrounds for Easter weekend. This is my fourth Easter on staff and every year it gets easier. It's always a ton of work, but ALWAYS 100% worth it. It's the craziest time of the year, but it's also my favorite time! I was wondering how on earth I could manage this large of an event at 8.5 mos., but it honestly hasn't been that bad...we have a great team that is super supportive which is awesome! This afternoon/evening is our BIG set-up night. We're praying for no rain on our tents...we'd rather not have soggy carpet for our babies!!

I can't wait to have a giant tent full of preschoolers worshiping together!
