MDO- FIRST day of School!

Kailey started MDO about 3 weeks ago... SHE LOVES IT!! We went to meet the teacher day and she wasn't too sure about it all, we met her two sweet teachers, the music teacher and the PE teacher. Yes, they actually go to music and PE in addition to regular "school." The first day went pretty well, she was sad when we left, but the teachers said she only cried for about a minute after we left and then she was fine! On day 2 she walked right in looked back at me and said "bye Mommy, see you after lunch." It was bittersweet, so glad she loves it, but a little sad that she loves it enough to just say bye:( They have a really tight schedule and do lots of fun things in class. She has already come home singing new songs and she loves to talk about her friends at school and what they do each day. One of my great friends sons is in Kailey's class so Kailey loves to talk about Ben and they sit by each other at lunch everyday. There are only 7 kids in her class and 2 teachers.

She goes twice a week, it has been really great to experience a little "freedom" for those few hours. I got my hair done one day, ran errands another and now that I go to the doctor weekly I go whenever she is in school. It will also be nice once baby arrives as it will give me some time with just baby. Kailey loves her school and I can't wait to see what wonderful things she learns this year!

This was her first project... They each made a collage so if they get sad at school they can look at all the people who love them!

Baby Shower...

My great friends threw me the MOST AMAZING baby shower...It was breathtaking. They did an amazing job and everything was so special and wonderful. They did a bird theme, the invitations had a bird nest on them, their were bird cages throughout the house, the table linens were gorgeous... various prints with a bird/nest theme, napkins with feathers, white chair covers, votive candles spread throughout, and take home nests with almond "eggs". The food was SUPER yummy too! Fruits, quiche, cake balls, salad, chicken salad puff pastries, pasta salad, key lime pie, a yummy cake, punch, tea, etc... YUMMY!

I was so blessed to have so many wonderful friends in attendance, it really means so much to us to have made such amazing friends in our short time here in Houston. We are truly blessed.

Baby girl and I received many nice gifts and we have been having fun playing with everything and getting things all ready for baby girl to arrive.

35 weeks

How your baby's growing:Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that she's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, she isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times she kicks should remain about the same. Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
