Doctors Check up A **FaBuLOuS** Baby Shower in a Box AND a New HaiRcUT!

DOCTORS CHECK UP
Tuesday I had a doctor’s appointment. I was expecting to have the whole BIG check and the strep test but that will be in 2 weeks on the 16th. Everything is still going great. Hayden has FINALLY turned the right way, and is head down. When the doctor measured my belly I heard him say, "WOW,.... is getting big!" I asked, he is or I am? And thank goodness the doctor meant Hayden was getting big. (Even though I know I am getting huge as well.) My doctor then said, "ya, he is in the high 5's in weight now!" Holy freaking cow... the next time I go in Hayden is gonna be at least 6 lbs! Weird.... The doctor also said, "I think '08 is a very good time to have a baby." So sometime this month I will be a mommy... So crazy, he will be here so soon. I am so excited and TERRIFIED! I don't know if I'm ready. Hopefully my "mommy instincts" will kick in like everyone says.

BABY SHOWER IN A BOX
The day before Thanksgiving I received a package. It was HUGE! I was so excited to see that it was from California, cause that meant it was from my two good friends, Erin and Emily. So of course I tear into the box as fast as possible and I pull out the card that is attached to a piece of paper. The paper says that this is my "Baby Shower in a Box, California style." And then there were rules below it... the first one says that I have to open it with Cory, no exceptions! Are you kidding me! It was like 11 o'clock and Cory wasn't gonna be home for HOURS! So I decided I could possibly call him and then he could be "there" with me but just on the phone... but that attempt at bending the rules didn't work because Cory said I had to wait and he would tell on me if I opened it without him... DANG IT... So I waited.....and waited... FOREVER till he came home.
Some of the rest of the rules were, "grab a snack, because the card wasn't a snack." "Go potty first before opening it, so I don't need a break in between opening everything." "Get some Kleenex’s just in case." "Call them right after I open it." Erin and Emily are so cute and clever. It totally made my day. The box was STUFFED full of amazing baby things that were so thoughtful. There were a bunch of cute long-sleeved onesies with the little hand covers, cute little pants, the little sleeper/gowns that I love, A little Dreft spot treater pen, baby toys, CD with cute lullaby music, bottle cleaners and formula mixer with a temperature gauge, a cute little fuzzy hat that is so soft, a baby’s first Christmas ornament, and a beautiful bracelet that Erin made for me that spells out Hayden. There was so much stuff and I cannot express to them how much it meant to me that they would take all that time and thought and effort to put this "baby shower in a box" all together. I love them so much and can't wait to see them when my little guy is here.

WARNING: I did not get ready this day and I am a total vision to say the least... Sweats and a hoodie are some of my best friends these days... also Travis(my brother) took the pictures, thats why some are a little blurry and stuff...

I really did want to eat the card, because it as a sushi card!! Yummy, but don't worry... I didn't...







I was really excited about this cute, soft, fuzzy hat!

"Mommy's little monster" :)


They even decorated the inside of the box! What cute, creative girls

The bracelets Erin made me, I love them so much! They are so pretty.

Thank you so much Erin and Emily! I miss you guys so much. I can't wait to see you soon. I love you tons!

HAIRCUT
I had a haircut and color yesterday. I wanted to wait as long as possible before I had Hayden because after I have him I am not gonna have time for anything. I knew I wanted to go darker and something short and easy but I didn't really know what exactly. I'm watching Mandy (the girl who does my hair) put all this dark color in and some pretty dark brown red color and a little carmelyish blonde color. The color washes out and the only color that held was the caramel blondish color! It was such a shock to me because it wasn't what I expected and I haven't ever been this light. My hair has been so weird and different my entire pregnancy, the color, and thickness and everything changes all the time. Mandy said the last month of her pregnancy her hair went super blonde too instead of dark. And my good friend her hair went a blue and gray instead of whatever color she wanted. Pregnancy does weird things to your body... I am not going to miss being pregnant at all! Its cut pretty short and I have bangs now... It is so weird to look in the mirror because I am not use to it at all! Hopefully I will get use to it soon.

Here it is... not a super picture, but there ya go....

Aw you're welcome! We had so much fun putting it together. Babies R Us completely exhausted me... we were there for HOURS and kept getting distracted by shopping for our future babies.

I'm sure the card is better for you than actual sushi... mmm fiber!

I think Em would agree that putting together your *other* surprise in the box was the most fun I'd had in a long time. It seriously cracks me up everytime I think about it. You're lucky we place nice "pranks" on you... our previous roommate wasn't so lucky.

Your Welcome for the Box. We had a blast putting it together. It only made Erin long for a baby more and for me to just want to get married that much more. I'm so glad you had a blast opening it up. I will have to agree with Erin on the other present we gave you. We were laughing so much putting together the captions and taking the pictures. :-) I miss you and can't wait for Hayden to get here. You will be a great Mommy. Hayden is lucky to have you and Cory for parents.

p.s. like Erin said we were pretty brutal to our other roommate. haha have you heard those stories?

Camsie said...

That was the cutest present! It sounds like you got lots of great stuff. The special day is almost here! Im so excited for you, it's crazy but your instincts really do kick in like right away. Its awesome. And being pregnant isn't the greatest thing. But I do miss some things, like feeling the baby move. I think that was just awesome!

I really love your hair! I got your shower invitation today, so cute! I'm excited and hope I can come, but if I can't I might have to drop something off early or late, whichever comes first! And I don't think I ever responded to this before but I really do think we need to do lunch sometime okay? Maybe before you have the baby. ;)
