31 Weeks and Growing

Today I'm 31 weeks pregnant. Crazy. I think the last few weeks are going to fly by. Are we ready for this baby?? Not exactly... we still don't have a great list of names, I haven't organized the baby clothes or bought diapers, and sometimes I wake up in the night panicking about what if the baby comes early and we're not ready! Hopefully we'll get our act together soon.

I can't decide if I hate these pictures or if I just need to accept that my belly is going to be even bigger in a few more weeks and I should just enjoy not being about-to-deliver huge yet. I'm thankful to be healthy again.

Today was Eli's first day in the church nursery now that he's officially 18 months old. I was SO worried he was going to freak out if we tried to leave, but after the first 10-15 minutes, Ben and I felt like we should go since he was doing so well and didn't seem to need us - he was playing so happily and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience for his first day - the nursery workers were all SO nice to him and it was a calm, comfortable place to be.

Eli seemed totally wiped out after church, but then he came home, ate lunch, and played in his crib instead of napping. Crazy child.

Tonight we had dinner at our next door neighbor's house - their kids were hilarious with Eli - very much in his face (in a very friendly way), which is hard for him since he really needs his personal space. But he warmed up by the end and had fun. They sent us home with cute maternity clothes and some Thomas trains and track to borrow because he was having so much fun with them! Seriously, I can't get over how nice they are - we feel very lucky to have welcoming and kind neighbors.

You look so cute, Sarah! I definitely know what it feels like to stretch out to your limit. You really don't look all that big now. And you probably still have plenty of time to get ready.

I can't believe Eli is already 18 months and going into nursery. Even though I only saw him when he was a newborn, I feel like I have seen him grow up through your blog. You do such a good job at updating it.

I'm with Wendy. You do NOT look 31 weeks. You'd feel so much better if you could just stand next to me right now :) At 15 weeks, I'm totally giving you a run for your belly money.
