The day has come

This has to have been the easiest pregnancy known to man. No sickness, no heartburn, no health issues whatsoever! As the months have come and gone, Chris and I have agreed that he could just stay where he is as long as he wants because he is so easy to take care of right now. Mothers who know better have told us that the day will come when I  just cannot wait a minute longer for him to make his entrance.

That day has come. It was this past Saturday when I was woken at about 3am by extreme discomfort. It seems that little man has decided he is ready to come, but he is trying to climb up and out the top. Ok, I know that is just how it FEELS, but that is all I can envision. Well, it is either that or he is destined to be a swimmer and he is practicing pushing off the edge of the pool as hard as he can. Since Saturday, he has made several of the same attempts and I am officially past the stage of wanting him to stay put. He is welcome to come at any time.

Just a couple of weekends ago, Chris' aunt Jeanette and sister, Kellie, threw us an amazing shower at Jeanette's home. It was a couple's shower so Chris got to take part in the opening of many, many, many presents! The majority of the family are Oregon State Beavers so, it was only natural that baby Roberts be suited up with OSU jerseys, socks, pajamas, and his own OSU themed orange and black stroller. One of his soon-to-be favorites is an OSU jersey with Aunt Kellie's softball number. It even came autographed!

The dual shower

If you can't tell, I'm not really on top of this blog posting thing yet. Everything seems to make it on here after the fact (WAY after the fact). Case in point: the amazing shower that Gramma Cupcake threw back in September for Peanut Roberts and Peanut Buxton (this is how she refers to the upcoming grandbabies - ours and my brother and his wife's little girl - since they looked like peanuts in their ultrasound photos).

The shower was a blast! Almost every guest color coded their gifts - blue for me and pink for my sister-in-law. Many guests even coordinated their gifts to match. When Peanut Roberts received the adorable leather booties, his cousin received adorable little leather shoes to match! We will have quite a few coordinating outfits for their first photo shoot. How exciting!

The swing

Auntie Brigid gave us this great swing for baby Roberts at the shower that Gramma Cupcake threw in Reno. Auntie Lindsey was nice enough to drive it all the way to Camas for us AND put it together! Daddy helped with the very last touch (putting the mobile on) and Mona helped us test the swing. Now, we just need the baby!

32 1/2 weeks

I'm a little slow to post since we are almost at 35 weeks now, but here is an update on how the buddah belly is coming along (funny tank compliments of Auntie Lindsey)

Little by little

The nursery is coming along nicely! Thanks to an amazing baby shower (pictures and details to follow in another post) and my own personal decorator (my mom) coming to town, the nursery is just about ready to host our little man.

We collected baby photos of our parents, grandparents, even a couple great-grandparents and framed them. It is so much fun to see what everyone looked like and to share with our guests who come to visit.

Some of our favorite baby shower gifts have found a nice home up on the ledge where they can be appreciated until he is big enough to use them.
