*Waddle Waddle, Shuffle Shuffle* Let's do the 9 month dance!

Seriously, I'm gonna copyright that because that should be the name of a song or something... whatever. Sooo, we're officially back in NoVa. And the house has officially erupted into mass chaos. Baby gifts everywhere, total madness, I tell you. It's wonderful, don't get me wrong, I just have to sort through all of the stuff, and find a home for it. I also have to see what I don't have that I need and what I do have that I don't need.
Yes, I still think the baby dropped. Given the increase in potty breaks, and the soreness down low, plus the unmistakeable downward shift of my tummy, I really don't think there's any doubt. I called my doctor yesterday because the pain.was.too.much. She said it was probably just b/c the baby dropped, and if it wasn't contraction-like (it wasn't), then the baby was probably kicking new places, and pressing on new nerves. Thankfully, after a long night of wonderful, restful sleep (which hadn't happened in, oh... 5 days?) I woke up feeling glorious. So much so that I spent the day in Babies-R-Us returning and exchanging a few duplicates we got this weekend.

Oh yeah! The weekend!!! Y'all probably want to hear all about that. Saturday was the shower my family had for us. My aunt hosted it, and all my cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles all showed up. It was great. If you click here then you can see some of our loot! :) Granted, I couldn't take pictures of everything... which, there are a few things I'll have to take pictures of to show y'all some of the awesome blankets and clothes we got... but for now, there ya go!

Sunday, my mom's Red Hat Ladies threw another shower for me, and it was awesome! The ladies are a hoot... and we had so much fun visiting. I got a lot of nice things at the shower, and I'm so grateful for such wonderful people!!! Mom even got a few things for "grandma's house" :) Which is nice... I won't have to take a huge haul there. :) All in all, it was a great weekend. Now, I just have to go unpack! :)

How exciting and special that you were able to have two showers!!! How fun to have your little guy spoiled by people that love you (and your Mom).
