Baby Shower!

I finally had my baby shower this past Saturday, and things went pretty well overall. It started at 2, and only a handful of people were there at that time, but by 2:30 we had a large crowd. I was very happy with how the decorations turned out, I thought it was different than most showers I've been to, and that is what I was going for.I was very pleased with the cake that we got. It turned out beautifully! We got a local lady to make our cake, her recipe just tastes so much better than what you can buy out of a store. She also did our wedding cake, so I knew it would taste good, but I was a little concerned what the picture on the cake would look like. Turns out she's pretty good at that too.I got tons of clothes, which is of course a good thing, but I was hoping to get a few more packages of diapers. I got only 2 packages of newborn diapers, which may due me a little over a week. I got a few other packages that are different sizes, but I will have to buy more newborn sizes, but every little bit helps. :)We had a lot of good food to eat as well, my mother-in-law got some of her family to bring a dish of food, and David and I bought chicken tenders for the main course. I just didn't want to have finger foods if I could help it. I know that I don't really like them, so I didn't want to feed something I wouldn't want to everyone else.

It was a good day, but I sure was tired afterward.

Getting Nervous

Only 9 weeks left! It's so close, yet so far. I have to admit, the thought of child birth is making me very nervous at this point. Up until now I have just kinda pushed it out of my head because it was 'so far away'. Now, I feel like it's almost upon me and I have to face it...whether I'm ready or not. I won't go into the details of exactly what I'm afraid of, I'm sure most of you know what happens during that time anyway, but it seems soooo scary. I've started reading the things you may experience after..nobody told me about the after!! *shudders*

I'm sure it will all be fine in the end, I know it's a little scary, especially for a first timer, but it's worth it. I just saw a picture on facebook of one of my friends who had a baby last night. I of course, started to cry. All I think of is, "What will Jacob be like?" I want to hold him in my arms and count every little finger and toe, kiss his forehead and just stare at him in amazement! I can't take much more, why isn't it August yet?!

One more thing to look forward to..or my baby shower this Saturday. I guess you are scratching your head wondering why wouldn't you look forward to that? Well, I am a person of a very nervous disposition. lol I hate being in front of a crowd, and since it is MY baby shower everyone will be focusing their attention on me at some point. If only I could melt into the background and just have all of those gifts without anyone making a fuss. That would be a perfect world to me. :) I suppose I can handle a couple of hours of it, after all I want those baby gifts!
