So here we are, at almost 32 weeks :) Im feeling pretty good...besides the usual backaches, leg cramps, heartburn, rolling like a beached whale out of bed, etc...
We finished up our last Birth Class last night. I thought they were actually kind of fun (and helpful of course)!

p.s. the little bulge in my shirt is just a cell phone hidden in there. in case ya were questioning...

Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.* Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.* Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1.We have the baby room ready for the baby. The diaper bag is packed, and all I do is look at and play with all the stuff, even though I've seen it all a million times... and get more and more anxious!
2.I have such a wonderful family...both Krishers and the Braatens.
3.I actually sometimes find relief in doing laundry. (but then let the last load sit in the dryer for about 2 whole days)
4.My toes look like little pigs in a blanket today.
5.One of the earliest memories I have is when our family (a long time ago) went out to the woods and had a picnic on a big flat rock up by the birch grove.
6.Our little guy usually has his foot up in my ribs (or something) and it bugs me. But then sometimes I wish it WAS there, just for a little reassurance when I can't feel him.
7. Logan says that I should be spending time with my loving husband, rather than doing this. hehe.

Is 5 enough?

Logan and Trevor just found the run-away chicken in the lot next door...and just herded her home. Weird. Now there are 5 again.

run away chicken

One of our chickens dug under the fence and ran away...so that makes only 4.

Baby Shower...

Friday night, Mary and Christy Toole had a very nice, very fun baby shower for me! There were lots of Missoula ladies there, along with Sandy & Betty, and Mom B! We played Guess the Baby Food by Taste, and Make A Baby Boy Name Out of Mine and Logans Names...and of just sat, talked and had cake! It was super fun!
And of course...we got lots of baby stuff...and now the nursery is full of cute clothes and goods :)
So, thanks to everyone who was there for a super fun evening! I can't wait for our little guy to meet everyone!

New Decorations...

Today Logan finished putting together the crib and the changing table! I love them...but they just look empty without a baby in them! That will change soon though...:)

Colleen Eoff and I met up at market downtown this morning, and looked at a few little shops...including WHIPPERSNAPPERS (my favorite childrens store)!! I somehow refrained from getting all the cuuute little cowboy outfits...but just could NOT pass up the cow. So now the cow sits on the crib...waiting for a little baby boy for a best friend!

28 week Appt...

Yesterday we had our 28 week appt! We of course had an ultrasound...and I cannot believe our little guy!! He's grown so much, (kinda big actually) and looks soo cute! We actually couldn't really see his face to much cause the placenta is in front of his face, but we just KNOW that he's cute :) He's head down so thats good...and we hope that he stays that way.
It was amazing to SEE him move, and FEEL him at the same time! The ultrasound tech kept sayin Yup...he's fiesty! because whenever she would poke at him, he'd just kick right back.
I haven't gained any weight since my last appt, but found out that Im anemic, and also need to go back for a 3 hr. glucose test right away on Monday. Im worried about that, but need to be the healthiest I can be for our baby. So...it's steak and spinach for me for right now. Eww.
We have a video, and after we get it over to DVD, I can't wait to post a picture...or even a little video of our sweet baby boy! :)
