Last week my mom and sister (along with my aunts and friends) threw me the most perfect, beautiful, baby shower brunch. It was way beyond what I expected, but I shouldn’t have been so surprised because any party my sister plans is always perfect. It was amazing to have good friends and a lot of family there, I did miss my Utah family but they sent me the sweetest gift to help prepare for Baby Norton.
Speaking of which, we still haven’t decided on a name for her! I think we might end up being those people that leave the hospital with a nameless baby. I told TJ the other day that I have been having nightmares about being the only one who doesn’t have a clue how to take care of her and that she doesn’t like me. I don’t believe the second part, but I do feel totally clueless about how to take care of a baby. Does anyone else ever feel like that? Right now she really, really likes to move around when I’m trying to sleep, and is having a great time sticking something under my ribs, not the most comfortable in the world for me but I’m glad she’s enjoying herself.
I have a lot of conflicting emotions about birth and bringing a baby home but I am so excited to meet our little girl! Everyone keeps telling me to enjoy right now because it’s an amazing place to be and I really am, but how can you help wondering and being excited when its only 9 weeks away? I am planning a little day trip to Mt Hood for me and TJ this weekend to just get away and spend some time together, I can’t wait to get out an see some of the beautiful fall colors in the Mountains! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
