24 Weeks, Hormones, And Bloggy Friend Love

24 weeks...


This picture was taken with Michaels phone because for some reason our camera has decided to be a pain in the you-know-what the last few months. Whenever we turn it on it says the memory is full, even though it isn't. It takes turning it on and off several times and sometimes pulling the battery or memory card out and replacing it for it to work. I didn't feel like dealing with that, as my patience these days has been really limited. Therefore, here we have a bad quality picture, but a picture nonetheless!

Other than my ever-growing belly, not a whole lot has been going on. My sister and friend are planning me a baby shower, which I am thankful for! I really don't understand people who think that it's greedy to have a shower. Yes, we could buy everything ourselves. It's not about asking for gifts! It's about celebrating our baby with family and friends! In fact, I don't even make a big deal out of my own birthday because I feel awkward getting attention. This, on the other hand, is our first baby. I feel that it is worth celebrating! I need to learn not to be so sensitive but I also wish that people would stop being dumb-dumbs.

Sheesh. My hormones have been on overdrive this week. Please excuse me!

A couple days this week were in particular difficult, but one thing that helped cheer me up was having a Skype conversation with my bloggy friend, Neely! I felt like I already knew her from reading her blog so much. Thanks again, Neely!

There are so many of you guys that I would love to meet in person! It's amazing the friendships you can make through the internet!

Oh, and Tara over at Fabulous But Evil is having a really awesome giveaway!  I really want to win it so that after I get my maternity pictures done, I can take one of those pictures and turn it into a canvas print! I think that would look really good in the nursery!

Are people really givingyou an attitude for having a baby shower? WOW.

Don't listen to them! People want to give gifts at weddings and when new babies come into the world. We LIKE it. And if you don't register, then people are just going to buy you random stuff anyway :) ENJOY it!!!

It's not greedy at all to have a baby shower?! Whoever in the world would think that! grr. Have a wonderful weekend, momma :) You look fantastic!

Oh my gosh, having a shower is definitely not greedy! I think the only people saying that are the ones without kids and no idea what it's like.

(Of course, I don't have kids, but I definitely do think it's an event worth celebrating)

I need to download Skype.

You need to get a new camera before baby gets here. :)

You're looking great! I dont understand people thinking showers are greedy either. Mine is used as a good excuse to try to get all my friends and family together. It might be the only time some of them get to see me pregnant at all.

Love your belly shot! I hope I'm looking like that in six weeks!

Sweet, sweet. Congrats. I loved the dumb dumbs comment. Celebrate and forget those who complain. I attend showers because I WANT to be a part of the excitement and that includes the fun of buying a gift.

I'm with you, I hate having attention on me. It's not about recieving gifts, it's about spending time with your loved ones and sharing in the excitement of becoming a first time mom! Actually becoming a mom at any point whether it's your 1st, or 4th should be celebrated some how :)

By the way, You. Are. Adorable! You are caring so well! I'm jealous.

Buying things for your precious baby girl makes ME happy! I don't think a shower is a greedy thing at all. Just don't invite the "dumb dumbs". They will be missing out on the fun. :)
