Wall Art...

Ok, so this week i decided that Jack's walls were a little too empty! So, i had this "Wall Art" designed for his room and i just LOVE it! It is the same Pottery Barn: Animals on Parade print that matches his bedding. Do you like it, what do YOU think??
I know, clearly i have way too much time on my hands:) Hurry up baby Jack!!!

The Biggest Teddy Bear EVER...

Uncle "Rick" surprised us this week with tons of gifts for baby Jack! It was like a mini baby shower!! I had to take a picture with Brendan next to this gift so ya'll could see how HUGE it was! This is the biggest teddy bear i have EVER seen... and i just know Jack is going to love it!! Thanks Rick - we love you!!

Now all we need to do is give the bear a name... any suggestions??

The BEST weekend ever...

WOW... talk about the best weekend ever! Jamey gave me an early baby gift on Friday night by surprising me with Diana (from Germany) & Jessica (from Omaha) flown in just for the baby shower!! OMG, i was in tears at the airport picking them up!! I am just amazed that they flew all this way for just a short weekend! And then the night just got even better with the surprises as ALL of my mother's sisters flew in from ALL over the US!! I even got to see my uncle Keith, cousins Megan and Kristen, and honorary aunt Dana, Brandy and Baby Chase!!

Saturday's shower was awesome... way more than i could have ever expected! Thank you, THANK YOU to ALL of you who helped put it together! Even baby jack got excited... so much so that we made a trip to the hospital at 11pm that night because i was having strong contractions 2 minutes apart for over an hour!! The doc said i am not ready yet (CRAP) ... i am only 1 centimeter dilated and 50% effaced! So i guess Baby Jack isn't quite ready to MOVE
