Showers and more Showers!

Cohen's happy mother, Grammy, and Nana.

All three of the "great-grandmothers"

The ladies in my family are coppin' a feel of my belly!!

No, his name's not "Coher." My big belly is just covering up the rest of his name.

My beautiful hostesses at my church shower!

We had two showers this past weekend. On Sunday morning we had our church shower and that was my big one since that is where I work and where all my close friends are. It was really great. Cohen receieved a lot of goodies (of which we're still trying to find a place to put everything!) Then in the afternoon, Chad's aunts hosted a family shower for us. It was fun! And then in two weeks my sweet college friends are giving us another shower. I can't wait to see all of them and their babies! We are so blessed to have so many people in our lives who care about us.
So, I'm sure most of you have heard of the chubby bunny game. Well, at our family shower they decided to make me and both the grandmothers play... it was SO funny! We had to say Cohen's full name just like we would if we were mad at him. Poor Carla (Chad's mom), I never realized how small her mouth is. She got about two into it and she was about to die. As you can see by the captions below, she didn't make it very far. Then there was me and I have a huge mouth, but a seriously bad gagging reflex (as most anyone who has every been around when I brush my teeth know). And then there's my mother. Not only does she have a HUGE mouth, but is THE most competitive person I know. I could have told you who was going to win before we started. As you can see on the last caption, she has like a gazillion marshmallows in her mouth and she is still speaking his name in perfect diction.

Summer Happenings

So, it has been a while... I know! A lot has happened since the last time I posted, so I will just show you guys in pictures instead of writing about every detail.

My friend Macy had her baby, Meg. She is healthy and beautiful!

We went to Edmond, my hometown, on the 4th. My brother, mom, dad, and husband decided to create a plaid shorts club!

Me and my sis. We went and grilled out in the Target parking lot and watched the city fireworks show. I know it sounds wierd, but hundreds of people do it.

Later on that night still in the Target parking lot. These are our younger cousins...Giles, Lydia, and Grant!

Last week Chad painted the nursery.

The job completed. Now we just need to get some furniture, decorations, and a baby in there!

This is me 31 weeks pregnant right before we walked out the door for our first childbirthing class. Wow, was that an experience! Does it look like I will make it 2 more months?

Last weekend we went to San Antonio to visit cousins on the Lawson side of the family. We had a lot of fun playing games and hanging out in their GREAT backyard. Mexican Train anyone?

We also found time to fit in a pedicure (because Lord knows I can't reach my toenails right now!)

Baby Update: Cohen was measuring 3 1/2 weeks big at the last appointment. But everything else looks good. I won't say how much weight I've gained (because it's super embarressing) but let's just say I'm going to have to get on the diet wagon here in about 2 months if I'm going to fit in those skinny clothes again!
