Happy Birthday Grandma!

Today's my mom's birthday, but considering the timing, I figured it more appropriate to call her Grandma. Alayna will be here soon enough, right? :o) Quick question though: if I put a bow on her head, can she be considered my mom's birthday gift? heehee....Love you mom!

Feels so weird to say - "My due date is NEXT WEEK." It still feels like just yesterday that Josh and I stood in the bathroom with our eyes bugged out as we read the word "PREGNANT" on the little stick...

38 weeks....and still counting...

We went to the doctor today...and she said I haven't started to dilate yet. She'll check me again at our next appointment on Oct 5, which is just 2 days before my due date...I'm just getting anxious because this 100+ degree heat and being 8 and a half months pregnant is ridiculous! I really can't stand the heat...

Anyways, we finally made a plan for my parents to make the drive out here NEXT weekend (the 3rd or 4th), unless of course they get a call from us before then saying "Leave now!" LOL...

We've just been making our other preparations around the house for our little girl to get here. I started doing her laundry last night and yup, there was 2 loads of just pink stuff! Also, someone needs to invent disposable baby socks. I have a hard time keeping track of Josh's & my socks - and now I've got to keep track of little bitty socks smaller than my pinky finger?!?! I think keeping Alayna barefoot is the way to go! :o) Wish me luck...or just buy Alayna some more socks to make my life easier when I lose them!!!

Prego Pics!

A couple of weeks ago Dina, one of my bestest friends, took some prego pics for us on the beach! Here's a little preview of some of the pics. More to be posted later. :o)

(And on another note, I'm 37 weeks and 5 days's almost time!)

Our Wedding Highlight Video!

It still makes me cry...

She's Almost Here!

We've been busy busy busy getting ready for Alayna's arrival!

Daddy painting her room...

Mommy made up her crib for her...

All set to go to Daddy's baseball games...

Is she in there yet?

Let's hope this cool swing works to help her sleep...

Baby Showers!

So Josh, Alayna & I have been spoiled with 2 baby showers! My coworkers had one for us at work, and then Noel had another one for us with friends and family. Both were a blast with fun times, beautiful decorations, and wonderful people. I'm positive that Alayna felt all the love surrounding her. Thanks again to everyone who came! Here are a few more pics from both showers:

Gotta show off that Alayna's gonna have the Trojans' spirit!

My surprises! My mom had told me she couldn't fly out here for my shower. She lied. :o) I figured it out though putting bits & pieces together of what people were saying. I still had no clue though that my Aunty Edna & Uncle Nigel were in town too! It meant a lot to me to have all of them here, especially since I don't get to see my own family that often.

All dressed up in my purple dress!

Noel & Leila made these diaper cakes themselves. How cute are they?

Alayna's gift from Papa Tom - he made her a bat rack for her room using those miniature bats! (Yes, I was wiping away my tears! )

And last but not least, a picture of Alayna's mommy, daddy, tia & cousin!
