Three more days until Brooke’s due date! Rock on! The time has gone by so quickly that it is hard to believe that Rebecca could go into labor at any minute.
My pregnancy with Brooke was so wonderfully easy. I was never sick. I wasn’t tired. I felt great!
Dallas and I got in a car accident. We were driving from Ogden to Orem in a snowstorm and slipped on the freeway. Luckily our car just had a little bumper damage and we were fine. (Well, I did break a nail, but I guess in the grand scheme of things that’s not too bad.) I was nervous about the wreck because I was pregnant, but Brooke appeared not to have been harmed by the wreck either. Thank goodness!
It’s really hard to tie a straight bow on your own clothes so I had to teach Dallas how to tie one for me. He proved himself an able student and his first bow was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen:
I was lucky enough to have three baby showers. The first one was thrown for me by the teachers I worked with. They were so kind and generous:
My second shower was thrown for me by my mother-in-law. We got some more great stuff:
My third shower was thrown for me by my family. Laurie made an adorable diaper cake:
Abe and Klarissa and my siblings acquired an old dresser and repainted it for the baby:
The inside of all the drawers held a surprise:
Everyone who helped paint the dresser signed it and made their handprints in the shape of a heart. I loved it.
I think we’re ready to have a baby!
