I've been reading quite a bit about how to get dogs ready for a baby to come into the home. We want to establish that this is another master coming into the house, not a toy or subordinate. I also read that dogs can sense when a new baby is coming. I believe it, Starky has been a lot more needy and clingy as of late. He especially loves snuggling up to Gabe when he gets home.
I'm unsure what those goofy faces are about, I guess I've given up on normal ones and hey it keeps things interesting in these belly pictures. Sorry about the flash as well... I just got a new phone and still don't know what I am doing with it.
Gabe's company has been so nice about this pregnancy. He has been able to take time off for several of my doctor's appointments and they threw me a wonderful baby shower over their lunch break this past Wednesday. I loved sitting down and eating with Gabe and most of his colleagues, I can tell how much he is appreciated by many people in his company and I am grateful. They also made fun of me for being born in Oklahoma. Oh well.
The diaper cake someone made was especially pretty, at first I thought it was an actual cake.
I love the look on Gabe's face in this picture. He is so excited and happy about our little boy.
Some days I still can't believe this is really happening, we are really going to have a baby! I still feel apprehensive about washing and putting away all of his little clothes, just in case. But, I do my best to shake those moments off and enjoy my naps while I can have them (yay for first baby) and feeling those little movements from inside of me, knowing there is a little boy we will get to meet soon.
