Prego Friends and a Baby Shower

So yesterday I threw a baby shower at church for my BFF April, her hubby Jeremy, and unborn baby London. It was fun!! I'm no event planner, but I did my best to make it a fun day for everyone, especially them. There was lots of yummy food, a few entertaining games (picture 3 soon-to-be dads and baby bottles filled with tea), and lots of gifts. April deserves the best - she's gonna be such a good mama to little London. Enjoy a few pictures from the day while I continue recovering from the weekend excitement while laying on the couch!

And in case you haven't seen your share of bellies today, here ya go! The TFC pregos....April with London at 35 weeks, Victoria with Micah at 26 weeks, and Me with Sprout at 18.5 weeks.

Check out the Classroom!

So my email/blog buddy Merritt suggested that I post pictures of my classroom, so I decided that would be fun. Apparently my life is so boring that I have nothing else to write about. Actually I have a lot to write, but just not the energy. So instead look at my new classroom - I really love it! I happened upon this room because of the death of my coworker and great friend Susan (Mama Susan as we called her). It was super hard to walk in every day at first, but it gets easier every day. I'm not sure how I feel about it getting doesn't feel right for it to be "normal" for her to not be there. But I guess that is the way it always is with a loss. I would teach in a 4 ft. by 4 ft. room to have her back.....but I'm thankful for the extra space and especially for the in-room bathroom.

Baby Survey

I'm a really bad blogger. I'm going to try to work on that. I only have like 2 or 3 readers, so at least I'm not disappointing too many people. While you wait for me to have something interesting to say, here's a survey about baby Sprout that I stole from Merritt. The questions - not the answers.

How far along?
17 weeks and 4 days
How much weight gain? 4-5 pounds as of this morning - but I chalk that up to my MIL's cooking this weekend!
Is your bellybutton in? yes, but not much else is "in"
Wearing maternity clothes? the 2 articles that I have....can't find any that fit right quite yet
Cravings or aversions? no chicken, no way
Signs and symptoms? horrible back pain....think it might be my sciatic nerve already.....oh, and heartburn, restless legs, sore gums, headaches, and stuffy nose!
Feeling baby move? Not yet....maybe one little jab last night but I'm not terribly convinced....still waiting! I actually just felt it again....but Jonathan says it might just be the meatloaf, haha!
Pregnancy milestones? The 2nd trimester was fun.....made me worry a little less! Clothes not fitting was a milestone, but not really a fun one!
Upcoming appointments? October's the big one!
Name? Nope. Jonathan is super indecisive. We have it narrowed down to about 2 boy names and quite a few girl names. We'll start narrowing them down after the appointment!
