30 Weeks!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a great time with all my family here. I hated to see them all go. I won't see my parents again until Burke is here. That makes me sad. I wish we all lived closer. My sister and her family will be here a couple days after Christmas, but for the most part it will just be Greg and I. It was great to have them for Thanksgiving and I am so thankful this year. When my dad said the prayer before our turkey dinner he prayed for Burke. I still get a lump in my throat right now thinking about it. While I pray for Burke every day, it was so wonderful to hear MY BABY being prayed for out loud by others. Huge tears welled up in my eyes, just as they are now. Thank you God for this baby. OK, I am getting too emotional, onto other things.

We saw Dr. P this week. Burke and I are doing awesome. I am having no blood pressure issues, my weight is slowly creeping up, but nothing too much, Burke is growing strong. I have to tell you about my nurse, Andrea. I have mentioned her many times. I should call her my friend, but I want you all to know that she is technically my nurse. Well, when Greg and I arrived she took us to our room and said she'd be right back. When she returned she had a bag FULL of clothes and diapers. Brand new clothes, many with the tags still on. They are all so cute! I have washed them and have them hanging in Burke's closet! She said her baby boy couldn't wear them and she wanted us to have them, as my blog touched her. Out of all the patients she sees every day she picked our baby Burke to get these clothes! Greg had big ole tears in his eyes when she walked out the door. Of course, I had tears too. Andrea, thank you so much! Burke will look great in his new clothes! We think the world of you!

So, this week I am tired. I have been going nonstop since last Wed. and I feel super tired. I have been having moments of panic where I feel like I must get EVERYTHING done for Burke. I have a lot of stuff bought, but nothing is truly functioning yet. This has me stressed. Today I went and bought bottles, wash clothes, a few toys, bassinet sheets, etc. I have done Christmas shopping, house decorating, tree decorating, lunch dates, etc. It has all been fun, but I am whipped by the time Greg gets home. Plus, I joined a book club and can't get into the book...which needs to be read by next Saturday. HELP!! Other than being tired I feel great though! I officially look pregnant as people have started to stop me and say "when are you due". I am sure I must beam from ear to ear as I am so thrilled! My OB wants me to do kick counts and so I have started doing that twice a day. Luckily, Burke goes to town and doesn't make me wait around too much. He already is such a good baby!

I don't know how this happened, but I did not get a picture of Greg or myself this Thanksgiving. Talk about being annoyed. I am the picture taker in my family and I forget to say "stop, take a picture of me"! This weekend we have the railroad Christmas party so I will try to get a picture of the proud parents to be!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love,

Alicia
