1) What's the weather like today where you are? Thunderstorms. Looks like that is the forecast for the rest of the week, too! Blech!

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? Not planning to have one (this is kid #2 for us, and same season as kid #1). If work insists on a shower, I will request a diaper/wipes thing. But it's totally not necessary! The only other stuff we need are the biggies- carseat, crib, breast pump.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? DTD.. does that count? ROFL

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Sorting clothes here too! Also need to get a crib, carseat, and breastpump, but I don't think any of those will be this month.

5) Share a random thought with us! Today at daycare is "Dress Like a Superhero Day". DD (3.5) was so excited! I sent her with a "magic wand"- that's about all we had. Can't wait to hear her version of what they did today!

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic? This is from 28w. All the pics thus far are in my September Space, so you can see the progression! (Link in siggy)

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Sunny and it should be warm (it's only 8 here so there's plenty of time for it to warm up). I'm guessing high 70s...Correction: I was wrong, it's currently 85 and it should get a little warmer. Tomorrow it will be in the 90s.

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? I'm having a combination birthday party/sprinkle on my actual birthday, July 31. I am honestly hoping we get some gift cards so we can get some of these last minute things. I don't expect anyone to shell out the money for the pnp or our travel system (which are the last big things we need) but we'll honestly appreciate anything. I'm hoping to get my IPAD too.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? We went to Urgent Care, lol. It was for Brandon and he's ok but we wanted to make sure there was nothing major wrong with him. Other than that I made some delicious food and we spent some family time together. He loved his gifts.

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Picking a date for the Maternity Tea & Tour and washing the newborn clothes.

5) Share a random thought with us! I have an OB appt. tomorrow so my dad is coming in to town to stay for a few days and watch Brandon.

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic?

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Icky! Cool, overcast and we're getting rain this afternoon/tonight...which seems to be what the forecast for the whole week is.

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? Nope, wish I were Lol I'm starting to realize just how much we need but around here it's pretty much a no-no to have one after the first baby

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? Nope, dh got to do whatever he wanted and he wanted to go spend the day with some friends so he did and it was really icky out so I just decided to stay home with the kids.

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Well, I just bought fabric for bedding today and I ordered the crib and mattress last week (up to 2 weeks for shipping though), so I guess it'll be sewing the bedding and putting the crib up. We have literally done nothing but buy the coming home outfit and now the bed/bedding. I am thinking at around 32 weeks I'll feel more of a need to get my butt in gear Lol At that point I'll start washing clothes and the car seat cover. I want to wait until the last possible minute to install the car seat though because I think we'll have to turn DS1 forward facing if I'm right about how they'll fit and he's only 18 months right now.

5) Share a random thought with us! Probably covered it in that last question Lol

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic? I've been awful about taking regular belly pictures, hopefully I'll get one this week

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Awesome! Warm and sunny, no wind today! We already played outside for about an hour.

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get?I don't know, this is #2 so we don't really need a lot. A double stroller is about all we really need. I am going to use cloth more with this one, now that I have the hang of it. We could use some more CD, but no one really buys those for a baby shower. We will probably do one after the baby comes if we do one at all.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend?Not really. We hung out at home. DH watched the US Open, we went swimming, I made him dinner and desert.

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list?Actually, it has nothing to do with baby, but getting our spare bedroom ready for Kelly. I am an Arbonne consultant, so the closet is filled with my Arbonne stuff. I am going to have a big sale and try to get rid of as much of the product I have accumulated over time. Once the closet is cleaned out, we need to have a garage sale so we can get rid of a bunch of other stuff in storage and so we can get $$ to buy Kelly a new bed.
5) Share a random thought with us!

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic?Really sad, I haven't even taken one belly pic yet! We have been meaning to, but just haven't. Maybe I'll go take one and post it.

1) What's the weather like today where you are? It's supposed to get up to 86 and be sunny.

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? I am having an After Baby Shower mid September. I'm most hoping to get useful and cute clothing and diapers. I have pretty much everything else.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? MIL and the boys and I took DH to lunch, but we didn't have any presents for him this year. Well, Jacob made this cute little tootsie roll package for him at church last week, but we forgot it at home, so he doesn't get it for a while. (and I have to find it again). :roll:

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? find and order a swing and bouncer. Then locate our beside co-sleeper and rearrange furniture to make it fit.

5) Share a random thought with us! That bacon smells REALLY yummy. Thanks, Uncle Jim. Lol

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic?

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Hot, humid, sunny

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? Yes- July 16th. I'm hoping to get anything off my registry- NOT clothes!

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? DH took DD on a daddy/daughter date to get doughnuts. DD made him a card, and he got to sleep in.

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Make more meals to freeze. Not buying anything else baby-related until after my shower.

5) Share a random thought with us! Ummm... went shopping today with a friend to get a dress for a wedding we're going to this weekend. Not so easy to find something when you're 7 months pregnant! Or at least, something that doesn't make you look like you're wearing a circus tent.

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic? Okay this is a horrible pic... had a hard time getting the mirror and my phone to cooperate, but the last one DH took was 18 weeks, so I'm pretty behind. This is today, 29 weeks, 5 days. And apparently I really need to dust that mirror.

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Early 80's - sunny

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? It's being planned for me, it's supposed to be a surprise but I'm thinking some time in late July. (July 23rd, LOL) I'm registered at Walmart and I'm really hoping to get only things I've registered for.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? Not really. I cooked dinner, He had to work till 5 and had a quick turnaround today (he started at 4:00am) so we didn't do much.

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Everything! LOL - We still have to organize the bedroom to prep for her, I was hoping to wait to see what I got at the shower (I know they are getting the crib) to set everything up, but we have so much to do.

5) Share a random thought with us! - Today is our 1 year anniversary, we're going out to dinner.

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic? - I have to take more belly pics, I'll post one soon.

1) What's the weather like today where you are? Cloudy and cool - even the weatherman is now calling this 'June-uary'

2) Are you having a baby shower? If so, when will it be, and what are you most hoping to get? I think so, my MIL said she wants to host one for me, so I'm hoping it comes together! I am really hoping for a swing and a few more cloth diapers.

3) Did you do anything special for Father's Day this weekend? Yes! DH slept in, then SIL, MIL and I did a group breakfast for all the Dads. Then we went to a huge brewing festival with some friends that all have young kids too, so we made it into a Father's Day event. Smile

4) What's next on your getting-ready-for-baby to-do list? Start stocking up the freezer, pass my three hour glucose test (ha!) and finish up the nursery. We still need annoying things like a lamp, blinds and a valance. Finally ordered the cloth diaper detergent too, so I need to wash the new diapers 5 or 6 times.

5) Share a random thought with us! Let's see- my family reunion is this weekend, so it will be so fun to see all my cousins again! In the past 2 years, my generation of cousins has had 6 new babies, bringing the great-grandbaby total to 14! Can't wait to get a pic of all of us together!

6) Bonus! Latest belly pic? Ok, no judging - here is my most recent, taken yesterday at the beer festival. So, let's just ignore the background, shall we? My best friend from high school is the cute preggo with me, she's due next week, and they are having a little girl named KATIE! I am SO EXCITED!! That's her DH with us, he was one of the Dads that was partaking in the festivities - lol!

She's due next week!?! Gosh, the furthest I've gotten is almost 37 weeks and by that point I just look miserable! You both look great! And no shame in going and having fun, there's a music festival coming soon that I really want to go to even though it pretty much is one big beer bash, still fun even when you aren't drinking Smile

I know! I sent her an email this morning telling her I don't think I changed out of sweatpants after 38 weeks last time, much less attend a beer festival on my feet all day!

We had a great time - there was a 'root beer garden' for the kids, so we hung out there! Smile
