8 months & baby shower!

I am now EIGHT months! Less than two months until the big day.

I feel great minus running of breath faster and feeling exhausted more often. It doesn't help that it's been a million degrees outside. I need to keep active though, I have a lot photo sessions booked through the end of August (in which I will be 36 weeks, whew)! 

Here was my latest sonogram!

Addison at 31 weeks, 4 days...cord is over her left eye
She was approx. 3lbs 13oz. and already has hair!! Those lips just get me, I think they're adorable. This is the last time I will see of her until she is here in my arms. Goodness I can't wait. Still, I'm going to try to enjoy my last eight weeks of pregnancy. There's no other time like it!

Moving on...last Sunday was...

My baby shower!

Date: July 23rd
Theme: Zebra
Colors: pink, white & black.

What a fun shower! Love your theme. And aren't those 3D ultrasounds awesome?!? We had one for Bennett and seriously, it looked exactly like him when he was born. It's crazy the details you can see now.

Jessica said...

Addison is precious! I love her sweet little face. Not much longer til she's in your arms! :)

Love the shower theme! Looks like you had a wonderful day with family and friends.

I love your theme! You are so cute pregnant! Love your outfit too! I am really hoping when I get pregnant that I can stay as fit as you! I can't believe you are already 8 months! I started following you, like a month or 2 before you announced you were pregnant! It's been so fun! To watch/read! :) Keep those belly pics coming!
