I have had some requests to post a belly picture since I haven't done so yet (this is for you Larah), so here you go. This is me at 31 1/2 weeks. I feel twice as big as I look in this picture. This little boy inside of me is taking up every inch he possibly can and I still have 8 weeks to go. We are certainly on the countdown. I have been getting things ready. The nursery is pretty much ready to go even though he will be in our room from the first little bit.

I have another ultrasound next week so you will get to see some more pictures of him later. We are just really excited to meet this little boy face to face. I hope that Ella will be able to handle the transition well. She loves babies and little kids and is really sensitive to their moods.

I babysat for a friend the other day and her son was upset when she left, so I was holding him and Ella came over and patted his back and gave him loves. She kept asking if he was sad and if he needed kisses better. It was really sweet. I think that she is going to make a great big sister.

Here is the start of my quilt that goes with the blessing outfit that I am making. I don't think you really need a blanket to go along with a blessing outfit, but this blanket is so beautiful I had to try and make it. It is actually easier (to me) than making the other items even though this is a little more intricate.
This is what I have done so far. I still have a lot of squares to make, but its getting there. I am about 1/5 of the way done. Luckily each square doesn't take too much time to make, so I should have it all done before the baby gets here. That's the goal anyway.

I had to show you a video of Ella's great dance moves. She loves to dance. Ella will ask to turn on the "husic" and dance-dance. She has a lot of fun!

I am so impressed, Kristen! It's going to be really cute. And the outfit is not girly at all, in spite of dumb Aaron's fears. Can't wait to see you guys again.
