Pics of Rachel's completed room

pink, pink, and more pink!!!
The child had more clothes than either of us. I'm a little afraid she'll skip her newborn size and go straight to 0-3 months. She doesn't have very many newborn outfits and I left the tags on most of them so they can be exchanged for a bigger size if necessary. I have washed all the 0-3 months size. Now, I need to buy another pack of hangers!!!!!

32 weeks 3 days

It's hard to identify anything in the first picture but you can see Rachel's face in the second one. You can see one of her eyes, her nose, mouth, and a chubby cheek. Yes, she is chubby. She weighs 4lbs 14 oz at 32 weeks 2 days. She is in the 64%. My child is above average already!!!!!! Her head is facing down now. I swear I felt her flip all the way around last Friday. It was the strangest feeling and sight.
I really think the picture of her face is amazing. Greg and I both think it is the best ultrasound pic we have. They wanted to do another ultrasound to be sure she is growing b/c of my blood pressure. Let's just say she IS growing. After an excellent doctor's appt, Greg and I grabbed lunch and went to a Durham Bulls baseball game. With temps in the 80's and low humidity, it was a perfect night for a baseball game. I have been lucky that every time I have done something outside lately it has been much cooler than expected. This has not been a typical NC summer!!!!!
I spend most of my days, visiting friends, going out to lunch, organizing something in the house, or trying to think of what else to do to get ready for the princess. Life is wonderful! At first, I dreaded being pregnant in the summer, but now I wouldn't want it any other way. I am so thankful that I do not have to get up and go to work and I can prop my feet up when I need to. My friend that is due 3 days before me totally agrees. Most teachers want to have their baby in April or May so they have the entire summer to spend with the baby. That would be ideal but I now have a newfound respect for people that come to work in their 8th and 9th month of pregnancy.
I go back to the doctor on July 23rd. The appts are not very exciting......blood pressure check, weight check, and out in 15 minutes. I am so glad I had an ultrasound on Wednesday so I could see her again. I know she'll be here for me to hold before I know it!
