The past two weekends have been a whirlwind of baby showers. I never thought my house would have this many baby items in it at one time! The first shower was thrown by Eric's mom, sister, and aunt, Clara, Amanda and Joanie. Our friends Shannon and Nathan came down for the weekend and brought baby Garrett. I can't believe he's 10 months old. I am due 4 days after his 1st birthday. We got Ninfa's take out Saturday night so I think we pleased them (no ninfa's in Dallas!). The shower was a hit with family from Corpus, friends from work and church, and Houston family all attending. We got a lot of nice things, including clothes, the bath tub, and enough money to go order the crib, which we did last Saturday.

The second shower was down in Santa Fe, hosted by Bailey, Trayce, Kendra, Kate, Kristal and Karen. I didn't get a picture of all the hostesses together, so here is one with Bailey and Mom. We had a great time at this one too, with friends from Dallas, work, church growing up and high school all attending. We got some great items including the diaper bag and diaper champ, the pack n play and our bedding from the hostesses. Justin and Ashley came down from Dallas for a visit and Eric and I had a great time with them as well. We took them to Lupe Tortilla's Saturday night and had some great fajitas. Besides that Eric and I have spent the past few weeks writing thank you cards, watching (and falling asleep to) the Astros games (one of which last Tuesday was in person via tickets from work--we left in the top of the 11th inning!) and organizing the nursery. Eric has been having rehearsals after school this week to get the kids ready for the last concert which is next Tuesday. Monday is our last week of 3 weeks of "Prepared Childbirth" classes at the hospital. We've actually enjoyed them, and learning about the different relaxation techniques.

Coming up we have a game night at our house next Friday with friends from church. Then on Saturday, Eric is going with the jazz band from church to play at a church in the 4th ward. I will be heading down to Santa Fe that day to have an early mother's day with mom and go to Hailee's 4th birthday party. On the 17th I'm going to the Astros game in the suite with everyone from work....woo hoo! The 18th I have a shower at work, which I'm looking forward to (and it's Eric's dad's birthday, as well as George Straits!), the 19th is Eric's band banquet and the next week is his last day of school. I can't believe how quickly this school year has passed. We are SO looking forward to Eric having the summer off with me and raising our infant. Then this fall we have my sister's wedding to look forward too.....lots of fun to come!!
