So, things have been going quite a bit better. About 2 weeks ago I shook the constant nausea, and now I just get it sporadically. I had been praying for 2 good days and 5 bad days for a long time- I think God finally thought I had paid my dues, ha!
Last week I had my first baby shower. It was an open house at my Aunt Donna's house and both sides of our families stopped in- Joey came too. We had a great time! Tomorrow I have a Pi Phi Shower at Carrie, Laura, and Em's place in Broad Ripple. So many of my pledge sisters are coming in from out of town- we are definitely going to make a night of it! Can't wait! Next Sunday, I have a shower with some of the Matis' friends at Vito's. It is so nice to receive such wonderful gifts for Little Joey. I'll be sure to take a few pics of Joey's new room and post them soon. His room is coming along quite well with the help of our mothers-thanks!! Lastly, I decided to post a few pics... my cousin, Brian Meek and his wife, Brooke Meek, had twins late last year. Their names are Finley and Parker, and they are the cutest. She brought Finley to the shower last weekend and she was a hit!! I have learned so much from Brooke- she really is an amazing mother. She always has the best baby tips and knows where to find the best baby deals. I'll be sure to pass them along once I get the swing of things. There is also an adorable pic of Sloane and a pic of my sister, Brooke, and I with our parents- obviously pre-birth for Brooke. What a fun thing to go through with my sister. It's been so fun hearing her stories. You definitely know how to paint a real picture, Brooke! Love you!!
I'm officially 30 weeks along!! I feel the baby doing jumpin' jacks all the time (my dad saw my belly move from across the room), and Lil Joey really seems to like it when I use the dental drill at work--I think he does flips!! I also took my last RCIA class last week. It's hard to believe we have had RCIA every Tuesday since August- but it has been very educational and Father Wilmoth did an amazing job!! I'll be sure to update you with some March events- we have quite a few things going on!! The countdown begins- 75 days left!!
