33 week

Seven weeks from today is my due date! *7* WEEKS!  *49* DAYS!  Those numbers just seems soooo small! And they are going to get even smaller!  Although I am nervous about being a mommy, I couldn't be more excited for Baby E to get here! Quite a few people will ask me, "Are you excited?", and I always think, how could I not be excited?  This sweet little baby (and all babies) are such a miracle from God and I feel so blessed that God has chosen Ryan and I as the parents of *this* little baby!  I can't wait to see what it looks like, see what its personality is like, and of course, find out if it is a boy or a girl!:)  

Today, I had my second baby shower with my closest friends from high school and after.  I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls to support me through this entire pregnancy.  I have remained friends with 6 girls from high school which just warms my heart.  We have been out of high school for 8 years this year and we all still manage to keep in touch.  I love these girls so much and rely on them for a lot.  It also helps that 4 of them are also mommies and these 4 girls also adding to their families this year with me so they always have lots of advice for me!:)

 This was taken in early April of the 5 of us that are adding/added babies this year to our families.  Baby Eli was born Jan. 27 and Baby Xander came early on April 17. Three more of us to go!
 In college, I added this lovely lady to my circle of friends.  She is honest, loyal, and so much fun!  

And I have added a handful of amazing girlfriends through Ryan.  When I began dating Ryan, I met so many of his friends girlfriends/fiances/wives and I so fortunately clicked with all of them!  It makes it so nice when the boys want to get together because we ladies want to get together, too!  I am so lucky:)  Unfortunately, I do not have pictures with a lot of them:(  

This week also begins the last week of work for me at the Math Assistance Center (MAC) at IUPUI.  When I began my journey back to school in May of 2009, I started by taking 2 classes and if I loved them I would continue to become a Math teacher; if not, I would have to figure out what I would do with my life then somehow.  Obviously, I *LOVED* my classes and began tutoring at the MAC in August of 2009. It pretty much solidified my love for teaching.  I can't believe 2 years has already gone by and I will no longer be working there.  Although there have been some ups and downs at the MAC, I have never stopped loving tutoring students, especially in Algebra and Trigonometry!  I'll miss working there, some co-workers, and interacting with the students.  I'm excited to see what the future holds for me after Baby E arrives.  I will be beginning my journey of the last few semesters of my degree with my education blocks in January and I couldn't be more excited!

Hope you all have a great week!  Keep praying for Baby E and these last 7 weeks ((hopefully:))) of pregnancy for me!  Pray for a safe and healthy delivery, and a healthy little boy or girl!  And also say a prayer for all other expecting moms and babies.  I have so many people I know who are expecting, due anywhere between August and December! So crazy!

    49 days is NO time at all! I can't wait to hear that your baby boy or girl is safely in your arms and out of your belly! :-)
