It has been a while...

So I was naive to think that I would keep my blog updated. I completely missed blogging about my whole 2nd trimester. So I will just have to play catch up. The word I would use to describe my 2nd trimester is "breezy." I had all this energy, joined a water aerobics class, walked a lot, etc. It was great! I did fail my first glucose test for gestational diabetes and had to go back for the 3 hour test, which really wasn't that bad. But I passed that one, so no gestational diabetes. Hooray! Matt's sister, Erin aka "Auntie E," and Matt's mom, Nelda, aka "Nonna," started working on Owen's room and it looks FABULOUS! We did a vintage golf theme and it all looks SO good. Those are two talented women. I hope Owen gets some of their creative genes. Here are some pics:

This is the "toy zone!" Fun toys with airplanes flying overhead!

This is the changing table/dresser combo. Sign above says "Tee Time: 2:00 a.m."
His name is hanging from a putter above his bed, and little golf balls are at the end of the pull strings on the fan.
Now I'm in my 3rd trimester, and only 7 weeks until my due date! It has flown by. I have a feeling though that the next few weeks will drag as I get bigger and the weather gets hotter!! But that is ok, I will be willing to sacrifice now for Owen so that he can have fun pool parties for his birthdays! :) I still feel great, I am just getting tired in the evenings again like I was in my first trimester. I almost fell asleep in the pool Monday at water aerobics while waiting for my class to start!! I propped my head in my hands on this ledge and just closed my eyes while floating!! I must say it was really comfy resting in the water feeling weightless!!!

I have had 3 baby on May 9 at Lake Houston Church of Christ. It was so fun to see my family and old friends that I hadn't seen in a long time. Got LOTS of goodies there and had fun going through everything once we got it all home. My second shower was June 7 at West Erwin Church of Christ, and again, got LOTS more goodies and had a bit harder time finding a place for everything!! My third shower was June 13 at Carleta's (a family friend) house in Whitehouse. It was a golf theme and everything was SO cute. There were even golf balls floating in the punch! My fourth and final shower will be June 27. It will be in Lindale at Amanda's (friend) house. It is a diaper shower, so I'm excited to get lots of diapers for the lil bit!! Can never have enough of those!! I am very thankful to everyone who hosted a shower for me and everyone who came to them. It is such a blessing to us. I told Matt that its crazy how we had no kid things in our house, and even my nephews would ask, "Aunt Lindsay, where are all your toys??" and now we have a room that is busting at the seams! Even Logan, our oldest nephew on my side of the fam, said he "just really wanted to play in Owen's room" the last time he was at our house! So thanks to the generosity of our family and friends, we have a home ready for a baby!
