A Pineapple? Really?

At 33 weeks and 1 day, we have 6 weeks and 6 days to go. My "What to Expect" iPhone app says Raisin is as big as a pineapple. hmmmm. I don't know if I believe that. If it said she was as big as maybe 5 burritos or 23 pizzas, then I'd agree...because that's what it feels like. In fairness, Mr. Q says "pineapples are pretty big!" 
errrr...okay...
This photo shoot was a struggle...I'm not gonna lie. I didn't really feel like taking pictures. I didn't like looking at the pictures. I remember specifically telling Mr. Q that we were just going to stop after the last set. Raisin would understand, right? 
But we did it...and it's okay...and next month will be okay too...and then we'll start posting even better pics. Of our little girl :)

To Shower with Love

It appears as though Spring has arrived, and even though it is not quite April...we were blessed with some delightful Spring Showers in recent months. Our baby shower in Michigan, which I mentioned in another post, was *quite* lovely, and our Milwaukee celebration followed shortly after that. While it is always exciting to go home and visit, this was especially fabulous because I was able to see so many of my best girlfriends (many of whom I had not seen since our wedding) as well as spend time with family.
There were sugary pink sweets, a delicious meal of homemade soups and salads and lots of precious touches here and there.
I loved, loved, l-o-v-e-d it.
Thank you so much to everyone who was able to make it such a great night. xoxo

Camera Shy




Today we had another ultrasound and much to our dismay, Raisin did not want to be properly photographed. She was covering her head (which is now facing down) with her hands like "No! Go away!" so we didn't get to see her lovely face or anything. Sad. But we did get to see some fun things like her feet (she was wiggling her toes), her spine and her cute perfectly round head. The tech estimated her weight right around 4lbs or so, putting me a tad bit ahead in our weeks here...31 weeks actually...which means Raisin could be arriving early if she continues her little growth spurt at this pace. But overall, she is looking like a very healthy, active, growing baby.
Mr. Q says it's because I'm a "good incubator".
And honestly, at this point, I'll take a compliment whenever I can get one.
