35 Weeks + Baby Shower

I'm seriously about to pop...  and I have 5 weeks to go.   

For the first time I've experienced contractions.  I never had them with Kohen.  I had really horrible back labor with him.  But the past 3 nights I've had irregular Braxton Hicks (sp?) contractions.  I've also made it to the completely, 100% miserable stage...  at least I'm going to get a sweet baby girl out of all of this pain!

This past Sunday, my sister and friends gave me an awesome baby shower!  The BEST part about it was it was PINK CRAB themed!  You probably didn't know that I'm completely obsessed with crabs...  I love them.  And yes, my love of crabs did play a part in her name.  I love crab fishing and my FAVORITE show is Deadliest Catch.  I'll never forget watching the show one night and seeing the word "Sailor" on the boat and thinking that was a sign to name my baby "Saylor"...Anyway, back to the subject...  Here are some pics from the shower...   


Saylor's "CRAB CAKE"! lol

This was my favorite part of the whole decor.  It was a bulletin board with clippings and photos printed from my blog!!!  It included the story about when I found out I was pregnant, telling Jason, our first ultrasound, feeling her kick for the first time, and much more.  

Seeing this board literally brought me to tears...

They even had a bib painting station at the shower!!!

Here are a few bibs that were painted...

My mom

Time to open gifts!

My friend Tori made this tutu!  (That's Tori sitting next to me)

I LOVED opening baby girl gifts :)

Jason even stopped by at the end of the shower :)

This picture makes me laugh...  I have no idea what we were doing!

When we got home we had even more gifts to open!

This is my "Awww" face...  My cousin Laura made fun of how many times I said it at the shower, lol!

Jason with his momma and his sisters

Nana and Kohen

Kohen loves his cousins!  

Thank you Shelley, Sherri, Tori, Ashley, Amy, Brooke and Angie for such a great shower!!!  I hate that I didn't get a picture of all of us together :(

You look beautiful! I cannot believe it is getting so close to time for Miss Saylor to make her arrival. Since I am not the one pregnant, it seems like this pregnancy has gone by so quickly! LOL! Wishing you a safe, quick, and easy delivery! Hugs, KMO
