So here I am at 32 weeks and counting...we are getting so close and I just can't believe it. I went to Dr. H today for my checkup and Graham is growing like he should be and I'VE LOST WEIGHT!!! YAY!!! She said that's a good thing cause it's showing that my fluid and water retention is going down due to me lowering my sodium intake...I'm so conscience now of how much sodium is in everything. But that doesn't mean the swelling has stopped...oh no sir! With the heat, it's so hard NOT to swell...but if that is the biggest problem that I am dealing with, then I have to say we are all pretty blessed. I just hope that the pregnancy continues to go as smooth as it has been. Graham and I had a busy but also a boring weekend. We definitely missed Daddy all weekend. :(
Friday, I met my friend Jennifer at the mall to do a lil bit of shopping and I found the cutest dress at Forever 21. I cannot wait to wear it this weekend in Dallas...Then Kari met us and we went to St. Vincent's Hospital to see our friend April who had surgery that morning. Bless April's heart, she hasn't had it easy for the past couple of years and her doctor had to remove one of her ovaries as well as a fallopian tube...Saturday we did a lil running around town and went grocery shopping and then realized it was wayyyyyyy too hot and went back home and laid in the air conditioning for the rest of the day/night. It was pretty boring and pretty lonely but I cooked dinner and cleaned up around the house and messed around in Graham's room...I've been living like a slob since Chad's been gone...he's so good at taking care of me and cleaning the house and such. Sunday, I met Mary (Chad's mom) at Ihop and we ate breakfast and then around 4pm I went to Amy & David's house to meet their 3 week old precious lil girl, Caroline!! Amy and I can't wait for Graham to arrive so we can have play dates...well, and MOMMIE DATES! So there was my weekend in a nutshell.
I'm leaving Thursday afternoon for Dallas to see my husband...OH MY GOSH, I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!! I miss him sooooooo much and cannot wait to see him and spend time together. I'm going to come back to Little Rock Monday morning. Hopefully while I am in Dallas, I will be able to go to Kellar to see Whitney, Chris and their newborn Hailey Grace and to also meet up with my friend Fleck and her boyfriend. I will be sure to take lots of pictures!!

In this next one, you can see the slit in his eye where he blinked!
In this one, he is sticking his tongue out...it's the white part that looks like his bottom lips...it's actually his tongue.
Here are his big feet that he was covering his face with...he was having no more pictures!!! ha!
Chad was so sad and disappointed that he wasn't able to be there with us...but they made me a DVD and also a CD with all of the pictures on it. The DVD actually has on it exactly what mom and I were looking at on the screen. Chad left Sunday morning for Dallas. He has training there for 4 weeks and can't come home on the weekends. :( He comes back Friday, August the 8th only to leave again on August 10th for either St. Louis or Kansas City for the last two weeks of his training. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray that Graham stays put and doesn't want to arrive early. It' s been a lil tough so far having him leave since he takes such good care of us and with it being so close to my due date but I have Sebatian, my kitty, to keep me company...Here's a picture of me at 29 weeks that was taken last Monday.
Our dear friends threw Chad and I a baby shower on June 28th and BOY, do we have some AWESOME friends and family! Everyone was so generous and so wonderful! I seriously didn't think that the gifts from Mom and Greg and from Chad's mom, Mary, were EVER going to end! They all REALLY outdid themselves! We appreciate it so much and I know that Graham will LOVE everything that Mimi, Poppi (Mom and Greg), Nana (Mary) and all of our friends got for him .
