Shim's Busy Weekend!

Ben, Shim and I had quite the busy weekend! I guess we're just trying to squeeze a few last minute fun activities in while we're still child-free. That isn't to say that once Shim is born we won't be able to get out and do things but it certainly won't be as easy and I know I am going to find it difficult to leave my baby at home.

Friday night we headed to Chastain Park Amphitheater to see My Morning Jacket. This is a group that Ben introduced me to and we both really enjoy. I'm glad he is able to keep me up to date on all the latest "cool" music. (Something tells me all that teeny-bopper Justin Bieber music isn't exactly hip for 30+ year olds!)

Ben likes posing with the "ball" (as Ellie calls it) in my stomach!

I normally like feet pictures, but this one is just gross. Doesn't matter what I do, the swelling stays!

The concert was fun but man did it really wear me out. I don't think I've slept in past 8:00 in a few years and somehow I slept until 10:00 on Saturay morning! I did get up and run a couple of quick errands but was back in the bed at 1:30 and napped until almost 4 that afternoon! I guess my body just needed the rest.

That night we headed down to Fayetteville for a wedding. Despite the rain, and my attempt to shove my swollen feet into heels, we had a really great time and I of course took the opportunity to indulge in yummy wedding cake!

Not my best photo -- but remember it was raining and we were outside under a tent.

Sunday morning Ben was able to play a little golf while I did some things around our house. Then Mom and I went to Babies R' Us and Target to pick up a few last minute things that Shim will need right at first. We are so lucky to have had so much given to us at my two showers and there really wasn't a whole lot left that we needed. After that, Ben met me at my parent's house and we did my/our final maternity pictures!

"Whatcha doin' in there, Shimster?"

37 weeks -- our final Shim in the belly photo shoot!

I sure hope I don't get any bigger than this!

I can't wait to find out if Shim is a girl or a boy. Secretly, I'm hoping for a boy...If the baby is a girl, she'll need some serious therapy to get over the "Shim" nickname! :)

I hope you're feeling well (Looks like you are!). I'm thinking about you, Ben and Shim and looking forward to the news!

Yes a very busy weekend...NOW will you please stay off your feet and cook that baby!?

You could not get any cuter~! And your feet are hysterical - stay off of them and relax these last few weeks!

I love this post because of all of the pictures, and you look great Katie! Sounds like a fun weekend! Good luck with the last couple of weeks!

Oh your poor little ankles! That picture is awesome.

I loved seeing your photos! I know you and Ben are getting excited! I can sympathize with your ankles.. Mine looked like that at the end of my pregnancy also! Look forward to meeting Shim.

oh how i remember the feet thing - ugh!!! but it sounds like you had a crazy busy weekend so those little footsies were just plain worn out! the only tip i have is a good long foot rub from your husband... :) that should do the trick.
