Weeks 33 & 34: Work Shower & Finishing up the Nursery

During weeks 33 and 34, I definitely felt myself growing. One particular dress that I’d been wearing with no problem (wasn’t maternity but was wide enough to allow me to fit) was getting a liiiittle bit too tight. 🙂

During week 33, my amazing co-workers threw us a beautiful baby shower at Twigs and invited Robert to attend. They held a nice lunch, gave us thoughtful gifts and made us play a “Price is Right” baby shower game. One part of the game involved Robert blindly eating a mixture of nasty baby foods. Once he was blindfolded, they gave him a bowl of cool whip to eat. He was such a good sport. 🙂 I’m very thankful to work in a department and under leaders who cherish their employees so much.

That weekend right before marking off week 34, we headed over to Heritage Park to watch the S.C. Strongman Competition that our friend Gary was competing in. We got to the park around 10 a.m. and watched Gary complete a relay of moving really heavy objects and move a tow truck with an Escalade on the back of it 50 feet. He pulled the truck 50 feet in 28 seconds! It was incredible. We knew he was strong, but he completely bulldozed his competitors and ended up winning the title of Strongest Man in S.C. for the second year in a row.

This week, Robert hung a shelf, hung all of the pictures and helped me put together Baby Girl’s Moses basket holder. I’m so appreciative of his patience and handiness because I know if I’d have hung the shelf and pictures, her room would look like a Dr. Suess room (not in a good way).

34 weeks!
