I now have two baby showers under my belt. It's odd being the one in the spotlight for a change. I'm far more accustomed to sitting on the outside and looking in. But I made it through and enjoyed every second of it. All of my family and friends have been so wonderfully generous. It can be very frightening to think of all the stuff we'll be needing. I have no idea what we'd have to do were it not for the giving hearts that people have. We have all the big stuff now. And plenty of extras. It's hard to express how thankful I really am. You may think that all you did was buy me those onsies and that nurser set or breastpump I picked out. But it's so much more than that. Really.

The baby shower my Mother-in-law gave was great. There were around 15 people there. Many of them Ax's relatives that I rarely see. It's great to visit with them. But odd because they see me only a couple of times a year and here I am, big as a house.

My mother gave me a shower that was equally fabulous. My mom really enjoys breaking out the fancy dishes and serving plates. Mom sets a table that's hard to match. She's spent years collecting the antique punch bowl, ladle, cups, platters, plates, and all things silver and crystal. Mother really made me feel special. Everyone did.

It's great to see all the open arms that little Wyatt will have waiting for him when he arrives.

And speaking of his arrival. Yikes! The more I think about that labor thing. And ya know the pain that will inevitable accompany that....well...all I can say is AHHHHHHHHH. Anticipation of pain will only make it worse. Therefore, I REFUSE to dwell on it. I'm am hereby brainwashing myself. My labor will be all roses and rainbows. Yep, that's what I said. You out there laughing hysterically...shutup. I can be as delusional as I please. Thankyouverymuch.

Epidurals will increase the rainbow and rose count 300 fold!

I certainly hope that's in the plans for you!

Yeah, have you decided about drugs or not?

I'm hoping beyond hope to inherit my mother's labors. She had them quick and with minimal pain, and no drugs for me or my middle brother. But then again I certainly do want them handy if I'm feeling a lot of pain. I just keep thinking to myself that God designed my body for this and I'd like to go natural. But I fear pain. I want drugs ready for injection if needed.
