I'm loving maternity tops and basically plan to live in them through the summer. I've felt really good the last week. My skin is the best its been and sleep has been pretty decent. I still struggle with getting comfortable throughout the night, but that's to to expected.
Heart burn is my biggest negative symptom. Sometimes propping myself up a bit when I try to go to sleep helps with that. I had a massive headache on Sunday night, but I was out in the sun all day, so that could have been why. It was really bad though. It was the kind of headache where I had to climb into bed. I couldn't open my eyes because the pain was so bad, but thankfully I slept through the night. I woke up Monday morning still feeling the aftereffect of the horrible headache, but it had substantially subsided - thank goodness!

When I walked into my Aunt's house, the first thing I saw was the adorable cake that my mother-in-law provided. I truly cannot get over how cute it was - and delicious! We have an owl theme going for the baby's room.
My husband came at the end of the shower to help open a few gifts...
My mom and mother-in-law are both wonderfully talented ladies at sewing. My mom made the happiest looking owl quilt (above). I can't wait to use it in the nursery. I'm not sure if we're going to use it as a blanket or hang it on the wall yet. She did an incredible job on it. And my mother-in-law made the coziest baby blankets that I plan to keep in a basket next to the crib and probably some in the family room as well. You can never have enough blankets and they are so cute and soft.
The food consisted of wraps, salad, fruit salad, and of course cake - food heaven! We are so lucky that the weather was perfect as well. I can't wait to set up all the baby stuff in his room. That is my biggest goal for the next few weeks and a very fun one.
These owls will be chilling in my car until baby boy comes. They are just so happy looking.
Have a great week!
