11 Months

You have been eating table food and pulling yourself up.  You can stand alone.  Daddy sent his resume to a company in Colorado.  You are starting to form more words.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

Debbie, Liz, and my friend Kim threw me a shower today.  They handed out a roll of toilet paper and told everyone to take some, because the church was about out of toilet paper...actually, for every square they had to tell something about themselves.  They also did the string game.  It was a little better here since some of them would only go around 1 1/2 times.  My friend from Koinonia won that one.  I again got a lot of gifts (look in the baby book).

Pregnancy Journal...#1

Kevin's cousin wanted to throw a baby shower for us since Kevin didn't have any sisters.  Since Debbie wanted to throw me a shower also, I decided to break them up...at Kevin's cousin's house I invited Kevin's side of the family and friends.  I will invite my side of the family and church friends to the other one. 

My first shower (Kevin's cousin's house) was today at 2 pm.  They started by playing games...The first game they had me stand up and turn around so everyone could see how big I was.  Then they passed around a string and everyone cut a piece of string to see who could get the closest to the actual size of my waist.  How embarrassing!!  Some of the strings could have went around me at least 2 times!  My friend from HS won!  The 2nd game they played, they brought out a clothes line with clothes on it.  (You could tell everyone was trying to remember what was on the clothes line)  They then asked everyone to guess how long the line was (12'8").  Quite comical when everyone realized they weren't going to be writing down' everything hanging on the line!  I got many many gifts...to see them you will have to look in the baby book.
