(Nearly) 30 weeks

We have almost hit the 75% mark. As of tomorrow, we will have accomplished 3/4 of this pregnancy. Wow! The time does seem to be picking up a bit, which I admittedly welcome... even though we still have so many projects to accomplish at home before our little guy comes... including deciding on a name!

The biggest change I've noticed this week, besides an increase in discomfort, is a tremendous growth spurt. I'm not sure if it's baby or if it's me, but my belly is a ton bigger. E was gone for 3.5 days and noticed it when she returned on Saturday night. Tot does, again, seem to have grown stronger. Some of the kicks and punches positively surprise me! and I still love them all.

This weekend, Grandpa is coming to visit. We always look forward to spending time with him. It's been over two months since we've seen E's dad, so this is a particularly welcomed visit. I'm sure we'll do the usual: sit around and chat, go out to eat, eat in, sit around and chat... I'll go to bed and they'll chat some more. As much as we're looking forward to his visit, I think Gladys might be the most excited if she knew he was coming. He may be her very favorite person on the entire planet. If only she knew what was in store for her!

Congrats on 30 weeks! Very exciting. You've done such a lovely job.

Have a nice time with the family. You both are so good about spending quality time with those close to you. It's great to hear about. ox

I think my dad is my dogs favorite person on the entire planet too. Isn't that funny?

Hooray for 75%! I think you need to post belly photos!

Having spent time with E's fabulous dad in college, I have to say: I'm jealous. He really is fabulous. I bet you'll get a postcard later (does he still send those? they were my favorite!)

Wow! It seems like yesterday...
Congrats on the milestone! Just a few more weeks and it'll be just 'another few more weeks'. I can't believe it!!
Have fun with Grandpa. Make sure Gladys gets lots of attention because she's about to grow a jealous bone! :)

Hey congrats on 30 weeks!
Erin's dad seems amazing, it must be so nice to have such supportive in-laws (between you and me my MIL is crazy, honest!).
I would love to see some belly pictures if you have any to post, I bet you look super cute!

I can't believe you haven't picked a name yet!!! We had ours picked out 2 years before we were pregnant! Do you at least have a list to choose from?
Congrats on hitting 30 weeks! Enjoy the time with family, I know that the time is precious and limited.
