Utah Baby Shower

I had such a lovely time in Utah last weekend. It was a very short trip filled with lots of loving faces I don’t get to see very often.

I flew in late Friday night, and my mother put Lindsay (my sister-in-law) and me to work tying ribbons on favors. It was nice to sit and chit chat with her. We don’t get very many opportunities alone to catch up. Then Aaron came and ruined our fun. I also got a chance to see their ultrasound in person. They are having a little boy in November and I can’t wait to meet my nephew and for him to meet his cousin. It’s an epic year at the Maxfield house.

Just two Fatties!
I woke up Saturday morning with the house a buzz for the baby shower and yet again we got spoiled rotten. It was amazing that all my Aunts, cousins, and friends came; I can’t thank them enough for all the love and support. My mother did such a good job arranging the whole event and like always she went totally over board.

The cupcakes were all the rage!

Then Sunday was Fathers day. My parents had all three of their kid’s home and we had such a nice time. My mom and I made breakfast (we should have gotten a photo of that since it’s like seeing Big Foot). I love my dad so much it was nice to spend the day with him. Then later that night I spent time with both sides of the family. It was a great way to end an Amazing weekend.

I Love you Dad!

The Future

As I’m sure every almost new mom does, I have been visualizing what Baines will look like when she is born. I know she’ll be the most awesome baby in the whole world no matter what she looks like. But I hope she is born with tons of hair and Nicholas’ dimples. I also look forward to seeing her get chubby. I love chubby baby legs and arms. I am so anxious for our life to begin with B its driving me crazy. It doesn’t help that I’m not to keen on the pregnancy part but I know it will all be worth it when I see her face!

I saw this picture in a magazine and I swear this will be Baines next summer! (Even cuter of course)

32 Weeks

Right now I'm sitting at my parents house in Utah after an exhausting week. I'm here for the weekend to celebrate Baby B with another baby shower. (we are so luck to have some many people who love us!)

I have been working LA Market since Monday and I am beat. Today is my last day of the 32nd week and I thought I should atleast post an updated picture. My belly has gotten huge! It looks like I'm smuggling a beach ball. Baines is still moving around but I can tell she has ran out of room. Her punches and kick have less momentum behind them. I am getting really anxious to meet her. My doctor said last week that she thinks I'll have her the end of July. I sure hope she's right. I just want to see her face so bad. Until then here is a picture of Baines still cookin. I mixed it up this time and took a photo in a green shirt.

Back in action

I’ve had an extremely busy and stressful last couple of weeks. Unfortunately the blog gets neglected. Now that I’m back I thought I should recap the craziness.

My parents, Maxfield Grandparents and Dustin came to town on 29th, they are here till the 10th helping us work on the house. Nicholas took two weeks off to be home to get work done on the house. I was able to spend the weekend with them over the 3 day memorial weekend. While the guys worked my mom, grandma and I got organized for Baines. We went to Ikea and bought a dresser and put her clothes away. It was really strange to see all her little things folded and in their place. We also had a BBQ at Nicholas parents on Memorial Day. It was really fun to spend time with everyone all together.

On the 2nd I had to leave for my last Dallas Market and last work trip. It was really a hard one since I’m 31 weeks pregnant. I was so exhausted the whole time and the time change didn’t help. Every night I just wanted to go back to the hotel room and eat dinner in bed then sleep. That is exactly what I did. The show was okay but it was nice to see my stores for the last time, well some of them…. I heard from about 15 different people “Wow you are really big, are you sure your only 31 weeks?” “Are you having twins” “you look like your ready to give birth now”. Some times people need to learn to shut their mouths!

I flew home from Dallas Saturday night and was so shocked by all the improvements on the house. The guys have been working really hard. They got the cement done which means we now have a pouch!!!

This is my porch for drinking Mint julep drinking on hot summer days!!!!

Sunday was a really fun day too! It was our baby shower and we got completely spoiled. I couldn’t be more grateful for our awesome family and friends. It was a nice way to end such a busy week. My mother-in-law, Diane and Sister-in-law, Andrea did such an amazing job. they really went overboard and the event was lovely!!!

My Mother-in-law made this cake. So cute!
