My sister and mother threw me the best baby shower!! I was truly touched by how many people came and what great fun we all had!! My sister started off the evening with passing around a stuffed Pooh Bear and each person had to say how they know me and a funny thing about me. Then we played IbabyTunes, and baby Bingo! I opened my gifts and was blown away at all of the things that Matt and I don't have to worry about getting! All the gifts were a great blessing! My favorite part of the night was when Sara brought out an ice cream birthday cake for Griffin and gave each guest a candle. Each person put their candle into the cake and said aloud a wish that they wish for Griffin! I felt so loved and cared for, of course I started crying!! My sister and mother are just the best...My mom has seen me everyday of my pregnancy and has talked me through all my fears and my sister...she lives in TX! It's beyond me how she, with her busy life and 3 sons, can come home and have the time and energy to throw me the best party! It was an evening filled with great food, friends, stories, laughs, games, good wishes, and blessings. Matt and I are so grateful to all of our friends and family that came and shared this special time! Thank you Sissy and Mom! I love you both more than you can ever know!!

I am sitting in Rachael and Griffin's room loading a playlist on my iPod for when I get to the hospital...I had an appointment today with my Dr. and she told me to expect Fin any day now...I am already 50% effaced and dilated...I went to work today and went to see her on my lunch break...She didn't even allow me to work the rest of the day! (I worked from home anyway!!) Now, Matt's in the other room getting the bags ready to grab and we're both really beside ourselves with nervous energy and excitement...Tomorrow is the 4th of July and my boss, Bill, told my Mom that if he's born on the 4th we need to rename him Sam!! :)
Wow. Any day now. Holy Crap. It's time for a root beer float break!
