I turned 33 this week.
33 weeks! I'm 33 weeks along today, and feeling pretty good! Aside from feeling like my body is falling apart, feeling utterly exhausted 97% of the time and battling the heartburn, contractions, restless leg syndrome and hugeness that just comes with the territory, I feel awesome.

I am so ready to meet this baby.

This baby has come a long way from being the size of a kumquat to weighing about as much as a pineapple now. We still don't know what it is and we're glad for that. The anticipation is so fun! We're seven weeks out from our due date and still need to come up with names. But as much as I feel like I'm about to pop and can't possibly get any bigger, I just have to remind myself that there are many days left. And knowing this is our last baby, I'm trying to appreciate it all. Even when the baby kicks so hard and so often that it wakes me up in the middle of the night. I guess it's just getting me used to those sleepless nights that are inevitable, right?

But this week, I also turned... 33!
Here are my sisters, Abby and Amy, singing "Happy Birthday" to me the night before my actual birthday. They were quite enthusiastic. Watch out, American Idol.
Earlier that day, my mom and Amy and I took all the kids to the park for a picnic. We had so much fun! (This is kind of picture heavy, but how do you edit out all the cuteness?)

We spent the night at my folks' house that night, and it was fun to wake up there the morning of my birthday. I went in to the girls' room to say good morning, and they made me close my eyes and shouted "surprise" while presenting me with homemade cards... that they made without any prompting by anyone! Way to go, sweet girls!

After a lazy morning and lunch with my mom, we headed home to see Gary who was able to come home from Middle School camp to help celebrate my birthday. What a fun surprise! He sent me on a fun scavenger hunt around the house to find my birthday present - a new video camera! Yay!

We had dinner at Texas Roadhouse (how delicious are their dinner rolls and cinnamon butter?!), played with the kids at the park, and ended the night with a movie and Ben & Jerry's. Pretty perfect if you ask me!
