Baby Jack at 30 Weeks

Strange experiences: Seeing our little guy in 3D. He has filled out so much since the last time we saw him.   It's so amazing (yet strange) to see our baby in my belly.  He loves to put his hands in front of his face so it was really hard to get a good shot of him, but we did get to see that he has hair on his head at this point!!!  The tech was so nice and patient with stubborn Jack.  He ended up giving us double the time of our session so we could get some face shots.  So in love with him!
Milestones:   Baby may begin to position himself for birth anytime from now.
Looking forward to:   Finishing the nursery.  So much has been done, but I just want to finish it! I'm also really looking forward to our baby shower with Jason's family in his hometown coming up in a few weeks. 
Thoughts:   I'm so overwhelmed by the love I felt seeing all of my friends and family at the shower last Saturday.  Jack is one lucky little boy already.  It was truly a special day that I will never forget.  I can't wait to share more pictures!
 
We also finished our "prepared childbirth" classes this week and are 99% sure we found our pediatrician!  We've been busy!  I'm super jealous of all of my friends who work in education and are on spring break right now.  What I wouldn't give for a whole week of organizing, cleaning and nesting.  Instead I get to go out of town for a work conference, then rush back to town for lots of work appointments, host a Pi Phi event and co-host a wedding shower this weekend.  All great things, but whew, I'm exhausted already! 
 
As I type this post, I'm 31 weeks and it just hit me today that this means only 9 more weeks (or earlier)!!!  Not going to lie, I'm panicking a little.  I feel like there is still so much to do to prepare, but at the same time I can't wait to meet our little boy!
 
Finally, I saw this book earlier this week and think Tucker needs to get it for Jack!  I'm very nervous to see how Tucker will react to a baby in the house.  He has been my only baby for the last 9 years and Tuck isn't too fond of kids in general.  Fingers crossed!
