Nearly 33 weeks now…

by Hannah

What a great and busy week it’s been! Christmas Eve and Christmas were very nice and spent with family. Saturday my mom, grandma, and aunt threw me a baby shower/ mother blessing. It was such a cool day- I felt completely pampered. Some of my close friends were there, as well as the ladies from my family. I got henna on my belly and hand, and everyone brought a special bead to make a bracelet for me to wear during labor. They also all painted onesies for the baby, which came out really cute. I even had a wreath of flowers in my hair, which Taina made. We got some things we needed for the baby- I am so thankful for the showers and the lovely ladies hosting them (there will be another this coming weekend, for the West Palm and Miami crowds!); I don’t know how we would have gotten everything on our own. Despite my efforts toward minimalism, there seems to be so many things needed for a new baby. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful family and friends.
Now our house is filling with baby things, and I’m realizing how soon he will be here- it is crazy to think about!
Baby Seth moves a lot still- now it’s more pushing rather than the kicks I used to feel. Sometimes it’s pretty uncomfortable, but I can’t really complain too much- it’s all such a miracle and still amazes me.
I plan to post some pictures from the shower when I get some- I didn’t take any with my own camera, of course. Here’s one of my belly from today though:

Mehndi is the art of painting on the body with henna- in many cultures all over the world, especially in India, it is believed to bestow blessings and good luck. Taina did such a great job with mine; I love it.
