SD Baby Shower

The San Diego baby shower and baby shower BBQ were a hit! We all had so much fun, and got awesome AND practical baby gifts! Kudos to Mom, Jenn, Karen and Sari for putting on such a wonderful celebration for girly baby Simon and thanks so much to all of those that came for the thoughtful presents. Now we just have to fit them all in our tiny apartment! I'm certainly looking forward to that "nesting" instinct kicking in in a few weeks!!!

Music to my ears

Stephen, Courtney, Andreas and I went to the Jack Johnson concert tonight at UCSB's Harder Stadium. It was great fun. The baby seemed to enjoy it as well! Here's a short video of him singing (he was pretty good live) and a little bit of my terrible singing for your viewing pleasure.

Kick the people you love- it's a new sign of affection

The baby's kicking has gotten more and more intense over the past few months (sometimes it actually hurts!) and I wanted to document it. Every night before we go to sleep, she gets real rowdy, especially at her favourite hang out spot, the very right side of my abdomen. So last night, as I was laying on my left side in bed, I made a little video of her. Watch the right side of the frame for some action. I wonder if this is an indicator of things to come...!

The belly is taking over

30 weeks and 3 days! Do you think I can still fit into Abercrombie and Fitch clothes?

I'm in stroller heaven!

Yey!!! We've finally chosen a stroller/pram after months and months of research. Yes, believe me, 'months and months of research' is really necessary when buying travel equipment for a child- ask any parent or parent-to-be. It is seriously like buying a car. We ended up with the Bugaboo Bee in dark khaki... a great, neutral lighter-weight stroller that one can also use for newborns with the addition of a 'nest/cocoon'. It's oh so purty.

Go the Gold and Green!

After only being here for a few short days, Johno was so sad to go, and we were sad to see him leave... rather we'd have loved to go back to Brissy with him!!! But, he'll be back in January to visit again, and most likely we'll go back to Oz in July 2009 if all goes as planned. Here we are, the three musketeers, sporting Aussie colours. Advance Australia Fair!!!

Aussie mates

Our friend John has been visiting us from good ole' Brisbane, Australia and what do we do...? Well, we put him to work building our new shed of course, make him earn his keep! ...Such a good bloke that John...

Do I look bigger?


I feel like I'm busting out of my clothes and I still have 3 months to go! AH! This is me at 27 weeks and 5 days.
