12 pictures on the 12th

My friend Kimmy introduced me to the challenge of taking 12 pictures on the 12th of each month. This is the first month I've done it. Hopefully I will do this regularly throughout the rest of the year.

(Sorry the pictures aren't spaced right...blogger is giving me a fit!)

1) Me at 39 weeks.

2) Due to doctor's orders, I have to stay home and "rest" until the baby comes. I am trying to work from home a little. I spent a lot of time on the computer doing emails, playing on Facebook, checking my message boards, etc.

3) Rod has been so awesome about helping around the house. He has taken over laundry duty temporarily which has been great for me. I wanted to help him out in any way I could so I helped him enter some student work into his gradebook.

4) The cats are getting annoying! Every time I try to do something they get in my way. Here Precious decided his fat posterior needed to sit on the papers I was trying to work with.

5) For lunch Lindsey and I split a sub from Jerry's. It was sooo good!

6) In exchange for lunch I got to spend some time with my little nephew!

7) For an afternoon snack I enjoyed some Turkey Hill Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream.

8) I even got some scrapping time in...unusual for the middle of a day on a Thursday!

9) Lindsey gave me some grapefruit. I peeled one and ate half of it before dinner. Unfortunately, it gave me heartburn. It was worth it!

10) I got to spend some time reading. Thankfully one of my favorite magazines arrived last week.

11) Rod bought this video camera off of Ebay so we have a way to easily videotape our new munchkin and transfer the videos onto the web. I spent a little time playing around with the camera so I could learn all of its handy features.

12) Just in case the baby is bigger than expected and doesn't fit in his newborn coming home clothes, I decided to throw a 0-3 month outfit into the hospital bag. A lady from work gave me this as a shower gift. I think she got it at JCPenney's. Isn't it adorable?

What a great idea! If I can remember I'm going to try this next month on the 12th! You cat does have a fat butt, what on earth do you feed them? My cat needs to put some weight on. lol

(remind your son for me, today is the day ;)

Two of our cats are huge! The other one is a little tiny thing. We feed them all the same, it's more about their energy levels.

I wish little "Bucket" would come today...nothing so far. Not even a single contraction.

this is too cute! im glad you joined in! your scrappy page is awesome! love the colors. i love the outfit you picked out. just to give you an idea, sam has already outgrown newborn clothes, mostly b/c they are too short. The carters brand seems bigger, but I think I remember you saying your baby is gonna be long. and Im also jealous youre still looking so lovely! I looked so ragged near the end. Agree with Cherie, today is the day for me too, have that baby already!
