36 1/2 weeks

Less than ONE MONTH (if Baby J actually comes on his/her due date) away until we get to meet Baby J!!!!! So exciting! It has officially become impossible to put on and tie my shoes without grunting and getting winded. I had my first long doctors visit on Wednesdsay. So the specs... I gained another 6 POUNDS over the past two weeks, bringing my total to 19. Baby J's head is down (which makes sense because my pants require a lot of pulling up, so that I'm not "saggin" at school), I'm dilated 1 cm, and it's butt is right underneath my heart. We have a countdown started, t-minus 23 days and counting, YIKES!!! It is time to start solidifying some baby names (that would make me feel a lot better). Last night we went to the Hopkins Homecoming game with Anna and Nick. We had so much fun and it was great to see all my old students. They all wanted to pat my belly and say hi to Baby J. It has changed quite a bit since May. We love you all and can't wait to see you soon. I'll make sure Stef posts a few of his favorite pics from the Boundary Waters.

God Bless, Stefan, Betsy, & Baby J

1st Baby Shower

This past weekend our friend's Sarah and Trevor hosted a friends shower for Baby J and the two of us. It was a mix of friends from high school and my family. They were amazing hosts and we had so much fun. We thought we'd share some of the pics from the party. Nesting has truly began at the Julien household. We are having a blast getting ready for Baby J. We officially have a changing table (we'll post a pic later), diapers, crib, mattress and sheet. What else do you need? :) Love you all! I'm off to pick up my hubby. He just got back from the Boundary Waters and I'm sure he'll have some GREAT pics to post soon!

God Bless, Betsy, Stefan, and Baby J
