Ventured out to Brooke's baby shower today - she's exactly one month ahead of me, due on April 16th with a little girl. Our boys are 4 months apart and our girls will be 1 month apart. Talk about close!
Too bad Aidan had other plans for the shower... rather than sitting quietly while Mama played shower games, ate a nice relaxing lunch, and watched the gift-opening, Aidan decided to fuss until I took him outside... and then proceeded to circle the hostess' house on her deck about 20 times (while my blood sugar dropped lower and lower.) I did manage to get some delicious food in my belly, but took my cranky child home before the gift-opening. Luckily it was a beautiful day and the hostess had a gorgeous view of Mt. Rainier (which I failed to capture.) I did follow Pod around with my camera for a bit, however. : )
(Ok, in all fairness, Aidan played nicely for quite awhile... and even hammed it up in front of the ladies!)
And a few shots from this morning, before we left. I asked Aidan to give the baby a hug (after he gave me a tight squeeze), and he started his cute sighing and leaned into my belly. I'm thrilled Chad was right there to capture it! Nice job, honey!

April, 2008... Brooke (pregnant w/Ryan), me (33 weeks w/Aidan), Susan (pregnant w/Sophia.) It's fun to look back!! Feel like I'm carrying a bit higher this time... is the wive's tale true?
Which wive's tales did you believe before (or after) you knew the sex of your baby?
