Christmas Tree

Yesterday afternoon Charlie and I went out and chopped down our christmas tree. This was a first for the Nardiello Family and I can say it won't be the last. Trying to choose a tree is very difficult especially when the trees are not labeled. After about 45 mins of wandering we went back to the first tree we saw. I was impressed with Charlie's skills....just a few minutes and the tree was down. The hardest part was dragging back to the barn. I was of no help so Charlie had to drag it by himself. Next year Henry and I will be able to help!

Here are some pictures from our outing.

34 Weeks....

I know I have been a little slack with writing lately, but honestly there has not been too much to report. Charlie and I have just been busy getting the house organzied and I am trying to tackle all the Christmas shopping.

We are at 34 Weeks - which means there are only 6 left!! He puts on a great belly show at night. I think he is running out of room in there.

Here is an idea of what is happening with the little guy:

His senses are continuing to improve, his eyelids and irises blink and dilate. He is starting to slow down growth wise and soon he will start to desend into my pelvis. In this 8 month he will weigh anywhere from 4.2 to 5.8 lbs and is the size of a honey dew.

Baby Shower

This past weekend was my baby shower! It was hosted by my wonderful mother in law, Bet and my sister in law, Nadine. They did an incredible job!! They hosted it at Paolo's restaurant in the Reston Town Center. It was the most perfect location. Everything was just beautiful. I can't thank them enough for everything that they did.

Charlie and I are so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends. We got so many incredible gifts for Henry! Everyone was just so generous and we apprecatie everything that was given to us.

Here are some pictures from the shower!

The cake that was just oh so yummy!

A little pain to make you beautiful......

So the other day I was having dress dilemma about what to wear for my shower this weekend. I bought a dress awhile ago but you all know me I second guess what I sometimes want to wear. So on my way home I stopped at Kohl's to see if I could find something else. Well I found some cute dresses but those will have to wait until after pregnancy bc it was a very scary sight!!!!

I finally get home and decide to try the dress I already have on again. Well I do and then I play around with shoes..................I think, hmmmm my black boots will make this dress look cute and not so frumpy. I go and try them on - I can't get my feet into them! Finally after some serious wiggling and not falling on the ground I get one on. Only to find that zipping them will cut off all circulation in my legs.

As a child my mother always told me "A little pain to make you beautiful" do you think she meant it like this?

Carolina Game

This past weekend we headed back to school for some football! It was great seeing our friends and tailgating with them. It was also awesome to see the Gamecocks finally beat Tennessee at home. I think this was only the 2nd time we had beaten them at home!!!

Here are some pics from the weekend. You can see my 30 week bump in some of the pics.
