Eighth Month.

Brian and I had time to get in a few belly pictures before heading out to visit the fam yesterday.

That’s me at the beginning of my eighth month pregnant.  EIGHTH!  Considering how incredibly exhausting it is to muster the energy to blow my hair dry, I wasn’t about to let the light sprinkling ruin my hard work.  (Plus, I’m always game for a chance to wear my zebra print rain boots.)

It’s incredible to look back on the first few belly shots, when Brian and I were just getting used to the news that we were having a baby and my body was barely showing any signs of it yet.  If you’d like to see the complete photo, I’ve updated the Belly Progression stream here.

And just one more tidbit on this fine Labor Day: Regarding the salon baby shower, my friend and our receptionist, Andrea, has been working hard on faithfully emailing invitations to those who’ve expressed interest in attending.  We’re concerned that some of the invitations might have accidentally been filtered into “junk” boxes.  If you plan on coming this Sunday, please email your RSVP to Andrea at andrea_mallory@hotmail.com.

Note that the shower is NOT taking place at the salon.

We’re celebrating at:

The Stone House

20670 Fernbank Ct.

Potomac Falls, VA 20165

Also note that if you’re dashing off to Target or Babies-R-Us for my registry and you look up Suzanna Spears, you won’t find it.  You will find Suzy Spears’ registry though!  😉

I’m getting very excited to see what sort of cake the masterful Jesselyn comes up with!  We’ve discussed a general theme/colors, but I’m letting her go with her artistic gut for the most part!

And that won’t be the only surprise.  Brian was commissioned to go to the salon in my absence and answer a few questions about which I’m allowed to know nothing.  This should be interesting!

    It was wonderful to see you all yesterday!
    Delilah was exhausted and could barely raise her little puppy head by evening time. 🙂
    I really enjoyed those nudges from Bennett. 🙂
    Thanks for the lovely and thoughtful gift for our anniversary. 🙂

    Yeah, it wasn’t so scary after all touching your belly. 😛
