Well...I was really hoping to post some cute pictures of the new baby Kai today or tomorrow but I don't think that's going to happen so I'm trying to find ways to distract myself! My doctor seems to think it's fun to tease me with the idea of being induced then snatch those dreams right back! Rude!

Ben's work through us a rockin baby shower on Friday at work. One of the ladies who was in charge of the shower put together this baby cake made out of diapers. I'm sure all you Utah people havc seen a million of them but I had never seen one before and I thought it was the coolest gift ever!!! She went all out! She even made her husband sit down and help her assemble it! She had tied ribbons around some little onsies and placed them all around the cake! It was soooooooo adorable!

I have also finally finished baby Kai's crib set! I had so much fun making it but I was so glad to finish it before he arrives! I found all the fabrics at JoAnn's when I was visiting Nalani in Utah a few months back. Ben thought I had lost my mind when I came home with so much fabric but he loves how it all turned out so I won in the end!

Safety Pins Rock!

About a month ago I decided to wear a new maternity skirt to church that Nalani had given me. All my other skirts were way too tight to wear so I was delighted when I put on this new skirt and it actually fit. Well...I thought it was a little loose but it was comfy so who cared! As I stood up to leave Sacrament meeting I felt the skirt slip down a little so I quickly pulled it back up and life was good. By the time I got to primary the skirt seemed to be getting looser and looser! It was slipping and sliding all around! I was being to get a little concerned. Pretty soon they dismissed all the teachers to Relief Society and Priesthood to give us a little break for the week. I stood up and took about 5 steps before I felt something brush across my ankles. I looked down and sure skirt was laying around my ankles! Luckily I had a black slip on that looked pretty similar to the black skirt I was wearing. I quickly bent down and scooped my skirt back up around my waist as I heard a few gasps and giggles around the room! The only thing I could think to say was, "Oh, the joys of pregnancy!" I made a quick exit and vowed to never wear the skirt again! Today I woke up feeling a little brave! The skirt was just so cute and I really wanted to wear it again. I was determined to not make the same mistake again so I came up with the most brilliant idea ever....SAFETY PINS!!! I pinned the skirt to my "unmentionables" and it worked out perfect! I am happy to report that I wore the skirt again today without flashing anyone! What a day!
