Shower for Daniel

Check out the babies who joined the party! Christie's son, Marcus and Sarah's daughter, Emma.

Let's open presents: a blanket made by my mummy for littleDaniel! I am admiring the crochet pattern and the name! Daniel Delima -- Derrick would be so proud.

"Should I open this? The wrapping is so pretty." -- talking to my sister.

Presents from my sister Lady and Shiela! Love the sheets!

ooohh... let's open this up!

presents from Phyllis

Cute bath wrap from Tita Hannah. Daniel also received a Children's Bible from her (not shown)

cute clothes!

more cute outfits!

I am excited for Daniel's gifts!

Lucky belly bump rub from my sweetest friends - Katherine, Hannah and Mindy.

Awesome friends who drove 4-5 hours to celebrate Daniel!

Sarah, Sarah, Suzanna and Emma! hahaha.. (these ladies call me isis!)

We are missing Jamie -- then our Muncie Bible study group would be complete!

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon-- to all the guests that came and celebrate my little one on the way. Thanks to my sister Lady and my mother-in-law Lisa who co-hosted the party with my mum. And most especially, biggest thanks to my mummy, who labored to cut up fruit and salad ingredients when I was post-call and really tired; who prepared all the games; who organized almost everything! You're the best, mummy! You're going to be a great LOLA (grandma!)


Belly Week 27

The Simple Woman Daybook
FOR TODAY (May 3rd, 2009)

Bible verse for the day... The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. -Lamentations 3:22-23

Outside My Window... spring is in the air -- tons of tree pollen! I am having an allergy flare-up.

I am thinking. . . of my growing baby. I call him my awesome soccer player. He can really kick.

I am thankful for. . . my mother who is organizing my baby shower. She's amazing -- mother's day is coming up!

From the kitchen. . . I brought the usual: grapes, yogurt, pasta.

I am wearing. . . my scrubs and cami -- which are getting tighter and tighter! I am extra uncomfortable today. I also have a gray zip-up hoodie which would not zip up anymore. It is tight in the middle section (as expected).

I am going. . . to answer more Prep board questions about Endocrinology -- my rotation for the month of May.

I am reading. . . the Book of Daniel.

I am hoping. . . for a manageable call night tonight at the hosp.

I am hearing. . . beeping monitors. The call room walls are not that sound-proof.

Around the house. . . we have our binder and handouts from our lamaze/birthing class. We started last week. It's a 7-week course which includes breathing/relaxation techniques, labor and delivery and breastfeeding.

One of my favorite things. . . my pink water bottle filled with water, which keeps me hydrated throughout the day.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .

  • Go to the new parents class

  • Take my glucola test -- to check for gestational diabetes

  • Get pumped up for my golden weekend!!!

  • See mom and my sissy on Mother's Day

This is Belly Week #... 27.Weight gain to date... 25 lbs.
