I've been so awful about keeping up on the blog due to the many balls I'm juggling in my life right now. The biggest stress is that my Professional Certification for teaching is wrapping up. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, it is basically proving that I'm eligible to continue teaching by meeting the state standards. So complicated and I don't want to bore you, but it has been consuming my thoughts which is so sad because Izzy should be consuming my thoughts. I finish with my Professional Certification on June 4th, but I present on May 28th to a group of principals, my instructor, and some classmates...Yikes! I keep telling myself that everything will get done just like it always does. Hopefully Isabella stays content until the 5th of June. Then we can go into labor! Everyone seems to think that I will go early. My official due date from the Doctor is June 22nd, but my 32 week appointment I was measuring a week ahead (just like I always thought). Then I had my 34 week appointment yesterday and she said I'm measuring on track!? I don't know. I guess time will tell. I have been so uncomfortable lately. Feet and hands get swollen all the time. I'm no longer able to wear my wedding rings. Justin had to pry them off the other day. I feel like I'm a house and my best friend is the porcelain goddess. On a better note, my kindergarten team gave a shower for me and my other team member Kirsten on Friday. We had a great time. Diane and Lori know how to throw a party. They are masters! On Saturday was my family shower thrown by my mom, sisters, and aunts. It also turned out so cute. It was a jungle theme to go along with our monkey hanging in our nursery and some of the things we registered for. Both of my sisters were up for the weekend. We also had a ton of fun. It was so nice to be together. Next time they see me Izzy will be here! Mother's day was nice. We spent the morning helping my mom move just down the street from me! I am super excited that she is so close. Later in the evening, we had Justin's family and mine over for dinner. It was such a great weekend and now we are back to the grind. I am very excited for this weekend. Our very close friends Jason and Beth and Jerame and Katie are throwing us a couples shower on Saturday. Should be a blast. Justin is VERY excited! It so cute! All of his best buddies will be there. Then on Sunday, my best friends Katie and Trina are hosting my girlfriends shower! Isabella is SPOILED already! Here are some pictures of last weekend...

Roy rolled in the pollen and petals...I'm glad he is black so I can tell just how dirty he is!
