Getting Antsy

this was a few days ago.. yes, every individual day matters to make mention of (;

I hear it all....
"how many days do you have?"  "You're HUGE!"  "you're tiny, all belly!"  "you're due any day now, right?"  "what, did you have an allergic reaction?"  ...umm, what?  Anyway mostly people just think I'm a monstrosity (but they don't have to tell me!).  At least there's one nice comment in there (:  Let the record show though I have 4 weeks to go.  Three if I'm lucky like Lecia.
I'm almost certain this will be my last belly reveal as I think any bigger would just be out of control.  I TOLD you I stick straight out!  Anyway.  (Didn't Tony do a great job taking these pictures!?:)

This weekend was a little bit of everything.  From emotional to stressful to tiring.  In good ways, though.
I checked my mailbox to find something I ordered for Hyrum to wear in his newborn pictures.  It just hit me how soon he'll be here.  And I just want him to be here!

This weekend I had so much fun shooting two weddings- and my sister in law suprised us by having her baby 10 days early.  Booger.  I'd love that to be me!  I doubt it'll happen though.
I was a ball of nerves just walking in the hospital... because I knew in just a few short weeks I'd be there!
Brody said "can we take it?" and "baby Alyza... so cute."  So I know he's ready for his brother to come.
My favorite thing lately is when we are praying at night with Brody (we have him repeat what we say).. and when he sits on my lap he'll stop what he's saying and yell, "Hyrum's kicking!  I feel him!  Hyrum's moving mommy!"  It's precious.


I'm tired...

Brody will be a great brother, and I hope they have the good relationship your brothers have. I miss your little guy... You are not big sweetie, you are so beautiful. I know you feel big, but that is just that, a feeling. It is a beautiful thing for you to have a baby. Hyrum will be here soon enough, enjoy life as you have it now, it will not last long.

You look fabulous! And I wouldn't ever think you are as close as you are! Some people are idiots.

That is strange the comments people are making, I think what I wouldn't be able to stand is if people came up and put their hands on my stomach.

Brody will be such a good big brother

You're belly is beautiful! I love that we are due right around the same time because your thoughts are my exact ones as well.

Funny story.. I had an old man just the other day tell me I was having twins. Who knew?! Wow, thanks for that old man. As if I wasn't already paranoid about how huge I am getting! :)

Did I ever tell you that if I have son, I will name him Hyrum. After Hyrum Smith. Who I love for his bravery and loyalty to his brother and his religion. Your little Hyrum is going to add to my reason's why, because he is going to be so cute, I'm just sure of it!

All My Love,
Shelby Lou

I for one am hoping for 4 weeks, as I will be there then. I sure hope Hyrum listens to his Grandma Nelson, but if he has to jump the gun and come out of the shoot sooner, I will adjust. I am excited for this time. It is awesome having another grandson to go with the already fabulous grandson I have in Brody. Two of a kind is hard to find, but you have found them. They are miracles! Love, Mother
