Plenty to tell you about

So I had a dr's appt. last week. The dr. measured my uterus and said it was measuring 33 cm's and it should have only been measuring 30 cm's which means the baby is measuring big. She said it could be measuring bigger for multiple reasons (position of the baby, extra fluid in the uterus) but she wants me to come in for an ultrasound to check out everything just in case. So I am going in this Friday for another ultrasound! I am so excited. They apparently can measure different parts of the baby to be able to tell how much it weighs. I can't wait to see another ultrasound of it since it has gotten so much bigger since the last ultrasound! The dr. said if it is measuring big she is going to put me on a higher protein, lower carb diet. I guess that would make the baby not grow as fast? She also said that if the baby gets to 10.5 lbs before delivery, she will definitely do a c-section. I am hoping that she could just induce me before it ever gets that big but I guess we'll have to see.
Here are some pictures of my growing stomach. This one is a view of what I see everyday. I had to stick out my foot to be able to see it.
This skirt is quickly becoming one of the only articles of clothing that still fit me.

In other news, I cut my hair! One day after work, on a whim, I went into Fantastic Sam's and asked the lady to cut my hair anyway she would like as long as it wasn't too short. After she was done I was a little shocked by how short it was but I am getting more and more used to it. I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet, but I am working on it. I took about 15 pictures to put up on this blog and these are the only two that didn't make my face look completely massive. I am excited for the day it goes back to it's normal size. (along with my hands, feet, thighs, butt, and stomach. And don't even hint that everything is not going to go back to the way it was or I will freak out).I think that is about all that has been happening. I can't believe I am already almost at 32 weeks!!!! So crazy. We have started looking at some baby stuff and there is so much cute baby stuff out there. I want it all. Unfortunately the prices of these cute items are not conducive to someone who is shortly going to be unemployed. The one big item that we are looking into right now is a stroller. Any suggestions? I would love to hear what anyone has to say about buying anything for a new baby. Any items I just can't live without? Or brands that are better then others? Please advise.

Caution: Pictures of Elliot in his birthday suit ahead

So today is Elliot's birthday. It is also his mom's birthday, so we had a lot of celebrating to do. Oddly enough, they both turned 25 this year! His parents got him this awesome suit as a gift. He looks pretty good in it if I do say so myself.
Unfortunately, I cannot get him to make a normal face for any pictures so these are what we got.
I tried to get Elliot Mario Kart but Target and Wal-mart were both sold out so this is what he had to settle for. Gotta love last minute gifts.
