Well the comments from random strangers officially started this week.  Saturday was my first one.  I was starting to think I just looked chubby and not pregnant but I guess I popped last week. 
We were at Home Depot when my first stranger comment occurred.  The cashier looked at me and said "When are you due?"  I told her and it turns out she is pregnant too, due about a month after me.  Since then, four more people have made comments, from a stranger at Braum's to a lady that used my pregnancy to try to get me to adopt a greyhound at the dog park.  But my favorite was the lady in the elevator at work. 
Today after I got off work, I was riding the elevator down to meet Jared.  The elevator stopped on the 12th floor and the doors opened and a lady boards.  She looks at me and her eyes widen as she screams "OH MY GOSH, YOU ARE THE CUTEST THING EVER!!"  She then fills the rest of the ride down asking questions about the pregnancy and telling me that pregnant women are her favorite things ever.  She loves the glow, and the magic of the life growing inside.  I really just felt like laughing the whole time, but she was completely serious.  I'm definitely not used to this much stranger attention.

In other news, we made a ton of progress on the nursery this week.  We built the crib and painted the dresser and even hung some pictures.  I'm sure we will post pictures when it's finished...which will hopefully be later this weekend.  We're so grateful to all of our family and friends that have filled up the nursery.  We are so lucky!

I just realized that we never posted pictures from the re-shoot of the 3D/4D ultrasound, so here's little Paxton in 3D:

 I think this one is the sweetest picture ever....this is how I picture him sleeping in his crib:

 Here's a big yawn from the little guy:
 It's kinda hard to see but if you look right in the middle if the picture, that dark spot is his open mouth:
Maybe I'm biased but I'm pretty sure that's the cutest baby ever.  And I only have 4 more weekends to get ready for him.....
