John Pinette is Hilarious.

For my birthday we went to see John Pinette perform at our local comedy club. My sides hurt from laughing so hard. Ted and I remember him from his "Chinese Buffet" joke back in the day. He didn't even do that bit last night and we were rolling the entire hour. This comedy club is an awesome venue to see comedians because it is fairly small...we were about 10 feet from the stage...and John came out to the bar afterwards to sign DVDs and chat. He's is super friendly and was kind enough to take a picture with us, which I'll proudly display below. If you ever get a chance, be sure to see his show. He has quickly risen into my top 5 favorite comedians of all time.

John Pinette: "Chinese Buffet"


We have been getting an abundance of beautiful and thoughtful gifts for the baby in the past couple of months. Thanks to everyone who has thought of us! After a long debacle with my sewing machine I have finally finished hemming the curtains for the nursery and we are almost done putting it together. The one last thing I'd like to get is a nice fuzzy white rug, so I've got my eye out for that addition. We've added some wall stickers, the curtains, and a glider since our last photo session, so here's some updated pictures. It's nice and cozy and relaxing in there...I just spent some time in the glider looking out the window and it was very peaceful. Baby B was punching me while I rocked, so I think he/she was feeling at home as well.

My 29th birthday was yesterday and I was spoiled with more gifts for Ted and I and the baby. My family chipped in and got me the glider you see pictured above...thanks guys! In lieu of a card this year, my parents sent me my old newborn footprints from when I was born. They are framed and on display in the nursery...can't wait to compare feet with Baby B...though I'm really hoping that he/she has Ted's adorable box feet instead of my crooked toes. :)

You can also see some adorable knitted blankets that Ted's Mom made for the baby. There is nothing like those homemade gifts, you know? Thanks to Pam for all of her wonderful work. She also included an adorable sweater, hat, and booties for Baby B! Can't wait until he/she is here to wear them!

Ted's sister also surprised us recently with a package of cute outfits for the baby...including a shout out to the 'Cuse! Thanks Erin!

So, that's it on this end. I'm feeling the baby punching me all the time now, and Ted has even felt it! Pretty awesome. We're going to be 22 weeks on Wednesday. Over half way there!
