One More Hurdle to Jump

Posted by TEAM PARKER at 12:47 PM 2 comments Links to this post
Itsy Bitsy Parker is due exactly 19 days from today...my how time flies!  I reached the 37 week mark yesterday, which makes me full-term, and essentially IBP could be here anytime.

From the beginning, there have been a couple of January events to get through before IBP arrives.  I was a bridesmaid this past weekend in my good friend Laci's wedding.  It was a fun-filled New Year's weekend full of festivities that I successfully made it through.  And what a neat wedding!  You see, the groom is a Navy Seal and along with that came a plethora of Navy guys into Austin, complete with a post-ceremony sword arch.  It was also great to see so many of my Theta girls and I'm sure they enjoyed seeing me in all my pregnant glory, too.  Hopefully my body will be back to normal for our next hoorah!  Fun times, for sure!

with the beautiful bride!

Now for the last hurdle to jump...JP going out to California for the National Championship.  Since the beginning of the season, we felt like the Longhorns had a good chance at making it to the BCS title game this year, but once they beat Okie State, we felt like the deal was sealed so I hurried up and booked JP a flight out to LA.  I have to say I'm a bit jealous that I'm not able to make the trip, especially considering the fun we had out there in 2005, but I didn't want JP to miss out on another Longhorn football milestone, considering my due date would still be a couple of weeks out.  So, if all goes well, he will be headed out early the morning of the game and back the following day, so keep your fingers crossed that IBP doesn't make his or her entrance into this wonderful world until Daddy gets back (and hopefully with a win)!
