Baby Shower- THOR

 Ive heard the term baby boom a few times this year, and I agree 110% Just about EVERYONE I know is expecting, or knows 12 people expecting. A few of us are due within a few days to a few weeks of one another.
So when I found out I was having a little MISTER, I was stoked, but then thought, oh, that means with so many preggo friends, that I would most likely not get a shower. SO I went into party planning mode. I was gonna do it. I wanted to celebrate my boy! I have nothing in that department, girl clothing GALORE, boy... yeah not so much!!!
The morning of the shower I was calm as a clam. Just set everything up. I took my time eating breakfast, then I realized, Ive made none of the food, CRAP the cup cakes arent made, tables not set up, NICK, GO. TO. COSTCO!!! A friend came early to help set up, oh go hang the pin wheels in the tree.... WAIT, I NEVER FINISHED THEM! CRUD MUFFINS!  Here's some scissors and paper, oh and the string... Its like 95 degrees outside....Its an outdoor shower.....AHHHHHHHHHHH its 10:40 guests arrive at 11.... Im not showered, I smell like booty..... I was panicked.. My mom showed up at about 10. She is a go go go go go type person. I jumped in the shower, I got ready. I came out, guests were there, shower was set up!
With the rush of things, photos didnt REALLY get taken... Here is what I have:
BLESSED beyond words!

Little converse! Silly faces!

Coconut cupcakes, we also had lemon bars and brownies!

Party favors

Drink table.. should moved the box..

What was left of lunch. Sammies, pasta salad, cranberry salad

Little Mister, has a name

When Nick and I first got married he was stuck on the name Jase for a boy, though a cool name, I didnt like it, for my boy. Not long after Nicks cousin named her boy Jase! WOOHOO! That was out.

Then came the name Thornton.... OH MAN! Its Nicks grandfathers name, I DID. NOT. WANT. to name my kid Thornton, no way no how!!! I then agreed that if we had a boy we would use his grandfathers middle name Emerson... Well our next child was a girl and we were done with two kids.... so I thought..... So we made the name a little more feminine and added the y, Emersyn. Done. Then we got a suprise baby, our 3rd girl. Still got to avoid Thornton...

Then pregnancy number four, a boy.... Had to face Thornton, but by this point I had REALLY warmed up to the name, but just not THAT much. So I searched and searched, I read through hundreds of boy names. Then I saw it! It was perfect, fits our family. So his name is:

Gunnar Thornton

Ive been calling him Thor! I love it so much!

Gunnar is a male first name of Nordic origin (Gunnarr in Old Norse[1]) The name Gunnar means fighter, soldier, and attacker, but mostly is referred to by the Viking saying which means Brave and Bold warrior

Thornton is a male given name and surname derived from Old English, meaning "settlement walled by strong thorn hedges" or "thorny estate dweller"

So a brave bold warrior of thorny estates.... HA

I think its a good strong name, especially since he will have THREE older sisters who will be dressing him up like a princess.... :o)

Little Mister is a comin

A asks almost daily when her brother will be here. I tell her almost daily, that I dont know. He will come when he wants! SOOOO I made a paper chain.

Blue is how many days until Im 'full term'
Yellow is how many days until due date
Black is how many days until the end of 42 weeks

A ripped the first one off today, A and E will take turns, they love it! Im excited to watch it shrink!
(as of this post 29 days till full term, 50 days till due date, lets not talk about the black area....)

A was 11 days early, 38 weeks 2 days
E was the earliest at 36 weeks 5 days
P came 17days early 37 weeks 3 days

Do you have a guess of when Little Mister will be here?

His due date is July 4th,
(Though the last few times I was at the Dr she said July 3rd was in her computer... Who knows, they come when they want and its a guess anyhow....)

I think a little nesting has kicked in.. Ive washed his clothes through 3 months, his sheets and blankets are ready. My goal is to have it all ready by the first week of June. June 1st ideally.
