I (Amy) created this blog so friends and family can know what is going on with the little Lorenz clan out in Ohio. Baby Lorenz arrives 2 months from today! Tom and I are excited to head up to Toledo on Friday for our Baby Shower (and Diaper Party for the guys). The Diaper Party idea is new to me, but I have quickly learned that the guys get together, Tom buys them food and adult beverages, and the guys bring along packs of diapers. Interesting concept! I'm really psyched to see friends and family, especially everyone who is coming from so far away! My mom and sister (and Jannypoo!) are coming in from Connecticut. I get to see my sister's belly and feel my niece move around for the first time. I stopped down at Babies R Us yesterday to get the little tyke some fun toys. Pam is coming in from Maryland, Megan's coming down from Michigan, and who knows who else will surprise us! Tom and I are so grateful to have such wonderful friends.
I am feeling well, although the heat is taking a toll on this preggo girl's body. Eighty-five degree weather and 18 extra pounds all in the belly area are a tricky combination! I made Tom trek out with me to find a blue plastic kiddie pool, but alas, they are not in stock anywhere in Oxford.
We were able to spend a lot of time with friends this weekend. On Saturday, we took Annie (our dog) down to the beach to see the beginning of the bass and sawgeye fishing tournament. We watched as a boat-full of Tom's "cop friends" backed into another boat-oops! Apparently, no one did particularly well in the contest, but had a great time enjoying the weather. We spend the evening at Chad and Marcia's celebrating Marcia's 30th birthday with her family, who had come down from Wisconsin to surprise her. The most entertaining part was watching Mark's 3-year old boy, Matthew, chase Elisha's 3-year old girl, Grace through the yard, threatening her with kisses! Whew, we have got a lot to look forward to!
We also bought a John Deere riding lawn mower from a friend of ours. As the official lawn mower of the house, I am totally psyched! Roger said the yard looked like it had mange after my mowing job, but hey, it was my first attempt. Pictures to come!
