I took some pictures of my sister and her husband the other day, and we got a few of me with my sister and some of just me to document my hugeness. I had no idea I was so big until I saw myself next to my sister (who is almost 4 months pregnant). I'm still going to get some professional pictures done here in the next few weeks, but here's a few of me at 34 weeks pregnant!

Thank you Auntie Morgan!

Auntie Morgan's gifts came in the mail today!! Can't wait to use them! I was registered for a Bumbo chair, but then we found out they've been recalled cause babies fall out of them all the time! So we found this chair instead and it has buckles. Yeah for safety! And I LOVE Baby Bijorns. I used one with the little boy I watched and you can barely even tell you're carrying a baby! I'm so glad I got to try things out before I had my own!
Thanks, Momo!!

Getting Ready for the Little Guy

I'm about 6 1/2 weeks from my due date, and I'm getting SO ANXIOUS!! When I was making the pages for the baby book yesterday, I decided to take some pictures of the things we have ready in his room and the stuff I've made him. (Yes, some of it is from a previous post). It's starting to be feel so surreal - I'm going to be holding MY baby in just a few more weeks! It's so fun to get everything ready for him. To look at the little newborn diapers and his clothes and think that he's going to actually be wearing them. To sit in my WONDERFUL rocking chair from Grandma Steff and Grandpa Chris and to think that I will be spending hours rocking MY SON in it. I can't wait to hold him, to take care of him, and to love him! I know these are pictures of just "things," and "things" don't matter in the long run, but to me these "things" represent this whole new blessing in my life. So I want to remember them!

Top left: Blankets I've sewn for him
Top right: My favorite little hat for him! I'm still an Indians fan, but I'm excited to see him with his daddy, hopefully sharing the same loves and passions!
Bottom left: His little newborn diapers!
Bottom right: The blanket I crocheted for him. He's the only child that will get one of those...haha

Top left: I may have gone a little crazy buying him clothes. And the sad part is that's only showing his newborn and 0-3 months clothes....and part of the closet is cut off....
Top right: I LOVE Bordeaux Butt Paste! We used it after every diaper change for the little boy I used to nanny. It's super easy to clean, smells good, and prevents rashes!
Bottom left: One of the bumper pads....we're still working on the rest....
Bottom right: I've gone a little burp cloth crazy...

Top left: The AMAZING glider and ottoman my mom and step-dad gave to us
Top right: My friend gave me her boppy pillow, so I made two covers for it
Bottom left: Pee-Pee Tee-Pees
Bottom right: Just a few books we have to read to him. I really look forward to that time at night!

Baby Book Pages

I'm in the process of making my "baby journal" scrapbook pages. I'm not the most creative person, but I wanted to keep all my ultra sound pictures and journal entries in one place. Here's a few pages so far!
