Holy Moly...is all I have to say. This pregnancy is cruising by. I cannot believe there is potential only 7-10 ish Weeks left. Yikes! I for real need to get my butt in gear.
Well there has been tonnes of stuff going on around here lately. My Sister-In-Law and my little niece came down to visit for a Week. They stayed with our In-Laws. I had a blast with them. There truly isn't anything better than seeing my little man play with his cousin. He seriously loves his little cousin. So cute! So we kept pretty busy all week with outings and what not. My Hubby was gone on a "Rock Tour" he has a Rock class that he took on tour around some schools in Alberta! So we missed him, but it was nice to have company here as well to keep our mind off him being gone.
Also it all of a sudden went from using shovels to using rakes...within a Week. Seriously the weather is gorgeous here, and we have been spending a lot of this past Weekend and first few days of the new Week outside. We went and picked up my Birthday Patio Set a few days ago and Hubby set that up for us on Sunday. Then on Monday I went into Edmonton with one of my other Mama friends to get some shopping done. We went in for a Costco grocery trip, but there was other places that were a must stop at as well. So we shopped for our babies and for us too. It was such a long day, but so fun! Not sure if you guys like seeing my Mama/Baby buys. But I like posting them, so yeah hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do. If not...sorry about that.
We have a birthday party to go to on Thursday, so we are excited for that. Isaiah's little friend Emilie is turning 2 Years Old! How time flies...a few short months and he will also be turning 2. So crazy to think about.
Anyways here are my Mama/Baby Buys for this Week, since there really isn't anything else to update on!
We went to H&M and I picked up this Maternity shirt for about $12. The quality is actually really great and I feel like it looks really great, my nice round belly! LOL
Old Navy has always been another go to place for me. I like their maternity clothes...although if was to compare I would say H&M has better quality in their clothing. But I couldn't resist this $4 top I found on the clearance rack. Very light weight and will be perfect for summer. Stripes just look good with a big belly full of baby (in my opinion)
Then we went to Thyme Maternity and I picked out some nursing musts.
The left is just a basic nursing top tee, you have the extra piece of fabric that you can just lift up for easy nursing. Then I found just a light tank top for the summer (which you just pull down from the top when you need to nurse) The last time I was there I picked up that navy blue scarf (from last weeks post) so when I went this time around they had them on sale for $12. SO I grabbed the other color they had. I am going to really enjoy using these to cover up this summer :)
So the last time I was at Thyme maternity they gave me a coupon that was basically if you spend $100 you get $50 off your order (during a certain time period) Which kind of started the idea of going into Edmonton to go shopping...I knew I needed nursing gear and I didn't want to waste that amazing deal. So when I was in there the other day I ran into these swaddling blankets...which I have been drooling over since before I was even pregnant with Isaiah a few Years ago. These are marketed at $49 a box for huge massive, bamboo organic swaddling blankets. So I pretty much got these babies for free. I know I am going to LOVE having these with my new little man, and more babies to come. Best part is, the patterns are the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life and I would totally wear them as scarves later (something to use after I am done having my babies)
Also because my bill was over $100 I got this free little onesie with my purchase.
So I picked out the 2 nursing tops, the nursing scarf, the swaddling blankets and got this cute little onesie for $65. What a deal I just scored!
I could not even resist these. LOL. Since our baby will be born in the middle of a hot summer, I thought these would be perfect! I LOVE H&M. They were about $15/each which is pretty normal for little outfit sets.
I was definitely keeping my eye out for matching outfits for the boys, but couldn't find much, I needed 0-3 and 18-24 months ish (Isaiah is 18 Months...but he still fits 12 Month clothing) So 18 Months will probably still be a bit baggy when his little brother arrives. I found these cute little button dress shirts at Old Navy for $5.99 each on clearance. Of course I had to buy Isaiah this shirt when I saw it...Best Bro Ever (from Old Navy)
That's pretty much it for what I bought for myself and my Little Men (I bought Isaiah some well needed sleepers, pjs and summer clothes...but I am just focusing on what I am buying for a new baby. LOL. Plus that would take forever to include what I buy him on a regular basis. LOL!
How does Mama Feel? I am feeling actually pretty darn good. Definitely times of discomfort and heartburn. But I really can't complain. I feel like I am getting more energy and I am ready to start hanging out outside and going for walks. I am so happy Summer has arrived!
How Big is Baby for Week 29? Baby is the size of a Cucumber. Measures about 15.2-16.7 Inches and weighs about 2.5-3.8 lbs. Getting bigger. Not much longer!
