4 MORE WEEKS!!! 4 MORE WEEKS!!!!! What is going on...time is seriously flying by (but not at the same time) I have reached the point where I want to meet this little man so bad. I am super uncomfortable and it is getting so hard to do things. Especially trying to carry and take care of a Toddler. As you can tell in the picture above the baby is making his way down. He has dropped a bit, I can definitely tell, and I have had a few people also ask if he dropped. So crazy.
We Celebrated Father's Day this past Weekend (on Sunday we had a big BBQ with the Family) it was a special time. We had a blast at my Dad's house, he has a beautiful acreage about 2 minutes from our place. So we had a Fire and a grill and made delicious food. It was perfect.
Father's Day for us is a little post-poned until I can feel better to make Jayden's gift..I have a few things planned. I will do a separate mini post...once I get his gift sorted out!
We had a Prenatal appointment on Thursday and it went really good. It was short and sweet. Because there was really nothing to go over. She did the regular swab for Group B strep (I think it was called) and then we just talked about how far along I am...and that if I want we can start doing the Membrane Sweeps by next appointment (I will be 38 Weeks next one...next Friday) I talked with Hubby....and because he is leaving on the 8th of July we are going to go ahead and do the sweep. Even though there are a lot of people who don't agree with it...it makes me feel ok that it does not effect the baby at all...and that it will only work if Labor is not that far from then. So yeah. We are so excited that things could maybe get rolling by the Weekend or early next week (fingers crossed)
I talked to my Mom the other day..and she told me that she is now going to be coming to stay with us earlier than she was planning. This is so awesome..cause I really, really would like it if she came as soon as possible. I really think this baby is gonna come early...and I could sure use the help around my house with cleaning/prepping and getting ready for baby...as well as someone to keep Isaiah happy and content while I pull out the ol' toothbrush for the toilet...haha.
Just some crocs. I caved. I swore I would never wear these again (I owned my first pair about 7 Years ago...when they first came out) but I have become more interested in fashion since then and threw mine out a few years back (they were bright yellow....lol) these ones are a litte more better than the bright yellow...and I can use them later as my garden shoes. But I will admit they are super comfortable. They were about $40 including shipping (I ordered 4 pairs in total...2 in this style size 6 & 7, and some flip flop style ones size 6 & 7...because of course I didn't know my size) Size 6 is perfect...and I did not like the flip flop ones...
Just one baby buy this week. I ordered it about 1.5 Weeks ago and it arrived this week ;)
Seriously how cute is this? We have exciting things gonna happen for his first little photoshoot, and this was an absolute MUST to add to it. We now have a metis sash, this little headband and some mukluks...and I made a little pair of pants a while back that he will wear over his diaper (or some naked shots too) He is going to look so handsome all dressed up and being proud of his heritage. I am sad that I didn't think to do this for Isaiah's first photoshoot...but I guess it's nice that they will all have unique shoots each as individuals :) I ordered this through Etsy. Here is her page...go and check it out if you wanted to know about that. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ImaginationCouture?ref=l2-shopheader-name
I think it was about $23 after the crazy amount of shipping and what not. The headband itself was only like $11 or $12..haha. But oh well I didn't want to make one my self (because I have a million other things to do) and it is nice to support other's once and a while I guess :)
How is Mama Feeling? I am feeling like I could have this Baby any time...not gonna lie I have been pretty paranoid all week thinking he will arrive early. He has dropped a lot, and I can feel so much pressure down low throughout the day...sometimes it is actually pretty painful. The Braxton Hicks are just getting stronger and annoying...and sometimes they are actually pretty close together (but only last like 20 seconds). So yea that's not cool...but I guess it could be worse. Other than feeling pressure and Braxton hicks I think I feel pretty great. But it definitely has made the "Nesting" kick in full force. I have been keeping so busy these past few days with scrubbing my kitchen and re-organized the cupboards and pantries (we have 3 of them...because we are that hardcore...really they are just 3 Shelves) But I am really loving the changes around my house and I think they are great changes and should probably stay the way they are now. My Hubby get's so frustrated...because I love change...I love a fresh new look every few months...I only move things around until I find the best possible place for that piece of furniture (or whatever I am moving) We were able to get meatballs and veggie burgers done for our freezer. So that makes me happy that there are 2 other options (as well as some of the other things I made over the past few weeks. There are a few more things I want to make...like Pizza's, Cabbage Rolls, Perogies, more Smoothies, more Waffles and probably a few other things...although I won't beat myself up if I don't get through my list of things to do. My biggest priority these days are to get all the dust bunnies out of my house and move some of the things that haven't been moved since we moved in here. Like our Washer/Dryer (which I don't know when the last time was even cleaned behind) But yeah full force Nesting going on at my house.
