37 Weeks & Counting

Hello last few weeks of pregnancy! (At least I hope.) Don't get me wrong, I want my little girl to stay in there as long as she needs to be healthy and strong but I am READY to not be pregnant anymore. I'm thinking the crazy hot weather has a little something to do with it coupled with the fact I cannot breathe, remember what it feels like to have feeling in my fingers or not have fluid sloshing around in my swollen feet and ankles.

All that to say, I will take my blessings in whatever form they come. Can you believe that large belly below does not have one single stretch mark?!? The human body really is an amazing thing. Every day I look at it in the mirror and marvel at the fact my skin can stretch that much. Just another daily reminder of how awesome our God is to create the female body in such a way that it takes on such different shapes to help bring life into the world.

Anna Ruth's Nursery

Welcome to Anna Ruth's room! With the help of my mother, we were finally able to finish up her nursery this weekend. I loved the way it turned out, so soft and girlie. Yes, there is a lot of pink, but that's exactly how I wanted it. It is ready and waiting for our little lady!

Look what came this week

Our crib was finally delivered on Monday. I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival because it has been on back order since May. We got a MAJOR deal from Pottery Barn Kids using credits and coupons and were able to get this "petite style crib." I had read many great reviews from mothers who were short like me and they all loved this one. It is the same depth inside as a regular crib but just has shorter legs so I won't have to strain my back reaching down when it's placed on the lowest setting.

 Her room is starting to come together but we are still playing around with placement of the furniture since the room is on the smaller side. Can't wait to get it all complete!
