oh baby:: 32 weeks!





So, yeah. 32 weeks, people.

I've got swollen elephant feet (my left sandal actually broke the other day!) , ridiculous heartburn (still) and a baby that loves to dance. Or do somersaults. Or swim laps. Whatever he's doing in there, I'm so glad that he lets me know that he's growing strong and healthy. I've heard that a baby's movement patterns hint at their schedule after their born. If that's the case, I wonder when this child will ever sleep!

I'm excited to have my first visit with my new midwife tomorrow! God does a pretty incredible job of working out the details and I actually have the same midwife that my sister-in-law had when she gave birth here three years ago! We're looking into an accelerated Bradley method class too. 

It's doing this mama heart good to be able to start setting up Si's nursery this week. Chris put together the crib on Sunday and I found the perfect dresser on Craigslist for his changing table. It's already my favorite room in the house. Every time I walk by it, I can't help but peek in and dream about the joy that will fill it in the months to come.

  4. *Sigh* I know exactly what you mean about the nursery being your favorite room. Especially when it's your very first nursery, it's just such a serene place to go and dream! I love that you've already been able to make your mark on it and I can't wait to see what art you hang in there for your little guy. Praying you can get your stuff soon, and that you experience some relief from all the more annoying little pregnancy feelings! You're GAW-jus, as always ♡

  6. How do you still manage to look adorable even when you say you haven't been feeling well? I just don't get it. ;-)

    Adorable pictures and I'm hoping that you post pictures of S's nursey soon. I'm dying to see how your lovely design plans come together. :-)

  11. I love that dresser you chose and I can't believe you've broken a sandal because of swollen feet. In the pictures, your legs look as fantastic as they always do. I wish I had your legs...I'm really looking forward seeing the finished nursery!

  12. We took a Bradley Method class with our oldest, and the instructor was also our Doula. I was so glad to have her there, and to have taken the course. It was such a help with natural labor. Also, I LOVE that dresser!

  24. The dresser is adorable! I'm approaching my 31st Week & we just recently got a changing table off of Craigslist. Are you guys painting your nursery? I think we are going to try to... But we will see how that goes. I can barely bend over as is.

    1. I think we'll leave the walls white. I love bright white walls with lots of color in the rest of the decor. I can't imagine painting a whole room in this state! Hope you find the perfect color! :)

    2. I think we found one! It's a light blue. We are trying to do Dr. Suess theme, so I'm hoping I can make the colorfulness of Dr. Suess pop out in the bedding & decor. (This is my first time painting/decorating a room.)
