Holy smokes! Its been forever and a freaking day since I have updated my blog. Thanks for all the sweet little notes and such from everyone who was worried about my where abouts...It has been extremely busy. I am so behind. I have had funny little things I wanted to post about, I wanted to get up a invite about my shower this last Saturday, my very handsome little brother turned 17!(I can't believe how grown up he is, I love him tons. He will be a great uncle.), I am behind on like 3 different fun tags that I really want to do... I will try and get caught up in the next couple days.
No I have not had my big D-day yet. I go to my doctor tomorrow and we will see what he says. I am so excited to be going and terrified at the same time! I am excited because I have been cramping more often lately and my tummy is super tight. My back also kills! But on a good not, my heartburn/acid reflux nonsense has calmed down quite a bit. However the same day it stopped I got that pins and needles feeling all down my arms to my finger tips. My arms and hands are half way asleep almost all day, and its super hard to grab things or write for too long... lovely trade up. Maybe it means he has dropped a little though? Who knows? Tomorrow we will find out. He was in the high 5's in weight last time I went so I am expecting him to be AT LEAST 6 lb 5 oz or something... I think I will be delivering a tank... At this checkup it is the whole check, check... the strep culture I'm not worried about but the whole seeing how dilated I am, if I am effaced and where the baby’s head is makes me EXTREMELY nervous. I heard it hurts pretty bad and is nowhere near fun... not that delivery is gonna be a blast, but I just think about things too much and now this Dr. check up thing is a little scary. I’ll let you know how everything is going.
I had my shower on Saturday. It was so fun. I really appreciate everyone that came by to show their love and support for me and the start of my new little family! Thanks so much to everyone! I got a hecka ton of cute clothes and some fun books that I’m super excited about, a much needed bath tub, hangers, and more fun clothes and blankets. I was so grateful friends and family ventured over to my mom's in that yucky snow storm. It's pretty to look at, not so pretty to travel in, even if it is just for 5 min. My fabulous aunts and cousins made all these super yummy Christmas treats and made little Christmas plates for everyone that came. I'm so grateful for my family. They are so supportive and I don't know what I would do without them. I honestly have the best most talented, entertaining, loving, super sweet family ever! I love you guys thanks so much!
My sister in law Gena and brother in law Owen and my nephew Eli.
Cory and Eli. Eli is so stinkning cute. And that is "the" sleeper gown thing that Hayden will be wearing home from the hospital. It says HAMILTON on the back. We also got cute little BYU socks and cap that Cory is pretty excited to bring him home in.
Our nursery is pretty much set up for the most part. If Hayden were to come tomorrow we would be A-Ok. Crib is set up, clothes put away, etc. I still haven't decorated it yet, I would really, really like to before he gets here. Hopefully he won't resent me too much if I don't get to it before he is here. There are still a few things we need and want but it’s not a tragedy if we don't have them all before he gets here. Like all the little baby products, baby wash, shampoo, powder, diaper rash cream, stuff like that I still need. I need little parts for my breast pump: shields, tubes, the little circle things... I would like a baby sling carrier thing, a bumbo chair, a diaper genie, a boppy nursing pillow, and ummm I don't know...things that would be nice but are nowhere near necessary. Oh and I really would like to get some stuff to teach him sign language stuff eventually. Thank goodness for the completion discount and what not on our babies 'r us registry!
Hayden's cute crib. It has a sweet drawer at the bottom. I love it.
The big day that there will be another new man in my life is getting so close! It could be tomorrow, next week...SOON! I feel so blessed and overwhelmed. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet :S I should probably get on that sooner than later, since I will be out of commission super soon. I love Christmas time and there has been so much going on that it doesn't even feel like Christmas really. It’s just been all baby to me. All our Christmas decor is now up and I’m trying to get into the spirit and just patiently wait for my other big day. I'm trying to distract myself by staying busy, and doing things besides eating a lot and sleeping and potty breaks and eating.... Any suggestions?
So now all this talk of eating has made me STARVING! Like I haven't eaten in weeks! Even though it was like an hour ago, no wonder why my son is already so big... I promise I will get caught up with my bloggage soon. I hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday season!
