More About Baby


Remember this shot? I wanted to keep up the tradition, so on Valentine's Day, I made Jeff do a photo-shoot with me. It wasn't the ideal situation because we had to use the self-timer, so a lot of shots I wanted to do, just wouldn't work.

However, I LOVE the results of our little photo-shoot. Don't we look so happy with my belly? It makes me laugh, but it's because our little boy is in there, and we love him so much already.


As for me, when this shot was taken I was at 35 weeks, and am now at 36. (Less than one month to go!) Here are some observations of this pregnancy as of late:

+ I crave sweets all.the.time. I'm not joking. It HAS become a joke though.

+ I wake up a lot during the night with the need to shift pillows, and how I'm lying.

+ Baby moves all the time, and I love feeling his different movements. It always makes me smile.

+ Bending over is pretty difficult. I feel like an old woman most of the time.

+ Heartburn? It still hasn't left me alone. But, thank you to a tip in my comment section (Thank you Marta!) Tums Smoothies are thee best remedy.

+ Baby's room is almost complete! I just need to order this mobile, and we're set. (Okay- and, I still need to organize the room, Jeff needs to paint a couple things, but after a trip to Ikea over the weekend, we're good with the furniture.)

+ We're getting so excited to see our little guy. Just the other day Jeff and I were wondering what his laugh would sound like. I cannot wait to find out.

+ My little sister welcomed her baby boy just 11 days ago. I'm sort of obsessed with her little boy because I cannot believe how perfect he is. And, it's so amazing to see her transition into a mother overnight.

+ Can you tell we're excited? We truly are.
