35 Weeks and a Completed Nursery

Well, here I am at just shy of 35 weeks. I look at myself and wonder what I looked like before I was pregnant. I'm getting more excited, but some nerves are kicking in too. I'm most excited to meet him obviously, but I can't wait to see what he looks like too. I think I'm most nervous about the affect lack of sleep with have on both Mike and I. I know I can get mean and cranky when I'm running low on sleep. I'm worried that Mike and I are going to argue a lot. I want to breastfeed solely for about 3-4 weeks and then because of work start introducing a bottle a week at about 4 weeks. But I've also told myself that if breastfeeding becomes too much and I can't handle the stress or arguing with Mike, then I will stop. I want Mike and I to be a strong team and that won't happen if we're constantly at each other's throats. That's probably my biggest fear so far.

And....TA DA!!! The nursery is done!!

The crib and wall art monogram.

Book and Toy shelf with my lion lamp I had when I was little.

Crib Bedding.

Curtain, my old toy chest, pillow, and Mike's UK diaper bag.

Dresser and Hutch Unit.

I am so glad the nursery is done and I can check this off my list of things to do!! Make everything seem a bit more real to walk into the room and know it'll be occupied soon enough!

2 Years Today

Two years ago today I married my one and only. I know some people don't understand us, but I know I wouldn't have fit better with anyone else. (And I don't think he would have found someone to put up with his video game yelling like I do.) We're about to embark on the most important chapter of our lives as parents, and I think we'll make a great team!

Another picture update

I know it's only been a week since the last post, but I thought you'd enjoy another picture. Plus, I love my comfy dress and had to have a picture of it. Got it at Walmart for $7!!! My friends Jennifer and Ashley have the same one.

About 2 more months to go...

Well here I am at a little over 31 weeks. We've got about 2 months to go. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I will say I'm ready for baby Drew to be here, if for nothing else but to be comfortable again. This whole being pregnant in the summer thing stinks!! If we decide to get pregnant again, the baby is going to be due in like December. Baby Drew has upped his hiccuping to about 4 times a day and loves to get all his wiggles out right before bedtime. My biggest issue just like every other post is sleep. I've got about 3 different pillows I now sleep with propping something up on my body and every time I need to move I have to reorganize the pillows. And when there's myself, my husband, and two dogs in the bed...not always an easy task.

Drew's room is done being painted. I've ordered the furniture and waiting for it to arrive. I've also bought some blank canvas boards to paint for his room. Still looking up ideas for those. Everything is turning out exactly how I imagined it. My 1st baby shower is less than 2 weeks away and I'm so excited to see everyone!! I really hope the furniture is here before the shower so I can show off the nursery. I'm really proud of the work that Jennifer and I put into it. Once it's fully completed with furniture and everything, I'll be sure to post pictures!!
