I Made a Garden!

Another weekend almost gone, but we have a crib to show for it! Baby’s room is well underway and ready for some show-and-tell! I’m eagerly awaiting the dresser and handmade crib bumper/skirt a la Grandma Deb. It’s hard to put stuff away when it’s all so cute. I wish it could be displayed forever but unfortunately I still have a pile of things to shove into the closet somehow… baby E.E. is already very spoiled! Loved spending some time with my parents yesterday and looking forward to a visit from Nic’s parents this evening for a belated birthday celebration.¬† Here we go — week 38!...

Shower Me!

I cannot give enough thanks to friends and family for showing so much enthusiasm over this baby! Who knew opening presents could be so exhausting? It’s Thursday and I’ve finally recovered from the past 2 crazy weekends! I’m so thankful for all of the family and friends who’ve made me feel incredibly blessed with their words of kindness, prayers and gifts! I am truly humbled by your generosity! As I’m finishing out the 37th week I also give thanks for such a wonderful pregnancy because I’m still feeling great! This week my focus has been on organizing the awesome baby loot we’ve acquired and making room for the grand entrance...

Tick-Tock

Almost a mama! Let’s get down to business: this pregnancy is almost over! As September 4 gets closer every day I can’t help but wonder what God’s plan could be for this little person I’ve created (not on my own of course). What a wondrous thing to ponder…. a completely brand-new creature, unique in every way. I think it would be an understatement to say I’m anxious to meet her. That being said, I am completely reliant on using every single day until then to finish preparing for her arrival. I count on the fact that she couldn’t possibly come early as I am late for nearly everything; however, when...

E. E. Stockdale?

I’m happy to say things are really starting to come together! Baby showers are only a few weeks away and I can’t wait to see friends and family one last time before baby ‘E’ gets here! That’s right… I can say with 90% certainty that we’ve found the perfect name. Go ahead and guess all day long what the initials stand for… this is the one thing we’ve decided to keep secret until she finally arrives. Suspenseful, huh? I’m waiting to do the bulk of my shopping until after the baby showers so hopefully I’m still feeling up to the challenge that late in the game. I’m not anticipating any...

Hallelujah, holy shit!

Even my favorite chair wasn’t comfy this week… While my dreams were nightmare-free the past several nights (huge accomplishment), I still seemed to have a nightmare of a week. Nothing was right… I pulled through to the end only to find myself at work on a Saturday. You’re probably wondering how that could be so bad since I’m sitting here blogging and drinking a vanilla chai, but the idea of sitting at my desk in the dark ‘working’ when I could be at home cuddling with my dog on the couch is very upsetting. I’ve been tested more times in the past week than I care to discuss but I...
