Jumped on the bandwagon

Being put to good use already!


I had a horrible time with some Mod Podge before so I think I redeemed myself!I think they turned out pretty cute!! I also papered the back of them all so that I can turn them around and use for the next sizes ;O)

Heating pad please.

I am feeling like this:

At this point I am thankful there is only 1 in there ;o)

The past couple of days have been tough. Baby girl is lodged up in my ribs and has decided to stay there. That means sitting up straight=not so comfy. Walking/standing is good for not feeling the rib pressure but then my back is screaming! I am in love with my heating pad for the pain in my back and am even more in love with naps. Speaking of which it is time for one.

Take a stab.


Take a stab at what that gunk is all over my floor.

If you guessed an entire brand new bottle of 196 load laundry detergent you are right on the money!!

UGH only this would happen to me at 7 1/2 months pregnant. Now just add a bunch of towels and a half assed wipe for the clean up. This one is going to need hubby's help.

30 Weeks!!



Squash Week 2 of 4

Your Baby
Big news for baby's brain this week: It's starting to wrinkle and fold and looks like something that grew in the back of your fridge. This is due to the rapid growth of your little genius's brain cells. Other highlights this week:

Fingernails and toenails are finally finished—causing his or her parents great fear and anguish the first time they try to cut those little daggers (it gets easier, we promise)! Plus, the bone marrow is completely in charge of red-blood-cell production now. Trust us, this is a good thing.

Baby is starting to shed his lanugo—the downy hair that was covering his skin. Now that he's chubbier and better able to regulate his body temp, he doesn't need to sport a fur coat 24/7.

"I spy an umbilical cord and the inside of my mom's uterus!" When your baby is awake, his eyes are now wide open and he's whittling away the hours looking around, checking out his rather dark, limited environs.

Your baby hasn't gained much weight or height this week, as most of his energy's been channeled to the brain. She weighs about 3 pounds and is approximately 15.5 inches long, about the size of London, not the city, Britney Spears' Yorkie terrier. Of course your baby is less hairy and way cuter!
