I'm almost ready...

These days I've been in project overdrive! The reality of how fast Q's due date is approaching I believe has finally sunk in ha! While most of the projects can't be revealed just yet (they have his name on them!), there was one that I just finished that I can't wait to show off. 

I finished Q's coming home outfit! I made him an orange corduroy romper embroidered with a tiger paw and his name. I covered his name with a piece of newspaper so I could show yall the outfit. I'm so so happy with how it turned out especially since I didn't have a pattern. That's right, I made this one completely on my own! 

The shoulder straps have simple white buttons and the bottom has snaps for easy diaper changing. I plan on pairing it with just a simple long sleeve onesie and white socks. Our little tiger will look adorable!

meeting miss abigail reese

On Tuesday, October 25th at 4:52pm one of my really good friends Allison gave birth to her beautiful baby girl Abigail Reese. I couldn't be happier for Allison and Randy. Their little bundle of joy is absolutely precious and gorgeous as well! 

Wednesday the hubs and I went to visit the Hodge family at the hospital. Of course I got to hold the sweet little bundle and little she is! Abigail was only 6lbs 13oz and 19" long...teeny!

I can't wait for all the future play dates between Abigail and Q. I'm also very excited to have Allison during this whole pregnancy/labor/new mommy stage in my life. It's been wonderful having someone to talk with, ask questions, and share stories. We have many new adventures ahead of us!

bump and baby update: 37 weeks

This past Wednesday I had my 37 week check up. Q was wiggling around as usual and had a strong heartbeat. When it came time for the doctor to measure my stomach, I was a little on the small side. He decided to schedule me for an ultrasound to make sure everything was fine.

Even though you tell yourself over and over that the doctor is just being cautious, those awful little thoughts creep into your head. I was worried that I would hear either "we're putting you on bed rest" or "we're going to induce you" and neither sounded very fun.

Thursday I had the ultrasound and luckily everything looks just perfect. Q measured 6 lbs and 7 oz which puts him in the 54th percentile. The doctor told me I'm just small so that is my new normal. I was so relieved!

I think everyone is a little more ready for Q to make his arrival than I am and that includes the hubs! He's ready to try every old wives tale and trick in the book to get Q out. I just haven't hit that stage yet. While I still don't like being pregnant, I'm not dying to go into labor. Truthfully, I'm scared! I know it's going to happen eventually, but why rush it?

the rest of the maternity pictures

I've been working on the nursery trying my best to finish up all the projects before Q makes his arrival. I really want to do a big reveal when everything is done though, so you can't see just yet. To tide you over, below are the rest of a maternity pictures. I am in love!
