I got to hang out with this sweetheart of a niece yesterday and her sister Delainey as well. She is the chunkiest, happiest little girl! 


Had another OB visit today. He says everything looks perfect and is measuring perfectly! I can't believe how close we're getting. I chose a pediatrician today and loved writing Jesse as the father on all the forms. He's gonna be the best dad! :)

Stockings

Thursday, November 29, 2012



 On the Graham side we give gifts to each person or a family gift for every family.  For Matt and Erin's family, I wanted to do something creative and found these stockings that I loved.  I was able to get a great deal on the fabric during the weekend sales after Thanksgiving and got started right away. It was nice to have a project to take up my time and give me something to do. The turned out a little bit narrow and full of imperfections, but I still think they're cute.  I gave the stockings to them early so they could put use them for Christmas, which allows me to blog about this project now instead of waiting!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Maternity clothes? Yep

Sleep: Lots of dreaming! And I'm getting more and more tired. 

Best moment this week: Thanksgiving and Jesse having a few days off of work. 

Miss Anything? I miss not being congested and having a cough. I swear this cough is going to put me into labor. 

Movement: He's slowing down now it seems.

Food cravings: Nope

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope

Gender: BOY

Labor Signs: Sharp hip pain. It is sooo annoying and painful.  

Symptoms: sore hips, congestion

Belly Button in or out? in

Baby Update: We had the ultrasound today to measure his size and make sure he is growing because I've been losing weight, which isn't good at this point. Baby is measuring perfectly for 33 weeks and RIGHT at the 50th percentile. Couldn't be more perfectly sized. Also, he's head down and facing my spine, so we're all set for delivery!

PS - Our ultrasound place is TERRIBLE with giving images. We got 5 identical face shots, 2 of his scrotum and one of his femur. I don't think I'll be saving the pictures of his boy parts in his baby book, so no clue why they chose those to give me. 

32 Weeks 3 Days!

Thursday, November 15, 2012


How far along? 32 Weeks 3 Days!

Total weight gain/loss: at starting weight. For those who hate me a little for this, I actually lost a pound in the past 2 weeks (had an OB appt today) and now I need to get an ultrasound to see if baby is not growing enough since I'm having a hard time gaining weight.  So it's not that great to not be getting bigger! :)

Maternity clothes? Yep

Sleep: Hip pain all night. 

Best moment this week: Baby Shower #2! Great food, awesome people!

Miss Anything? I'm sure I'll miss being in our own apartment instead of in my parents house. We move tomorrow. I'm ready to be settled, but I think I'll miss privacy.

Belly Button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Baby Shower # 1 Prep

Friday, November 2, 2012


My amazing double-sister-in-law Erin is throwing me my first baby shower tomorrow and graciously let me help out with some of the decor and the favors.  I really like being able to contribute!


Today I made nearly 40 Cake Pops to use as favors.  
It was very time and labor intensive and by the end I was dead tired and sore.  


I definitely feel like it was worth it and it was great seeing the finished product!


I also created this record BABY banner for tomorrow.  I love how it turned out and I think I'll use it in the nursery! I think it would be cute with his name instead of 'baby' but since we won't choose between "Harrison" and "Hendrix" until his birth, that will have to wait!
