Keep in mind these are only SOME of her clothes. Thanks to her great aunt she will be the best dressed baby EVERY day of the week!
I finally finished painting the sign to hang in her room. The longest part was finding what quote and font I wanted to use and how was I going to get it on the board. I ended up doing it freehand and it turned out ADORABLE! Cowboy made it out of old wooden pallets.
In other nursery news, mama and I painted the dresser and converted the full bed into a day bed. It's amazing how much bigger the room looks! We repainted the dresser white then added some "distressed" effects. Now we want to distress everything we have! The room is really coming together. All there is left to do is build the closet shelves. It's sort of a busy time on the farm with cutting/raking/baling hay, building catch pens, working the last of the cows, etc. There is always something to do! When he gets a free weekend the closets will be done. As soon as I get my camera back I am going to take real pictures.
After this week the busy time starts! We have 2 doctor appointments next week and a baby shower Saturday. Starting May 19th we have 6 weddings in a row. That's on top of everything else we have going on: Cowboy's baseball practices/games, Emily's wedding festivities, showers,etc. It's never ending. July is WIDE OPEN though and it will stay that way :) The first of August is pretty busy as well but I will be preoccupied then!
Week 27 isn't much different than 26... It's hard to believe this is the last week of the 2nd trimester. I exercised for the first time in months Saturday and am still sore today. The whole time Brinkley and I were walking I was asking myself, "Why did I not start doing this sooner?" I went ALL day Saturday with mama to different baby stores and finishing up registering along with painting the dresser so I was pretty tired Sunday. It takes a while to bounce back and I guess I just don't realize I can't go like I used to. I have ZERO core strength anymore. I hoist myself off the couch and rolling over is a full body effort. I can't imagine getting any larger but I know I have a ways to go. Other than the physical aspects the emotional part has set in as well. My temper is much shorter and it doesn't take much to make me cry lol I'll be glad when hormones quit running my life!
A co-worker asked me today how much longer I had and I told her 13 weeks. She said, "Really!?" Even though it's still 3 months away it has flown by. I feel like I just started telling people I'm pregnant. As bad as I want it to be here I am trying to enjoy every moment of being pregnant. It's a special time with just me and Brantley. It just seems so surreal even feeling her move around all the time that there is a human in there! What an amazing blessing. I pray and thank God for her every day.
