How far along? 35 weeks (and four days) The pic is from a true 35 weeks:-)
Size of the baby? coconut (although on my phone it says honey dew- which seems much larger than a coconut!) And he should be around 5.25 lbs, and 18 inches!
Maternity Clothes? Yes, and they are starting to not cover my belly very well.
Gender? Boy! Bryce Thomas:-)
Movement? He seems to have kicked up his movements, and I can really feel some feets and elbows now.
Sleep? Ughhhh. My back has had its issues this past week. Sleep has not been so great. I have moved to the guest bedroom and added a heating pad. I pee any where from 2-6 times at night.
Cravings? Not so much this week as last week- but GRAPE KOOL-AID. it has by far been my most random and necessary craving. Hubby went on a special trip to get me some.
Symptoms? Sciatica, braxton hicks are much stronger, and general uncomfortableness has set in. Pretty much I am never comfortable. How short waisted women ever have more than one baby- I do not know!
Best Moment of the Week? I haven't been super great about doing these every week so I'll tell you about a few incidents over the past few weeks that stand out...
1. We took breastfeeding and birthing classes- which were super helpful and got both me and my husband super excited for Bryce to get here!
2. On the way to said birthing classes I was telling T a story about how the cord bank would take Bryce's cord blood because I was too far along. Well, later on in the trip I was giving him an example of pregnancy brain in which I told him about how I was talking to the cord blood lady and she asked me to spell my name. So I said Amy Jackson...she asked me to spell Jackson so I said...G-A-C-K-S-O-N. Then she asked- do you spell Amy the traditional way? In which I realized my spelling mistake and said oh-oops I didn't mean G I meant J- I get them mixed up sometimes. Well, shortly after is when she said I could be a donor. After telling T this pregnancy brain story- he goes- NO wonder they didn't want your cord blood. They probably thought you were a ra-tard (say it like Alan on The Hangover, I really do hate that word, but it seemed funny in this situation), and thought- oh no thanks! Anyway once my hubby pointed that out to me I peed my pants laughing at him so hard because he was probably right.
3. Getting a tour of the hospital. I am just so excited to have him. I hope he comes sooner rather than later!

3 Years??? hard to believe it has gone by so quickly!
|3 years ago!|
This was our last anniversary before babies, so we decided to take a quick getaway after our birthing class to Greensboro, NC. The Bed and Breakfast was fabulous and we pretty much use the word "Bumpas" for a lot of different things, and find it hysterical.
|After a restful nights sleep and a great breakfast!|
|Our exciting evening of picking out a new putter for Tee|
|In our room. My face is so swollen!|
|My cheese picture by the fire place:-)|
Tee has been such an amazing husband for the past 3 years, sure we've had our moments, but I haven't once doubted his love for me or mine for him. For us so much of our successful relationship was thanks to good timing. He still makes me laugh until I almost pee my pants, makes my heart flutter when he ignores a bad mood of mine, and I melt when I see how much he loves on our little girl, Sadie. I can't wait to fall in love with him as a dad here in a few weeks and as we grow our family. We've always said, we're not perfect, but we're perfect for each other, and that's the truth!

I am not huge on saving every card I ever get. Usually if it something super sweet written in them, or funny, I save it read over it once more at a later date just to remember, then toss it. However, I saved all the cards from my wedding and planned on doing the same with Bryce's shower cards because those are extra special times. Well, thank you pinterest for a great idea that I did in less than half an hour!
|My final product!|
|So easy and organized!|
Supplies I used:
Card Stock (although I think the original pinner used a thicker material
Different decorations for cover
I just used the tack to poke a whole in the top left corner of all of the cards (I lined them up so the top edge and side edge matched the previous card). Once all of the cards were punched, I measured my front and back cover and cut them out. Then decorated the covers. I threaded the wire through the front cover, then all of the cards, then the back cover. Twisted it so it had a wring so I could hang it on a hook if I wanted to. I took thick ribbon wrapped it around the whole "book" so that the two loose ends were out to the right (different than the example book I coped) and hot glued into place on front cover, and then back cover, let cool and then tied the bow to the side. That's it!
I can't wait to make one with all of my wedding cards! I just have to find them:-)

My baby shower was this past weekend, and I didn't whip my camera out until the very end:-( But I did run around and try to catch some of the details that went into decorating for the shower- the ladies in charge did an amazing job, and I felt so special! The theme was The Birds and the Bees with a twist on the bees aspect.
