She's arrived!!

Madeline Rose arrived on Sunday, April 21st, 12 long days late, at 5:15am. She was 8 lbs 11 oz and 21 inches long. She's absolutely beautiful and so far is a really great baby! We are so smitten!

Waiting on baby...

Well folks. 41 weeks has arrived... 7 days overdue. Welcome to my pity party of one! Although it's apparently common for first time mothers to go about a week late, I am still really down in the dumps about it. I have been in pain since about 15/16 weeks, my hips have been hurting a lot during sleep. Now, my feet are cramping, my hips, back, and knees all hurt pretty much all of the time.

So what do I do when I'm down in the dumps, and have been trapped in the house for a while? Redecorate of course! I have been thinking that our yellow bedspread was too pale and our bedroom needed something a bit brighter. I have been coveting this aqua bedspread for a few weeks, maybe even months. It's SO pretty. I made the trip out yesterday and I couldn't believe they still had one, so I took that as a sign that I definitely needed to buy it :)

Here's our little master bedroom makeover:

If this baby takes much longer to come I am going to have to go shopping again. I wonder what I could redecorate next? I did see an awesome ottoman while I was at Home Sense, but I couldn't find a price on it, so I didn't bother. It would look perfect in our new, bright bedroom! It was in the clearance section so maybe I will go back and see how much it was :)

Bump photo outtakes...


I thought it might be fun to share some outtakes from our weeks of bump photo taking (I'm not including the weeks where I was taking my fabulous bathroom self portraits!). My husband has sure caught some gems...

40 Weeks!

Well, friends, my due date has come and gone, so I am officially overdue. I figured this would happen, since according to my What To Expect ap, 50% of pregnancies go past 40 weeks. I guess I was hoping to be part of the lucky 50% and have this baby sometime between 39 and 40 weeks. I am officially extremely cranky, and I shouldn't interact with anyone but my husband at this point! Leroy is an ok companion too, because he doesn't talk back or complain that I am complaining too much... This is what he's been up to every day since I have been on maternity leave:
He's a pretty lazy animal. I hope he keeps this up once the baby is here!! This week I have been working on all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls. I am almost done, I will be really sad if I finish before the baby comes because I didn't expect that. I've been reading too, I figure I might not get a chance to read too much soon, although maybe during feedings? Anyhow, that's about it for now. I took my bump picture but I am facing the wrong way, oops.

39 Weeks!

My maternity leave is well on its way... Almost a week in! No baby yet. I'm cranky and uncomfortable. That's about it...
