I'm scheduled to be induced tomorrow, the hospital will call us sometime between 5:30 and 7 am tomorrow morning to tell us when to come in. They will either say "come now", or give us a time later in the day to come.
So, I figure this is my last chance to blog before he comes. I've been totally slacking on blogging this pregnancy. With Ellie, I kept really up to date on how things were going. Not so this time, I imagine having a crazy 1 1/2 year old has something to do with it :)
Anyway, here are a few things I wanted to blog about.
First of all, I'm rather proud of myself. I'm not a very great seamstress at all, but I made Aiden a bunch of blankets and burp cloths! Granted, they are just plain old recieving blankets and really all the sewing they require is a straight line, but still! They turned out cute. Some of the burp cloths I sewed and some I ended up doing crochet edges on. That was another big accomplishment for me, I've never crocheted anything in my life. My mom made these awesome burp cloths for Ellie when she was born, and they're my favorite ones, so I wanted some for Aiden. She taught me how, and low and behold, I managed to make some myself. Here's a picture of most of the stuff I made
So for a while, we were thinking we'd put Aiden in our room for several months, and then as he got older move his crib in to share Ellie's room. After a bit of re-thinking, we decided to change our plans. Aiden is actually now going to take over half of the office as his room. It's a tight fit, but for several reasons it's going to work out better for us. We rearranged the room over Christmas break, got rid of a bunch of stuff, put up the crib, completely emptied out the closet and filled it with a nightstand and rocking chair, and tada! Now Aiden has his own room.......okay, not really......but he's not sharing with Ellie. Here are a few pictures, it's nothing too exciting and it's DEFINITELY mismatched but for the space we have, it's going to work out great.
(and don't worry, the bins aren't as pink as they look!)
And the rocking chair wasn't in the closet yet when we took this, but it is now and the rock-and-play that's folded up isn't. The nightstand we've actually been using in our living room before now, and I've been meaning to paint it white forever. I never got it done though, but I came home from Young Women's one night to find it painted by my dear husband! What a sweetie! It looks SO much better now.
Lastly, I haven't really taken any pregnancy pictures along the way, but I figure I better take at least one here at the end. So this is me today, at 39 weeks exactly. The day before I go in to be induced. I got way bigger this time around than with Ellie. It was definitely nice the first time around not to be as big, but I guess you don't realize your blessings sometimes without contrast! Now I realize how lucky I was last time :)
(this was me last time at 39 weeks)
I think that's it! Here goes another great adventure!
