Greetings my friends! I'm trying so hard to be a good little blogger.
I have had better times, I have had worse times...
but I'm only a few days from my last post, so it's not too shabby.
I'm still pregnant. I feel like I'm about 112 months along now. In reality I'm 37 weeks.
But I feel like that should read 37 weeks*
(*I make humongous baby boys and they are always born early).
I have called the on-call doctor two evenings this week.
Thursday I was sure we were going to the hospital to have baby Miles.
But instead, I went to bed.
And woke thankful my water didn't break on our Vera Wang mattress.
(I was not so lucky when Carson began to make his way into the world.)
I am starting to get nervous that I am going to have my third baby Little Green Notebook style.
So anyhow, we're still awaiting sweet Miles's big day.
My youngest sister thinks he's coming this Wednesday, February 1st.
I'll keep checking in... and will definitely report when he gets here.
For now... a quick change of gears! Some things I am loving right now.
My Keurig! Oh Heavens to Betsy-- this thing is too good to be true.
KT doesn't drink coffee. I actually prefer a good Chai Tea Latte.
This single serve coffee maker that my parents gave me for Christmas has been making my mornings!
I've only tried the Chai K-Cups and the Dark Hot Chocolate K-Cups, but may branch out.
Do you have a favorite?
Also LOVING this Macaron scented candle by Voluspa. I love candles. I do.
I burn through them at a rapid pace. This one smells good enough to eat. You should treat yourself to it.
You may or may not have noticed that my cheeks have taken on a rosy-red situation in the past year
and a half. Something happened during my pregnancy with Slader and it's as if my skin
and my hormones never recovered. I had finally gotten some medication and creams from my dermatologist when I found out I was pregnant again and had to stop taking or using them all.
I decided to get a Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System with some Christmas money from Santa and am loving it.
I got the Mia in bright Poppy Red. I've only used it a handful of times, but already I love it.
And last but not least, my two sweet boys must sense change is coming because
they have been really sweet, really cuddly, and I have been soaking up their snuggles.
There's really nothing greater than holding my baby angels, getting open-mouth kisses from
my wild-man Slade, and having what is usually a little boy tornado happening around me
slow down and be still, quiet, and sweet for a moment. Loving these last few days with just my TWO boys.
Just a few snapshots from the past few days...
Slade's been climbing EVERY thing lately. Climbing onto tables, the back of the couch,
pushing ottomans and pillows around to give himself leverage. He raises his arms triumphantly
when he's reached the peak of whatever it is he's scaling. My personal favorite is when he's
on our coffee table and begins to perform a river dance as you see here in this picture!
As I mentioned, we were pretty sure we were going to the hospital on Thursday.
But before we could go, mama needed some rice krispy treats!
Carson was more than happy to help me whip up a batch!
We grabbed dinner at Freebirds the other night and without intention, the boys went in their slippers.
And so did their mom. I feel great about that decision.
It's basically spring time here. We skipped winter altogether which is beyond lame.
So, my boys and I took a little wagon walk the other day to enjoy the pretty weather.
And last but not least... on Saturday, some of my precious friends through a Monogram Shower
for me and baby Miles. It was so thoughtful and incredibly generous, given that this is my THIRD
baby boy. But admittedly, it was lots of fun and I was so excited to get a few new things JUST
for this sweet boy. I got my hostesses a sweet treat from The Hampton Popcorn Company.
I dare you not to lick your screen if you go read some of their popcorn flavors. YUM!
KT snapped a picture of me before I left... I looked at it and said, "OH MY! What's BIG and RED?!"
to which my precious 4 year old replied... "a firetruck!" Yes, indeed. Big mama firetruck!
Miles got so many precious gifts... a BIG thank you to my incredibly thoughtful friends
for coming to celebrate with us and for all of the darling things you blessed our little boy with.
My sister and brother-in-law gifted us with a rolling storage crate that he handmade the day before the shower.
How incredible is that? I have loved the Serena and Lily version but it's not only ridiculously priced, but really small. Jesse made this one and it's darling and super special. We love it!
... and last but not least, I love my sisters!
Makenzie, my youngest sister and her darling baby girl Harper came over to bring Miles
some sweet little monogrammed newborn hats on Thursday. She was nervous he was going
to be born and didn't want him to not have them for his hospital stay.
So Harps brought them over early for her cousin.
And my sister Megan and I were texting on Satuday night... and... well... have you seen Bridesmaids?
She's awesome. We laugh a lot.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I'll let you know if the under-carriage leg hike has any success is bringing Miles into the world.
