Project 365: Day 52

I finally finished the burp cloths! Now they are sitting nice and pretty on Boogie’s shelf 😀
And I never did share pictures of Boogie’s diapers all washed and ready in her drawers!
The drawers are both mixed…

 The white ones are Econobums, the pink ones you see in the picture below are Flips, and the rest in both drawers in multiple colors and prints are Kawaii’s… which are almost exactly like the diapers I’m going to order in the spring called Go Green Pocket Diapers!

 Here’s the drawer of extra inserts – these are Econobum prefolds and Kawaii Bamboo Inserts.

 These are the Kawaii Microfiber and Flip Microfiber inserts…

And that’s it for today 😀 I’m super primo cleaning mode and sat down long enough to share these pics! Back to organizing and cleaning!

Project 365: Day 50

I finally got to a point where I couldn’t wear my wedding band  and engagement ring anymore 🙁 A lot of people told me to just wear them on a chain around my neck, but that made me a little nervous. What if the chain broke and I lost those rings? Justin worked hard to buy those rings for me! So, J and I searched high and low for a ring that I liked… and that fit. I have fat fingers to begin with so that was a bit of a challenge considering that my hands swell depending on the temperature and if I’ve done a lot with my hands during the day. I had to buy a ring a whole size up… so sometimes it’s a little lose, and other times it’s perfect! We finally found a ring I liked at a little shop in town and I was super relieved. I couldn’t just not wear anything on my finger, it felt naked and I freaked every time I realized my rings were missing… even though they are in a safe place!
Definitely  not a typical wedding band or even engagement ring… but I like it. I will probably hold on to it for Boogie since it’s what I’ll be wearing until my body gets back to normal after having her. I might even get a new one for my next pregnancy. Perhaps a new tradition?
Today was a pretty uneventful day in the our household. I didn’t do much this morning except sleep in, and stay under the covers watching movies all morning. My hips are spreading and they’re really painful right now… and no matter what I do I hurt. Atleast when I’m lying down I can find a tiny bit of relief. This evening we went to my inlaws and cooked dinner (well… J cooked dinner LOL!)… my favorite! Wings, baked french fries and green beans. YUMMO! Needless to say, I was a very very happy pregnant lady 😀
Boogie is doing well, she’s definitely running out of room however. Her movements are much stronger and she makes me rather uncomfortable sometimes. This morning she made herself comfortable on my right side and stayed that way for over an hour! My belly was totally lopsided! This evening she’s up between my ribs, and I’m pretty sure her butt is right there against the front of my stomach. I thought I was having a Braxton Hicks contraction because of how hard it felt…. until I realized it wasn’t just firm, it was moving. So yea… Boogie is enjoying stretching mommy’s tummy out!
Tomorrow I’m hoping my mom will be feeling better (her students shared their sicky germs) so that she can take a “family” picture of us for our Christmas cards! You may have seen my post a few days ago about Shutterfly! I received my code to get 50 free cards after writing my post, so now I just need to design them and pay shipping and handling so that we can mail them out! Even more exciting than that…. I’m 34 weeks tomorrow! Boogie could be here within a month! How crazy is that?!?!? I love being pregnant, but this pregnancy has definately been a bit miserable, so I will be SUPER excited for Boogie to finally get here and to have my body back! I will miss those kicks and nudges and knowing that she’s protected in my womb… BUT it would be nice to be able to reach to shave my own legs and tie my own shoes…. 😉

Project 365: Day 30

Boogie’s swing…

My old treasure box… except mom redid it for Miss Boogie 🙂

We also went on a baby shopping spree today…. got everything but crib sheet and mattress pads… Janelle I’ll tell you about that later lol. So everything is done and put away in Boogie’s room! We also decided to just buy a bassinet for our bedroom and wait to buy a pack n play. One, the bassinet will take up less room, two, J was freaking out about making such a large purchase, and three, she can’t use the pack n play until she’s older and since the pack-n-play w/the bassinet took up so much room we decided we could buy that in the spring. The end. Yeesh.
