Home Tour {the nursery & hall bath!}

Putting Caroline's nursery together was so much fun! I organized and reorganized her things probably at least 15 times. I had gathered prints and decor pieces over time and also used some things that were decorations at her showers - loved having those details included in her room! One afternoon I started hanging things and all of a sudden it felt complete and ready for her. It was fun seeing how things I'd gotten over a few months all came together to create her room. A similar thing happened with her bathroom - I hadn't really planned on decorating her bathroom or getting it fixed up but it seemed overnight it was done too! Welcome to Caroline's room...


  


 


At our shower in Shreveport they had Matt and I's baby pictures displayed - they will probably be replaced with pictures of Caroline but I think its a sweet thing to have in her room to start with :)









  and of course big sister was there and while she is our only baby here she got in on the home tour photoshoot again ;)



 a few peeks into her closet:







and her dresser drawers:

You might be 8 1/2 months pregnant if....

you are always looking for the closest parking spot to any store.

everyone in public asks you when you are due.

you can no longer clean the mirrors in the bathroom because your belly is in the way. 

your dad tells you not to call him unless you are in labor.

you are constantly getting stains on your clothes because your belly catches everything.

you go out in public and don't care one itoa about how you look or how mismatched your outfit is.

you go between being so excited to meet your little girl and can't wait for her to arrive to being completely freaked out and feeling anxious and unprepared.

you don't meal plan much or buy many groceries because you aren't sure if you'll be able to use them or not.

you have to rest after doing a chore because you get winded easily.

you have to give a warning text of "everything is fine! just call me back when you can" to your family if they miss your call.

your friends are asking if the baby has come and are checking in on you lots.

you have nothing scheduled for the next few weeks because you aren't sure what your life is going to look like or when this baby is going to arrive.

Home Tour {office}

When we were looking for houses one of the things Matt really wanted was a dedicated office space. I agreed that he needed his own space mainly because his deer and turkey feathers needed a place to call home ;) The office is full of light and I love the French doors. Baylor loves to curl up on the chair in his office and wait for him to get home! He offices out of the house now but still enjoys having a place to do work when he comes home straight from a meeting or just taking care of general bills and what not. Anyways, here is the home office!

Bumpdate: 38 1/2 weeks

again - much of this is the same as the last one but for documentation sake and the fact that there are only a few of these left, here's your weekly bumpdate ;)  



How Far Along: 38 1/2 weeks down, ONE AND A HALF to go!

Size of baby: 19-22 inches, 6 pounds 12 oz, size of a pumpkin
 
Maternity Clothes: All day, every day! I feel like I'm repeating the same outfits over and over based on what is more comfortable at this point. 
 
Gender: GIRL! Caroline Elizabeth :)

Movement: Yep! More rolls than kicks these days.

Sleep:  Sleep is okay - just having to get up two or three times a night for a bathroom break.

What I miss: Not being as big as a house ;)

Food Cravings: Sweets and fruit. Like always. And having food adhd - see a cupcake, yep that sounds good. Mexican? Yes please. Italian - why not!

Food Aversions: Nothing really - so thankful for that this whole pregnancy.

Symptoms: Can't complain! Feeling good just uncomfortable. 

Best moment of the week: After Saturday night's big trip to the hospital for decreased movement every little bump, kick, and roll has been the best this week. So thankful for this little girl and getting to feel her move. Also seeing how much God loves our little girl more than we ever possibly could and how perfectly He is working out the details of her arrival!

What I’m looking forward to: August - due date month!!!
