Bumpdate: The Home Stretch!

With only 5 more weeks to go until my due date of July 7th my to-do list is growing larger than my belly!

Last week we were able to get another sneak peek at our lil’ Pickle and this time he actually cooperated! He was quite busy sucking on his hands the whole time and at one point even mimicked a window licker on the side of my uterus. Let’s hope he was just being a clown and doesn’t actually behave this way on the outside!

It’s been 3 weeks now since moving into our new home and I am surrounded by boxes! We haven’t even moved all of my stuff in and already I am feeling very overwhelmed by it all. Thank goodness I have lots of loving friends in the area who have offered to help over the next couple weeks or I might just lock myself in the bathroom!

Baby’s room is top priority now and I am hoping to get a quick coat of paint up on the walls this week before assembling the crib. I think once that is done it will really start to feel real. Then I can focus on packing my hospital bag and diaper bags – the sooner the better I think since over the past week I have seen 4 early babies arrive! I’m trying not to freak out and I really feel like he is going to stay put till at least his due date since he seems to be happy in there.

Plus I told him when he comes out he won’t be getting yummy ice cream for quite some time! 😀

In other news I spent last weekend at the lake with my girlfriends for one last hoo-rah! We had the most amazing weather and spend the majority of our days floating in the water. It was so nice to have great weather on top of great company. Especially after getting rained out last year!

Lunch break by the lake. Just took a refreshing dip now drying in the sun #love

I can hardly imagine what next year will be like with babies at the lake! My dear friend, Heidi is due 11 days after me with a boy as well and our lake neighbor’s daughter is having her second. I am really looking forward to the next generation of swimmers 🙂

Well, I better get back to work so I can wrap up on time. It’s a very special day for DC and I as today is the 1 year anniversary of our 1st date! Who’da thunk it a year ago that we would be starting our family by this time, but I am so happy and thankful we are and to have him in my life. It’s been a year of blessings and I can only hope that we continue to be so fortunate for years to come!
