Weekly Update

I feel like we are rounding third and headed for home. This weekend we will hit 30 weeks! Which means anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks until we get to meet James and Mattie Rose. I have began to enter panic mode, trying to make sure everything is as ready as possible. We are still waiting on our bedding to be finished, but the curtains are hung and look fantastic!

The nursery is a work in a progress. I didn't want to decorate the walls yet until everything else was in place, so it is still rather bare, but good things are coming!

There is another window just to the left of this picture. I am still on the hunt for a short, but long dresser to go in between the windows for some more storage. Two babies take up A LOT of room! And I am thinking of switching the white rug out for a dark gray one to ground the room. Their bedding is just a bold and full of pattern as the curtains.

Another shot of the room. To the right of this picture is another long wall where I have a long dresser that will also be used as their changing table. THAT CHAIR! Can we say comfortable?! That big armoire used to be our coat closet (old houses equal no closet space) and has now become their closet. I just hung another rack inside and they each have a "closet" for their nice clothes. :)

As more comes together, I'll post some more pictures....

This weekend starts a 3-week run of baby showers and I cannot wait! I am just beside myself knowing how many people Kyle and I have in our lives who love us and love our babies and get excited about the excitement in our lives! If I think about it too long, I start crying. Which I'm sure will happen at least once during each shower.

This week has been physically challenging for me. Sleeping like a rock has now been replaced with constant position changes, trips to the bathroom, and horrendous heartburn. Standing at work all day is impossible, and I am finding myself scooting around on stools quite a bit. And I have never had such awful heel pain. Sorry, I just needed to get that off my chest. HOWEVER... They are constantly moving, which in my mind means everything is going great with them! And if I have to be uncomfortable for the next few weeks for them to grow and get big, then so be it. I am just constantly praying against pre-term labor! Feel free to join me!

Here is a quick pic of our 29-week belly. Proof of exhaustion after a long day at work. My poor husband....

Several weeks ago, Kyle and I had some maternity shots taken by the beautiful, talented, and ridiculously cool Lisa Mac (McAdoo). I am so awkward in front of a camera where I have to "pose." But she was great at making it such a relaxed atmosphere and making me feel great about my body that is no longer my own. I cannot wait for James and Mattie Rose to meet her and let her take their pictures as they grow up! We will definitely be using her as long as we live in Memphis, and if for some reason we move, we will just have to drive back to see her! She is just that great!

Here are just a few of the sneak peeks she let us see...

Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!!!! More than half-way there. Finish strong!
