WIWW- 38 weeks!

Whew, 38 weeks.  That means only "14 days left."  How crazy is that?!  Yes, I know what you're thinking and I've answered the question way too many times lately.... Yes, we are ready!  I am VERY ready to have my baby girl!  We've got everything ready to go for her; diapers, car seat, bed, clothes, the hospital bag....everything!  I think that I am emotionally ready for her, but am at the same time, really soaking in my last few days with Eleanor by myself, and nights with my husband by myself.  And even those afternoons by myself.  (I've been indulging in hot apple cider, chocolate, and girly as I can be.)  I'm enjoying my baths alone, my bras being dry, being able to sit without being in excruciating pain, and other really lovely things that I know I should enjoy now while I can.  38 weeks.  I just can't believe it.  I can't believe I'll be holding another daughter in just a few short days.  And something I have an even harder time believing is that my first daughter, Eleanor, will be turning two in 4 days.  Four.  She a little lady.  Anyway- I could ramble on and on about the wonders of being 38 weeks pregnant with an almost 2 year old, but I'll get on with the show. :)  I don't have many photos for you since nothing really fits right now, but trust me, I'm being imaginative about my clothing. :)  I am proud to say that I have yet to resort to my husbands dresser in this pregnancy!  I think I started at about 30 weeks last time around.  We had a maternity and E's 2 year photoshoot this past weekend, so there are a few photos from that.  Nothing fancy as far as clothes go, but it's my favorite outfit lately.  Anyway- happy Wednesday!

  5. You look fabulous! Now, totally unrelated,but do you know the name and type of paint on your walls??? And possibly the ceiling too???

  6. Thanks ladies for the compliments!!

    Kentuckymommy- I don't, I'm really sorry! We are renting this house from our friend and I know he got the paint at a discount paint store. It's a really cool color though- it is a gray/sage green and changes with light. The ceiling is actually an eggshell white with unfortunate sparkle spackle. :) Sorry for not having the name.

    Have a good day everyone!
