Snapshots from life lately...
I am just taking one class right now, so I finally feel like I have some spare time to really get ready for my impending due date! So far, that has meant reading as much as I can get my hands on. I'm currently reading "Bringing up Girls," "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth," and "What to Expect the First Year," all at the same time. It has been nice to sit on the front porch and enjoy the beautiful weather while I read.
Our church had a Night of Worship a couple weeks ago. I can never get a good picture of Luke behind his drum shield! But anyway, it was such a great night!
The day after that was my mom's birthday. She, my sister, and I spent the day out to celebrate. We went to a vegan restaurant since my sister has been eating vegan (The Flaming Ice Cube), we shopped, saw a chick flick (Safe Haven...it was so good!), enjoyed some Menchies, and then stopped at a greenhouse on the way home. It was such a fun day spent with my mom and sister, and I wish we could spend more together like that!
I got the sweetest package in the mail from Callie! Look at these adorable outfits for Scarlett! I can't wait to dress her in them. Callie has been such a good friend and a great person to talk to as I was going through our fertility struggles. I am so thankful for her encouraging words and prayers!
I made a little canvas to hang above Scarlett's dresser this week. The nursery is almost finished! Curtains and a glider are the only things that are missing at this point. Once I get it all together I'm sure I'll do a whole nursery post.
...And of course a photo dump post would not be complete without a picture of my cats!
Gabby has been extra cuddly with me lately. I swear, it's almost like she knows I'm 7.5 months pregnant. She practically knocks me over when I walk in the door as she rubs against my leg, happy to see me, and if Luke's not home, she follows me everywhere and wants to cuddle as soon as I sit or lay down. However, as soon as Luke gets home, I'm basically chopped liver to her. I'm afraid Luke is and will always be her favorite. Regardless, I enjoy our little naps together during this 3rd trimester fatigue when he's not home!
...When Luke gets home and Gabby forgets about me, at least I have Ellie who basically acts like my shadow. I caught her mid-yawn the other day. I think cat yawns are pretty much the cutest things in the world.
