baby update: 38 weeks

Rate This Recipe

I’m really, REALLY hoping that this is my last update, but I am also fully aware that it probably won’t be. Not happy about it, but fully aware.

At this point, we are SO excited to meet this baby (and find out if it is a boy or a girl, and find out if it has red hair, and squeeze it constantly!) that the thought of a few more weeks is a littleΒ brutal. At the same time, since we’re pretty much ready for the baby (I just need to press “BUY” on that last amazon order) so I’m trying to take advantage of these last few weeks and fill them with fun things like dates and movies and restaurants and friends. Oh, and lots of rest because I’m feeling kind of exhausted.

Nursery Pics: This room is so tiny that it was a little hard to get good photos, but I wanted to give you a little idea of what it looks like! We kept things really simple with black and white and a few pops of color with the DIY mobile and some brighter sheets and changing pad covers. I’d like to find another spot for the humidifier as it takes up a lot of room on the changing table that I think we’ll want for other items but at this point I’m waiting until we’re using this room to see what rearranging needs to happen. I didn’t want a chair in the room at first (again, it’s tiny!) but I think it will be really nice to have in there for nighttime feedings and reading at bedtime.

      Do you have barn yard too? I kind of wanted to go with the safari animals, but we figured the baby needs to learn about the animals native to Wisconsin. πŸ™‚

    You are just adorable! I can’t wait to see a post about your baby! Interesting about the dates (I saw the link in the comments). My bf’s mom gave me about 10lbs of dates (literally, 10 lbs, in the freezer) and I’ve been eating dates like crazy. Good to know for the far off future πŸ˜€

    You look adorable. I remember quite vividly what those last few weeks were like and I don’t envy you. I like instant gratification so it was especially hard for me. I would plan to put the humidifier in a closet and replace it with a cute basket/bin of diaper stuff. You won’t want to open a drawer to get that stuff when you have a squirmy crying baby. Also, totally feel free to ignore me because you are about to get loads of unsolicited advice and it is good to learn to ignore it πŸ˜‰
