Beautiful, Beautiful May! (38 Weeks)

DenaMay 3, 2013

We made it to May! There were times over the course of this pregnancy when I thought we might never make it here — but here we are! And it’s as beautiful + magical + wonderful as I’d ever hoped it would be. Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, and my cervix is dilating. (One centimeter as of yesterday!) Little boy is most definitely on his way. My due date is about 12 days out and all of the signs are pointing in the right direction. I’ve been a busy bee myself finishing nursery details, assembling swings + strollers, and cleaning house. Of course I am tempering all of that work with time on the blanket relaxing in the sunshine and playing with my Bella-girl. I’m trying to give her lots of love + affection before baby gets here.

Yesterday we had some large, dead trees cut down in our yard. So Matthew left work early. He’s been working 12 hour shifts, 6 days a week for the past couple of weeks and it’s been brutal on him. He leaves the house at 5 am and doesn’t get home until 7:30 pm. So yesterday it was nice to have him home before the sun went down for a change. I made us some delicious icy drinks with strawberries, bananas, and blueberries. Vodka for him and none for me — boo. We enjoyed the gorgeous afternoon.

Happy Friday, loves! Have the most beautiful weekend. xo

      Oh thank you, doll! It is so exciting to be in the home stretch… nerve-wracking, yes… but mostly exciting!

    So excited for you! In other news, the puppy I’m bringing home in a week has the same coloring as Bella- black and tan with a white split face!
