What to wear

Today Baby S is 38 weeks old! Can you believe it? Seems like just yesterday we saw "two bars" on the HPT. Now, we are planning for childbirth in exactly 7 days. How quickly the time has gone.

At this weeks appointment, the doctor confirmed baby's position is unchanged and estimated weight should be around 7 pounds. Since both mommy and daddy were tiny babies, I assumed this little one would be, too. Apparently not so. While Baby S isn't likely to exceed 8 pounds, 7 and a bit is still nice and healthy, I think.

This doesn't really help us make a clear decision on coming home outfits for the LO. We bought a handful of items is two sizes - newborn and 0-3 months. We're holding off on washing them until we know whether a dress is needed or one of the absolutely adorable jumpers for boys.

Of course, it really doesn't matter what baby wears. We just look forward to bringing our bundle of blessings home.

Room Service

So, after weeks of planning, shopping, and then days upon days of procrastinating, Baby S' nursery is finally ready. Well, 99.9 percent ready. Just need to do a little laundry and set up the changing station. Other than that, here's the finished product.

Comfy in there

Today was our 36 week ultrasound and Baby S was in the same comfortable position. Though there has been a lot of shifting in the tummy since our last peek, he or she has not 'flipped' and is still resting peacefully on the left side, curled up with the head well above mommy's belly button.

There are greater risks when moms go into labor and baby is breech, so with about 30 days to go, the doctor went ahead and scheduled a c-section to ensure that we'll have a surgical suite just in case the baby doesn't turn before we reach the 39 week mark. So, we have a tentative birth date for Baby S - May 28. We shall see.

Other than that, everything is going very well. We could see that Daddy's high, sculpted cheekbones are one trait that has already been passed down. Can't wait to kiss on those chubby cheeks! Also, the baby's heart beat today was at 130 and the weight was 5.97 pounds. So, looks like when our Blessed Little One arrives we'll be holding at least 6 pounds of total cuteness!

God is SO good!

See! Doesn't it look all comfy, cozy in there? This is one of my favorite pics taken by a super sweet friend and talented photographer, Shelli Couch. Check out the rest of her creative works on her website.
