    Five on Friday

    Happy Friday, guys! I’m still pretty miserable with this awful cold and have been having contractions off and on since late last night. So let’s hope this weekend brings us a baby! Shae’s mom, step and sister will be over later today for a bbq rib dinner and we are so excited!

    ONE: On Saturday, Shae’s mom and little sister were supposed to come visit but his sister woke up really sick! Shae and I weren’t feeling too great either but since it was such a beautiful day, and our last weekend as a family of three, we decided to try and make the most of the day. We went to the store and bought some couch pillows, last minute things for the hospital and ended up leaving with 4 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!

    What My Toddler Eats in a Day

    Everlee is now 20 months old, and is still eating pretty similarly to how she was eating in our last post. But I figured I would share anyway!

    Breakfast: We still eat breakfast around 8am. This will vary depending on when she wakes up for the day, but it is pretty standard that she is up between 7:30-8am. One thing about this girl is that she likes to eat very first thing. I swear as soon as I get her out of her crib she is saying “mmmm good!” because she knows what is coming. It is hilarious but also if I don’t have breakfast ready before she wakes up, it can cause for a meltdown! Today she ate a scrambled egg, raspberries and a kodiak pancake with peanut butter.

    What’s in my Hospital Bag for Baby #2

    Considering I am 39 weeks, I figured I better round up my hospital bags and finish packing! I will have a few last minute things to grab on the way out, but we are ready to go now. I’m really crossing my fingers that this baby girl will come any day now. My first daughter, Everlee, was 11 days late and honestly it was far from fun. I have cut A LOT out to my hospital bags compared to what they were stuffed with my first baby. This time around, I know I won’t need nearly as much stuff. I am packing three bags: one for me, one for Shae and one for baby.

    For Me:

    PinkBlush Delivery Robe: This is the same robe I had when Everlee was born, but it’s amazing. It’s so soft and comfortable and makes it so easy to breastfeed. I think every mom deserves one of these!

    39 Week Bumpdate | Baby #2

    How far along: 39 weeks and feeling it!!

    Baby is the size of a: A pumpkin. Makes sense because my stomach is the size of a pumpkin.

    Weight gain: 27lbs as of last week, but have an appointment on Tuesday morning to get an exact amount.

    Maternity clothes: Yes. What I miss being pregnant in the summer was being able to put on a dress and calling it a day. It’s so cold right now that I’m so uncomfortable trying to bundle up!

    Sleep: I have been sleeping like crap the last few days because I’ve been miserable and sick. I’ve been napping during the day when Everlee naps but nights are not fun.

    Gender: GIRL! 

    Movement: At the beginning of the week I felt like she was hardly moving, but she’s been pretty active the last few days.

    Best moment this week: It hasn’t been the greatest week because I’ve been sick, but I would say spending one last weekend together as a family of 3.

    Looking forward to: Going into labor!

    Food cravings: All I’ve wanted is sprite for my sore throat and also pop tarts have sounded good all week.

    Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope.  

    Labor signs: Unfortunately no, and it’s a little discouraging.

    What I miss: Being able to take medicine when I am sick!

    Symptoms: Super out of breath, Braxton Hicks that go into my back, exhausted.

    Belly button in or out: I would say we have reached the point where it is completely flat.

    Wedding rings on or off: On!

    Mood: Miserable. I hate to complain but being sick is really kicking my ass!

    Five on Friday

    Happy Friday, friends! And Happy March! It is baby month! I’ve been really productive this week, and now that it’s the end of the week, I am completely exhausted. Also, I woke up with a sore throat so that puts a huge damper on things too.

    ONE: On Saturday, Shae and I had the ultimate day of dates. We spent the entire day out and about and had the best time! The morning started off with him getting a haircut and me going to Target for a few things. Once he was done, we went to Mod Pizza and grabbed a quick lunch before our appointment to get pedicures. This was Shae’s first ever pedicure and he said it was “life-changing.” Haha! After pedicures, we then headed to Walmart to see what the huge Baby Sale was all about. It was truthfully incredibly disappointing, but we got a few things for the girls. The Upside was playing at 2:30, so we hurried over and caught a movie. We loved this movie! Definitely recommend seeing it! The movie got over around 5pm so it was perfect to go to dinner. One of our favorite places to eat when we lived in North Carolina was Crazy Fire Mongolian Grill, so I found us a Mongolian grill! It was so delicious!

    Five on Friday

    ONE: I hadn’t uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel in over a month, but finally got one up! I really want to get back into filming again but to be completely honest, sitting at my computer has been so uncomfortable. I’ve strictly been blogging from my phone which has been a challenge, but editing videos takes WAY more time. Anyway, if you’d like to see what we were up to on Valentine’s Day, go check out our video here!

    Valentine’s Day 2019

    I woke up bright and early on Valentine’s Day so I could make my two Valentines a special breakfast. Unfortunately, I was up until 2am the night before unable to sleep, so I didn’t get up quite as early as I planned. Shae went to the gym extra early so he could come home and help me, even though I insisted he didn’t need too. I made heart shaped French toast served with blueberries! A huge craving I’ve been having is french toast, and last year I made heart shaped pancakes, so I decided to switch things up.
