Seems like we have been so busy lately.  From getting ready for baby boy to spending as much time as we can together as a family- it has been really, really great.  And after Friday, I feel even more blessed and grateful to have my baby(ies). 

We did a lot of crafting this weekend....

We made a magnet board for Emily- she loooooves it!  Thanks for the idea Heather!

and a mobile for baby boy, inspired by my blog friend Amanda.  One of these days I'll get a post up about his nursery.

We also decorated paper mache letters for baby boy's name, I'm only sharing a couple of letters because we aren't quite ready for the whole internet to know what his name will be.

I'm 35 weeks today (yikes!) and we are as ready as we are going to be for baby boy to come. His room is ready and there are diapers and clothes waiting for him. I'm amazed at how fast this pregnancy has gone by and how relatively easy it has been compared to Emily's pregnancy. Now I'm just trying to mentally prepare myself as much as I can for having two babies under two and how strange it will be not having all day to myself with Emily. 

Last but not least, our weekend ended with a trip to the mall to see Santa.  I'm sure you can all guess how this went....

Steve and I were fully prepared for a breakdown and knowing our daughter like we do, we were not surprised.  She was fine immediately afterwards and even stopped to check out a few bunnies they had nearby.

A big thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for waiting in line for us (for a long time!) while Emily napped, it made the whole ordeal less stressful!!


  1. Hi Bridget! Can I just say that Emily looks like a little doll in that last picture? Just precious! Can't wait to see pictures of little boy's nursery! Happy Holidays to you!

  2. She looks like a little girl in that last pic. NO.

    I am so proud of you for all that crafting! And when I get to do another nursery I am totally doing that

  3. You HAVE to show us his nursery, Bridget. It looks amazing from the little you shared.

    Excited to find out his name too. With your hint, I have a few guesses! :)

    ANd of course, Miss E is perfect!

  4. Eek you are so close!! I am anxiously awaiting all of your blog posts as you become a family of 4. I hope to take some time and make the same magnet board Heather shared while I'm off over the holiday break. Seems to be a winner with all the kids so far.

    And that picture of her kissing your belly is the sweetest!
