36 Weeks

Today is a pretty big day. Not only am I 36 weeks, but Alice is 18 months old! I will do her post tomorrow, as my large belly shouldn't overshadow her day.

I have been sleeping sporadically. As soon as I start feeling sleep on the horizon, it never fails. I have to go to the bathroom. Anymore, 2am is an early bedtime. There have been those 3 and 4 am beatings too. I really look forward to nap time. That is the only time I really sleep well.

I think Sean is going to get me a recliner. I hope so. Aside from the possibility that I may sleep better there for the next few weeks, it will be a nice place to nurse. We have a rocking chair in the bedroom, but we have never done anything with it. It needs to be refinished and cushions. It is an old rocking chair...Sean and his sisters were all rocked and nursed in it!

Sean took Alice with him to church this morning. You are probably wondering why I didn't go. It is over an hour and a half away, and I had only gotten a few hours of sleep by the time they left. Remind me to DEFINITELY set out outfits (complete with shoes, hair clips, socks, etc) for when I'm in the hospital. She looked like some crazy mismatched, wild hair girl! At least he tried :)

So without further ado, here is this weeks picture. You can see my haircut and swollen fingers/hands too! Oh and I'll start taking weekly pictures so maybe we'll see this little guy drop!

Love the sweater. Such a pretty purple! And he doesn't look very little...

You look great! I'm impressed that you got your hair and nails done with an 18 month old in the wings! :-)

Lookin' good, mama!!

We have a recliner in the baby's room too. IT IS AMAZING. I had a glider with Samara and the recliner kicks the glider's butt!
