Big update blog - pictures, pictures, and more pictures!




I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures of the house. I won't post all the pictures because there are some rooms I haven't gotten to take an "after" picture of. So I'll show you a "before" and "after" picture of the rooms I have pictures of and then I'll show you the others when I get the after pics. I also have a more recent picture of myself. I cut my head out of the picture because I had major "helmet hair" and looked like poo. I also have to warn you that I'm in a swim suit. I took it today before Waylon and I went out on a swim and thought it was decent enough to post. In no way, shape or form do I think I look good, I'm just showing how big my stomach has gotten.

Ok, here we go...

First, the house:
Before - had a bit of a nineties look with the maroon and green

After - still not done but we got grey on the walls and a marble-ish vinyl tile. That's my dad working on the corners that had to be trimmed.






I'll have more pictures of the house as we finish more of it but that's a start I guess. I'm going to try to use Waylon's camera next time b/c mine is not doing so great. It apparently has some spots on the lens that's coming out in the pictures.

Now for the picture of my big belly: Ta da!! This is a maternity two-piece that a good friend/family member, Jackie, lent me from her maternity clothes stash. She's been the one who's clothes you've seen me in several times on here. She had some great maternity clothes that fit me and kept me looking trendy! So there I am at 35 weeks and 2 days. I'm growing at a daily pace. 



Pregnant life is coming to an end and I'm greatly looking forward to it. I can't complain too much b/c I've had a complication-free pregnancy. I'm just so darn uncomfortable and hot all the time! I also am getting up more in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. 

Now we are focusing on getting moved into our house before the baby comes. I do NOT want to still be moving things when we have a newborn. If I were to go into labor or be induced before my due date, I don't want any moving hanging over my head. 

I will have to post more later when I have a little more time. I've got music practice in half an hour and I still need to shower from my swim.

You don't look bad in your bathingsuit....you'll appreciate the pictures later when you cam compare your pregnancies:) Your camera does have spots on the lense, I hope Waylon's camera does better! But at least we can see the difference!

I really like the grey color! We'll have to check it out sometime! I'm so glad you guys have a house, apartments are so lame when you have kids. Not that there is anything wrong with it, seeing as we've been living in them with our kiddos for quite some time :-) You will have everything done before you know it, this is like 'nesting' in overdrive, huh??
And the bathing suit picture is lovely, there is nothing wrong with how you look. We women have to sacrifice alot for our families and that includes carrying them around in our bodies for 9 months! You look MAHvalous!

You look great! There were several pregnant women at camp and they looked so cute in their swimsuits at the pool!

Your house looks really cute! And the prego picture is great. I know you are getting tired of feeling huge all the time but it will be over soon. Then you will just have to carry that heavy carseat..it feels like it weights a ton to me with Tyler in it and he is only 14 1/2 pounds.

I don't know how you aren't losing your mind moving so close to the baby being born! I'm SO with you on the no energy thing. I still have so much to do in the nursery, but I didn't want to get ahead of myself and find out it's actually a boy! Now that I've seen her girl parts (in 3D) with my own two eyes... it's go go go!

Don't worry about the shower! I understand you have LOTS on your plate right now! :) They will be here before we know it! Crazy....
