My heart exploded

at this moment. So much love for this little man, I can't put into words. I don't know who was crying more, him or me.

I'll write a birth story when I have more time, but for now I am busy soaking up every moment with him. Long story short, he decided to make an appearance on his own, and I went into labor Monday night. The induction wasn't needed after all!

Birthday time

I am being induced tomorrow morning. (To keep a long story short, we can't wait for him thanks to my pemphigoid gestational.) Still crossing my fingers he comes on his own tonight!

At this time tomorrow I will (hopefully) be holding my little man in my arms. I seriously still can't believe I am having a baby.

Holy shit.

Nursery Reveal

I wanted a room that would be able to grow with little man, and nothing really "babyish". I think I accomplished the fun, modern nursery that I was envisioning.

 Dresser, light and lamp from Ikea. I adore the robot painting we found from a local artist. Coshee changing pad.

 My contribution to the nursery. I had plans to design other things for the wall, but at least I got these finished.

This is a Best brand chair, Storytime Series. I believe it is the Quinn model. SO comfy. Print from Ikea. 

 I still need to add some circles behind the crib. Crib is Madison 4 in 1 by Eden Baby.

 I searched high and low for the perfect fabric for the shades, crib skirt and bedding.
I found it online at marmalade fabric.

 Love this funky rug from CB2. A splurge, but I think it completes the room.

Fluffy butt central!

The difference between men & women.

Random women I run across in public: "When are you due?" After my response, "Ohh you are so tiny," or something along those lines.

Men: No questions, just something like "Whooooa, you don't have much longer!"
A couple months back I actually had a UPS guy stop and back up a little when he was walking a package to our door. He followed that up with, "Oh man you are about to pop!" Yes, that was two MONTHS ago.

The difference with the responses & comments I get crack me up.

Healthy, yummy "ice cream"

I LOVE ice cream. I mean, obsessed, more than a little kid, when it comes to getting my ice cream. (preferably chocolate, with more chocolate added, on a too-often regular basis.) Since I decided to try anything to help my diagnosis, and going dairy free falls into that, I have had to give up my other true love. Here is a way I have managed to not go insane, and it is SO tasty. I can even sit in the same room as my husband eats his real ice cream.
Yes, I totally used to make him go in the other room when he ate real ice cream.

Frozen banana (or 2)
Chocolate almond milk
Throw in blender, mix up. Easy as that!
The other night I added some natural peanut butter. SOO good.
You seriously need to try this. Now.

Things my husband says

"I'm going to go work on the upstairs. You just stand on your head."

When we were discussing the fact that I was 3 cm dilated & 75% effaced on Friday.
