Bumpdate 2.0 {36 Weeks}

How far along? 36 Weeks
Weight Gain: 20 lbs
How Big is Baby? Supposedly about 6 pounds?? I don't really know how that's possible, since Evie was only 5lbs at birth!
Maternity Clothes? No. But elastic waist shorts are my new best friends.
Stretch Marks? None
Sleep: Not great, but not too, too horrible.
Best Moment of the Week: Crossing a few baby-related things off my To Do List! Nursery is finally done being painted, the crib is put together and a load of teeny tiny newborn clothes has been washed!
Movement: Yes, and they're now all really intense and hard, since he's running out of room in there!
Food Cravings: Sweets and refreshing, lemony drinks
Gender: BOY!
What I Miss: Our anniversary was a week & a half ago, and all I really wanted (other than to lay on a beach somewhere), was to enjoy a nice, big glass of wine while out at a leisurely dinner. But that seems to be frowned upon around these parts. ;)
What I'm looking forward to: Holding my boy
Symptoms: I have officially started to swell. Which is awesome. This never really happened with Evie, but my wedding band gets snug and my feet and ankles start to swell almost immediately every day. Not sure if it has to do with the warmer weather or what, but it's not cute. My legs basically feel like tree stumps by the afternoon.
Emotions: Oh man. I literally have an emotional breakdown at least once a week. I just cry so much more easily and quickly (thanks hormones!) and I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately with all I feel like I need to get done and a pretty full May calendar. Top that off with less and less energy, and I just don't think I can get to everything. Which I can't. And I won't. But I'm trying to give myself a little grace and realize that it will be ok in the end. One day at a time!

Life lately.

Hello long lost friends. 
Life has overwhelmed me a bit lately, (and doesn't look like it will be slowing down in this last month before Baby Brother is born!) but here are a few things that we have been up to:

My favorite nephew was born!!! Okay, my one and only niece or nephew, so by default, he is far and away my FAVE! Can't get enough of his sweet little face and hair and those big brown eyes. Seriously considering moving to the west coast so I can hold him whenever I want.

Lilac Row took part in another Vintage Market Days Event, and we had a blast! 


The only sad part of the weekend was that my girl got sick and needed a little extra attention. It also resulted in mama sleeping with her for part of a few nights, which basically meant not a lot of sleeping.

I took a little trip to the hospital to have Baby Boy monitored, after an eventful, contraction-filled morning. Not fun. But thankfully all is well and I am drinking even more water than before, which is truly saying something. And resting. Sort of. Trying to rest!

Easter fun!

We celebrated our 6th anniversary last weekend. We had planned to go out of town, but got the kibosh from my doctor. Womp womp. I was actually pretty upset about it, since I didn't really figure it would be a big deal for a few more weeks. 

The perfect garage sale scores for my girl: pint-sized binoculars and a brand new ghost chair!


Trying out Baby Brother's bed

Feels like summer!

The Death of the Nap. 
It seems to be coming and I am fighting it tooth and nail, believe me. Like, it makes me want to cry even thinking about it. 

Tiny Dancer. We had pictures and practiced for their big recital, which is coming up in a few weeks! The cuteness was insane.

And now the countdown is on until this baby arrives!
