Busy Weekend

We had the best weekend celebrating sweet Lillian Grace turning two, and I can't wait to share all of the fun with you! 

Tonight, though, I. Am. Beat.  We spent the rest of the weekend getting organized and running last minute errands because I think we both thought this baby was gonna make moves today. We finally have a crib mattress, and although the nursery is far from done, I finally feel ready. Ya hear that, baby boy?  I got a manicure and pedicure today, too (GREEN, all boy thoughts!!!).  The sweet lady who did my nails told me that I look small and she thought I had a lot more than two weeks left. Bless her soul, I was worried that she was blind but she was very thorough and my fingers and toesies look fab.

All that's left is to pack the hospital bag, which I plan to do tomorrow.  I probably should have done it tonight, but my hands and feet are sausages and I have serious cankles (hence no photo of my gorgeous nails), which prompted my husband to mandate "bed rest."  He's even finishing folding tiny human clothes for me while I rest it up. Best ever. 

Anyway, I digress.   All that to say this: we're ready for ya, sweet boy, so let's do this thing, eh?  And thanks for letting your big sister have her day to herself before you made your debut. 

More tomorrow!



  1. So glad Lilly had a great birthday!!! I'm so excited for you all to meet your sweet baby boy, I keep checking to see if he's coming! :)

    Great work on the pedi/mani lady, that is a MUST before labor! ;)


    1. Girl I am so vain, I knew I had to have these feet and hands taken care of! Bending over is a serious chore but I also shaved my legs just in case. Come on, baby boy!!!

  2. So glad he didn't make an appearance right after Lilly's party! I heard you mention contractions and then y'all got outta there real quick… I looked at Carney and said "Looks like you might have a new little one to take care of by Monday"

    Hopefully, he'll come soon (now that Lilly's celebrations are over).

    PS. Ellington is still talking about the trampoline at the party! Had so much fun.

    1. Oh my gosh, I REALLY thought he was coming Saturday night. I had been having contractions for about 24 hours at that point and with all of the activity I was thinking that was gonna be it. He's still cooking for now! SO glad you guys were able to make it, Lilly talked about Ellie for the rest of the weekend...sounds like a play date is in order, stat. And she LOVES the bead making kit and the puzzle! I told her that Ellington gave it to her so she says, "Mommy, Lilly make necklace with Ellington beads." Hilarious!
