35 weeks...how many more will it be?

Yesterday was 35 weeks! HOLY COW! Vann will be here soon!


How Far Along: 35 weeks & 2 Days
 
Sleep: I am doing well. I have gotten used to waking up every so often to roll myself over. I CAN'T WAIT to sleep on my tummy and back again! This sleeping on my side is for the birds...the way my belly pulls on my back can't be good! Poor Ryan has not been sleeping well...I hate when I wake up and he's still awake. I can fall asleep so quick and easy, and he has to lay there forever. It makes me feel awful for him and even more terrible that I can fall right back into dreamland. 
 
Best Moment This Week: There have been lots! I loved that Ryan was off for a long 4 day weekend! The 4th was fun! Dad came over and painted more of Vann's room. We enjoyed celebrating my Papa's 87th birthday and having cake and ice cream that Nannie made.  Ryan and I had a movie date as well since it was icky weather! 
  
{Not done yet, but closer than before!}

Friday, we went golfing Ryan went golfing and I rode in the golf cart with him. We got stuck in a torrential downpour and dodged it by hiding under trees off to the side of the course. It probably wasn't the smartest decision, but I love being caught in the rain with the Dossinator. He is amazing. 
 
 
Saturday, I woke up early and made my way into town to pick up our first Bountiful Basket. I highly recommend finding a co-op in your neck of the woods. We have fruits and veggies flowing out of our ears. It even allowed me to pull out our juicer that Ryan bought a year ago and try it out for the first time! YUM! We love it. We had no idea what to mix together, but whatever we did worked! They are just a pain to wash all of the pieces! That night we had a date to Athens! We enjoyed some pizza from Mellow Mushroom and talking about the future! 

Sunday, we were skippers and missed church! Thank goodness the sermons are online and we can catch up!  Our friends, Sarah and Clint, were in town! Ryan and Clint headed to the golf course, and Sarah and I had brunch and manis/pedis! 
 {Vann got this sweet present in the mail from Britney, my Phi Mu sister! 
I love his hooded beach towel!}
 
Monday, we had a great shower at Ryan's work! Vann is definitely going to be taken care of with all of the awesome gifts and sweet prayers he has had. We even got to see Easton and Gabby again! It was good to hear some mommy advice as well. Greg had come over earlier in the day and installed Vann's fan and curtain rod/curtains! Ryan was surprised, and I hope it helped take some of the "to-do" list pressure off of him!




Food Cravings: Cold! Veggies, fruit, frozen yogurt. Anything cold is refreshing! 

How’s Mama? I cannot complain! This has been a great pregnancy. I have been praying that delivery goes well, praying for the nurses and doctors, and praying for a strong mental dedication in birth. Ryan is going to be amazing!

What I miss: The sun! It looks like it has finally peeped out these last two days, but goodness we were about to build an ark! The rain was crazy. I am pretty sure Ryan cut the grass 3 times last week! (As I am writing this it started raining again...no kidding!)

What I am looking forward to: Seeing our sweet boy on the ultrasound next week! We also have an awesome shower that some of our best friends are throwing and attending on Sunday! I can't wait to see everyone! I have a few more things to get before I can pack my hospital bag and be done with it. I have all of Vann's stuff, just need snacks/clothes for Ryan, slippers and pjs for me, and a couple other things to get us through!

Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: Vann is the size of a coconut! He's about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, he won't get much longer, but he's plumping up. He's now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and he'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. **I will know closer measurements when I go to our dr. visit next week!**
 
Fun Facts:
  • weight gain: 28 lbs
  • stretch marks: none yet!
  • mood: happy with a side of stress to get everything done!
  • belly button: FLAT!
  • wedding rings: yep! 
 
 
Vann, We can't wait to see your beautiful eyes, your little fingers, and tiny toes! We are getting prepared as best we can for you. I love walking by your room and peeping in. It's changed so much in there since we found out you were coming. We wrote in your baby book, and one day you will get to read the story of Mommy and Daddy and all about how we prayed for you to join us! 
Love you sweet boy! 
  
{Vann, Lyla loves to snuggle with you already!}

    1. Thank you! We are excited to have it nearly finished. My dad is an awesome painter and did the stripes for us. It would have been hard for me to do it, but he has lots of experience! We are waiting on some furniture to be refinished and it will be ready minus the tiny details!

  2. You look great! I can't sleep on my side, either. I have all sorts of pillows propping me up and still can't stand it. I also love those stripes in the room!

    1. Hey Chelsea!

      The crib is from a boutique in Athens called Rattles and Rhymes. Google them, they have a website! I love it! It also turns into a toddler bed with side rails when our little man gets big enough!
