36 weeks!

36 weeks! we are almost there, baby girl! the home stretch! i can honestly say that I am getting ready to be done lugging you around in my belly and would much rather be holding you in my arms! maybe it's the heat, maybe it's chasing after your big sis or maybe it's how you are positioned so low but getting around this time is hard work!

- i am carrying totally different than with avery. with aves, my bump was more spread out. this time around it's all right in front like a basketball/watermelon/volleyball (you get the picture).
- i am craving chocolate milk like there's no tomorrow. oh and fruit. i've been eating peaches like it's nobody's business
- because it's been warm we have been hitting up the pool around 3 times a week. it's one activity that i enjoy doing outside in the heat. last saturday we were all busy in the garage working on painting projects just dripping sweat. once we were done we all threw on our suits and ran over to prairie life to swim for a bit. an evening swim with the pool to ourselves was just what we needed and a super fun way to spend a saturday night!
- baby girl gets hiccups about once a day :)
- i bought a wrap for this baby. i am determined to try to do more 'baby wearing' this time. i think that'll help free up my hands while keeping her close to me. i like the idea of being able to play with avery while wearing this sweet babe.
- greg and i are TORN on names. i am so hoping that once we see her we will just know which to pick...
- big sister's got big plans on helping with 'her baby'. she has informed everyone that she will give the baby a ba-ba, change the baby's diaper, hand me wipes, rock the baby night-night...i've been reading as much as I can on making the transition smooth for the older sibling. i'm sure they are each different and adjust at their own hope is that avery does well and still feels like she is getting attention and as much love as before. makes me nervous!
- baby girl's bag is packed. our goal for the weekend is to finish the nursery and pack mommy and daddy's bag. (oh and big sisters bag just in case - because my mom keeps teasing me that if i go in to labor in the middle of the night and no one answers that she will have to tag along!)
- 36 week appointment details: measuring right at 36 weeks, dilated to 1cm and 75% effaced. dr said my cervix is nice and soft. i have been really crampy these past few weeks and experiencing a lot of dull back pain. 
- i got another dang sinus infection! antibiotics, round 2. 
- and last but not least, my best friend gave birth to a baby BOY on july 30th!!! we have been loving on sweet baby jude lots and avery is having so much fun seeing a little baby :) obviously this has nothing to do with my pregnancy except that it's so fun and exciting to be experiencing all things 'baby' together with my bestie this time around!

Remember what it's like to hold a baby, Greg??? ;)

Got our car seat all ready for...Avery's baby?!

I couldn't help but watch Avery brush her teeth like a big girl last week. Getting so big and independent.

Sissy graduated from Nursing School! Yay!

Dresser in the baby's nursery that Greg repainted. Looks amazing!
