Baby P’s Hospital Bag

Happy Tuesday!!!! So, I’m like 2 1/2 weeks from my due date and obviously feeling super anxious!!! Bags are packed and ready to go….. I think… Haha

I thought I would share with you guys a few things in Baby Boy P’s hospital bag and a few things I can’t live without!

20150929-082017.jpg
Diaper Bag: Petunia Picklebottom(Nordstrom) I carried/carry a Petunia Picklebottom bag for Miss Libbey and love it!! The one I currently carry is a little smaller, so I thought I might need something a bit bigger this time around with two kiddos! I love the brand!! It holds up soooo well and they are all super cute:)

Wubbanub Pacifier: Amazon
Love love love these! Libbey had like 5! They are easier for little ones to find and easier to keep in because they are heavier than a normal pacifier! I hope baby #2 is a fan!

Swaddle Blankets: Aden and Anais
They are fabulous!! So easy to swaddle with, super soft, and wash well!

Swaddler: The Ollie
I have yet to try it, but can’t wait to use it! I have heard only good things about it!

Sleeper Gowns: Carter’s
Love the gowns when I’m just chilling at home with the baby! They are so soft and make diaper changing easy!

Double Stroller: Baby Jogger City Select( we purchased the black!)

Oh, and of course I had to get a pumpkin spice frap on the first day of fall! 🙂
Happy Thursday!

Pictures of Libbey

Hellooo!!!
Ummmm first of all where has September gone?? I can’t believe it is almost October! Yikes! I love the fall and all the fun festivals, weather, and pumpkin everything, but I could have had a few more weeks of pool time:( I guess I need to embrace fall! I took Miss Lib to a pumpkin patch on Sunday, so I guess I’m starting to embrace the change of seasons! The chica loves being outside! She did not want to leave the pumpkin patch! She did pick out a few cute pumpkins and gourds to take home! I have them on the front porch right now, but I know they won’t stay there! Libbey is quite the decorator! Haha

We had a few pictures taken of Libbey yesterday! She was really in to it for the first 35 minutes and then the girl was done! I didn’t do any maternity pictures this time around, so I was in a few pictures!

You guys!! I’m in love with my top above from Sheinside! I can’t wait to wear it when I’m not pregnant! It would look so cute with denim or white denim! I might be able to wear it as a dress! We shall see! I’m picturing it with little booties of cowboy boots!! I have ordered from Sheinside a few times now! Their items take a few weeks to come in, but I’ve never had an issue with returning or exchanging. Super affordable!!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I plan on attempting to pack for the hospital and get the rest of our house “baby ready!”

Happy Thursday!! So, we put Miss Libbey in her “big girl” bed on Tuesday night for the first time… It was bittersweet. She woke up twice, but we didn’t let her get out of bed. Last night she slept all night!! Wahoo!!! We shall see how tonight goes! I can’t believe I’ll soon have another baby sleeping in her crib!

I’m 36 weeks today, so I thought I would do a little bump update for you guys!
How Far Along: 36 weeks!
Gender: Boy!!!
Stretch Marks: none so far! Still using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter(usually twice a day)
Maternity Clothes: for the most part… Still wearing maxi skirts and dresses along with stretchy waistband shorts!
Sleep: nonexistent… It is all good though! My body is ready to be up every few hours already! Haha
Cravings: nothing right now… We’ll, besides a pumpkin spice latte:) I’m just trying to eat.. I’m so full of baby that nothing really sounds good and I eat half of what I did a month ago.. I miss food!!! Haha once I start nursing I’m sure I’ll be back to eating like crazy!
Belly Button: OUT! It is out for the world to see! Haha It is actually kind of sore… I think my skin is just super stretched out in that area.
Exercise: Still walking a few times a week! We have been super busy, so I try to walk at least twice a week and then I’ll do squats and lunges at home.
Wedding Ring: Still on!
Swelling: my ankles and feet have started swelling just a tad in the last week and half. My shoes still fit fine! They usually swell at the end of the day when I have been on my feet a lot.

Thanks for reading!!

We had her birthday party over the weekend and she got the American Girl Bitty Baby twins! She is quite the little mommy! It is so stinkin cute! I haven’t gone through the party pictures yet, but I’ll try to post a few later this week!

Hope you all had a fabulous Labor Day weekend! We had lots of family in town, so we were super busy! We took Miss Libbey to a parade yesterday and she was so excited because she thought Minnie and Mickey would be there.. She thinks every parade is like a Disney World parade.. I hated bursting her bubble, but she still had fun! I’m not really ready for fall weather(I know I’m crazy), but I am ready to decorate for fall!! Maybe I’ll do it this week!! I’ll be sure to share a few pictures!!

Fall Cravings

So, like almost everyone else I loooove fall! I’m a pumpkin fanatic, obsessed with flannel, blanket scarves, booties, and sweaters! I haven’t really purchased anything for fall yet because I’ve been buying baby buy clothes like crazy! I do have my eye on a few items! My mom usually takes me birthday shopping in October, so I’m waiting for then to go crazy!! I thought I would share with you a few things I think my closet is craving for fall!

My sweet friends and family threw me a little surprise party Friday evening! It was so much! I hate being the center of attention, so I was a hot mess the first few minutes of the party! My little brother even came home from college to come to the party! Libbey and I stayed up past our bedtime to party! Hehe Miss Lib was loving life!
You guys need to run to Target and get the army green vest I’m wearing above ! I looooove it! You will definitely see me wear it over and over this fall!!
I’m going to my last two week check up tomorrow! I can’t believe it is almost baby time!!!
