oh hey.

I'm a blogging slacker.

It's just that I've been real busy eating cake and being rude to strangers in parking lots. (do not say dumb things to me when I'm carrying cake in a parking lot.)

So other than my extreme debilitating pelvic pain, being 34+ weeks pregnant is a breeze. It actually has been a little better the last couple of days where I haven't cried, so that's cool. I talked with my OB about it today and he actually showed some sympathy but said that nothing has actually been proven to help with this type of pain other than delivering the baby. And of course, like every appointment before, he asks if I want to schedule my c-section. In case you didn't know, I'm going to try for a VBAC and I'm pretty much set on it. I really hope it works out this time, and while I recognize that I need to do what's best for both the baby and me, I will be pretty ticked if I have to have my baby surgically removed.

The baby's room is almost complete after cracking down and working hard on it this week. So while I don't have a picture of what it looks like now, I do have a picture of what it doesn't look like anymore.
Marcus put in a nice little closet system!
Because of that adorable little closet, everything that was once in there, was thrown out into the rest of the room. Resulting in this:


You think I should be embarrassed?

That closet housed all of our photo albums, gift wrap, tacky dresses, old coats, picture frames, and random crap. And with the basement being under construction, there hasn't been a ton of room to move things down there to store - until the last couple of weeks. So FINALLY, with some help from my mom, (since Marcus has been extra busy with work and finishing the basement) we got everything sorted, stored, or trashed. She and I put the new crib together, and I now have all of the new baby's clothing hung and organized. I'm feeling so much more ready than I was even 5 days ago! 
We're keeping Charlotte in a crib, mostly because I don't want to deal with any changes right now, and she hasn't been protesting at all. If it's not broke, don't fix it. 

In other news, we had some family pictures taken this week, and I couldn't be happier! Anne Jansen  did an amazing job. There was only one picture where I look larger than the average bear and it was an unposed one. So when she tells a pregnant chick to stand/sit/pose a certain way, do it. It's like magic.
 I will share some photos in the next few days. But I'll leave you with this one that warms up my icy heart.

  1. That's such a beautiful picture! Also I'll bet that my closet is worse than yours once was :)

    1. Thanks! That's what closets are for, right? Just cram it in and close the door....

  2. So crying at the OB's office didn't work? Bummer.
