I'm the next Martha Stewart

Matt has been gone for the majority of this week so it's just been me and JJ hanging out.  Matt was in Providence, RI for work from Sunday-Wednesday, and then a retreat out in Amish Country with his buddies from Friday-Sunday.  To keep busy I busted out the old sewing machine.  I need to make some new cornhole bags and also looked up some easy baby projects.

I ended up making some burp cloths.  It was just a simple project where I sewed flannel to the back of cloth diapers for added absorbency and to help them not slip off your shoulder.  I must say they turned out pretty out Martha Stewart I'm gunning for your post as domestic goddess (minus the whole jail time thing).

30 included

Alright, finally found the camera chord.  Let me preface this with me and Matt seem to be horrible baby bump photographers.  But beggers can't be choosers and here are a few pictures of how much larger my belly has gotten over the last few weeks...

30 weeks...picture taken in the bathroom...dark, but the best of the bunch

I got distracted during our failed baby bump photo shoot, so here is me and JJ

And finally a better picture of the bump at 30 weeks (plus 3 days), but with my face blocked.  I promise you're not missing anything.  It is super hot out today when I took this picture and I have bird poop in my hair....yes bird poop.  This would be the 3rd time this summer a bird has pooped in my hair, I choose to believe it's good luck.

And just to round things out a picture of the baby daddy.  I realized there would be more pictures of the dog then Matt if I didn't include one and that seemed just wrong.  This is us at Kelly's Island celebrating Father's Day.

I'm still feeling pretty good and am looking forward to another doctors appointment on Monday.

30 Weeks

Yesterday marked 30 weeks!  I can't believe how time is flying by!  Only 10 more weeks if baby decides to hang out until full term....less if it wants to me like momma and early to everything.  

I'll do another post once I figure out where my camera chord is so I can post pictures.  I'll even post the out take bump pictures just for you Kate :)  

Have a fabulous weekend and I'll find my chord and post more this weekend!

California or bust

Everything looked good at the 28 week check up.  No diabetes or 3 hour retest for me!  I start going to the doctor every 2 weeks now since I'm in the third trimester.

We had an excellent time in Youngstown celebrating the 4th of July.  It was great to see everyone and we were overwhelmed by the love and support for us and the little one coming soon.  Thank you to Aunt Beth for the present.... will be representing California early on :)
