Better late than never?

Baby T you are late! I've spent to much time organizing your room, the house,  and whatever else I can find - it's time to get this show on the road! However, every morning that I wake up and get out of bed I am grateful to have another day to get things done, spend time with Derek, and reflect on life and it's coming changes. Still I am anxious to meet you and to stop the ever growing expansion of my belly.

I guess you'll come on time . . .  whenever that is

Come One Come All

Since it has been raining for the past 3 days and I have been stuck in doors trying to avoid cleaning anything in the house I came up with a little crafting project to fill my time. You know me and how I love to work in a theme! So, in keeping with the baby nursery motif I decided (I know this seems over the top) to make little gift bags for any visitors we get in the hospital. 

These are the darling circus bags that I am filling with all sorts of goodies below

Since we have decided to wait on naming the baby until we see him I had to stick with Baby Tillotson on the ticket stubs... I think we have narrowed the names down to two which feels like a huge accomplishment!
 I hope these little bags will entice you all to come visit us in the hospital!

Mini Watermelon 38 weeks

"Baby T" this week you are a watermelon and I LOVE watermelon so, I was ecstatic that this week my app compared you to a 'relevant melon' or food item for that matter. . . Any ways this past week was mother's day and it was the first time in my life where I celebrated being a mom, being able to be your mom! Tu tu sent me this quote and of course it made me all weepy;

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. - Rajneesh

We have two weeks left together (give or take) and as ready as I am for the next phase of our relationship and to have my body back I have a feeling as soon as you are out I am going to miss this part of our bond. I just finished packing our hospital bags this week and I fretted over what outfits to bring you, what you should wear for the first time, and since I couldn't settle on any one thing I packed a mini bag of clothes for you even though I'll probably never put you in them and just want to hold you skin to skin. But your room is ready for you so you are welcome to come any day :)

I made your hot air balloon mobile in a nesting/crafting fit one evening

Your clothes are folded and in place. We are just waiting to fill you up in them and to fill our lives up with you!
