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


Closet doors


Accessories in your room!




Pillows made by Grannie Annie



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!
