Little Ryan arrived early!

So today I would have posted my 38 week pic but I guess we are done with those! Now I have my adorable little baby Ryan to post pics of. This week has been flying by and we are loving every minute. It has been so amazing having my mom and Kevin's parents in town - we are so spoiled and we are going to miss them when it's just the three of us! I am loving being a mom and love little Ryan so much!!!

Wedding Invitations

There was a fundraiser at Ethan's school and Sarah had asked if I would like to contribute some custom invitations as one of the prizes. The lady who won the invitations asked for wedding invitations - I was a little worried at first but when she told me that it was a small wedding (only need 25 invitations) I felt much better. She was also very chill and not a bridezilla so I didn't have to worry about that either. I came up with a few different designs and she ended up selecting the one below.

I ended up using a larger light blue ribbon for the final product but never took a picture of it.

Here is what it looked like when you opened it up

 And a close up of the wording. I printed the invitations on my printer then individually stamped and embossed them.

37 weeks

So Ryan is officially full term today - so weird to think he is all ready to come out! I can't wait to see him but also can't believe he will be here within 3 weeks or sooner! So I am getting bigger and get heartburn every time I eat anything - yay!

Tonight we are off to a Rangers game with Stacey, Jake, Terra & Bryan. It's going to be a hot one!

Dimples Cupcakes

OMG - I love these cupcakes! I have been such a society bakery purist and didn't think anyone else could come close, but I think they have met their match.  Nat and I went here today and I love them! Plus if you are preggo you get a free one! One for mommy and one for baby Ryan. I tried the Red Velvet, Cookies and Cream & Chocolate Cream Cheese. Don't worry I didn't eat all three - just a bite from each :) Gotta save some for dad too!


So I have had a couple of projects that I have been working on and the first one is Terra Webster's bridal shower invitations. I finally finished them and they are ready to be mailed out tomorrow. The pics below make the chandelier blurry, but its actually a shadow - I haven't mastered photography yet. Also, the invitation is the same in both pics, but once again my photography skills have somehow managed to make it looks like two different invitations.

Next up is wedding invitations for a friend of Sarah's and then bachelorette invitations for Ashley Rhodes! yay! After that I plan to finally sit down and get Ryan's baby book started. I need to at least have a page for hospital guest to sign before he comes!

Ryan's Crib - yay!

So the last piece of furniture finally came in - yay! We love the crib but I really just need my mom to come back up here and fix it up all nice. We just threw the bedding on it to get an idea of what it would look like but it needs to be perfected.

Next up is getting hanging pictures on the walls and getting everything washed and ready for little Ryan. 

36 weeks

This past week we interviewed and selected a pediatrician and we put together Ryan's crib - yay! Here is my weekly pic - Kevin says I look bigger in the pics than I do in person, but I am not so sure about that. Nothing much different from my updates last week - back pain usually after I eat and have a full stomach, lots of waking up in the middle of the night for the bathroom and difficulty getting to sleep. Other than that things are good. I am still making it to the gym - bike riding, elliptical, or swimming. I try to walk on the treadmill but its the most difficult because of the pressure. Anyhoo - I guess we are in the final countdown now!

35 weeks

A little over a month left! This is the first week where I am starting to feel a little uncomfortable. My belly is feeling big and I have noticed that my back is starting to hurt. The nausea is back but its really not that bad - it comes and goes. And of course - easy does it. I have noticed that I get exhausted very easily and nap time with Bob is my favorite time!

So I had a doctors appointment today and everything went well. As I have mentioned before the appointments are somewhat uneventful these days so there is nothing really to report.

Let's see, I did gain enough weight to have to move the the bar on the scale over a notch! In any other case that would probably be extremely depressing but I am a-ok with it for now. I have really been loving my ice cream and cookies and the nurse says that my weight gain has been text book go me and Ryan.  I only have a little longer to enjoy gaining weight...I know losing it won't be as much fun.

Anyhow,  Ryan is head down and Dr. Richards thinks that he will probably stay that way so thats good news. I asked about my due date and he said it won't change from August 15th - so thats what we are aiming for. He won't let me go past 42 weeks, but I really hope Ryan comes around 40! He said if I was extremely uncomfortable at 39/40 weeks then we could talk about inducing but that he would rather not since its my first pregnancy. I also really would like Ryan to come on his own, but then again I don't want to wait forever!

Messy Eating

Goodness - I never realized what a messy eater I evidently am. Everyday I end up with crumbs or spills on my belly. I guess before everything just fell to the floor...oopsies!
