Update!

Sorry folks, I haven't had much to blog about lately. Husband finally came home to me. He actually came back a week earlier than he was supposed to. It's so good to have him home! My little sugar plum is continuing to grow healthy and strong. He is breech so it's looking like we are scheduling a c-section at 39 weeks, so he'll be here July 3rd! That's in 31/2 weeks people! Too scary to think about.
On to my latest finds. So, we all know I had given up on baby's nursery and was never going to step foot in a thrift store EVER again. Well I was starting to feel desperate and gave in. Totally got everything I needed in one day. Score!
This mirror came with the dresser I found. It ended up being the wrong mirror, but I love it, and there's a spot for it in the nursery.
Ok so I had given up on a dresser completely and was just going to use the desk for the changing table. But I found this dresser for $35, and it was exactly what I wanted. It's from the same bedroom set as the desk.
It was darling cream, but I was set on painting it like the desk to match the room. So Leyla (who by the way is my life saver/bff) came over and helped me paint it.

And the chair.. Not the cutest thing in the world. But it's super comfy and cost me $13. I just couldn't pass it up. Plus it's nothing some throw pillows can't dress up right?
And here's mama's request for a tummy pic. Grow belly grow! Not sure how it will get any bigger. P.s. my feet/cankles are hilariously swollen! Husband loves making finger prints in them! I took a picture of them but I'm too embarrassed to put it up. Ha.

Bree. you are so thrifty and talented. You are a chip off the old block!!
I wish I could be there with mom during all the excitement. When I am down there for the blessing, I bet the first words we here the baby say are, "Grandpa is a stud."
Love you....Dad

The nursery is turning out so awesome!! Honey I am so sorry about your feet and ankles. I had elephantitis too. It is not fun. At the end of the day I would elevate my feet and put ice packs DIRECTLY on them. I cant wait to see this little boy.

Okay, maybe this will make you feel a little better...Merrick was breech too (well, and pike, and low on fluid, blah, blah, blah) and when they told me I was going to have a c-section I literally started crying to my Dr. because it freaked me out so much! But honestly, it was the best experience EVER! I am definitely having all my babies c-section. It wwas awesome because I knew exactly when he was coming so I was totally prepared. I didn't have to go into labor which was great and i felt like my recovery was weeks faster than my friends who've had babies naturally. Plus, I felt like my body bounced back easier from not having to push a baby out of you know where. The scar that I was so scared about is literally almost invisible a year and a half later, it is so unnoticable. Really truly, I would tell you don't be scared and totally embrace all the upsides of having a c-section! It's weird to be told you're having a surgery when for almost nine months (or your whole life) you've imagined a normal delivery, but I think you'll be okay. Sorry to write you a novel, but I was so grateful to the girl who told me all the same things when I was freaking out :)

Bree you are almost there! Yayyy!
My ankles were always like that too when I was pregnant, and the fingerprints you can push in them are kind of sick but fascinating - ha ha!
I know everything will go well for you!
Enjoy having your mama there!!
