35 Weeks: So Many New Things....

I am officially 35 weeks now....soooooo close! And SO ready to be not pregnant any more :-) I have loved so many moments of this pregnancy and the very unique experience that it is but I can't wait for our little Bella to just be here and for me to not get winded putting socks on! It was a very eventful December and it really did fly by. I cannot believe that it is 2010 now and that Bella will be here in about a month. There are still so many little things to do and get ready around the house and errands to run! I have had some not so fun headaches and after 2 different doctor ordered trips to labor and delivery this week the nurse told me last night that I am now officially on bed rest. It will be interesting figuring out how to sit still and not do things when there are so many things to be done! I will get more clarification on what my bed rest means from my doctor this week but the nurse told me I can get up to go to the bathroom and to make a sandwich but that is about it. Something tells me I will be doing a lot of crocheting baby blankets and organizing in small doses from a seated position and ordering my visitors around :-). I'm sure Rowdy is so excited (ha!). Maybe Bella will make her entrance a little early and relieve her mother from this bed rest! I'm so excited for what this year holds and am looking forward to enjoying every moment with friends and family (and getting back out of the house will be great too!). I will update with a new belly picture soon I am sure, once I don't look like I spent a few hours in the hospital!

Here is adorable Rowdy putting together the glider, he has become quite handy with all the assembly required!

He may have gotten a little distracted by the movie we were watching :-)

Here is a peek into Bella's room, it is really coming along! It is basically done (we have a few more things to hang but that is about it!

Here are my GORGEOUS curtains hanging in the room that the fabulous Shelagh made, I absolutely love them!

There is a plaque that is going above the crib, that will be a project in the next few days/weeks while I am home and I love the little rocking horse that my mom got for Bella. Of course Rowdy (the big grown up that he is) put one of Bella's stuffed animals on the horse like it is riding it.

Here is a view into Bella's very full closet! She has so many adorable outfits and I am now addicted to the smell of Dreft, baby clothes are the best (I'm sure I will be eating those words once the laundry really starts to pile up)

Here are the super cute letters that my friend Christy made, we have been so blessed to have such sweet friends (and creative ones) make so many special things for Bella that really make her room unique. I love going in there, it is so relaxing!

On the left is a list of things to pray for your child that Christy wrote for me, it is so special and makes me cry when I read it! On the right is an adorable cross that Rowdy bought for his baby girl's room, it is so special!

More to come soon!
