  1. Fun post. Congrats on the new little darling coming your way. LOVE smocking. Lolly and now H.G. have tons of smocking.

  2. Love this! Enjoy the lukewarm decaf! ;)

    Hello Newlywed Life Blog

  3. Love this post! May have to borrow it one of these days.

  4. Love this!! And I love that you're having a girl that will wear dresses and pink! I can't wait to meet her! How do you like Happiest Toddler? I have it, but haven't opened it yet (although I really need to).

  5. So sweet. I'm down for that 5 hour nap myself.

  6. Love this!! Dreaming about the babe is so much fun and I love that we are only 3 weeks apart!! Now if only we could do Mat leave together!

  7. What a cool post! A 5 hour nap sounds awesome! Don't worry about how you dress the little lady she'll look great no matter what!

  8. I love those little dresses you got for your little girl!

  9. Those dresses are so cute! I thought about getting a doppler with Jackson, but never did. It would be cool to hear their heartbeat whenever I wanted to. :-)

  10. I highly recommend reading The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding! It is by far the best breastfeeding book. Also, attend some La Leche League meetings while you are still pregnant. It will help with your confidence. :-)

  11. What maternity spanx?!? How did I not know about this!!

  12. Love this! :) Can't imagine how exhausted you must be trying to keep up with Mac and grow that little one. I have been working on a gallery wall and going back to look at yours for inspiration. I love all of the color in yours!

  13. Adorable! Especially the making :)

  14. Love this! So much better than the weekly updates I do...may have to steal this occasionally! And again, good luck with picking out her name...even after scouring lists all weekend, we are no where closer than where we were last week!

  15. eeek! yay for making a human teeny tiny baby girl!!!

  16. Very cute! You'll love having one of each! She'll be here before you know it!

  17. Love this so much! Yay for making a human! ;)

  18. Love this! PLL, OMG so good huh?! Can't wait to find out what you're going to name Mim....I'm still struggling in the name department too. Robbie, of course, is set on one of each and I'm just not so sure! Why is it so hard?!

  19. Girl clothes are dangerous- I am banning myself for any more Dell Harper purchases. I peruse for Deeds some clothes and end up with more girl stuff!

  20. Such a great recap of what's up with you and your growing family! :)

  21. Loving your list! Hope you don't mind if I borrow the format for one of my updates ;) Those dresses are so stinking cute. We are waiting until the birth to find out the gender just like we did last time, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for another girl if for no other reason than to be able to use all of the sweet little girly clothes again! looks like boys are a barrel of that would be okay too :)
