ONE. I'm 32 weeks (8 months!) pregnant. How did that even happen? I blinked and it's June. Y'all, I'm having a baby next month! I'm talking less than 50 days. I'm simultaneously freaking out because I'm scared and freaking out because I'm so excited. My bump is large and in charge these days and I'm loving it. Thanks for all your sweet comments on IG last night when I posted this photo. I will admit that I'm really loving this pregnancy right now and seriously do feel beautiful with a big round belly. I know some of you are going to hate me for saying that, but I'm just so amazed at what my body can do. Of course, I'm exhausted and lose my breath just walking up the stairs, but feeling pretty good, all things considering. Full update blog post on all things pregnancy and baby Mim coming soon, I promise. (Also, for those of you that asked, this shirt is not maternity. I've got it tucked in to show off the bump, but it's actually drapey. I picked it up at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago and is the most comfortable thing ever. Go get one right now.)
TWO. Does anyone know of a good place to get faux floral arrangements that look real and won't break the bank? I want a vase of pretty silk peonies for Mim's nursery, but I can't find anything I like that's less than $200. Why in the world are fake flowers so expensive? I could buy real peonies every week for 2 solid years for that price. Also, the nursery is no where close to being finished (no rocker, no changing station, no curtains, no wall decor), yet I'm stressing out about one stupid vase of fake peonies. What is wrong with me?
THREE. I've been forcing Mac to take more selfies with me lately. Because I can, that's why. He hates the camera and I can never get him to look at it or smile. I want him to get over that asap. I am going to need Mac and Mim photos and he must get it together. Right now he tolerates getting phone photos taken much better than he does with the DSLR, so I'm starting there. I think it's because he can watch/see himself on the screen while I'm taking the photos. These were photos taken last week in Florida while we were riding on the golf cart (the happiest place ever) and it only took me about 19 shots before I got a tiny little smile from him. Success...I guess.
FOUR. Can a person overdose on lemonade? I worry that all the acid is going to pickle this little baby or burn out all my tastebuds, but the lemonade cravings continue. They're intense, too. I can't seem to go more than a few hours without some. Much easier to deal with than the Chipotle chicken taco obsession I had with Mac, but still bizarre to me. After I have this baby I probably won't be able to drink lemonade for the rest of my life.
FIVE. I FINALLY found a pair of sunglasses that Mac will wear. I think I've probably bought him 17 pairs of sunglasses and he won't wear any of them for more than a minute. We were in a beach shop last week in Florida and I made a last ditch attempt to try one more time and grabbed a pair off the rack for him to try. Lo and behold, he wore them all week long! On our final day he was playing with them during a diaper change and stretched them out so they wouldn't quite stay on his face anymore so I went back and bought 3 more pairs. They're super cheap and totally generic, so I have no idea who makes them or where I can find more, so fingers crossed they will get him through the summer. How cool (and adorable) does he look in his shades?!
