Another week down y'all! Can't believe we have SIX weeks left until we meet our son! We have been steadily checking things off of our list and asking friends that have babies what was the thing they couldn't do without, in hopes of having everything we can possibly think of on hand (and during our trip home with Greyson) I think we are pretty good to go. We took my van in to have it looked at, to make sure it was ready for a long trip. It got a clean bill of health, so that was the last major thing to be checked off! The last thing I will do is pack our bags, but that's not for a few weeks yet.. 

In other news, my freezer is almost FULL! I have come a looong way since my first pumping days.. I have had some ups and downs with inducing, but I am glad it has worked out as well as it has.. Ultimately I think Greyson will have to be supplemented with formula, BUT he will get breastmilk for as long as possible. My stash looked like this before:

Early days of pumping

 And this is what my deep freezer looks like now:
3 more bags can go in and maybe 2 more can lay on top!

 I have actually stopped pumping as many times a day and cut back what i am freezing to 6oz a day, otherwise my freezer would be full already and I would be throwing milk out, something I hate to do. This is the best of both worlds, I can still pump and freeze, but at a slower rate. 

Aaand in more other news. I have most of Greyson's newborn and 0-3mos clothes washed and put away (So much fun and I smiled the entire time)...
 At my 2nd baby shower, my friend got him this adorable outfit to wear for Christmas and I CANNOT WAIT!:
Santa feet!

Santa butt! I die at the cuteness!

Lately, I fantasize about who he is going to look like! I look at John's baby picture and my baby picture and wonder if he will have my eyes or his dad's.. I know already from the u/s pic that he has his daddy's nose! Cannot wait to see his sweet face! So yeah, I have been looking at these two pictures ALOT!
Greyson's nose looks just like this now!

Hopefully he doesn't have my big ol' head!

Last but not least, things are just boring right now (which is a good thing) nothing to report until next Friday, when she has another OB appt. She said she is ready for him to be evicted though, he's wearing out his welcome, so it's a good thing we are getting close to the end, LOL! I will leave you with the 33 week picture from this afternoon that Christy sent me! 

OK, until next week! Enjoy your weekend!


  1. You were a CUTE baby! Wow :). Six weeks is such a short time. We were all staying in a small hotel room after birth and a dumb little $20 white noise maker was a huge help. We kept it near the crib and it kept Baxter from being startled when the phone rang or the dog started barking.
    6 weeks - Yay!

    1. Cloud B makes a giraffe, but it plays calming noise like waterfalls and animals on the Serengeti, is that the same thing? That's the one we have.. If not I must hunt for this white noise one ASAP! Thanks!

  2. 6 weeks is going to fly by! Yippee!
