Lately.

I wish I had a good excuse for being so absent from this little space of mine, but really there's been a lot of ice cream eating, cleaning and even more napping.

Today is my due date and no signs of Aubrey babe. 


The husband and I have been walking on the daily and trying just about everything (safe) to help this babe move along. Still no signs. I would've bet money she would have been here by now.. so maybe that's why I've been so impatient. Not to mention the further we go from here, the more likely an induction might happen and that just plain scares the crap outta me. I know it's done on the daily, but the unknown freaks me out. Especially because Rae's birth was super easy. 
This has been on my heart  "Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of Gods wholeness, everything coming together for goof, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life." -Philippians 4:6-7 


I know we'll be taken care of, but man oh man I am ready to hold our babe and to not be pregnant anymore. 

In other news, my mom's here! She came sometime last week and it's always so nice to have her around. Rae is loving it.. literally goes around screaming "lola! lola!" everywhere making sure she is always close by. I can't even tell you how much of a help she's already been just having her here. 


and this weekend we celebrated handsome's birthday with some sushi and red velvet cake/cheesecake! 

Here's to hoping we have a baby this week :) happy Monday, friends!

  2. Happy due date!!!!!!!!!!! I was induced with Waverly, the day after my due date, and although it was a long labor, everything turned out perfect! Best wishes to you (and lots of labor thoughts!) your way! So excited for you, mama - can't wait to hear the good news! XO

  4. I feel you. Last week was especially emotional for me (tears on the daily). I would have given anything to go into labor- but alas this babe is stuck and making her debut on her scheduled c-section date. I swear these second babes are stubborn already... Or nice n relaxed? Regardless. Hang in there. I'm rooting for us.

  8. LOVE that picture of you and the hubs! And you seriously look AMAZING, momma! I can't wait until you're snuggling sweet Aubrey in your arms! (I was induced with Mia and it went so smoothly that I'm convinced that's the way to go, ha ha! I'm actually terrified of going into labor on my own with my next babe, yikes! But I'm also all about the drugs, so I'm not sure how awesome it would be to be induced if you don't want an epidural.)

  9. Awww, so sweet Rae loves her Lola so much, it will be so nice to have her around for Rae to get some extra special attention. I hope you don't have to wait much longer to meet your sweet babe!! You are looking great!

  10. I guess that is sort of unusual, to go past your due date after the first child [I don't know, I only have one, but I think I've heard this?] Guess your new babe is just really enjoying herself in there! :-)

    You must be on pins and needles, waiting to feel something any minute. Good luck!
