Nursery Sneak at 41 weeks..

finn craft
That was the before and after of the onesie. I wanted it to stay a little more dark gray...but like I said before, the bleach should have been in more of a squirt gun form. I had it in a big spray bottle.  I just ironed the letters onto my dyed onesie, then used the spray bottle with bleach to spray it, and then immediately washed it off.  Even immediately washing it off, it already got this light.  I will try again, for sure.  Not a total failure.

Today is officially 40 weeks and 5 days of my pregnancy.
I never thought I would be here.
But I'm doing just fine.
I did have a minor meltdown to Brandon today.
But, hey, lots of hormones flying around here. I think that is to be expected. Sometimes I just don't know if he is ever coming out.  But I have to chill out when I start to get like that.
He is coming.
Just maybe in his own timing. Which is FINE. And a good lesson to me. We talked about that. HUMILITY.

In fact, it has been funny because in stores, when people ask when I am due and I say, "Last Friday" they actually have the opposite reaction they used to, "Oh girl, you are doing great! You look awesome! I can't believe you are out running around, you look wonderful". So, I have decided what to do during the next pregnancy. Around 30 weeks, just tell people you were due last week. Then they will be nice to you instead of telling you that you are huge.

YES! Problem SOLVED!

finn room
This is a sneak peek of Finn's room. For some reason, I still don't feel like it is totally how I want it, but that is probably because I will always be changing it.  I will take more pictures when I have my other lens to do it. The 50mm doesn't work perfect in a dark, cramped space.

Off to deliver some meals to friends, neighbors.
My sweet, 90 year old neighbor passed away this week (so sad...but exciting to know she is rejoicing with her savior!), and her 65 year old son who lived with her is pretty lonely. So, I'm taking him some things and then taking another friend a meal.  Her baby had surgery last week.  Actually, sort of a prayer request thrown in here...he had surgery on a kidney issue...and Finn has a tad bit of extra fluid on his secretly I think I'm a little scared he could end up with that. Although tons of boys have this issue and it self corrects once they are born and pee regularly outside the womb.

So can be praying that Finn's kidneys would just flush themselves out as he stays bundled up in  my tummy :)
