Greg finally saw his first rodeo!
After enjoying some good eats and company we made some desserts for the arrival of my family later that night. Last year, Greg made a coconut cake with blueberries and strawberries on top in the shape of an American flag. We decided to keep the tradition going and it turned out just as good. Trey brought home a girl, Molly, to introduce us to. We were all so excited because none of us have ever even heard him talk about dating and now he is bringing a girl home! We made her favorite cookie, peanut butter with Reeses in the middle. My personal favorite! When they got home, we enjoyed some dessert and took some cookies with us to snack on while we enjoyed fireworks. It was fun, and we enjoyed meeting Trey's significant other.
39 Week "selfies"
This was one of my longer walks, I keep track of all of them. I can definitely tell which days I have more energy and which days I kind of waddle along. I almost walked 6 miles this day. In fact, I think I walked over 6 miles. This GPS is kind of off a little bit. But who is counting!? I made this walk when I was exactly 39 weeks pregnant. Walking really helps the swelling in my feet, but makes the swelling in my hands worse!
They always feel SO weird. A comparison picture....
I found a new, very nice, little contraption for additional help with the feet. It is a cold, tight wrap that my dad is letting me use! I know the cold pack doesn't help the swelling go down, but it feels marvelous. The tightness on the skin definitely helps, especially as I keep my feet up while they are wrapped.
I also wanted to document the application I used through the ENTIRE pregnancy, even when I was only 5 weeks along. I look forward to every Wednesday when we can say that we have gotten a week closer! Every Wednesday I would ask Greg, "do you know what today is!?" And we would read some general things in the application about her general development for the week. It would give us comparisons to how big she is, like at 37-40 weeks they compare her to the size of a watermelon. A little round for a baby but alright, you get the idea? I guess? I did like the comparisons because I could picture about how big she was.
39 weeks and 3 days!
I thought the shadow pictures were funny....
Then my dad joined in! Push the belly out!
Waiting, waiting, waiting!!!
I love toe nail polish. I love nail polish, period! I can't reach my feet comfortably and so painting them isn't fun. I have this weird nesting idea that my toe nails need to be a color I really like and they have to look good before I go to the hospital. I have reached a point where I asked Greg if he would paint them for the big day and he gladly did it!
Step One: The initial color!
Step Two: add some pizazz! In this case, glitter.
Step three: touch ups! He even got my blow dryer and tried to speed up the drying process.
They turned out great! And I really enjoyed getting my nails done.
