Lolli's room...

31 weeks, over 7 months along. Contracting like crazy and feeling very close to the end now. I would put money on the fact that i wont make it all the way to my due date. Doc told me to start taking it easier so i don't have preterm labor. Uterus is still measuring a couple weeks further along than my dates. My bet is on april 28th. Wanna venture a guess?
 
Lorelai's lamp... i love her jungle room. Sure its not super girly but neither am i so I think she'll like it. Chris has gotten inspired and will start designing stuff for her walls after finals.

So this is not a great picture but I wanted english mum and dad to see the stroller and car seat they bought for us. These are just the pictures on the box. Its brown and orange and red. We got it out the other day to figure out how to use it but i forgot to take pictures! My brain hasnt been functioning correctly lately... I am so tired all the time. Working full time while making a human being is getting more and more difficult but I plan to stay until she comes. 


So lorelai has had a rough week what with developing her higher brain functions and finishing off those major organs. So I figured Lolli deserved a nice little treat... her room is slowly but surely coming together and we are feeling more and more ready for her to come. Her crib is all set up with the bedding my mommy bought (thanks mom!) and the rocking chair has a diaper cake on it... genius idea. Not only do i have a bunch of diapers now to get me started but Its so stinkin cute. Her little sock money is holding her place for her in the crib. Thanks katey!! The first present lorelai got when i was like 4 weeks along and we didnt even know she was a lorelai yet was a little sock monkey from katey jensen (who i should call aunty katey since she is practically related what with having my maiden name and all). And katey is throwing a party for lolli at the end of this month! thanks again!! We are spoiled parents. 

ode to hadley




I am a fabulous brainwasher. If you ask my niece hadley who loves her the most she will answer with an enthusiastic "katie!" While i believe this to be entirely true, her mother, grandmother, and other aunts disagree somewhat fervently. To prove that I really do love hadley the most, I have decided to write an entire post about her.

Hadley is pretty much the coolest chic around. She is sweet as sugar but she has a mischievous side that reminds me just a touch of myself as a kid. She loves to dance and run around and until recently those were my favorite things too. It has taken some adjusting on hadleys part what with me being pregnant and sick and not able to run around as much anymore but she is very understanding. Last time I was in Vegas for my baby shower she came up to me on the very last night and just snuggled me and lorelai. She is pretty much my best friend. 

For Valentines day we made sugar cookies and decorated them... hadley is just too pretty for her own good. Proof: Just look at the pictures above. Love you little hadders.
