A Little Catch Up And 37 Weeks

Ya'll, has it really been TWO WHOLE weeks since I last blogged?  Really, is that even possible?  I don't think I've ever taken a break this long, and to be honest it was completely unintended.  I guess life just sort of happened, and I got so caught up in it that I forgot to document the journey.

I suppose on the one hand it's a good thing.  On the other hand, I blog to document our life (the good, the bad and the ugly) So I really need to do some major backtracking.  My goal is to do two posts a day until Ellie makes her debut.  One will keep you updated on our last few days as a family of three, and the other will be a catch up post from earlier this month.  Sorry in advance!

So what are some of the topics, you ask?

1. Nursery Sneak Peek
2. Nesting
3.  Spring Fever
4. Work Shower
5. Mini Reunion
6. Fat Tuesday
7. 36 Weeks And A Few Goodies
8. Valentines Day
9. Taking It In

That should bring us to today's item of business...37 Weeks!!

How Far Along:  37 Weeks

Size of baby: Ellie is the size of a winter melon, but in my opinion she feels more like a watermelon!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm down a pound from last week which my doctor said was, "interesting."  Whatever that means...

Maternity Clothes: I'm down to about three outfits.  I could still wear some dresses, but it's too cold and my legs are just ugly right now.  

Gender: It's a girl...Elizabeth Victoria Watson!!!

Movement: She still let's me know she's in there, but she is certainly running out of room. 

Sleep: Everyone is sleeping quite well these days...praise the Lord!!

What I miss: Diet Coke, of course.  I would also love to have some polish on these toenails. One more thing, I really miss seeing our friends the Adkins.  It just seems like all of our nights are weekends are taken up by baby preparations which means we never get to see them.  Lucky for us they have two babies and understand!

Cravings: Nothing really.

Symptoms: After not having any contractions for over a week they started with a vengeance on Sunday.  They will start about 45 minutes apart and eventually make it about 3 minutes apart before they stop completely.  Not only can I physically feel my stomach tightening, I live when constant cramping in my abdomen and lower back.  I thought for sure I would have made a little progress this week, but NO!!  Oh well, Tylenol and a heating pad go along way.  Can you believe that we only have 12 days left?!!?

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
