So I don’t know if it’s pregnancy related or not but lately I’m able to pull of 3 days (I haven’t tried more than that) without washing my hair! And to make it even more awesome, I don’t have to use dry shampoo! It HAS to be related to pregnancy hormones because I’ve never been able to go 2 days even using dry shampoo.

I haven’t posted a single update for this pregnancy and I feel really bad. Not necessarily for any of you readers but mostly for our little one! Who knows how long I’ll continue to blog but I don’t want this little baby to feel neglected when she reads through my blog to see several updates throughout Peyton’s pregnancy but only one – at 32 weeks! – of her pregnancy. So this might be a lengthy post but stick with it! If you’re interested. :)
We moved Peyton out of the nursery at the end of March. She’s now in what was the guest room but is now her big girl room! It’s bigger than the nursery – more room for her toys and playing! – and it’s farther away from our room – which makes no difference, really, because I think our walls are made of paper.
I was completely against the idea of moving Peyton at first. We decorated that room for her and I didn’t want to take it away from her. But the idea of having a baby in a bigger room didn’t make sense. So I agreed it would be best to move her. I was nervous she wouldn’t transition well (I was dreading multiple middle of the night wake ups) but she didn’t have a single problem.
Indie had a 6-week post-surgery check-up at the vet on Friday and the doctor gave us the go-ahead on physical therapy – short 10-15 minute walks that gradually increase in length as the week progresses. Her walks started the next day and so did my shin splints. Ouch. They were better today during her walk after dinner, thank goodness, but shin splints are no joke!
We had a guest speaker at church on Sunday, Daniel Fusco. He actually grew up in the Old Bridge, NJ area and is a 3x church planter currently living outside of Portland, OR. He mentioned his book, Honestly: Getting Real about Jesus and Our Messy Lives, and I’m very interested in reading it.
I came home from Indiana with my mom’s sewing machine and a bolt of Winnie the Pooh fabric at the beginning of February. I spent a few hours one Saturday afternoon picking fabric to coordinate with the Winnie the Pooh fabric and started my journey to make a quilt for our baby girl coming in June.
I used this cute hipster baby quilt as my inspiration. I like the more modern look with the large rectangles of fabric and the simple stitching.
