playing the waiting game…


I completely forgot how long and exhausting the final weeks of pregnancy are. Especially when I’m on very limited activity.

So. Not. Fun.

But it’ll all be worth it when our baby girl arrives!

Luckily she’s got a brand spankin’ new nursery to look forward too.

There’s a few more final touches I’d like to do… but here’s the latest pic.

So far we absolutely love it!!

It’s been organized ten times, cleaned ten times… even disinfected ten times (I know… I’m crazy).

On the right side of the window is the stork canvas that I had made. We love it!! If it looks a little blurry that’s because I blurred the baby’s name out. We’re waiting till the big day to reveal the name 😉

So basically, there’s nothing left for me to do but play the waiting game. The rest of my week is filled with doctor’s appointments, and a lot of resting.

I’ll be back on Monday with another update 🙂

P.S. Thank you so much for sticking with me during this crazy & exciting time of my life. I hope to be back to regular recipes & kiddie lunch box ideas when we get settled in some sort of routine. Thanks again 🙂

    The nursery is adorable! What a great place for her. I have to ask, how are you keeping up with your daughter if you are on bed rest? I have a 2 year old and I can barely sit down for a minute while he’s awake!

    Hang in there Estela! I agree those last weeks are so tough and I went a week over with both kids making it 41 weeks of waiting. 😉 Best of luck if you have her soon!

    Beautiful nursery! I just finished up our toddlers room today, off with the crib and into a big boy bed (still toddler size) yesterday 🙁
    Good luck during this last week or so. She will be in your arms soon. 🙂

    Take care of yourself and your little one. Our thoughts are with you all.
