34 Weeks! I can hardly believe it. We only have three (or less) of these bi-weekly photos and updates to do. Craziness!

34 Weeks

We are nearing the end, folks. And we couldn’t be more excited! I have definitely been feeling the nesting mode for a while now. I am ready to have everything ready for Gideon’s arrival! My hospital bag is pretty much all packed and last night Jonathan setup Gideon’s bassinet in our room. This morning when Liam saw the little crib he was very excited to learn that it was our baby’s bed. He is so excited for his little brother to get here!

I have still been having tons of contractions most days, haha. I guess this is just the norm for me during this pregnancy. Some days are crazier and more painful than others. Monday was one of those days for me. The contractions ranged from about 3-10 minutes apart all day and many of them were pretty painful. They have since slowed down and become sporadic, so I think we are still good to go for a little bit. I go for my weekly appt on Friday, so it will be nice to get an update from the doctor.

Once we hit 37 weeks on July 7th, I would be totally fine with Gideon coming a little early. :)

12-34 Weeks

Next week, June 29th, is Liam’s 2nd Birthday. I can’t believe that it’s almost been 2 years already! What an amazing 2 years it has been. I’ve been going through old photos of my pregnancy with him and his birth day photos. It’s wonderful reminiscing on that time with him, and great to think that soon we will be experiencing the same thing with our little Gideon. :) Exciting times, for sure. We have so much to be thankful for!

Happy Friday!

Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? It’s been overcast and rainy (with some thunderstorms) here the past couple of days, and the forecast is saying it’ll be much of the same over the weekend. I’m hoping it will clear up some so we can go to the pool and Farmer’s Market tomorrow. Even if it does rain, I’m just excited to spend lots of time together as a family. Weekends are my favorite now!

Here are a few of my favorite finds from across internet this week…

Hope you have an amazing weekend, my friend!

As we are nearing our due date (July 28th!), the reality is starting to slowly sink in…soon we will have another son here to love and care for! I am so excited! I often think of how Liam and Gideon will grow up together and get to be the best of buds.

I’ve had people ask me if I’m concerned about how Liam will react (negatively) to having another baby in the house. Honestly, when I think of adding another kiddo to our family, I only have positive thoughts. Although I’m sure there will be some challenges along the way, I expect it to be a great transition! Growing up, my siblings were my best friends (and still are). We had our normal sibling squabbles every now and then, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. We got to spend every day together and would share the most exciting adventures. I have heard it said that the best gift you can give your child is a brother or sister, and I am excited to give Liam that gift (and hopefully a couple more after this one)! :)

The other night, while saying our bedtime prayers, Liam said “Gideon” for the first time while we were praying for him. It completely melted my heart. Now he’ll pat my belly and say “Baby Gideon” every once in a while. So precious.

It is very exciting to think that within the next couple of months our little guy Gideon will be here!
