1 week left!

38 weeks 5 days belly shot!

I went to the dr. early this morning only to find out that, yep, you guessed it, nothing has changed. He said that he thought that maybe Jonah would sneak on by his due date. I think so too. He is happy as a lark in there apparently. I am going to start some serious praying for some kind of progression! I predict that I will have him on the 23 or 24 of January. I am working through this Saturday. I am pretty busy at work this week, so at least it will make it go by faster, but it will be tiring. By the end of most days, I want to cut my feet off. Especially if I've walked that morning. At least if Jonah is a little late, I will get to have a few days off work before his arrival.

Our final baby shower was this weekend at our church. We are so blessed! We received a lot of great gifts to finish up our necessities.
Here is a glimpse of the gifts before I unpacked them. In this pic, several of the gifts have been consolidated together. It took me about two hours to sort through them all at home. I finally got everything put away, washed, and organized.
I received these cute hooded bath towels with Jonah's name on them! Love them! Isn't the whale most appropriate?Jeremy's Grandma Walker made this quilt for Jonah. Jeremy got his love for farming from his grandparents. He and his cousins grew up working and playing at their house. Jonah got his middle name from J's grandpa, who passed away 3 and a half years ago.
I love how she signed it! My last grandparent died when I was 8 years old, so I think it's really neat that Jonah has a great grandma! Jonah will miss out on getting to know his Papa Chandler (my dad, who passed away in 2002) but he's lucky to have two grandmas, a grandpa, and two great grandmas that will love him to pieces!Check out this stool. It is the cutest thing! My friend, Krissi, had her sister paint it for Jonah. I love it. The paisley is soooo cute. Here's the bottom of the stool with the cow print!
Don't you love it? Such a good idea. Krissi said she liked having a stool to use while nursing. I can see how that would be very comfortable.

Here's my latest craft project. All I did was sew on the fabric and ribbon then have them embroidered, but it was fun.

Of course my collection would not be complete without some western print burp cloths. I love the font that they used to embroider. Its called 'boys are gross'...that doesn't seem appropriate to use, but it was a good pick.

I must get to work on cleaning up my house, because I am fading fast this evening. The last two nights I have woken up at 4 a.m. wide awake and I can't get back to sleep for at least an hour or two. I think God is trying to prepare me for some midmorning feedings to come. Jonah was awake both times. I will leave you with this oogy skin picture of my belly! Enjoy! Ha!Enjoy it in there, lil guy, cuz it won't be long...

I love the stool. After nursing you will love that stool for potty training and washing hands/teeth. Good times ahead! I can't believe it is almost over or should I say just beginning?! I love you!

I love the belly shot, you look just great. I'm so happy for you, motherhood will be so wonderful. And that stool is so cute. And I love those embroidered burp cloths, the fabrics & the way they wrote either the "J" or "Jonah". You can never have enough burp cloths. Looks like you are ready for little Jonah to arrive. Best wishes, let me know if I can help you with anything at all. Karen Barnes

It is going to fly by with how busy you are. I need to try to get in before Jonah comes-ahhh! I love the stool and burp rags, everything is set to go. My prediction is you'll go into labor and just move really fast-we'll see :)

Found your blog via Kelly's Korner! So cute. Congrats! I loooove that Jonah - Little Squirt - Whale thing. Adorable!

I totally remember those sleepless nights. I was just so uncomfortable by the end, that it happened all the time...could have had something to do with the fact that it was late July, early August! :) I can't wait to see you back to trim my hair after it has grown out a bit!

By the way, I think I missed Jonah's middle name...what is it again?

Jessica said...

CUTE!!! Girl, your belly looks awesome. Seriously. I have stretch marks so I am major jealous! Ha!

Angie said...

Oh Adri, I'm so excited for you! So many wonderful adventures to come! Presley was none too excited about coming out either. She eventually had to be extracted, and she let out a scream the likes of which I have never heard when they finally did get her out! LOL...maybe Jonah will be a bit more motivated. Either way, I will pray for a safe delivery for the both of you. Love you bunches. :)

How's it going? Are you still pregnant??? I packed my hospital bag last night and was kind of confused about what I would REALLY need. You'll have to let me know when you get home what the necessities were!

I can't believe I found you! How random. I'm glad I did, though. What cute things for Jonah! Can't wait to see pictures!
