Preparing for Baby #2

So to be honest, I haven't done much preparation this time around. Well, when you have already had one boy it eliminates a lot of things. But I do have my own sewing machine this time, so I was able to make a few things. First I wanted to make matching blankets for the boys, so that they would match when they are in the same room together. For Gavin the colors I focused on were Red, Yellow, and Blue. So I decided to do blue and white blankets and then I will continue adding red, yellow accents. We have already moved the crib into our room so I can't get a great picture of the final product with the crib. But I made the skirt, bumper pads, and blanket. Gavin has a matching rag quilt on his bed as well.

If you look closely you can see the long sides on the bumber pads have pockets along them in case you want to store things in there, like a rattle, books, or pacifier.
I also made a few tie onesies and matching ties for Gavin so that the boys can match at church. Not all the time, but every once in a while.
I bought tons of this fabric in different colors, inspiration from makeit-loveit.com, to make for various baby gifts. So, I figured I would make a quick blanket for the baby. 
 I also made a carseat cover, a pretty simple project, and I am happy with how it turned out.
 Gavin of course wanted his picture taken as well.

 I had Zac take these last friday at just over 38 weeks. I posted the one in the bathroom just because it is a good belly shot, he wasn't supposed to be taking my picture.

I had a shower a few weeks ago. Thanks to all my wonderful friends for coming. Because there isn't a ton that I need, I figured we should just have a girls lunch and we enjoyed Olive Garden Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks. And my friend Michelle made red velvet cake. Thanks to all you wonderful girls for the great gifts! We appreciate it so much! And we missed those that weren't able to make it.
And this was taken last night, just before my last Zumba class. I know, don't you wish you looked like me? :) 39 weeks!

I have cleaned out closets, cleaned bathrooms, organized drawers. I really just need to go through things like the refrigerator and pantry and we should be ready. I am definitely ready to meet this little boy, and I think Gavin and Zac are ready too. Everytime I get ready to leave the house Gavin asks if I am going to the hospital. About 7 more days and I should hopefully be getting induced on Monday. Hopefully this week will go by quickly!


  1. Good for you for continuing Zumba throughout your pregnancy! This baby is going to come out dancing! :) I wish you a speedy last week and a smoother delivery than Gavin's! ;) Congrats!

  2. That is AWESOME that you are still doing Zumba! I REALLY want to do Zumba still with my next pregnancy...any tips on how to still do it as late as you are in your pregnancy? Has it helped with body aches etc? Good luck on Monday! The second delivery is sooo much better!

  3. WOW!! You look fantastic!!!! You don't even look pregnant, it just looks like you stuck a basketball under your shirt...except a little smoother like 3/4 of a basket ball. :) Good luck with the delivery and recovery! Hopefully things will go a lot smoother than they did with Gavin. Also, good job on all of your sewing projects. They look great, and I like your "pocket in the bumper" idea :)
