I say “one perfect room” because the rest of our place is a Hot. Mess.
But last Saturday…(drum roll please) We finished the baby’s room!
It was a long ass day, and my feet, ankles and legs were SO swollen and gross by the end of it. But we are done! So without further ado…here are way too many pictures of his “Vintage Beach” room!
(In case you were wondering, US crib bedding will fit on a Swiss Ikea crib.)
Now this poster was kind of a PITA. I couldn’t find a frame to fit it really. The frame I got from Ikea was originally a collage frame, that we tried to center the poster on as best we could.
Whew! Are you still with me?!!
So yeah, that was Saturday! Then we went over the IL’s for dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. We gave D’s dad this shirt:
And I iced my feet and ankles to try and get some of the swelling down!
The next day (actual Father’s Day) D received a few gifts from my folks and me. I figured about a month away from being a dad in the physical sense was close enough!
The t-shirts will be too big for quite some time, but since D had the Cobra Kai shirt already, I had to get it. And he has quite a few “Rocky” shirts, plus I’m originally from the Philly area so… I got them, and the onesie from Zulily.
And here’s the shirt we had made for my dad:
My dad’s name is Don King, so Landon is sorta named after him!
Also last weekend we picked out 2 possible “coming home outfits” for Landon. Depending on his size.
On Monday I had a dinner with all the other Girl Scout troop leaders. It was bittersweet since I won’t be a leader anymore! It’s been fun the last 2 years. Here’s what I wore…
And I’ve started taking bare belly pics, so I can see if/when he “drops.” Nothing so far I don’t think…
Also, yesterday I had my 2nd chiropractic appointment. I don’t really think it helped :( I still have this deep-rooted pain in my lower right back. I go back on Friday. But yesterday was the first time I ever had stuff “cracked!” It was so weird! Other than that he did some stretching, massage and put what felt like a floor buffer on my lower back/butt. I wonder what Landon was thinking when that was going on!?? We went out to dinner last night to celebrate my BIL’s birthday, and I had to park kind of far away and walk down a big hill. Then sat for a few hours in the restaurant…so unfortunately when we got home, my back was in worse shape than ever! I could barely walk! Today it feels better than that, but still not great. I hope it goes away after I give birth and lose a little weight. I’m guessing it’s just from the fact that I am carrying all this extra weight and my body’s just not used to it..? Plus Landon seems to prefer hanging out on the ride side, so I’m guessing that’s why it’s on the right. Of course, what do I know?!!
So, that’s about it! I can’t believe next week I’ll be full term! Absolute craziness. I keep looking out for possible signs that things are moving along, but nothing really. Just a few moments of what feels like minor cramps, similar to when your period is about to start. I hope he doesn’t decide to keep us waiting too long!
