6 weeks left!

We have finally made it to 34 weeks! I am sure that time will fly by as we get through the Holidays. We have a pretty busy schedule this next month, which I am pretty grateful for. We leave for Tennessee tomorrow afternoon to visit with Reed's side of the family. I am excited to have us all together and spend some time together, just relaxing!
Last week was pretty crazy for us, but God is good and has continued to take care of us, even in our frustrations and pain. It was so great to get to see Anna last week. We even got to see her "practicing" her breathing for when she hits the real world. Although, I am glad she is taking more time to develop and grow, I am really anxious to get her here! I am ready to hold her in my arms and not just in my tummy! And I know Reed is really ready to hold her!
I feel so blessed to have Reed as my husband. He takes such good care of me. I have needed him to do more of the little things for me lately, and he is always so gracious about doing them. Reed cleaned all of our carpets this week, all by himself, and even went grocery shopping (which he hates) by himself! He's been making meals and cleaning up the house and running tedious errands for me all week. I feel truly blessed!
Here are some pictures from Sunday. I know I look pretty tired. Sleeping has been very difficult lately. I wake up about every hour and find it hard to get back to sleep. Luckily I am able to take a nap in the afternoon of most days to make up for it. These pictures, were of course, before my nap.

9 weeks to go!

This last week, Reed and I were able to get a few more things ready for Anna's room. Things are beginning to come together. We only have 9 more weeks till her due date. We are getting pretty excited and can't wait for her arrival.

Butterfies. . . aren't they cute?

The paint on the closet doors was finally dry enough, so we were able to hang them.

We plan to buy little baskets to put in some of the cubby spaces.

Yesterday, we were able to pick up her stroller and car seat. We tried to stay neutral on most of our baby things, trying to plan for more kids, but I really wanted her to have pink on her stroller and car seat. I really like them and can't wait to put her in them!

As you can see, I just keep getting bigger and bigger! I am feeling pretty good, though. I am just really tired, all of the time! Luckily, it won't be long till she's here and it will all be worth it!

me at 30 weeks, 6 days.
