No baby. Still pregnant. I always thought women were funny when they said how long the last few weeks of pregnancy seemed. You’ve known your due date the whole time, why does it seem long? But OH MY GOODNESS! They are right. I feel like time has stopped. I want to meet this boy SOOOOOO bad! And Mason is going bezzerk too! We can’t wait to welcome our son to the world. I went to the doctors this morning and the numbers aren’t promising for an early delivery or probably not even an on-time delivery. It feels weird to put this kind of info on the internet, but let’s say I’ve been at the loneliest number for 4 WEEKS! I’ll stay positive until my due date. But after that I’m allowed to turn into a monster right? So caution to my close ones… next week you’re not going to want to be around this cranky gal. Unless you have chocolate. Then we can be best friends. And by the way, Mason and I have tried EVERYTHING to get this baby out. Nothing is working. He’s happy where he’s at. I’m going to have a big, fat, late baby!!! Just like his momma! But at least I’ll win our little bet!
I took a little unplanned blog break last week to just be. And it was nice. During that time I got to thinking about how I want to juggle this blog and being a mom. I started this blog as a creative outlet, and will stay just that. A creative place for me. I have another place I keep private family records. So for those that worry this may turn into a family blog, you need not. I do, however, plan on soaking up as many moments of motherhood as I possibly can! And if that means less posting for a little while, then I’m okay with that. But in the end, I’m still me, and I know eventually I’ll want to get creating sooner rather than later after baby boy’s arrival, even if I’m sewing one handed while holding my babe with the other. Not sure if that’s possible. But I’ll find out! I’ve made the decision to create for the sake of creating and not to create for blog posts. And while the posting may be slower than usual, my blog will be so much better! The things I worked on last week with this attitude turned out so well and I love them! I’m really excited about the future of Lazy Saturdays!
And now for an apology for those that participated in the last Upcycled Thursday Link Party! Things did not go how I planned. I signed up for a month of link hosting and little did I know when the month was up, all the entries would be deleted. Lame, right!? I’m not sure if this error was on my end for not realizing it, or if this information was not posted on the hosting site. Either way, SORRY for all those who participated! After two months of trial I did come to a decision about the link party… I love it! But I think once a month would be too much. A lot more people entered the first one than the second one. So I plan on hosting one once a quarter. The next one will be in the fall after I get as settled into motherhood as I can. You will hear about it long before it starts. For those who entered the previous two, feel free to re-enter your projects when the time comes around! They were all so good!
Thanks to everyone that has sent in the pictures of things you created because you were inspired by Lazy Saturdays! You can read more about this here and feel free to keep sending in those pictures! That post is still in the works!
I’m feeling so blessed right now. Also a little uncomfortable, ha! But very blessed. A little boy is going to join Mason and me so soon. We already love him so much. Thank you so much for reading Lazy Saturdays! I love you readers… even you silent ones out there. Hopefully next week you’ll get to see the newest addition to our little family! Cross your fingers for me!
P.S. My dress is from Just Cottons, and adorable Etsy shop. And it’s actually not a dress, but a kaftan. I saw one here on Brandilyn and knew I “needed” one. I bought it as a gift to myself to come home from the hospital in. But I couldn’t wait to wear it! It’s so comfy! And Chetna, the shop owner, was awesome and sewed in some buttons along the neckline to make it nursing friendly. Great service!
Also, I know my roots are showing. Hard to believe my hair color isn’t natural, right? Ha! My hair stopped holding dye several months ago and I stopped trying to convince it to. Seriously, check out the difference in my hair color here! Oh pregnancy hormones, you’re so funny.
