TRAVEL WITH US: SEATTLE PIKE PLACE MARKET

Pike Place Market is definitely a must see if you’re in Seattle.  Even thought Roman and I have been there many many times it’s a place that we’ll never get tired of visiting. All the chaos and tourists make it that much more exciting 😉 Also, make sure to stop by and pick up a fresh bouquet of flowers. They’re cut daily so the flowers are absolutely gorgeous and only $10!

 

LAUNDRY DAYS WITH DREFT PURTOUCH

Hi Everyone! Mondays are laundry days for me. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I made laundry a part of my Monday’s chores… I mean, Monday is difficult as it is, right? By the way, how cute are these pictures of Eloise in her laundry basket?  So stinking cute!

Some of you have asked about the detergent that we use so I’ve made a blog post all around that… We use DREFT pur-touch baby detergent and we LOVE it. You know that incredible baby smell? Well, this detergent is just that in a bottle… I think I might just buy this detergent when Ellie grows up just to remember her lovely baby smell… Oh, if only our babies could stay little for a little longer 🙁 This particular detergent is made with 65% plant based ingredients,  hypoallergenic, and it removes 99% of baby food stains. In other words, it’s not harsh like other detergents, smells amazing and does the job!

Hi Everyone,

I can’t believe I’m doing my 39 week pregnancy update! We’re so so close to meeting our little one that it seems surreal to me! I am definitely feeling exhausted and am over being pregnant at this point. Nonetheless, I’m extremely grateful to God for every moment of this beautiful journey.

HOW FAR ALONG: 39 weeks!

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 149 pounds :/ seriously, how is this even possible? lol

MATERNITY CLOTHES: of course… nothing else fits 🙂

STRETCH MARKS: Nope!

SLEEP: I don’t remember what it feels like to sleep through the night.. but it’s ok 🙂 all worth it!

BEST MOMENT RECENTLY: Setting up the nursery! It’s such a delicate and girly room. Can’t wait to show it to you all.

MISS ANYTHING: SLEEP!

MOVEMENT: Not feeling as much movements but they’re definitely stronger.

FOOD CRAVINGS: Pomegranates

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: No

LABOR SIGNS: Lots of pre-labor contractions. Baby is super low, so low that doctors are able to feel her head when checking my cervix. Lol TMI, I know 😉 Was also told that I’m currently 2cm dilated.

MOOD: Anxious, in a good way. Definitely feeling like I’m exhausted from being pregnant and am ready to meet our little girl.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Meeting our baby! I still can’t believe that soon we’re going to be parents of two!
