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!

pa151151-2

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m 31 weeks pregnant which means I’m only 9 weeks away from my due date, and that my friends, is so so soon!!! I’m due December 15th but based on how I’ve been feeling and my previous pregnancy I think this little one will be an earlier baby. My husband and I have pretty much settled on a name for our precious little girl but I still have that 2% doubt about it. I’ve grown up knowing that if I was to ever have a little girl I would name her (….) but now that I really am having a girl I”m a little nervous about calling her such a bold name. I just now realized how much easier it is with boy names! I can easily give you 5 names that I LOVE but with girls there’s only a couple and one of them is taken, my beautiful little niece has that name!!! The struggle is R E A L guys!

HOW FAR ALONG: 31 weeks

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 138 pounds, which puts me at 28 pounds total :/

MATERNITY CLOTHES: That’s all I can fit at the moment 😉

STRETCH MARKS: Nope!

SLEEP: WHAT SLEEP? Horrible, absolutely horrible. Just last night I woke up at 2 am and couldn’t go back to sleep until 4:30 am! I wake up several times per night to pee. Dark under eye circle game is currently really strong.

BEST MOMENT RECENTLY: Having my husbands mom visit from Washington. My son LOVES her so much and every time she’s over he’s just such a happy kiddo!

MISS ANYTHING: SLEEP!

MOVEMENT: TONS! Sometimes it’s a little scary because her movements can get really strong and painful.

FOOD CRAVINGS: None at the moment.

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: No

LABOR SIGNS: A LOT of braxton hicks! They are getting stronger and stronger the closer I get to my due date…. but nothing to worry about.

MOOD: Moody and very anxious. The closer we get to the due date the more nervous and anxious I’m getting.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Our 3D ultrasound. I haven’t seen our little girl since our 19 week ultrasound and I can’t wait to see how much she has grown. Has any one of you done a 3D ultrasound?

WE’RE HAVING A ….

Hi everyone! We’re super excited to finally share the gender of our little angel with you! We’re having a GIRL!!!!!! I don’t even know how to describe our excitement! We are so grateful to God for blessing us with a little girl! It still feels surreal to me. Every time someone asks me if I know the gender of our baby I blush… I’m that happy! We found out the gender of the baby at 13 weeks at a early gender scan clinic, however, my doctor told me that I shouldn’t trust the early scan which really made me sad because they told me that they were 100% sure it’s a girl.  A couple weeks ago my doctor confirmed that we are indeed having a girl and I went a little crazy with finally being able to buy cute little dresses and bows 🙂

Sometimes old wives tales are completely true! In my case, they seem to be 100% true. We got this beautiful little gender reveal box from Hudson & Heart CO and it’s one of those things that will stay with you forever. It’s a little box that has a quiz for you that will reveal some clues as well as a little gender lovey toy. David had a blast opening it and loves “Lucy the Lamb”. He says his little sister will love her little “babushka”. Lol, don’t ask me why picked that name for her, haha!

As always, thank you for all your support and kind messages! I appreciate every single one of them! You guys are the best!!!

XOXO
