Last week of pregnancy

This will be my last week of being pregnant forever. After next Monday, I don't have to worry about maternity clothes, swollen feet or heartburn that lasts days ever again! I'll never have the lingering question we want to have another kid, when should we have him/her, etc. Our family is complete and this momma is officially closing up shop for good!

It's kind of a bittersweet though. On one hand I'm going to miss all the amazing wonders of carrying my child around for 9+ months, on the other it'll be awesome to never have to take birth control pills or worry about getting pregnant ever again!

I'm going to cherish the memories of feeling Grady dance around in my stomach constantly and of Lily waking me up in the middle of the night making me laugh because she has the hiccups.

I'll try not to remember being nauseous 24/7 and the horrible allergic reaction I had to my prenatal vitamins while carrying Grady or the bad headaches and breathing issues I had with Lily that kinda went away in the 8th month.

All I can do now is enjoy these last 7 days, prepare myself for the sleepless nights that are right around the corner and get ready for the good times that these two angels will bring!

Snow, believe it or not and Lily's room

Grady had so much fun playing with daddy in the snow! He was running all around the front yard.

He loves sinking in the snow. The poor guy got so upset though when it was time to come inside.

I also finished Lily's room this weekend and wanted to share a few pictures of it. I'm in love with her room, it's so gorgeous to me. I'll have pics from her shower soon!!

My dad made Lily's wall letters :)

My dad and sister made Lily's growth chart!

Grady's 2!

Grady had a "ball" on his 2nd birthday. We just had my parents and sister's family over, but with Grady and Ross running around it sounded like we had over 20 people! :)
I made baseball cupcakes, hey I never said I was crafty people. My sister would've done a lot better job. The good news is that he didn't decide to chunk one at my head!! Though that would've made for a great picture.

He actually loved it!! The cupcake was devoured in 5 minutes :)

He got a ton of stuff for his birthday...which I told my parents and sister not to do! He played on his new slide the whole day. He was pooped come 8pm, so was mommy, which is why we decided not to have a big party this year!

I watched the video from his first birthday, man I can't believe how much he's changed in just one year. He was just walking but hadn't said but 1 or 2 his talking up a storm, climbing on our furniture and stairs and hitting/kicking balls.

It kinda made me sad to think this is his last birthday by himself. Don't know why...maybe just hormones. Next year we'll have to do something big for his 3rd! Maybe a bounce house or a petting zoo. :)
