**Lately I feel like I don't have anything to really blog about...although I actually do. Lazy? Maybe. Tired? Definitely! Rainy weather dampening my mood? For sure...
**Last nite Isabella wanted to sleep with Mommy and Daddy. So I let her...it seems like the closer to Madelyn's arrival the more she just wants to be with me. As I was drifting off to sleep listening to her deep, sleepy breathing Madelyn started moving around--it was so sweet because every little move bumped Bella and at that moment I really felt like it was a perfect moment.
**We got down Isabella's baby swing this weekend. When she was little she would barely go in it...now that it's out? She's napped in it, swung in it, watched tv in it and she even puts her baby in it. It's so adorable!
**And for some big news--Isabella went poopy on the potty!! I couldn't believe it! I say that is a step in the right direction and to see how proud she was...what a big girl!
**Her room is almost done now. We just need to finish hanging everything up on the walls. We finally moved furniture around in our house so she and Madelyn can have their play room. Isabella's bedroom looks sooo much better without all of her toys taking over her pretty bedroom!
**I treated myself to a pedi and mani this weekend. Ahhh...it was SO relaxing. I haven't had a real pedi in quite some time so this was perfect. I went all out and got all of the extras--and for those couple of hours of me time? It was totally worth it!
**I am now 36 1/2 weeks along. I've been having an enormous amount of braxton hicks--it's out of control sometimes how many I have! My appointment is tomorrow and I'm excited to finally be in the home stretch. I can't wait for my little Madelyn to arrive!
**Isabella always asks to see Sissy. She kisses my tummy, puts lotion on my tummy and talks to her. It's adorable! Friday morning I was napping and Leo was doing some picking up around the house before our friends arrived and I woke up to Isabella talking to Sissy and putting baby lotion all over my belly. Ha! I love my little girl, she's such a sweetie!
**And finally, Isabella LOVED all of our fireworks. We couldn't bbq that nite due to the 5 inches of rain that fell (and we haven't had rain forever! Go figure it'd rain on the 4th *smile*) so Leo and our friend went and picked up Mellow Mushroom pizza (yummm). We gobbled it up and ran out to watch their fireworks show. It was a blast. Isabella would squeal and clap and if one caught her by surprise she would say, "Woooah...scar-wee!" Adorable I tell ya!
