ten on ten {july 2014} & waiting for baby

What we have been up to: I actually managed to remember that it was the tenth on Thursday and I took my pictures happily for 10 on 10 all day. I have been pretty miserable. I’m very thankful that a sweet baby boy is growing in my body but pregnancy is very hard on my me and this 3rd one has been no exception. Between the gestational diabetes, insomnia and PUPPP {a really itchy and painful pregnancy rash} I’m officially over it. My days are mostly spent trying to survive and deal with the fatigue, aches, pains and itches {as well as trying to eat every 3 hours, test my blood sugar and drink plenty of water}. My sweet kids are having to be pretty independent these days. Paige is in love with listening to The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe and Grant is quite the Lego-maniac {and they are fighting a lot…but with mommy so “out of commission” I guess I don’t blame them}. The days are drawing closer to baby’s due date and I cannot wait to meet him! We still don’t have a name for him but we are hopeful that we will land on one soon enough!

Here are a few of the things I’ve watched, read, shopped for & listened to while spending my days resting. I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired {and entertained} me!

1. online shopping {for Baby & Mommy}: Zulily/Amazon {prime}/Target.com

2. reading & drinking: The Nesting Place/McDonald’s diet Sweet Tea {the only product I have found that does not taste like a diet drink}

3. nesting {setting up my favorite baby products}: Swing Mamaroo  4moms/Baby Co-sleeper Arm’s Reach/Blankets & Bedding Aden & Anais

4. dealing with my PUPPP rash: Coconut Oil/Pine Tar Soap {smells like a campfire but really helps with the itching}

5. watching lots of TV {especially in the middle of the night when dealing with my insomnia}: Property Brothers/Fixer Upper on HGTV & Magnolia Homes /Tree House Masters on Animal Planet/Food Network {Guy’s Grocery Games, Food Network Star, Cutthroat Kitchen}

6. listening to a few of my favorite Pandora stations: Nashville {music from the TV show}/Waiting Here for You {no pun intended, I just love this song and Christy Nockels}

home on the range {our baby boy’s nursery}

So now that I know we are having a boy I have been day dreaming, nesting &  planning ahead for our baby’s little space in the world. A place where I can rock him, feed him, hold him, swaddle him, wake him up and put him to sleep. Right now I am planning for a rustic/vintage room with western elements {think Southwest, Cowboys & Indians, Horses, Navajo, Antlers, Feathers, Boots…all that fun stuff}. A place where he can dream of the wild west and where we can pray over him. My prayers for him will be for his life, his heart, his mind and that he may be a little warrior that knows how to have fun & be adventurous…and most of all BRAVE. The Lord has really put it on my heart {in the last few years} to pray for my kids to be smart and strong and BRAVE! I do not want them to be afraid of this world that is filled with so much pain, but empowered by the strength of Jesus {knowing that “God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:17} God’s word tells us in Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS. Do not be terrified; Do not be discouraged. FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.” That is a verse I pray my children cling to their whole life {as I have}…I pray it will spur them on to do mighty things for God’s kingdom and for this hurting world. Be BRAVE my little one!
More on this to come as I nest and prepare for baby! In the meantime you can see what I have been up to. Check out the idea board I created below at Polyvore {see sources below} and click on over HERE to see what I have pinned on Pinterest!
