oh hey, friday | very exciting new things

Exciting things happened this week.
Let's not prolong it and hop right to it.

1 | 27 weeks
Guess who's 27 weeks pregnant?
And guess who feels 35 weeks pregnant?
Me. The answer is me.
The beginning of this pregnancy FLEW by, and these last few weeks have really been dragging.

Nothing really new to report except that he is getting stronger everyday, and he likes to show off his strength by contorting my belly into very strange shapes.
Or pushing on my pelvis… that needs to stop.

Next week I have my glucose test.
I'm already pumping myself up for it.
Don't barf. Don't barf.
Perhaps I need to stop eating chocolate covered almonds and coconut now too.
The struggle.

2 | it happened
It really happened.
You may recall me posting last week about this loft bed we were going to make.
And would you take a look at this...
Isn't it beautiful!?
My farmer is talented.

The boys slept in there and shared a room for the first time ever last night.
And they did surprisingly well.
I mean… fell straight to sleep at 7 pm and didn't wake up until 6:30 am. 
That's like a new record around here.
High five!
I on the other hand, didn't sleep well thinking that Brody was going to fall straight outta that bed.

I will do a "how to" post in the upcoming future for how we built this bed, as well as a whole room reveal once I get all of the details finalized.

3 | progress
The big boy room now has both boys' clothes in the closet, as well as all of the big boy toys.

I have been on an early nesting spree lately and donated SO many toys while the boys spent the day with grandma yesterday.

I also threw out all of our DVD cases and put just the discs in a cd book.
WHY have I not done this sooner?
Such a space saver!

With Beckam out of the nursery now, progress is about to go down in there too.
With three months until baby comes, I have a feeling that we will be very ready for his arrival.

4 | z & co.
One of the things I love the most about blogging is the people and companies that I have met and become friends with.
Recently I got the most darling package in the mail from z & co. with the best smelling candle and room spray.
AND would you look at what else they included!?...
A little something special for this little guy in my belly.
So sweet.
Love this blogging community! :)
