Jacob was out of town for a bit this week. He left on Monday and came back last night, so you know what that means. Crafts. I finally finished the pillow I made to go with the glider.
Most of you have already seen these, but a couple of weeks ago, we had a friend take some maternity pictures for us. I have to say, I'm so glad she did it and I LOVE how they turned out. I'm definitely going to frame one of Jacob and I for the baby's room. This one is probably my favorite:
blog. Thanks again, Tanya!
Last weekend was my baby shower!!! Hannah and her mom did an AWESOME job with it, and everything was amazing. We got so much good stuff for the baby, and I am already feeling very overwhelmed by the number of thank you notes I need to write. I've been writing a few each day, but it just takes me forever! I spend like 20 minutes on one and then I want to quit. I'm thinking I might just fill the next several in with a smiling stick figure that's saying "Me likey present" and be done with it. That's sincere enough, right? But really, everything was amazing and I'm so grateful to everyone that came and especially to Hannah and her mom for putting on such a great shower.
So I gave up on my ridiculously long hair. It was just getting to be too annoying. Plus it was breaking all of my hair things because it was getting heavy, so I chopped it off yesterday. I'm gonna be honest, I knew ahead of time that I'd hate whatever the lady did. And I was right. I went in with this picture, hoping to get longish layers that would be easy to work with.
On the plus side, Jacob's always saying he wants me to cut my hair short, so WISH GRANTED. For real, though, I'm back to looking like Jodie Foster in Freaky Friday, which isn't good for anybody.
