Simple Saturday

Well here we are 39weeks, 2 days pregnant...Yep. Still pregnant.

Fortunately, I'm not miserable.  Somewhere in the late 2nd and early 3rd trimester, I was pretty miserable physically.   Baby girl has been mostly kind these last few weeks, thank God.   I've had a handful {like 4 over 5 days} of contractions and nothing else really going on.  Each day I wake up and know this could be the last day home with just 2.

This morning I woke up at 6:00am due to the bear my husband's snoring next to me. I tried to go back to sleep, but after having him roll over and still snoring for 15 minutes, I was up.  Off to the couch I went, but there was no going back to sleep.  Lily was up around 7:00am and thus the day had begun. 

She decided she was hungry pretty early and asked for pancakes.  So pancakes it was going to be. I don't make box mix pancakes.  Never have. It's easy enough to make them from scratch and she was excited to help!

You know when you tell your kids, "This isn't a restaurant. You get what I fix." ?  Apparently, this IS, in fact, a restaurant when making pancakes.  Lily likes sprinkles in hers, Andrew likes chocolate chips, and George and I like blueberries.  I did make a few extras to freeze for Lily  since she's the only one who eats breakfast with me at home during the week.


 Breakfast was yummy and Lily was happy.  Made for a good morning with my girl. ♥

While Lily watched a little bit of tv, I worked on a print for the baby in her room and a little banner to hang on the bassinet at the hospital. Mind you, the guys were still asleep all this time. Must. be. nice.
I can't find my 2 inch circle punch to finish the banner, so that's driving me crazy. I used it for Lily's birthday party and I have no idea what I did with it.  Hopefully I'll be able to find it.  Ugh!
The kids and I are going for ice cream this evening since we have a rare evening home with nothing to do. Lily keeps asking Andrew and I  what kind we're going to get and making sure we're getting her daddy some too.  :)  I love that she's sweet and considerate.  I'm getting Snappy Turtle, by the way.
Saturdays will soon be filled with the early days of a newborn baby, so today I'm enjoying the peacefulness with my first two babies doing simple things that are happy things.  


  1. We love pancake Saturdays! She is looking so stinking cute and grown up these days! Who allowed this getting bigger thing?!

  2. I'm pretty sure I've said this once, twice, a few dozen times - every time I read you, all I can think about is the kind of mother you are. If I am HALF the mom you are, my kids would be lucky. At 39 weeks pregnant, you amaze me. Woman, friend for life, I miss you and reading this makes me a very happy girl.
    Wishing you all the luck in the world for a safe and healthy delivery of baby #3! Cannot wait :) xoxo

  3. When I come over for breakfast I will take choco chips in mine please!! What is Violet's deal?! We both thought she would be here by now. Stubborn already?!?!
