Pregnancy Files: {My Patriotic Bump Week 24}


Best moment this week: Getting my Snoogle in the mail. I literally met the UPS man at the door. That is how excited I was to get this pregnancy pillow and let me tell you it has changed my life already. I sleep so much better with this thing and I don't know why I waited so long to get one. 

Food cravings: Always Chipotle, but besides that nothing new.

Movement: That feeling of Aiden kicking me will never, ever, ever get old! 

Symptoms: A little indigestion and heartburn after I eat spicy things, constant bathroom trips and still some trouble sleeping, but other than that I feel great!

Nursery: Drew and I headed to the outlets about an hour North of us to scour Pottery Barn for a rug. This has been the hardest thing for me to find so far because I did not want to spend 500 dollars.on.a.piece.of.carpet. No thank you. We have hardwood floors so I knew I wanted a nice big rug for Aiden to be able to crawl around on in his room. I wanted it to be soft, but to also be quality. We hit the jackpot at the outlet and got an awesome rug on sale for the 4th of July holiday. I also found a Pottery Barn gift card from our wedding (oh ya know only 5 years ago) so we used that too making the rug super affordable. I can't wait to see it in the nursery!! 

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
I'm so thankful you will be born in a country with so many freedoms. Your great grandpa's all fought in the war to help give us the freedoms we enjoy today. Next 4th of July you will be here celebrating the USA with us! Yay!
Love,
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
Thank you for our country and the freedoms we are able to enjoy. Thank you for all the men and women who sacrificed so much to make it this way for the rest of us. Help Aiden to grow to be strong and brave and to honor you in all he does.
Amen.

2 Corinthians 3:17
"And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."

Yay for finding the perfect carpet! We're looking for one for the studio after we get it finished. They ARE expensive! I'm glad you found such a great deal! :)

so cute!

I had a pregnancy pillow, and I hated it! I must be the only one, I know, but I always got stuck in it, and it took up 3/4 of the bed! hope yours is better than that!
