Taking His Sweet Little Time

Dress: Tea & Tulips | Cardigan Sweater c/o Maple Boutique | Belt: Forever 21 | Tights: TJMaxx | Shoes: Blowfish

As my belly gets bigger and bigger (40 weeks, 3 days today), I can’t help but to live in big comfy sweaters (like the one I’m wearing from Maple Boutique) and tights.  Oh, and sweat pants too.  It’s kind of funny that this past weekend whenever anyone would ask me when my due date was… I’d say I’m past due haha.  I’ve also gotten plenty of comments about how I look like I’m ready to pop, yes, I sure am.  We actually were able to get in A LOT of sleep this Christmas weekend, we finally got a glider for me and baby to use, and I just keep adding more things to that hospital bag (which I’ll probably not end up using half of it).

Hubby and I exchanged gifts on Christmas Eve… we just couldn’t wait until Christmas Day!  He seriously showered me with gifts, as usual.  I got a new pair of earrings, a new point and shoot camera (Canon S95), Lightroom, and pink earbuds!  I’m seriously such a lucky one.  I just can’t wait to see how he will be with our little A, he’s going to be the best Daddy ever.  🙂  We got showered with gifts throughout the past few weeks from hubby’s family in package form (LOVE getting packages at our doorstep) too.  And then on Christmas Day, my parents came into town and they are staying for awhile to help take care of little A once he decides to arrive.  They brought us a ton of gifts from my brother’s family and it was fun to have a gift opening session on Christmas night!  We’re so blessed to have our family here to help us through this exciting and sure to be trying time as new parents!

What was your favorite Christmas gift that you received this year?

    Sandy, I have been thinking of you and wondering if you have had a little christmas baby. Hope it all goes well very soon! My favourite gift this year was a coffe machine and new watch 🙂 I am glad you got spoilt.

    My favorite gift was probably seeing my sister and brothers. My favorite material gift was probably some shoes my brother got me. lol

    You look so gorgeous! I’m glad you had a merry Christmas. Other than spending the day with family, my favorite gift was finding a box full of my grandma’s vintage ornaments – we thought they had accidentally been sold. I’m so glad to have them!

    I hope A arrives soon!

  15. December 26, 2011 / 10:21 pm

    You look gorgeous, Sandy! Hope you’re still (semi) comfortable too 🙂

    My favorite gift was a gorgeous Kate Spade wallet my hubby surprised me with. He noticed my current wallet was falling apart, and ordered it all on his own – I was seriously impressed!

  16. December 26, 2011 / 11:20 pm

  17. December 26, 2011 / 11:35 pm

    There’s a special place in my heart for baby bump pics – you look beautiful! Hope you are staying comfy and wishing you a smooth and healthy delivery!

    Baby A will be in your arms so soon!

    We’re not doing gifts this year, but my hubs promised me a really goood birthday gift, lol (my birthday is in january :)).

    Ohhh dear… I totally, totally understand how you’re feeling right now. I went up to 41w+4d until my baby was born and the 40th and 41th week were the toughest because lots of people keep asking (“Still no baby yet?”) and my Dr’s pressure for induction didn’t help either. Thank God, everything worked for the best and I finally went to labor spontaneously (meaning, baby FINALLY decided to come out, lol) on 41w+2d (my labor was 2 days, lol). if you ever get the pressure, just stay calm and remember it’s all about you & baby. No worries about what other people say 🙂

    You look just glowing and AMAZING in your 40th week! 🙂 In my 40th week photos, I looked like a whale and barely had the desire to dress up or put on my make up, lol.

  20. December 27, 2011 / 3:16 pm

    lady you just keep getting more beautiful as your little man gets bigger! i understand about them taking their time 🙂 he must be super comfortable!!! can’t wait to see pictures!

  21. December 27, 2011 / 5:00 pm

    Wow, you’re almost there!!! 🙂

  22. December 27, 2011 / 11:34 pm

    Sounds like a great Christmas, and now you’re just waiting on that last Christmas gift, your little A! I got a new Coffee Maker this year, and I love it 🙂

  23. December 28, 2011 / 12:32 am

    You look beautiful!! Oh the excitement! 🙂

  24. December 28, 2011 / 5:55 pm

    Hey you! Just checking in to see the baby. Hope you had a nice Christmas.

  25. December 28, 2011 / 6:55 pm

  26. December 28, 2011 / 11:22 pm

  27. December 29, 2011 / 3:00 pm
