37 weeks and a car seat cover

We had some sunshine today and I washed the padding and whole frame of the car seat, so now it's all ready to go! This car seat cover made up so quickly. I love a fast project! I made it last week during Ali's nap.

I just did bows on the top this time. I had the ribbon on hand and it was the quickest way to finish! I realize they are a bit girly, but I was too lazy to go out and buy velcro and cut fabric to connect it that way.
Here is the opposite side of the cover. It's a bit hard to tell, but it's a brown background with little blue, orange and green circles. The fabric is Riley Blake All Star. A big thanks to my sister Natalie for buying it 2 1/2 years ago when she was sure she would have another boy and didn't!! This fabric has been in my mom's stash since then and I was very happy to use it! Thanks Nat!

The belly at 37 weeks. Please ignore my tight workout clothes! Only 3 more weeks to go! Or hopefully a bit less :) I have to say, I'm rooting for May 12th. Interesting, I know. But my girl's birthdays are so easy to remember, and his would be too if it followed the same pattern. Molly's is 10-7-07, Ali's is 1-10-10. So if baby boy could be 5-12-12, don't you think that would be helpful on my brain?! That day is also the day after Justin's graduation. As long as he comes after graduation, he can come any time really. As long as he comes straight home with me from the hospital!!

I'm feeling really well. Just tired, which is to be expected. I go in tomorrow, but so far, nothing is going on and I haven't felt any contractions. I find out my strep b results, which I hope are negative. With Ali I hadn't been tested and they had to give me penicillin every 4 hours during labor. For whatever reason, it felt like as it went through the IV, my arm was on fire every time! It was totally awful. I'm sure they've fixed that glitch by now, but I'd just prefer not to have it of course! Justin is still not letting go of the name Jackson. I am waiting to see him and go from there. I've started to pack my hospital bag (my sister packed it for me last time with Alison, thanks Em!) and make sure everything is all clean and ready.

The girls are doing well and seem excited about "baby brother". Molly has a dance recital on my due date, so I'm not sure if I will be able to go. Her last day of school is May 18th. She has had her fair share of sweet and sassy days/moments lately. She is excited about wearing new spring clothes and the girls love to ride backs out on the back patio. Ali is copying everything Molly says these days. Sometimes it's cute, and sometimes not! Yesterday Molly was teasing and saying, "you're funny looking". So of course Ali walks into Molly's preschool and starts telling a little girl that. Nice! I had to explain that she doesn't know what it means and I'm sorry! Ali wants to wear "a pretty dress" all the time. Molly went through this stage, but it was when she was 3. We have a few dresses and a skirt or two, but I may need to buy more! Molly wants to play with her little neighbor friend every day. She pretty much asks me every day. The girls also love to play on Justin's phone and iPad. They like the cake game, a fairy game, and an animal sounds game mainly. Justin's LAST final is tomorrow! It seems so weird. Graduation is next Friday. He will be working part time and studying for the bar after tomorrow's final.
