1 contraction,2 contraction,3 contraction IM DONE!

by

wowzers.

last night was a kicker.

around 1 A.M. I started having fairly uncomfortable contractions.

When I was pregnant with Lennon I would have said I was in labor.

That is until I felt labor.

these wern’t labor…

but they also were not your typical braxton hicks.

I was having contractions every 3-5 minutes from 1 in the morning.

until 5 this evening…

they have not stopped…

but they have spaced out more…

I am getting them every 15-20 minutes.

I have an appointment in the morning…

I am sure that everything is fine…

but pray little Ellington stays cookin a little longer(7 ish weeks!)!

Today was a wonderful day though…

Nolan had a slower day today so we had some good family time.

We went to the mall to buy something off of craigslist for Nolan…

ate some lunch in the food court…

Lennon ate his weight in chinese food.

Totally digging the samples :)

then we headed to target to pick some things ups…

we moved my new Bekaboo sewing station/office into the finished out attic at my parents house where Nolan currently has his set up.

it is wonderful.

Spacious..

and perfect.

Thanks mom and dad!

Well we recently got inspired to re-do the boys room before Ellington arrives…

because of our boys closeness in age we are going to have El in our room for a good few months…4-6 and let little Lennon keep his crib for a while longer…

I feel badly springing a new baby brother and a new bed on him all at once.

Not to mention when I am sleep deprived and up nursing a newborn at all hours of the night…

I don’t want to be worrying about Lennon getting out of his bed and getting hurt etc.

So…probably around Lennon’s 2nd birthday we will move him to his big boy bed.

and Ellington to the crib.

Here is the head board that Nolan is going to make for Lennon’s bed…

we have a black duvet and want to find some type of neat modern yet kiddy sheets to go with it…

we are also going to do one wall (the wall Lennon’s bed is on) in this really neat textured brick wallpaper…

we aren’t totally sold on this EXACT one…

but we do want to do something similar…

The crib is wooden and black and we have plain white ikea sheets on them with some lighter blue and darker blue bedding…

we already have sheer white linen ikea curtains in the boys room…

oh..I do need to get bed rails for Lennon’s big boy bed…

any suggestions?

sorry this is a random rambling post…

tomorrow will be the first day in 2 almost 3 weeks that Lennon and I are going to go out and socialize with people outside my family (who are great BTW)

everyone has had the nasty flu & we are all finally on the mend.

Thank you Lord.

ok…well my lack of sleep last night is hitting me right now.

Must.Go.To.Sleep.

anyone else get sooo excited for their coffee in the morning?

ah.

I am already so excited to wake up early with Nolan and have time together before Lennon gets up…

sipping on a piping hot french press.

mmm.

Gonna go get some shut eye!

Night Night!

    Isn’t it funny you think you’re in labor until you experience labor and braxton hicks are just like whatever! haha Hope you feel better soon, :)
