38 weeks 3 Days

While I have been posting pictures occasionally of how big this baby belly has gotten, I have definitely not been very good about updating on the ol' blog. As you can see by the title of this post, I'm extremely close and boy am I feeling ready. I took this sometime last week.
I definitely am at that point of feeling like I couldn't possibly get any bigger... though I'm sure if he decides to wait the full 40 that I will be proven wrong.

We live in a small 2 bedroom house so wee Gareth will be in our room for at least a couple of years.  It has been a bit of a task to figure out how our room will work for everything but I think I finally have things arranged well. Adele helped me decorate the baby wall the other day. I have pinterest to thank for the simple idea of putting cute fabrics into embroidery hoops. I splurged on a couple of the prints but still only spent about 25 bucks as I already had some hoops lying around and the rest were half off at the thrift store.
A slightly blurry photo but you get the idea.

I was also excited to see lots of hot air balloons the other night. It was kind of a sweet moment, though I'm not sure the hubs thought so. We were all excited to see them up in the sky but I insisted we find a good spot for me to take some pictures. I honestly hadn't seen so many since I was a little kid and it was so nice to share the moment with Adele too.
This was just the ones that were close as we were leaving the grocery store, but Adele counted 87 up there at one point. So funny to me that this nationals competitive event has launch sites mostly in residential areas and we see this gigantic amount of whimsical treasures but the air show in Battle Creek that used to be so great for them I maybe saw 3 balloons up this year and I live just a couple miles from the airport they launch from there!

I've also been busy finishing up a few things like my most recent Spin Along offering. For the first time I decided to combine the Spin Along with a jewelry piece because the artist that inspired this particular one was perfect for it. That artist? Alexander Calder. Here are the pins that will be coming with each SAL.

The Spin Alongs are taking me a tiny bit longer to put together than I anticipated. Mostly because everyone who is participating is someone who I know personally and I decided that just a pin was not enough. They should all be out and on their way tomorrow though (only a week late.) :D I think they will be worth it though.

Much love and hopefully next time I am able to blog it will be with pictures of this little fella's face
