36 Weeks! Baby will be here soon! :)

My daughter woke me up today shouting "I'm excited for MARCH."  We are all excited that March has arrived because we know our little baby boy will be entering the world any day now!  WE ALSO HAVE PICKED A NAME!  :)  Keeping it a secret right now!

I had my 36 week appointment yesterday.  My measurements and weight all look great!  I am measuring right  at 36 weeks, I have gained 21 pounds, and baby's heart beat was 142!   :)  YIPPEE!  I also had the Group B Strep test done and will find those results out next week.

My Braxton Hicks have turned into high gear and can come when I am sitting, walking, standing and at any time of day.  They seem to be more intense but nothing that is time able yet! I did download an app on my phone... a stopwatch!  :)  Getting ready!  :)

Still blessed that my feet look normal and not taking on water!  :)  I did finally get a couple small stretch marks under my belly but trying not to focus on them... i will admit that I cried when i saw them!  Then my hubby talked to me and made me realize that was a silly emotion and he made sure he told me he will love me no matter what!  He is a good husband!

I have a busy week ahead and my doctor is out of town this weekend so I am thinking that NEXT week would be a perfect week have this baby!  :)

So here is my huge belly!  This pic was in the morning so my face looks so sleepy!

If you have not guessed on when baby will arrive, weight, and height you still have some time:

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
