While Waiting III

Again, chronicling another weekend of waiting on baby. In case you missed the first installments, here are Week I and Week II.

If it's winter time and you are waiting on baby, you will take advantage of a sunny, warmer day and build a snow fort.

If little girls only take a short morning nap, you'll decide to do a trial photography session to see how well she handles it. And then you'll find that the feather boa is cute, but since she is very ticklish she only tolerates it for about two seconds before whipping it off.

If the troops get restless, you'll find that a walk in the crisp winter air takes their mind off their crabbiness and gets in some quick exercise for mama too.

If all else fails, you'll find that a new addiction to a little thing called Pinterest can waste away oodles of time. And, get you inspired to take your nesting to a whole new level in the craftiness department.

If you get hungry for something sweet, maybe baby will decided to arrive when he/she smells some yummy cupcakes fresh out of the oven.

Frost them with some homemade cocoa buttercream frosting and at least you'll be satisfied, despite baby not arriving all weekend long. Again.

In the end, we keep plenty busy because baby is worth the wait. Some of us get a little tired though and decide that we might as well take a snooze in the mean time.

Sorry to bore you with the details of our waiting period, but I figure I might as well post something because I don't want my readers to get antsy.

How was your weekend? How's every little thing in your corner of the neighborhood?


  1. I still have 3-4 weeks to go and I'm doing all the same stuff you're doing. Of course there is school, but the extra baking and outdoor excursions fill in the extra time. We ran errands last Thursday for 8 hours...I was pooped by the time we finally made it home!

    It won't be long now. Praying that all goes smoothly and looking forward to your good news!

  2. Keep up the walking and eating...both could help induce labor :) I am SO EXCITED over here!

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend! Cozy and moments to cherish. Soon, baby, soon! We'll be praying for you!

  4. With a sleeping one on my chest, I now have the chance to "try" and catch up on some blogs. Loved this because you are making this fun while waiting for baby Gem's arrival. I am so excited for you all.

  5. Such a cute post, Sarah.

    Waiting along with ya, but its so much easier for me (I tend to easily get distracted!)!! :-)


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
