TTUT-Out Like a Lamb

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. -English Proverb

with Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn

  • Wow, are we really in the 3rd week of March already? Did anyone else feel like this month just fly right by?Β 
  • The weather has been beautiful and sunny here. There was no real “Lion” weather to speak of in early March, it’s pretty much been Lambtastic around here. I have to say I love these days, where it’s nice enough to open all the windows and get the fresh air, but not so hot that I have to run around closing everything up and hiding from the sun. That’ll be May-September weather. So I’ll enjoy the fresh air and mild temps while we have them.
  • Sunday I taught my second to last Sunday school class for the foreseeable future. Just one more to go-if I don’t back out next month. I’m starting to get the 3rd trimester fatigue, and those kids wore me OUT! Having to bend down and help them glue their crafts, and searching under the table for lost pieces of paper was not easy. But I love their enthusiasm, and their funny stories.
  • My favorite? One little boy telling this big story about the leprechaun that helped him find his lost ring. He had me help write him a thank you card. I must confess I had to google how to spell leprechaun while I was writing it for him. Thank goodness for smartphones or else this “teacher” would have felt like a real fool.
  • I’ve been a busy bee working on getting the house ready for my shower, which is in T-minus 18 days! I have an awesome DIY project I’ve been making for Piglet’s room, that will double as decorations for the shower. I’ll hopefully have them done by next week and will share them with you.
  • I also managed to get my picture gallery up for the dining room. Some of the pictures are place holders, and will probably be rotated out for pictures of Piglet when he arrives. For now my first “baby” has a special spot on the wall. Yes I know it’s ridiculous that I have an 8×10 of my dog on my wall, but whatevs. Also please forgive the way the camera makes the canvas picture look. It was evening and the flash was bouncing off of it. picture gallery wall picture gallery for dining room: picture gallery wall

  • I love the way the picture gallery and the triptych break up the space. The room is really coming together!
  • Match has been working a lot of overtime, and I miss him! But the time away makes us appreciate each other more, and he’s always so excited to see me, and rub the belly when he gets home.
  • We had another awesome checkup yesterday, with our “little” guy weighing in at a whopping 3 pounds, 1 ounce at 29 weeks. He’s in the 55th percentile and doing great! Match and I are both nervous that he’s going to be a big baby at birth. So long as he’s healthy, that’s all that matters. But if he wants to be born at say, 7 pounds instead of 9, with a nice small head, mama would be ok with that. πŸ˜‰

    The head squooshes – it’s the big shoulders that getcha. A big baby is soo nice. You feed them & they can hold a lot more milk – so, they’re happier longer. And, so are you. Lol.


    I love your dining room!
    Our ultrasounds made it seem like Brian was going to weigh 8 or 9 pounds and our midwife was worried about his shoulders, but he came out at 7#10oz!


    your picture wall looks great!!

    29 weeks already? wowza!!! and like you said. hard to believe that march will be over before we know it. crazy!!

    i hope you’re feeling well πŸ™‚

    love jenny xoxo

    we are having the worst March in Minnesota…! Last year it didn’t snow at all and was above 60 almost every day. This year it’s crap, we had a blizzard yesterday and it’s freezing cold πŸ™

    I love the photos, they look great! I want to do something like that!

    Wow, 3lbs, I bet you can really feel him moving around now!



    I totally agree with you about the month. Where did it go! And I love your photo gallery. I sooooo want one of those but our house doesn’t really allow for things like that.


    Looks like someone is nesting!

    No way – the puppy picture should stay!! It’s a great shot, and dogs are part of the family, too! ;o)

    Great job getting everything lined up together, too. I HATE doing that!


    I love how the wall came out! And I love that you have a picture of Monkey on the wall. I love my dog and while I don’t have any children yet, she takes that place in our family πŸ™‚ So, I get it!


    Your gallery wall looks GREAT! I don’t think it’s silly to have an 8×10 of Monkey on the wall at all! It turned out so great!!!


    Your picture gallery looks great and I love the story about having to look up a spelling on your smartphone.

    Love that you had to spell check, I can never spell restaurant.
    Before the epidural, contractions were awful, after I didn’t feel the head or shoulders, highly recommend!


    Love your picture gallery it looks great! And I totally had to look back up to your post as to how to spell leprechaun — so you aren’t the only one πŸ™‚

    And don’t worry– most of the time they seem to scare you about how big the baby is, but more often than not the baby ends up being smaller than what they say even at the end πŸ™‚

    Your house is looking sooooo cute! I love the collage! And I LOVE the pic of that sweet dog!
    i totally look up words on google all the time. You will soon come to realize that pregnant brain is kinda permanent. It sucks balls.
    Can’t wait to see pics of your shower! You soooo deserve a big, elaborate shower!!!!! =)


    It looks great!


    I love your picture wall! And personally I see nothing wrong with having a giant photo of your dog. I would totes do the same πŸ™‚

    I am so excited for you and glad that baby is almost here!!!

Your comments make my day!
