In the meantime, I'm finishing up a few craft projects for Aubrey's little nest. I want to show you a few of the things I've been up to. I apologize in advance for the quality of these photos. I was quickly snapping shots to upload to Facebook and wasn't caring too much about photo quality.
Embellished Burp Cloths
I pinned and sewed the ribbons onto these cloth diapers from Walmart. I'm so excited to use them!
I'm so into giraffe print lately.
A rice bag was recommended to us at our labor and delivery class. So I made one! Perhaps you've seen these things before but if not, here is the deal. You stick this bag in the microwave for a few minutes (three) and it heats right up. You then place it on sore and achey muscles. I've also learned that you can put it in the freezer for an hour and then you have a nice cold pack. The heat feels wonderful! I wish I had a whole suit made of heated rice!
If you're interested in making one yourself, you must use 100% cotton fabric and 100% cotton thread. Anything else will melt in the microwave. I plan to make one for my dad and brother-n-law for Christmas so perhaps I'll do an indepth tutorial of how I created this thing.
Vera Bradley fabric!! It was only $5 a meter too!
And finally, here is a photo of me at 39 weeks. I don't look much different today just a week later. Definatly ready to have this little girl though! Thanks to everyone who has been passing along good wishes and prayers for Aubrey. I can't wait to finally introduce you to her....when she comes! :)
