Wedding favors and ME

Wedding season is around the corner.  We'll be attending 4 weddings this year.  That is definitely a record for us.  Couldn't be more excited for everyone.  This is also a busy time of the year for me because brides are starting to get all their favors ordered for receptions and bridal showers.  My custom stamped linen drawstring pouches are a popular seller.  They're fully customizable and just so sweet and fun!

I can't believe it took me this long to post, but here's a few photos of me at 39 weeks pregnant.  If I remember correctly, this was one of our last outings before having the baby.  It's hard to believe I was that big!

Here I am at the hospital getting ready to be induced and eventually end up having a cesarean.  My doctor said I was all baby.  I felt so big, but I was so insanely excited for little Gavin to arrive.  I feel like tearing up just thinking about it. 

The hospital was amazing.  The rooms were perfect.  The staff was awesome.  Thank you Legacy!!

very happy mama to be

Here's daddy with Gavin at 1 day old.

poor bubba scratched his face

Here we are on New Year's Eve.  First New Years in a while that we didn't go out.  I think we had about 10 seconds of sleep that week.  I was very happy to stay home with my family. 

no sleep, no make up, possibly no shower, and still in my robe but happy as can be

Here's my love at 6 weeks.  He says "don't touch my toys!"

And here's me almost 7 weeks post pregnancy.  Laundry, baby toys and junk in the background due to lack of space and time.  No make up just out of the shower due to lack of time.  What a mess!  But I love my baybeh!  And I love the fact that I'm only 2 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight.  Yahoo!

    i am giving you the Stylish Blogger Award (http://theshopbug.blogspot.com/2011/02/i-got-stylish-blogger-award.html)

    warm wishes and love,

  6. That PhD candidate has good taste--and Sarah B is right. But what's hard for me to believe is that you were so petite while being 39 weeks with such a full belly. That's kind of amazing.

    Gavin is so handsome, he's a little heartbreaker--but I know he'd never do that on purpose. I loved having babies in the house--those little sleepers with the cuffs that fold over the hands were so cute. *sigh* =)

  7. Gavin is unbelievably adorable!

    You look fantastic, Amy. Motherhood definitely suits you :)
