Friday Favorites + Baby Update

Happy Friday! Oooooo do I have some good stuff for you today. Eeek!

one || Mallory and her "shoe phase."First it was her snow boots, but since it's spring she has decided those are soooo last season and she's on to bigger and better things with her rain boots. She will bring them to us at random to be worn around the house. She loves the extra stomping power. Too funny! (Clothing not required to rock rain boots.) 

two || My new make up brushes. After two separate trips, I was able to finally get my hands on these babies! I've only used them a couple of times so far, but I'm really enjoying them! The price simply can't be beat--plus, how pretty are they?!

three || This blush. Over the past couple weeks I've gotten not only this Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink, but also the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush. Being totally honest, the Milani Baked Blush is ten times better! I love the color pay off and the staying power, not to mention the price point is perfection! Highly recommend Milani Baked blushes.

four || Kyle's work schedule. So I can safely say that it is a small miracle that Kyle's work has been so flexible this past month. He has been totally accessible to our family during my time on bed rest and for that I'm so so grateful! Suffice it to say that the Army rarely, if ever, cares about whether your soldier is needed at home...we've been lucky for sure. 
five || Baby Woody will be here in about a week! Ahhh! After beginning to have "real" contractions this week and having remained pregnant long enough to require my group B strep test to be repeated, my OB decided to sneak a peak to see if I had made any progress. Turns out I'm walking waddling around at a solid 4ish cm!! That of course means Baby Woody could arrive at any given moment! We would be so excited to go into labor naturally, even at this stage in the game, because it would mean baby is ready and my body is ready. A natural start to labor could even mean avoiding the nasty drug magnesium! Major, MAJOR bonus. My doctor did suggest scheduling induction for 37 weeks if baby hasn't arrived at that point. I will be 37 weeks 9 days from today! There are several advantages associated with Baby Woody making it to 37 weeks, namely giving his brain more time to develop. We would love to avoid repeating the breastfeeding issues we experienced with Mallory who was born at 36 weeks and 4 days. Of course, in the end, we just want baby and mama to be safe...that's why we pay the doctors the big bucks. ;)

I think that's all I had to share with you today...
