I'm a girly girl. I like spa days and makeovers and lip gloss. But I've had way less time for these things since Grant came along two years ago and I think my time for pampering decreases proportionately with each new kid I have. I'm due in three weeks and my other two have both been early, so I decided it was time to do some pampering so I'd be ready to welcome Baby Eden.
Thursday, I got a manicure and pedicure. I picked a color for my toes that I wouldn't mind staring at in the stirrups for a couple of hours. See? Even when I'm being self-indulgent, I'm practical.
I got my hair darkened because (1) I don't have to worry about roots growing out and (2) it looks better on me.
So, James was two weeks early. Grant was five weeks early. Tomorrow I'll be at 37 weeks and this how big Eden is:
Anyone think I'm making it to 40? Let's have a contest: Whoever picks the right date wins a prize. I don't know what yet, but probably a book. All right, here are the rules: Anyone who puts their guess in today or tomorrow is eligible. Closest to the right day wins. My actual due date is March 23. Kenny says she's coming Thursday. Happy guessing!
Anyway, besides being as cute as I can so I can meet my daughter (and also because I won't have time to do any of this again for another six months), my mother-in-law and aunts threw me a Super Rad baby shower yesterday and this little girl is ready to go.
Seriously, they made a bear cake:
I can't believe I don't have more pictures of the incredibly cute decor and food my family made. So cute!
And a cool hair ribbon holder that matches Eden's cute bedding:
And lots and lots of cute clothes. My husband is a little worried it's too much but he sort of forgot that you have to change the baby's clothes three times a day (at least) due to copious vomiting. Then he looked at everything and said, "Oh, yeah. That should be about right."
Come on, Baby Eden. It's play time!!!
