Prairie-lands, plaits and very late babies! #littleloves week 24


But enough of that... this time next week, if our littlest has not decided to make its own way into the world, the Doctors will be going in to get him/her out!!

Anyway... lets follow this advice...

Here's what we've been up to this week...

Little House on the Prairie with my big girl... and she is LOVING it. To the extent that the majority of the girls make believe world currently centres around a cabin in Wisconsin and a lot of cleaning, animal feeding and bonnet wearing. More on that here...

Dave and I have been watching an episode of "Indian Summers" on catch up pretty much every night in an attempt to get through it before a newborn creates havoc with our quiet evenings!! We only have one more episode to go, and I'm on tenderhooks to see what happens... eeek!

Not loads, but I had some quiet time on Wednesday lunchtime just to sit and read my Bible and pray and was loving a bit of Fernando Ortega... seriously, I just love all his music... it speaks truth to my heart and relaxes my soul!

More crazy hair styles this week...

And a little blue nail polish... I did my nails on my due date last week, and they were so scrappy, I felt due date + one week also required a little nail love...

A list of my Newborn favourites... you can check it out here!! 

And lastly:
In all seriousness, having an "extra week" before the chaos ensues has been a blessing. I was able to say goodbye to some wonderful friends who have moved stateside this week (two families who are very dear to us), and also just to cherish some time with this little fam of mine before we grow. The girls are at such a lovely stage, and its nice to just breath it all in and appreciate them where they're at right now.

A few pics from this week...

So, hopefully I'll be back next week with a little announcement!!

Mwah! Happy weekend!
