35.5 weeks

it's gettin real over here. the belly is taking over.
i've got to say though, i feel really great over all
AND with the cooler weather blowing in i'm feeling newly energized and motivated.
random thoughts and happenings-
i've been obsessed with learning how to make my own loaf of crusty bread. probably has something to do with the fall.
our cold weather veggies are going in the ground this weekend.
we're slowly gathering up our homebirth supplies. i made a trip to the incontinent aisle this week to stock up on some very un-glamorous items :)
and today we have our home visit with the midwives to map out everything for the birth!!


  1. Yay Noelle! Can't wait to see little Hazel's precious face! You look soo good! How cute to see your toes peeking out under your belly over that Azeri rug. I'm so excited for you and Ryan!
