Labor Day

... I wish it were actual *labor day* for me!! :)

I went to the doctor on Friday, however, and did get some good news in that regard:

I am already 1 cm dilated & 60% effaced. Woo to the hoo! He said she will be here definitely sometime in the next 3 weeks. I will either go all the way into labor on my own or they'll make sure I start heading in that direction. It's so nice to have a time frame!

I'm pretty pumped that we'll have another September baby on our hands, too (we have several September b'days in our fam, including mine!).

I've started feeling the pressure (hehe, literally!) of trying to get everything ready for her arrival: washing little baby clothes, getting out the Moses basket, needing to pack our hospital bags, etc. So exciting!

Along those same themes, I figured I'd go ahead and share the name we've chosen for our sweet girl, along with an album I made for her. (I made this from a class that Gretchen taught a few weeks back at Sweet Memories' Birthday Bash- SO fun!)

Hope you're having a great, relaxing day!


  1. You've chosen a beautiful name! And of course I love the album for her. =)

  2. What a sweet little album for your baby girl!

  3. Love Ariana!
    I was about to ask the middle name, but I just remembered.
    You're so organized!

  4. Beautiful album and beautiful name. We have friends who's DD is named Ariana too. I'll be keeping you in my prayers as you gear up for number 4!

  5. Yay! So exciting to hear she will be here soon!

    I love the name! That little album is beautiful V!

  6. Can't believe you're coming to the end of your pregnancy already!! although I know it probably didn't seem quick to you!! Love what you did with the album :) And I love your new daughter's name!!

  7. What a sweet name! Good luck with everything! Thanks for visiting my blog today..yes, I hand stitched the lines on the A+ card and just poked holes with my needle really quick..thanks for saying they looked good, cuz I went really fast trying to finish it! Time consuming..but worth it. ha

  8. Beautiful name V!!! Hope these next few weeks go by quickly for you!!(or not quickly if you aren't ready--LOL)The album is beautiful too!!! I just love looking at your work! ;)


I'm so glad you decided to leave me a comment today! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world. :)
