A Beautiful Distraction

Things have been going good the last couple week of my pregnancy but I really thought our little girl would have arrived by now. I have been dilated, effaced and baby has been engaged for weeks so I have had good reason to hope but no such luck! My house has been ready for weeks and I am now off work per Dr's orders so I feel as though I don't have anything else to think about but will today be the day? Did my water just break or did I just pee a little? I know the last one is a bit of a TMI but we've all thought, I just might be the first to say it. I have had false labor 3 times and as of my last appointment I hadn't made any progress so I was very frustrated! All of this anxiety has made me feel a little crazy lately, and I have been in need of some serious mental distractions. Yesterday I couldn't think of anything better then having my very busy 3 year old nephew come over and help me make sugar cookies. We had so much fun! As you can see, he liked using the sprinkles the best!
As Jared was decorating he says "I make cookies wif spinkles and MORE spinkles on dem, Ok?" The cookies turned out delicious, and were obviously COVERED in "spinkles"

So not only was sweet little Jared a beautiful distraction but we then had some excellent cookies to eat afterwards! Thanks Pea for coming over and making cookies with me yesterday afternoon! I love you!

I know that she'll come when she's ready I just need to learn a little patience. So until then I'll keep looking for beautiful distractions to keep my mind occupied. Hopefully my next post will include pictures of a very cute baby girl!
