Baby Watch & Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Friday, friends!!  We are still very much on baby watch over here, today marks exactly two days until my due date!  I'm thinking I will be back for a 40 week update on Monday, girlfriend seems pretty content in my belly at the moment, & as much as I am literally dying to meet her, I know she will come when she is ready.  We did have an eventful appointment this week, it started with a routine non-stress test and ended with a second trip to labor & delivery.  My doctor saw a slight decrease in heart rate, so she sent me to the hospital for a second opinion & told us if it wasn't perfect, we would be staying for an induction.  I of course freaked out the entire drive there.  Thankfully, the test was much better the second time around, & they sent us home to continue waiting!  After two trips there in the last two weeks, I am not sure how I will react when we actually get to stay for the real thing! :)  As for now, the plan is to continue waiting & refuse an induction, as long as there are no medical reasons to do it & baby girl keeps doing well in there!

As anxious as we are, the days have been flying by.  We are keeping busy & I am really loving these last days with just Waverly, I know I will look back on them with the best memories one day.  We didn't really make too many plans for Memorial Day weekend, since we didn't know if we would end up in the hospital or not, but ended up fitting so much in & had the best time, the perfect way to spend our last days before baby girl gets here!

I took Waverly on a mommy & daughter date to the zoo, she loves it there so much so I definitely wanted to do it while we still could.  It was way hotter than we thought it would be & I was a little exhausted the entire time, but it was overall a win, she was so excited & the absolute cutest looking at all the animals.


We also made a family trip to the strawberry festival near us, we try to go every year & this time we took Waverly to the parade!  As outgoing as she is, she sometimes gets nervous in big crowds or around new people (which always makes us laugh, she is so not shy at all), but the parade pretty much freaked her out.  We did ride a few rides but left pretty quickly, & I am sure we sat in the traffic to get there longer than we actually stayed. ;)

And lastly, always the highlight of our weekends, we spent two days at the water park & went out on a friends boat.  Waverly is obsessed with anything that involves water, it's no doubt that summer is her favorite season or that she would spend all day, every day doing some sort of water activity if we let her!

Wishing you all the happiest weekend!

  5. Adorable photos! This may sound like a funny question but I would love to know what sunscreen you use on Waverly. I notice that you guys enjoy the outdoors a lot and my daughter is fair so I was wondering which sunscreen you use and trust on Waverly.
