Five on Friday!

Hello lovelies! Happy Friday! I don't know about y'all, but I'm pretty happy to see the weekend and kind of reaaaally hoping this is my last pregnant one. At 38 weeks, 4 days, I sort of feel like a ticking time bomb, and let me tell you, I'm READY.
Annnnyway, I'm linking up with the girls behind  Five on Friday for a little fun today!
 {one} Our town had its annual Christmas Parade earlier in the week, so of course, we had to take Jaqs! It was pretty chilly, but she loved it and we had so much fun :) I love that she's at a fun age for this sort of thing right now...simple pleasures! 
{two} This girl has been giving me a run for my money with napping lately...little stinker! Since dropping the paci, she hasn't napped once at Mother's Day Out, and every time I put her down at home she tells me, "I can't take a nap! It's light outside!" Well, she's right, but she has black-out curtains in her room, so it's definitely dark in there. I'm praying this isn't the beginning of the end because goodness knows I'm going to neeeeed that nap-time with Mister Slade coming any day now! Oh well, we're sticking with it & enjoying the 6:30/7:00 p.m. bedtime on the non-nap days.
{three} I finally hopped on the (faux) fur vest train and picked one up at Target for 40% off on Black Friday. I've worn it once already, and I kind of love it even though I look like an actual animal with this gigantic bump right now ;) I'm loving these looks I found on Pinterest & can't wait to copy them post-baby when my normal clothes fit again.
{four} We normally always do family pictures for Christmas cards sometime around Thanksgiving, but this year we've decided to just do newborns/family pictures and send out a "Happy New Year & Here's Our New Kid!" card so wouldn't have to double up on card costs & postage. Plus, I can't really imagine sending out a Christmas card with our newest member not on it. All that to say, I'm really looking forward to getting some updated family pictures (and hoping that I'm not a swollen blimp ;)). Also hoping that we can get some sweet shots like this one of our babies:

I'm certainly not above bribing my toddler, so I'm sure there will be ample marshmallows and M&Ms on hand to get her to be sweet to her little brother. Ha! Any other tips, mommas??

{five} Rob and I are going to do our best to make this last weekend really special for Jaqs. Her little world is about to be rocked, but I just pray that she'll love Slade and know that mommy and daddy still love her to the moon even if we're not quite as available all the time.
I've heard about pets becoming clingy with baby's due date getting closer, but does that apply to toddlers as well?? Jaqs has been especially lovey-dovey lately & I'm eating it up. It's so hard for me to believe how big she is and what a little girl she has turned in to. Bittersweet watching these babies grow!


That's all I've got for today...hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I Love that faux vest…I may have to copy you!! And this weekend we are trying to make it special for our little guy, as I expect our little bundle will be joining us this week too! Good luck with delivery and all that comes with it!

You are the cutest and funniest little mama in all the land!!! I HIGHLY doubt you look like a wild animal in your fur vest (ps - Target has them??? I might have to see if I can pull that off)!

Thinking of you and hope y'all have a low key wknd ahead! And I think Jaqs and J need to chat and get on the same page that naps and sleeping in your bed (through the night!!) are all AWESOME things!! My word!!!!

Those vests are adorable, I just really don't think I could pull it off. And I never really though of it, but yes, Wyatt got a lot more clingy right before Stella was born. Everything will be great with Slade, she'll adjust really quickly!

That picture is so cute! I'm sure you little lady and new little man will make an even cuter version.

I am hosting a Jameson Monroe giveaway on Our Little Miracles. You should stop by and check it out.
