Do I Have To...?

We are 28 weeks in, folks.

That's pretty darn close to 30.

And that means after my next appointment, 
I start going to the doctor every two weeks instead of four.

That makes things seem a little more real... 
and it will just keep on getting more real the closer my due date gets!

I'm due January 4th... 
but Eloise came early and the doctor said that most women seem to
 go into labor around the same time as they did in their previous pregnancies... 
which... would put me having a baby right around Christmas.

I'm not ready for Christmas.

Not in the least.

I have ONE present bought (lucky you, Maddy!)...
and well, I am certainly not ready to have a baby around all of the Holiday Festivities!

But, alas...
It's not up to me!
So I'll take it as it comes.

Ok, and maybe (secretly... shhh!) I am hoping to have a New Years Baby 
so that I can get all of that fancy stuff the hospital gives to the first born of the new year!

I'm a weirdo, I know!
But it'd be like hitting the jackpot!
How fun!

But really, this rambling is not the reason for my post.

I really am posting to complain that I finally am going to 
have to break down and give in to the dreaded...

Rocker Glider.

I know, it probably seems silly of me...
but I just really am not one for a rocker glider.

Not that I have "style" - trust me.
But they aren't really... well... my style!

But with that growing belly up there in that first picture...
I just can't keep on with our nightly routine with this growing girl:

And, I certainly don't want to give THAT up!
(Holding her and saying prayers, singing songs, etc)

So if we have to switch it up...
so be it.

And since we have a small house with barely room for anything else...
I can't get the nice big rocking chair that I'd like.

So, it looks like it's going to have to be a rocker glider.

I suppose I'll survive.  
And I know I shouldn't complain.
But I probably will anyway...
(at least in my own mind).

Anyone have any recommendations on a rocker glider?


  1. I'm not a fan of the rocker gliders either! But I guess it serves a nice function. :) Since you're crafty, you could always cover one with cuter fabric! :)

  2. I have had mine for a few years now and just love it. Make sure you get a good quality one, the cheaper ones aren't comfortable or durable. It will grow on you; and as Christina suggested, you can always cover it with a favorite pattern.


  3. Hey, don't knock the glider :) haha. We have one in Greyson's room and there was a night or two when he was really sick that was the only way he would fall asleep (and stay asleep). We like it, but I have no idea what brand it is. I have had it for years now, but I know it wasn't expensive.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
