Keeping Busy to Pass the Time

So this entire pregnancy has flown by.  I can't believe I am already in the home stretch.  However these last 2-3 weeks have been dragging.  I'm ready to meet our little one already.  So to help, I've been busy.

Annie, one of my great friends here in Kansas City, made these super cute onesies for the baby shower.  She had them hanging up for decoration.  She just used iron on material with fabric.  She wasn't sure how they would hold up after getting washed, so I decided to hand stitch around them to add a little reinforcement.
Are these not the cutest?

Well she inspired me to make my own little onesie.  Eric drew out this cute little monkey to copy the monkey from the bedding.  I then cut it out, ironed it on and then I hand stitched around it.  This picture is from before the hand stitching.  What do you think?  I can't wait for our little monkey to wear this.

So usually on the weekends we are just super eager to do something for the baby.  This weekend I decided to make some freezer meals ready to throw in the crockpot once the baby gets here.  I found this from pinterest.  I have 2 meals of each: Teriyaki Chicken, Savory Chicken to go over pasta, Lazy Day Stew, and then 1 meal of Italian Sausage and Peppers.  It took me less than 2 hours to chop all of the veggies, put everything together and seal them up using our sealer.  All of the ingredients cost about $60 so that comes to less than $10 a meal.

Just trying to do anything and everything to pass the time until this little one arrives.  Do you have any suggestions of things I can do to pass the time?


  1. Yay! Those onesies look adorable! :)

  2. Those onesies are so stinkin' cute! Good idea on the stitching, by the way! I'm not really sure of other ways to keep busy except just enjoying your last few weeks of it being just the two of you :) So excited for y'all!
