Nesting 4th of July-style

Even John is nesting these days! Check out these three articles of clothing that he stenciled/spray painted for the baby... & it just so happened that they are red, white, & blue. Happy 4th of July!
(I thought the owl needed some button eyes)

Over the 4th weekend, we had some friends come into town. Whenever we have people stay with us, there's usually always one big meal that we plan & this time was no exception. Because of the ridiculous heat & lack of air conditioning in our home, we decided to take the meal outdoors...
We had a Mexican-themed meal... fresh corn tortillas, shredded chicken, avocado, black beans, salsa verde, & this amazing corn thing that Keri shared with us (corn on the cob with Mexican sour cream, chili powder... I think that's it... it was amazing!)
& Lisa made some 4th of July-inspired cupcakes (lemon & blueberry)... you'll have to ask her for the recipe because they are outstanding!
Our "back yard" meal!

In other news, we have our 36 week appointment this week & our midwife is actually coming to our house for it to make sure we have everything we need for the birth. It's crazy to think that on Sunday, our baby will be full term & s/he could arrive at any time! I think we're as ready as we'll ever be... my body is starting to feel the toll of being pregnant (especially in this heat) so I'm ready to meet this kid!

Could you pray for us? Here's what we need prayers for:
  • Physical relief, especially from the heat & from exhaustion. It seems like lately I cannot get enough sleep & I feel very tired most days. I haven't had much of an appetite (I think mostly because of the heat), so it's been a challenge to get all my protein, fruits, & veggies in! I've also had some pretty normal pregnancy swelling, which is more uncomfortable than anything. I'm still learning the art of putting my feet up & not doing too much :)
  • That the baby won't be born much later than the 7th (the estimated due date)
  • A smooth, safe, & quick labor & delivery
  • & of course, that we would transition well into being parents
We really appreciate it & look so forward to sharing some baby Haas pictures with you soon!!
