Happy Friday!

I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that this might be my last week of having just one little boy around the house. Crazy. No baby yet...hopefully soon. In the meantime, we are busy trying to get lots of little things done around here before Baby Brother arrives.

It was so fun to read all of your comments and stories from my last post. Levi is still doing great without his paci. Nights have been no big deal at all. Amazing. He is still crying himself to sleep at nap time, but it is getting better each day. And he still loves Ally. We are praying that the transition to having a baby brother around goes just as smoothly! :)

To answer a few of your questions...

You can get your own Ally the Alligator here. There are lots of other cute animals too. And after reading your suggestions I might be ordering myself a second Ally...just in case.

Levi uses GumDrop pacifiers. You can get them here. They are the same ones that they give the babies at my hospital.

A couple people have asked me about the layout on my InstaFriday posts. There are no big secrets. All I do is load my photos directly into blogger and then change them to the small size so that two will fit side by side. That's it!

Here are a few pictures from our week:

1. No trip to Target is complete without sitting on a big red ball. He asks EVERY time.
2. Goodbye pacis...hello Ally the Alligator. First morning without a paci. All smiles.
3. BSF started this week. We are studying Acts this year. I am so glad to be back.
4. After a trip to JoAnns I left with some cute boy fabric. Maybe something for baby?
5. Haircut #2...this time from Grammy.
6. Another thing finished on my huge to-do list. Clean baby clothes and blankets. Check.
7. A trip to the Vintage Soiree today. Tomorrow is the craft fair...I hope I am feeling up to going.
8. Trying out the new chair. Slipcover is almost finished {thanks to Grammy}. Yay!

Have a great weekend!

Is that the basket (photo 6?) your mom bought in the Philippines? I had one too.... wait, we ALL had one! Hope it is the same one, it looks great.
All the best with baby boy #2. You'll have a wonderful time playing with the boys

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Baby Boy Mac arrives on 9/25!! It's literally the best day of the year to have a baby. (: Hope you have a great last few days of pregnancy and that your delivery is quick & easy.

We've been mirroring activities the past few weeks - so funny reading your blog b/c we went to the fair and Shep gave up his paci's last week too. Thinking of you and praying for your family as you get ready and transition to the new babe:)

Love these pics of your week, Jess. Come on baby Mac! Hope you get a little bit of rest, hon, I think you'll need it for later. So exciting for all of you. Praying for you all.

Love that picture of Levi on the red ball at Target. It cracked me up because I just recently found a picture of my niece on one several years ago and tried to make her recreate it. But she wasn't having it. She's in high school now so apparently its not fun to her anymore. Lol!

Love your blog, btw :)

Hannah and Sophie have to stand on the red ball EVERY time! When Mindy was a toddler, someone told me to poke a hole in her paci and that really worked. She did not want it at all after that. She was pretty mad about it though. We really miss you in Bible study! We are doing David with Beth Moore.

Trust me that you will always need a second copy "comfort item". I have finally learned this, after going through the first two children out of five (guess I am a slow learner). God Bless your family!

You DEFINITELY better get an extra Ally in case he gets attached to it. We cut our daughters favorite green blanky in half when she was younger (since we could no longer get another one by the time we realized she was attached) and it was the best decision we ever made! one can be in the washer, one can be forgotten at gma's, one can be temporarily misplaced... maybe he won't get attached to it, but just in case he does it probably won't work to cut Ally in half. ;)
