every spring i try and bring a new plant in our home. this is the one i've chosen for this year. it is supposed to blossom little orange flowers and i can't wait to see how they turn out. last year i bought six plants and a whole four of them survived to see this spring which i'm pretty proud of considering i don't have the greenest of thumbs. let's hope this beauty will be as lucky ... fingers crossed!

also ... i've been listening to this song a lot lately so i thought i'd share:)

camden and i have been working pretty hard to get things a bit more ready for upcoming baby. we've gotten the baby room cleared out and cleaned and we just set up the crib last night ... and by we i mean i separated the screws and bolts and read the instruction while camden did everything else. things are far from complete but at least are a lot closer than they were before. here is just a little of what we've gotten done so far. i even got the few outfits we do have folded and organized in a drawer. more soon:)

a little bump-date

if you follow me on instagram then you probably already know we had a bit of a scare the other day. tuesday morning i started spotting. i immediately called my doctor who said to come in as soon as possible. it turned out not only was i spotting but i was unknowingly having pretty regular contractions. we were quickly sent to the labor and delivery unit at our hospital where they finally determined i had a placenta abruption. things got really scary for a few moments when they first thought the abruption was a lot worse than it really was and started making arrangements for me to deliver within the next few days at only just over twenty-nine weeks. however a second ultrasound showed that the abruption was a lot smaller than it was originally thought to be. we were still ordered to stay in the hospital for the next twenty-four to forty-eight hours depending on how things went. i was given steroid shots to help develop baby jude's lungs quicker and medicine to stop the contractions. we were released wednesday evening on pelvic rest ... pretty much meaning i don't have to be on bed rest but still have to take it a lot easier than i have been ... no heavy lifting, no exercising, just plain taking it easy. as of now baby jude is still probably going to have to be born early ... my doctor currently thinks no later than thirty-six weeks which means i would only have six weeks to go instead of ten. our doctor said that the placenta abruption probably didn't happen because of anything i or we did or didn't do, it's just one of those weird things that can sometimes happen. we have both been a little overwhelmed knowing our baby room is still a mess and we both just really feel so unprepared. it's now go time ... time to hurry and get our butts in gear and prepare for this baby since technically he could be here anytime. on the bright side, baby jude is healthy as ever and at the end of the day that's all either of us could really ask for.
