amandacowley We made it to a week old! Today was the first day Mama felt like a human being, and the lipstick is proof of that. We're cherishing every inch of this sweet boy, from his Chevy Chase bum chin like Opa's, his pouty lips & big blue eyes, he has a hold of our hearts and I don't ever want him to let go. #mrjudejames #oneweekold 3d
  •   lori_walker27 @franabella live in them ;) the best. 3d
  •   amandacowley @franabella after a week without leaving the house, we got a little stir crazy and needed to get out -- big first trip out was Target & Oshkosh (stock up on newborn sleepers girl!). The jeans made me feel more normal, and the fact that they fit (lots of stretch in them jeans!), made me feel extra normal. 3d
  •   franabella @amandacowley love that you say that because I just washed all of baby borghesi's clothes and got them all hung up and noticed I only have 2 newborn sleepers... 2! I was like oh noooo I need to make a trip to the store before this little one comes! I have about 20 NB onesies tho but not enough sleepers. 3d
  •   amandacowley We didn't get any NB sizing as gifts (I know they grow out so fast), but he has been living in them and we had to run out twice to buy more! I'd say if you have 8-10, you're golden -- sleepers are on sale at Carters for $8 right now! 3d
  •   adorabless Is that how u even hold a baby lol 3d
  •   amandacowley @adorabless this one doest mind! 3d
  •   mightyeidty @amandacowley you are even more radiant now then you were before, IF that is even possible 2d
  •   franabella Thanks for the tip girl I will be hitting Carters tomorrow!!! 2d

amandacowley Bath time with the old man. Usually he likes his sponge baths from women with lots of cleavage who fan him with palms and feed him wine soaked grapes, but this will do. #mrjudejames 6d

amandacowley We're just gonna spend the next 3 months snuggled up in bed waiting for Spring to arrive. For now, I have a little island babe sportin' his beanie and smothered in coconut oil, a man who treats me like gold despite my less than lovely state, and a pooch just out of view, keeping babe's toes toasty warm. #mrjudejames #2daysold #superfresh 1w

amandacowley Of all his aliases (Lennon, Lenny, Leonard, Mr. Meow Meow, Handsome Man, Little Grey Cat & Kittan) our favourite nickname for him is Narcissus. People always ask why I keep mirrors on the floor -- they're not for me, they're for Narcissus, and I don't blame him. He's gorgeous. 2w

amandacowley 40 weeks and we're fully cooked, stick a fork in me, I'm done. Never thought I would make it to my due date, but here we are. I was hoping he would be like his old man and show up early, but it turns out he's more like his mama and prefers the fashionably late route (I think it's more rude to be early for things than it is to be late anyways). Babe's the size of a fruit larger than a watermelon (my app stopped registering comparisons) and is pretty much spending his time just fattening up in there, so that's always fun. I've been given every tip & trick under the sun to encourage him to come out and he's not given even a hint of making an appearance. For now I'll just waddle around like a nesting Nonna, watch everything on Netflix ten times over, and enjoy each moment of these final days of carrying him as I have until now. #weebebecowley #40weeks #duedate 2w

amandacowley Currently. In my beaut outfit, on my yoga ball, bouncing up a storm. Thankful to my Mama for our pedi date yesterday (that poor esthetician never worked harder for her money), my slippers, which are the only thing these swollen mothers fit into, and a hubby who gets me mugs of coffee and lets me cry every 3 hours or so. #40weekstomorrow #somekindofsickjoke #weebebecowley 2w

amandacowley 39 weeks and perhaps the last update of this journey. What does 39 weeks pregnant feel like? Do the splits for 3 weeks straight and you'll have an idea. Babe is the size of a watermelon, which absolutely blows my brains. He still moves around as much as ever (it's as comfortable as it sounds), but I love it nonetheless. Fun fact: his testes have apparently dropped, however if he arrives during this cold snap, I think they'll be making their way back to where they came from. I've actually decided that the frigid weather is part of the reason he's staying put, so I've been playing my "Get The Eff Out" playlist which includes a lot of Bob Marley, Major Lazer & Sister Nancy as a way to try and trick him into making an appearance. Fingers, toes and pretty much everything but my legs crossed it works. #weebebecowley #39weeks 3w
  •   andi_roze Take a super long walk! I tried every old wives tale in the book and not a single one did a single thing to make the bebe come on time, but I've heard lots of gals swear by an extra long walk, like 2 hours, just bring Paul along in case! 3w
  •   leeabelle you're the most beautiful pregnant woman EVER 3w
  •   alioppenlaender You are stunning! 3w
  •   kc_slater0 Jude dude needs to hurry this shit up. 3w
  •   jesekahb How lovely that he's all snug & comfy in there, with little kicks and swishes that are like a little secret just for his mama. Also awesome? The last month of pregnancy and the switch that gets flipped, making you willing to do anything to get the baby the eff out. Hoping he decides to arrive at just the right moment :) best of luck to you! Xx 3w
  •   erindints Thanks for sharing your pregnancy with us. This hormonal ol' lady gets weepy everytime you post ! In so excited for you for the best ride your life! Xo 3w
  •   amandacowley Thank you so much friends! I love reading your notes and stories and how you've cried along (I can't be the only one!). We are so excited to meet this little bundle, and every day he makes us wait fills me with even more excitement. Thanks so much, from the bottom of my heart. 3w
  •   jessicalittle_photog It's been a beautiful journey! --I'll be thinking about you lots over the next week or so. Can't wait to hear all about it. Have mercy on my ears though. (I don't know about you, but I'm scared shitless of that moment). 3w

amandacowley The bar cart is Valentine's Day ready and I can't wait to toast with those champagne cups from my favourite consignment shop. Scored 8 of them at .25 cents each, and as far as I'm concerned they're cuter/less of a safety hazard for someone like me than flutes. #acsweethome 3w

amandacowley A better view of the gallery wall in #weebebecowley's room. Most pieces were free printables I found through Pinterest and sent to a local print shop, a few were collected from craft shows over time, a thing or two from Chapters, and the large print of the train scene is from Ikea. #gallerywall #nursery 3w

amandacowley One more little corner of #weebebecowley's nursery to share. His beautiful @babyletto crib I had been dreaming about since week 5 from his Nonno & Nonna, lovingly assembled with minimal swearing by his dad, a gallery wall of fun things to hopefully bring him joy and to change and grow as he does, and all the natural light he could ever want to wake up to each morning. I have loved putting this room together for our sweet little meatball, and I can't wait to spend lots of time in here, snuggling, smooching and loving on him. #eclecticnursery #39weeks #ABMathome #acsweethome 3w
