Interesting facts this week from babycenter
“How your baby's growing
Your baby is now ready to greet the world. At this point, the average full-term newborn is still building a layer of fat to help control body temperature after birth. Most babies are between 2.7 and 4.3kg / 6 and 9 1/2lb at birth, and boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls. All your baby's organs are developed and in place though his lungs will be the last to reach full maturity. Read more information on your baby's development this week.
How your life's changing
You may be feeling huge and uncomfortable during these final weeks. Try to take it easy - this may be your last opportunity to do so for quite a while. See a film, read a book that has nothing to do with pregnancy or babies, have your hair or nails done, or just spend time with your husband. Neither of you will have much time for cooking in the few weeks after your baby's born, but you could prepare some home-made frozen meals to enjoy when you need them. What else can you do? Make sure the car's filled up with petrol, and read our fun baby star signs.
Your husband should try to relax, too, and enjoy some activities there won't be time for after the baby arrives. Suggest some inspirational reading - he may need it when you go into labour. Is he worried about how he'll cope with a new baby in the house? Read our new dad's survival guide and debunk five myths of fatherhood.”
I am so nervous and anxious this week cause I know what I will be facing next week. I just hope and pray that everything will be normal and no complication. I have been waiting for this for a really long time. I love the feeling of hold a newborn in my arms and smell the sweet smell of a newborn.

I really really have a blast with these challenges. It has be awhile since the last time I make the time to scraps more than one layout in one day. Scrapping really is my therapy. I felt so much better after I made every layout.
Hope you have a beautiful and creative Friday!
Have a fun and creative Friday!

I am feeling a little bit energetic and inspired today. So as always, I love to hunt down beautiful layouts from talented ladies out there. So many to choose from and so many to scraplift.
This week I choose markojanett’s layouts to showcase. I like her style, simple and sweet.

Lately I’ve been shopping online a lot. One of the things that I bought is font. Some of the font out there is way too cute and I just have to have them in my collection. Usually I bought the font when it was on sale. And I’ve been using them over and over again.
So far these are my favourites:
And some free fonts from dafont that I really like

- Swaddling (Bedung) – I love this especially during nursing and when you want to put the baby to sleep. Now I know why this works.
- Side/Stomach position – I usually do this when I want to put the baby to sleep. I know this sleeping position is not highly recommend but it works for me. I just have to make sure there is not pillow and the baby sleep on a hard surface.
- Shhh – I tried this but I think my technique was wrong. I think I will give this a try with my newborn baby
- Swinging – I usually swing the baby when I’m holding the baby. And sometimes I use rocker. It works too.
- Sucking – I am not a fan of pacifier cause it’s very hard to maintain. I just use my finger or continue nursing until he fall asleep.
Have a wonderful and great Tuesday everyone!
