Tattoos, Progress & Signs

Um I'm really excited to do this already!
Mostly because I want Ro in my arms.
Kind of because I hate how bad my heartburn is at night now.
Partly because I've finally decided what tattoo I'm getting for the bird after she's born and I can't waaaaaait!

I've been thinking up ideas for a tattoo to get in honor of Ro this entire pregnancy. I was already itching for another one before I was pregs, but once you're actually pregs and can't get one you start obsessing over it! I'm glad I decided on something right before she's here so I can run out and get it the first chance I get! (I know, I know it probably won't be for a while.. but then again my mom will be staying with us for 3 months so I will have a built-in babysitter..)

Also: I'm 2cm dilated!
And I saw this right when we got home from the doctor's appt and instantly felt like it was a sign that she'd be here soon:
A tiny baby feather for a tiny baby bird..


  1. Aww. That's awesome!

    I can't wait to see what you choose to get as a tattoo!

  2. Aww sweet :)
    I can't wait to see what you have planned for the tattoo for her!
    I have my son's name tattooed on me, but want something more done for him eventually someday :)
    Yay, baby soon!!

  3. eek she could be here soon :]
    a heads up on the tattoo, which btw, whats it gonna be? i love tattoos! anyway yeah, some artists wont tattoo while youre breastfeeding, risk of infection or something. i got one done while i was though so idk.

  4. Cuuuuute!! :) Can't wait to see the tattoo!

  5. oh how exciting! Little Ro isn't too far away now.

  6. YAY for progresss!!!! Can't wait to see what you end up getting for a tattoo :)

  7. I was the same way with Evangelina. I kept trying to come up with ideas for my next tattoo and it took me 2 years to finally come up with one for her. haha. Its a heart/peace sign that says Te amo in it and has her initials. However, it didn't take me long to figure up a tattoo for my husband to get in honor of her. I drew up a flying white dove carrying a shamrock in its mouth and holding a banner that says "She who brings good news." He got it on his leg when she turned one by our favorite tattoo artist in Pittsburgh.
    Now I am trying to finish the idea for my back piece.

    2cm is great! Not much longer now. :D let's just pray that it doesn't take 2 weeks for you to go from 2cm to 10cm. That wouldn't be fun.

    I hope you have a great day mama bird!

  8. What a sweet sign! That's lovely!!

  9. I can't wait to get one either and yeah the fact that I know that I'll be waiting awhile now makes it worse. Yayyy on the 2cm!!

  10. Hooray, can't wait to see Rowan!

  11. 2 cms! Woot woot! Hey, that's SOMETHING, right? :)
    I'm totally curious about her tattoo. Well, not HERS... you know what I mean. My husband and I have thought about doing the same thing, but we haven't decided on what would really represent our little man yet. Eh. We'll figure it out eventually!

    Jamie: Awesome! I wanna see your tattoo!

    Alissa: Yea I've heard that.. luckily my friend is a tattoo artist and legit so I wouldn't be too worried to get one. Oh and I'm just going to wait and show you guys what it is once I get it because... honestly... I've had a bit of a problem with a person I know ( and that lives in Hawaii) stalking my blog and copying everything so the last thing I want is her running out and getting my tattoo on her!! (she's completely psycho!)

    Janet: Thanks! I can't wait to get it.. I wanna do it now! haha

    Kat: I know, I'm SOOOOO excited!

    Katie: I know I could be 2cm for weeks but you're right, it's still progress! ;o)

    Posidanielle: Cute! and thank you darlin... ;o)

    CourtneyKeb: I know right? A feather! It's too cute! :o)

    Brandee: yep... waiting out the whole pregnancy feels like forever but now that I'm nearing the end, it feels like it flew by! Ohhh how time works.. ;o)

    Jessica: <33333333

    Jess: I love tattoos in honor of your babies! Cool that you plan on getting one too ;o)
