Baby Boy Atkinson // 33 weeks update

To say this pregnancy has been a blur would be an understatement.  It has been, simply put, EVERYTHING.  Slow and quick,  Hard and simple, Painful and peace filled, defeating and up lifting.  It's been a rollercoaster in every sense of the word and I am just so thrilled to finally be nearing the end of this journey.  We officially have around 5 or 6 weeks until this baby arrives and I've got a ton of work to get done in that time.  There's an entire nursery that needs my attention, some prints and products I need to crank out to have ready for a super special launch next month, and so many snuggles and cuddles to give to my girls while it's just the three of us all day each day.

There's rest to take and nesting to do and hospital bags to be packed and about a million other things I still have to do, which is why I'm cutting off orders so early before my due date.  Every day I feel myself pull farther and farther into my little "birth bubble" which means this textbook introvert is introverting even more for better or worse and I feel this deep need to just be protective over the time I have left in this amazing journey.  As far as I know this will be my last pregnancy and I just need to soak up these final weeks for what they are.

That being said, February 19th is the last day that I am accepting custom orders.  My shop will still be up and running for prints and some exciting new products that are coming your way but I will be shutting down the commissioned art section of my business as we prepare for baby and adjust to life with him in it.  I am totally uncertain on when I will feel ready to take on these types of pieces again (I've never been a mom of three before) so If there is something you're really hoping for during the next few months please get in touch soon!

Our little family is endlessly grateful for all the love and support we have received during what has certainly been my most difficult pregnancy of all and I can't express that gratitude in adequate words.  We can't wait to share our newest family member with you all to love on soon and we promise to keep you updated on his arrival when the time comes.  In the meantime, we are endlessly grateful for all the prayers we can get for a healthy remainder of this pregnancy and a smooth delivery for each of us.
