Finally Cards!!

Okay, okay, so it wasn't the same weekend, but I did make these cards that weekend and just haven't had time or energy to post. As most of you moms know what I am talking about. We are down to 9 weeks and counting. I cannot wait to meet our little bundle of JOY.

Okay, enough about baby, I have received 2 baby gifts already and needed to make thank yous for them. Here is what I came up with. I copied the layout, from a fellow blogger and stamper, Stamping with Serendipity aka Mom Pam. It took me a few days to get them in the mail, but know for a fact that they were received and loved!! Let me know what you think and hopefully I will be posting pictures of the nursery sometime soon!!

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!

A little less than 13 weeks left and you will all get to see pictures and know what we are having!! Enjoy your weekend and stop back by, I promise there will be something creative posted!!

New pictures

We had a bit of a scare yesterday. While I was at work, I started to get period like cramps in my lower abdomen. I called the doctor's office worried since we miscarried in January, I just wanted to make sure everything was okay. While we were there, the doctor checked over everything, pushed on my tummy and listened to the heartbeat said everything felt and sounded good, but just wanted to make sure that everything on the inside was good too.
Hence the new ultrasound pictures. The ultrasound lady looked at how far along we are and said if we wanted to know we could tell at this stage and ultrasound. We pondered the idea and then decided we didn't want to know. So enjoy the pictures and take your guess at what will be arriving in May of 2009!

16 weeks and 4 days

Here is a picture of me at 16 weeks and 4 days into my pregnancy. Things are going really well, I have been feeling so much better I am able to eat. At our last appointment I had not gained any weight which was not a big deal. We will see how things are going next week when I go back for my next appointment. I will try and post monthly belly pictures. We missed 12 weeks because it was deer season and my husband had the camera with him. Thanks for stopping by!

I know it has been a while

So I know I have been absent for the whole month of October and the only excuse I have is, the little one growing in my belly!!
That is right my husband and I are expecting our first child May 17Th! We are both excited and I am a little scared. Hard to believe that we are going to be parents! As some of you may remember we lost a baby at 5 1/2 weeks. Well we are 7 weeks past that and doctor says everything looks good. I am exactly 12 weeks today! And starting to feel better. I spent the last 6+ weeks getting sick everyday several times a day. The doctor gave me some medicine to help with it and I am eating smaller meals more often and finding that, that helps. So far I have LOST 4 lbs, but that is expected the doctor said. We will see him again November 13 and will be able to hear the heartbeat at this appointment.
We have decided not to find out what we are having as we want it to be a surprise. Stop back by and I will hopefully have some pictures to post as I am growing and giving you updates on our progress. I am hoping to start making cards and crafts now that I will hopefully be feeling better. Thanks for stopping and please keep us in your prayers for a healthy and beautiful child!

Here is how I spent my birthday

Okay, as promised here are the items I sewed the weekend of my birthday. The first one is a rag quilt. It is made of 6 different cotton materials and flannel. I picked 3 and my husband picked 3. Can you guess who picked what?

The next is a hooded towel, my friend Jami showed me how to make these and boy was it easy. My niece loved it so I am going to make her one.

Next are burp towels. I saw these at a store in Omaha and knew I could so that. The 3 different kinds of material I used were the ones my huband picked. I had extra so I thought I would put it to good use.

The final two items are boppy lounger covers. This is what stemed all of this sewing. Our friends in Florida, Loryn and Jason, check out their blog, listed under friend Pace's. Asked if I could make a couple lounger covers for them. So this is how they turned out. Thanks for stopping by.

A bouns card for everyone too. My friend Jennie had a baby boy on 9/3 and this is the card I sent to her and her family. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I have made!!!
