18 weeks!!!

Today, we are 18 weeks along! The big gender reveal appointment is on Wednesday and we are soooooo excited! We also went nursery furniture shopping today and here is what we like so far...

This is the all around theme I am hoping for in a nursery. The above dresser and crib can be custom ordered in many finishes. We plan on going with an eggshell white, then adding color with the decor and bedding.

Here I am at 18 weeks

We are growing!

17 Weeks...

This week, we are 17 weeks into our pregnancy. So far, so good. Nothing major to report... no weight gain, belly looks the same and I am still eating just like I always have. People that I know who are just as far along as I am, having the cutest baby bumps and look pregnant. So, I am waiting for that still... My picture this week is BAD. I look big all over and I am not really looking that way at all. Funny how the camera adds pounds so generously :) I guess I am gaining it all in my arms, booty and legs. lovely.

The baby is weighing around 3.5 ounces and is about 5 inches long. That's about as big as the size of the palm of your hand. I am ready for our gender appointment, on the 28th! I am thinking the baby is a girl. Taylor is thinking the baby is a boy. We will see!

Baby A 16 weeks

As you all know, Today is the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Taylor and I have been glued to the TV all morning. It has all been so moving. My favorite scene was watching people at Ground Zero trace their loved ones names. My 2nd most favorite thing about today was this commercial, paid for by State Farm insurance. I love it!!

And a little Baby A Update:

Today we are 16 weeks along! The baby is about the size of an avocado and weighs 3.5 ounces. My total weight gain is 1 pound so far! So, I am feeling great. We are scheduled for a gender revealing ultra sound on September 28th. I cannot wait for that appointment!

Baby Bump so far...

Doily Table Runner

Wayyyyy back in July I did a simple project for a birthday gift.... My
friend Sarah posted this picture on her pinterest and I loved it so I was on a mission to A.) buy this table runner or B.) Make it myself if I could find enough doilies.

Pretty cute, huh?? I sure thought so.
I headed out to one of my local/ favorite antique malls an
d in one of the booths was a huge basket of doilies. Each one for $1... a buck... a single... uno dollar! So, I stocked up and grabbed as many different patterns and sizes as I possibly could!

We laid out all of the doilies and tries to create a good pattern for a table runner. Here is the final product. We ( My Sewing helper, Kathy) hand stitched the doilies to each other on the corners. It was quite the fragile thing, so I tried my best to be gentle.

The picture is so dark, but trust me...
the table runner turned out to be one cute little project!
