February Update

I realize that it has been a long time since I posted so you will have to bear with me and all the new posts. We have gone through a lot this month and things have just been crazy. Ashley has had pneumonia, and Katie had strep. Both girls have been given clean bills of health but Katie is still on inhalers to keep her from coughing, which they say at this point is just allergy related. Lewis went and came back from Tampa and he had a really bad cold too. I think that the only reason I haven't gotten sick is that I am constantly wiping things with Lysol. I joke that Sweet Pea will be born with Lysol running through her veins. The kids are so excited for the baby and we are trying to finish up getting ready. The kids helped to set up the crib and then I just noticed that the picture here you can't even really see it. They were so proud!!!

Some Sweet Pea Crafts

This is the rag quilt that I made for Sweet Pea. The picture below is the back of the quilt.

Here is the pretty clipped side after 3 washes and tumbles in the dryer.

These 2 pics are of the changing pad that I made for the diaper bag. I bought a pack of changing pads at Target and made 1 for me and 1 for a friend of mine that just had a baby girl.

And any self respecting baby girl in our family needs a fuzzy. I made it while Katie was sleeping with both of hers so it ended up a little smaller. I decided to just make one and then if she likes them the way that Katie does I will make an additional that is bigger.
I still have to finish the baby sling which is just about done ( I just need to finish attaching the rings), I will post how that turns out once it is done.

Belly Pic

So here I am in all my 35 week glory. Lewis keeps telling me that I look really thin but I feel like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.

Starting to get ready...

I started getting ready for little Sweet Pea this weekend and thought I would share some of the progress. I have two packs lap pads and receiving blankets, socks, diapers, wipies, blue bags, and my Glider!!! Not a ton but a start.

For some reason I have a box missing of all the newborn girls stuff. I think that someone at church in UT needed stuff and then I thought that we weren't having any more kiddos soon. But honestly I can't remember and it is driving me crazy not knowing where it ended up at.

I am so excited about my glider. It reclines and rocks and even came with an ottoman. I have wanted one of these since I got pregnant with Ash but never got one. Since I turn the big 30 this year right before the baby it is a birthday/Sweet Pea gift. Thanks All!!
