..to baby #2!!!!
We are so very very excited!!!! I had my first ultrasound about 2 weeks ago and it is SOOO amazing to see little legs and that heart beating (173 times/min!). I am due August 12, and am approaching the end of my first trimester. We are not going to find out what it is this time, either, just as we didn't find out with Charlotte. At first i thought it was a boy because I feel so different. But seeing that heart rate at 173, I now think it is a girl. I would love to hear your guesses! :)
For the entire month of December, I was SOOOOO sick and tired...I would just lay on the couch all day and couldn't do anything (hubby would prbably say "that's nothin' new".. :) ). Over the holidays, I got he stomach bug and had a bad sinus infection for 2 weeks, so needless to say, I was pretty useless. I just didn't have any spirit this year.
But I have been feeling great the past two week....still tired, but not sick. I had a bowl of vanilla ice cream the other night, and right after I was still hungry. So I ate a half a jar of green olives with some olive juice. Gross.
Of course as with any happy event, I have to do a page about it. I used some Basic Grey Olivia papers from my January Your Scrapbbok Stash kit. Perfect timing for these papers! Some of the stickers and the background are Bella Blvd Lovey Dovey.
I stitched a light pink circle and then fussy cut a lot of the flowers and cute little animals from the BG papers.
I had so many of these papers left over, and I love how they had pink and blue and green in them...perfect for a baby book. So I decided to make a little journal where I can write about how I am feeling each month of my pregnancy, and any milestones that I hit.
I used two Maya Road chipboard albums, and covered the front and backs of each piece with papers. Then I punch a simple label from white cardstock, outline the edge with black pen, used a "month" rub-on (some old ones from Daisy D's), and then some thickers for the month. I left the oppisite side intentionally blank to add some strips of typed journaling.
Well, that is our exciting news!!!! Of course I will be posting updates (and layouts!) over the next 7-8 months! Thanks for stopping by!
