Happy New Year!
Hello, friends! (If there are any of you still around!) I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed your New Year’s Festivities.
We had a wonderful time with family and friends. And a less wonderful time with sickness. Our whole family came down with some form of sickness or another. We’ve all had a round of antibiotics and at least one of us has been sick for the past month…so you can imagine how fun that has been!
And now, my news…Baby #3 is on its way!
We are about 14 weeks along and this little one will be joining us sometime around the end of June. We (hopefully) get to find out the gender in a couple weeks and we will finally be able to say “he” or “she” instead of “it.” Obviously we really only care about a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery, but I have to say I think we are both hoping for a girl. You know, we have all the stuff for girlies already and I think I just prefer girls. My sister is definitely hoping for a boy though. She had her sweet boy in September so these two cousins will only be 9 months or so apart. And really that will be fun for them no matter if we have a boy or a girl.
And I have to say…look at that picture above! They (whoever “they” are) were right…you really do “pop” way earlier with later pregnancies!
Okay, now for my apologies…my poor little blog has been “dark” for ages now. Between the sheer exhaustion early pregnancy brings, the play our church did just before Christmas and quite a good amount of business through the Shop, I just haven’t been able to make myself sit down and do the work of editing pictures and writing, etc. So, while I have been sewing lots (and lots), I have also been doing quite a lot of sleeping!
I’ve updated my To-Do List by crossing off the things I was actually able to accomplish this past Fall. Of course my list was far more than I could take on…especially once I became pregnant! But, I did get through some things and I will be blogging them here soon. I’ll be updating the list for my Spring projects soon too. One of the things I plan to do in order to kick start things here again is participating in the Project Run & Play sew-along again. I am excited about the challenges (one of them is for boys, so I get to sew something for my little nephew!) and the whole process will make me start blogging regularly again. Thank goodness I am now officially in the second trimester and have my energy back. And the New Year has given me a new motivation to get some things done!
So, for those of you who stuck around through the quiet…your patience will be rewarded!
