I like to think that I am a crafty person. In the past year and a half I have not had any time to pursue many of my crafts. I really enjoy scrap booking, crocheting and sewing. I am not an expert at any, just a novice that enjoys it.

I am blogging about this because I finally did a crafty project. I am so proud of myself. Mind you I worked on it mostly late at night or really (I mean really) early in the morning. None the less I completed it and I have plans to do more.

Here it is: my first Taggie Blanket!

I made it for a friend who just had a baby boy. I made all the tags from remnant fabric and the blanket is fuzzy fleece with white fuzzy fleece on the other side. It is really soft and cuddly.

Bubbie loves the fabric so I am going to make him a larger version of this one for his bed/crib.

I can't wait to give to my friend and her baby. She talked about the taggie blankets and all I could think of was how they couldn't be to difficult to make.

The best part about making things is giving them away to people who will enjoy them.

Christmas Morning

So this was our first Christmas in the new house and Bubbie's was able to enjoy it (now that he is 17 months old). We made it home late on Christmas Eve, but we made it. I so wanted Bubbie to wake up in our own house for Christmas morning.

Bubbie's eyes lite up when he saw the Christmas tree all lite and the presents underneath. He wasn't really into opening the gifts but he was into playing with them. He really enjoyed all the things he got.

Even though we were so busy running around visiting we had a great Christmas. To top it off Bubbie was well (no fever, no ear infections...knock on wood).

Looking forward to the New Year! We will have a new addition to our family in April so we are already blessed.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year to all!

Merry Christmas

I must say I am completely unorganized this Christmas. This has been the year of transition for our entire family. Even though we are finally in our own house and both G and I are working in the same state we are still far from settled. We threw in a pregnancy just to boot!

So this year we did not get the Christmas lights out, or to many of the decorations. I can say we did get a live tree and decorated it. Bubbie just loves it. His face light up when you bring down stairs in the morning and he see all the lights on it. He even help decorate. I am also proud to have gotten my Nativity Set up. That is about the extent of it.

No matter what I am really looking forward to Christmas morning with Bubbie. Last year he was only 6 months old. This year he will be able to open his presents by himself. I couldn't be more blessed and I am so Thankful for all that we have.
I would like to extend a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday and a Great New Year to all in the Blogosphere. I am so looking forward to the new year and reading every ones post.
See you next year!
HO! HO! HO! Merry Christmas

I never think I have anything worthwhile to write about so I tend not to write (I also suck at grammar if you haven't already noticed). I do however continue to read. I love reading ever bodies posts. Then I thought I should just write about anything. Nobody going to reprimand me if it sucks (just the opposite, no one has ever left anything but encouraging comments). Blogging for me is a outlet so I should just let it out.

I had the opportunity today to stop by Bubbie's daycare during nap time. It melts my heart to see him sleeping on the toddler cot like a big boy.

I realized that my baby is no longer a baby. I am welling up with tears as I type this. I can remember the first moment I saw him and the recognition in his eyes at my voice. I can still remember the sweet smell of his soft fine baby hair and how it would stick up after I washed it. I replay his first year of life over and over in my head with total disbelief that he is 17 months old.

I never knew that I could love a short, messy, non-compliant, temper driven individual so much. He never follows direction, he tears my house up, he make more laundry than my husband and me combine, he waste perfectly good food, he make me late for work, he exhausts me and won't let me go to the bathroom in peace. Yet, I wouldn't trade his stinky butt for the world. Now that's love (I would never stand for that if it was my husband).

He has his good points too. He gives the best opened mouth sloppy kisses, his laugh will melt your heart, you can't have a bad day after he smiles at you, he learns something wonderful and new each day, and he smells great after a bath!

It amazes me that he is mine and the God has trusted me with this unique individual. I am definitely blessed and now I will be doubly blessed when then next one arrives. I know that when the new baby comes Bubbies will definitely no longer be my baby, but he will always be my Bubs.

Yesterday we had out 20 week ultrasound. I was nervous (I always get nervous about these test), my husband could wait to find out the gender.

The US tech was awesome, she explained everything she was looking at. Here is the tally:
10 finger
10 toes
4 chambers of the heart
2 half of the brain
and a extra appendage between the legs!

We are having a boy!

I am going to be the proud Momma of two boys. I am so out numbered now, it just me an the cat.

G was gleaming when she told us boy. I am ecstatic all measurements were within normal limits and no major issues were identified. I am also happy to know he is a boy. I like knowing, so I get a sense of them in-utero. I felt like I knew Bubbie before I delivered him, I think knowing he was a boy helped.

My mother thought it was great, she said I get to be the Queen of the castle!

Yeah for me!
