Number 3

I hinted a while back that we had something brewing here.... and those that see me daily are EXTREMELY aware of what it is. But, until today, we did not know much more. Now we do, so I'll loudly announce our good news....


Dave and I are expecting our third beastie on January 1st... or December 31, if I have anything to say about it. And, it is official - #3 is a "she". Hooray! Well, I'm truly "hooray-ing" for toes and fingers and all the other parts being there, but it is quite fun to think baby girl again. Especially since I had not dabbled in sewing my first time around with Rowan.

Our ultrasound went fantastic today - Miss Three was kicking and squirming around quite like her oldest sibling did on her big debut 7 years back.

Rowan is thrilled to have a baby sister. Griffin, on the other hand, is not so excited about having another sister. Only after I promised him that we could ask the baby if she wanted a little boy haircut did he decide it might be ok. I'll have to make sure to be hyper diligent to ensure he does not decide to barber the baby himself.

Dave is happy, and me? I'm round and puffy and celebrated our ultrasound with a chocolate covered doughnut and some decaf rootbeer. Good times~

Hopefully now that we've reached the 1/2 point, I'll get some of my crafting groove back. I've been a bit of a vegetable of late. Lots of reading, napping and cabin-ing. The idea of little girl clothes is giving me an itch to get sewing though - so things are looking up.
