39 weeks and still baking

I sure am glad that I was able to have a nice cool summer for the most part during this pregnancy. The past two weeks have been almost unbearable as the temperature and humidity have been working together to make me as miserable as possible lately. Thankfully the soon to be gramma and awesom-pa have a lovely pool that I can go jump in any time I want.

We are eagerly awaiting for this little nugget to show her self. I am trying to stay close to home as my mom recently revealed that both my brother and I came in to the world pretty quickly and really without much warning. Our hospital bag is packed and the car seat is about ready to get buckled in to my back seat.

I probably could use more time to clean the house and really get the house ready but at this point all I want to do is lay down and watch lame internet shows. I do have a lot of work to do with her quilt but at least I finally have all the pieces, they just need to be all stitched together. I am excited to share photos but for now I will just have to tell you it will be all vintage floral fabrics in strips down the front, some lovely 100% cotton batting, and a repurposed white sheet for the back. If I get really cutesy with this project I may even do some ribbon embroidery on the white side so it can have a decorative look too.

38 weeks and counting...

So here we are at 38 weeks. Miss Luna could come at any time and we are just barely ready for her. Bags are packed, we have to get her car seat in the car, I finally finished her crib sheet, still working on her blanket, still not on maternity leave, but all in all her daddy and I are very excited to meet this little one. Below is some artwork our friend Ilan made to congratulate us on our new addition, a large version is hanging over her crib. We love handmade gifts and look forward to buying and making her lots of handmade goodies during her lifetime.
