5 months!

Dec. 16th Charlie hit 5 months! Everyday you are more alert and aware of everything around you. You are such a delight with a smile that lights up your face!You now love the sound of your own voice and make the cutest gurgling noises! Your reflux totally sucks and you are on 2 rx's but it does seem to be getting better. You are finally starting to take naps longer than 20 minutes. Mommy now has some sanity! Yippee! Your favorite new thing is to sit in your activity chair.You have started to go in your exersaucer and have great hope that you will want to spend long than 10 minutes in it! You love to play with your feet and headbutting seems to be your new hobby! Not a day gos by that I don't think that you are becoming such a big boy! I don't even mind the 3 am wake up calls it seems to be our only quiet time away from things to do.Plus it is nice to look at your sweet little face lit up by the street light!

4 months

Here we are at 4 months! You have become part saint bernard and drool over everything! no teeth have showed up yet. You are such a attention hound you love to smile and coo at strangers for attention! You made a woman's 97th birthday at Target! You didn't want to leave her side you just laughed and giggled. Since you rolled over at 5 weeks you took a break but are ampping it back up! The only real thing that you will spend time in is your jumpy gives you a break from your mat! You love to be around other kids you can just sit around and watch them all day! You love to go for walks in your pram but it is getting too cold and rainy for that :( You love your mommy and would be happy for me to hold you all day long! Most days I don't mind! :) It is so much fun to watch you grow.

Maternity Photos!

I might be back tracking a little but I figure it is my blog and I can if I want too! Keith and I went down and had some maternity photos done at the Euharlee Covered Bridge. Why I thought out door photos during the summer were a good idea I still am not sure but am really happy with how they turned out. It is really hard to be chunky and pg at the same time. Finding flattering maternity clothes is a joke and everyone's answer is too but a size up. That only works if you buy knit bed rest is bad enough I really don't need to look like a shut-in at the same time! I still have not finished my pg journal it is kind of hard to sound up beat when you feel like junk all the time. After about 30 minutes of not having my feet up they totally swell up I was going to take a picture but opted not to gross everyone out! I figure all the will be over soon enough and Charlie will be here in a couple of weeks and I will forget all about this mess and just have these fun pictures as a reminder!

It's a Boy!

Today was my 2nd gender ultrasound and they confirmed that it is a boy! Charles Harrison it is!He is going to look really silly in all of these dresses I bought! :0 My sister and Shira came with me to the Dr.'s appt. Hollie brought me a pink package and boy package. I got to open the blue one and it was the cutest striped sleeper that says "Rock me to sleep". I was not very quiet about the face that I would like to have daughters running around the house but I know Heavenly Father has a awesome plan for our family. I was not too shocked about having a boy because at breakfast Keith was like just so you know it is a boy and I really have just come to take his word on such things.Keith couldn't make it to the Dr. appt but we met up for lunch and he got to check out the photos.

20 weeks!!Halfway done!

Wow! It has been forever since I have posted. Yikes! Today I got a email to inform that I am half way done baking this baby! Yoohoo! Last Monday I went to have my ultrasound and thankfully everything look good but they could not tell us a gender!The baby's leg were spread but nothing was showing! At first I thought who cares it is only a month but after 8 days I am dying. The day after the u/s I went to a 1000 person consignment sale and thank goodness my friend Betsy put back most of my stuff so I only sent $46. Hollie and me are going to hit a few more sales ;) and I am totally excited about this one! The last 2 weeks I have been sick (and cranky) but Keith has been taking really good care of me. The last 20 weeks have been pretty uneventful as far as the fetus gos. I have just been really tired and if I get too tired then I trow up. Good times!

Children's keepsakes ornaments!

I love these coaster ornaments! I broke up a Dove of the East coaster mini book kit and stamped the back of the coaster with the kid's hand and cut and mat the photos on the other side. To finish it off I punched a hole with a crop-a-dile and added clear tread with a charm with the ribbon hanger. This is a super budget friendly way to send the whole family a keepsake!

Be sure to check all the great OT creations this week and keep coming back every Thursday this month. Lots more planned!
