29 Weeks

Ok Mom here are your pictures!!

What an awesome surprise!

I received a large package in the mail today from a co-worker that I used to work with in Clearwater who I miss very much...daily work life just isn't the same in Sarasota.
She sent me this awesome bassinet with cute teddy bears, onesies, burp clothes, mickey mouse and a very cute blanket! How adorable.
Thank you soo much Carol!!!

Valentine's and a new mailbox

So most of you know that I had my mail stolen around Christmas time. Two separate occasions someone took my mail. Lost checks and lost giftcards, not fun! So my dad got me a new mailbox that you have to use a lock to get the mail out. So hopefully the losers won't come back and steal my mail again, and yes you are a loser if you steal my mail including my grandmother's Christmas present!

Here are some of the Valentine's stuff that Tom got me. He loves to spoil me with stuff. I got lots of candy too. Yummy!!!

I hope that everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I am still hanging in there and ticking along with my pregnancy. I made the mistake of trying to do some yard work yesterday and today I am paying for it big time. My body hurts so bad all over, back pains, leg pains and just overall its difficult for me to get up and move. Not fun. I didn't realize how physically demanding pregnancy can be and how you really have to adjust to the changes. So on top of no more sewing, no more yard work either... maybe housework too cause I just can't do it.

Baby clothes sewing

So I attempted my first try at sewing clothes. I found a pattern for a baby dress, its the Itty Bitty Baby Dress from Made By Rae. I used that to make the three dresses and then the apple dress was suppose to be a dress but it looks more like a top. Hopefully Hannah will like these. I figured I could put her in a onesie and then put the dress on and she will look oh soo cute.

Oh and I think I'm done sewing for a while. With just a little amount of time sewing my back is KILLING me!!!

Baby burp cloths

So I have been searching forever trying to find nice burp cloths, or cloth diapers to make burp cloths. After looking at the ones in the baby section, they all seem thin and made of this gauze material that just isn't soft and doesn't seem thick enough. So I finally found some nice microfiber kitchen towels that I think are perfect. They are soo soft!! So I got them and added fabric to them and ta-da instant cuteness!

It's hard not thinking of baby stuff all the time now, its like consuming me! I can't seem to think of anything else!
I did manage to get the crib this weekend thanks to a generous co-worker who just happened to bring the crib over and set it up for me and Tom. Yeah to that!
Oh and I also got a swing on clearance at Target. I still need a million things and I'm trying hard to not buy stuff until I have a baby shower but that seems sooo far away!!!
