Baby Shopping!

I'm definitely starting to get into the nesting phase. I'm at the point where I want everything to be ready now, even thought I still have almost four more months! I gave a lot away to a friend who was having a baby. I really thought I was done and now I regret it! Oh well, it was for a good cause. She was very young and newlywed. Here are a few things I've gotten. I just need a stroller/car seat combo and I'll be all set... oh, and diapers too!! Need lots of diapers! :)

Bedding set

Baby Blankets
Receiving blankets that match bedding

Airplane Mobile

Boppy - I can't live without a boppy!!

Bassinet I got
Bassinet - I love that it's plain white!

Evenflo Stroller I want
And last the stroller/car seat I want to get.

I have the crib, swing, high chair. I don't have a changing table, but I do have Bradley's old one that's now being used as a dresser that I could use. Or I can just use his crib for now, and decide later if I really need one. I'm definitely nesting. I'm getting a little obsessed! :) Well, I'm still stitching on Summer Jubilee. Not much progress... I've been tired! Write more later!! :)

A little more progress...

I haven't been stitching much lately. I had to work an extra day this week, and I've worked pretty much all mid-shifts, which just ruin my whole day. Can't do much before or after work. So when I am off I'm usually lying in bed reading or watching TV. I just got off work and hubby is snoring up a storm! It's so funny - I wish I had a tape recorder! So since he's not waking up anytime soon I thought I'd read my blogs and BB's and update my blog. I think I'm getting a cold. This will be the 4th or 5th cold I've had since becoming pregnant. It's just such a joy!! Anyway, here's my progress pic of Summer Jubilee...

Summer Jubilee as of 3/23/06

Well, not much else going on... Write more later!!

Started a new project...

I decided to look through my leaflets and decided to start Summer Jubilee by Blackbird designs. I couldn't find a decent picture of it on the internet, so I took a pic. with my camera. It's not so great either. I have come to the conclusion I need a better camera!! Here's my pics...

I have been wanting to go to a cross stitch shop lately just to look at all the new designs. I feel so guilty though because I was so consumed with knitting I haven't been to my LNS in over a year and a half!! I wonder what they would say if I walked in??? I just don't know if I could face them!! Isn't it silly! There is a new shop in the Atlanta area The Needlework House. Maybe I'll check them out one of these days. It is a drive from my house though! Anyway, not much else going on. I got some cute baby clothes at Carter's today. I've mainly been buying onesies because it will be so hot when he's born!! Write more later!

Another small finish....

I love small projects that I can finish in a day or two. I just finished a Lizzie Kate freebie Bloom.

Well not much else... just being pretty lazy today. I didn't get much sleep this weekend because my mom had a stomach bug. She usually watches the kids when I work nights so I can sleep in. I didn't realize how spoiled I had gotten! :) Write more later!

It's a BOY!

I had a feeling it would be another boy! We are so happy and excited! I can't wait to see him and hold him now! Only about 19 more weeks!! :)

Now I'm trying to think of what I want to do next! :) I'm 20 weeks pregnant today... 1/2 way there! I go Saturday for my ultrasound and hopefully will find out what I'm having! He or She she has been wiggling and kicking quite a bit lately! That's the best part about being pregnant for me! :) Write more soon!
