The Good Report

This week I dig the following:

1. A nursery leader who doesn't mind letting L cry it out.
2. Meeting J for lunch in the park.
3. These jumpers. They finally fit L
4. More great little girl clothes. I'm so copying one of them.
5. Havarti cheese. Mmmmm

20 weeks Profile


Ok. I feel A LOT bigger than this picture looks.

Corsage from Jeff

Mother's Day 2009

It almost survived church. L ripped off one of the blooms during the last hour.

I am totally diggin' this new tradition. And I like this one even better than last year's

Freaky ultrasound pic


baby #2 at 20 weeks

Girl Names

In the running for girl #2.........

Megan Margaret
Grace
Allison
Jane
Audrey
Anne/Anna
Elizabeth

Megan has been the favorite on our list the longest. It never seems to lose ground, but for several weeks I was digging Allison, and then recently Elizabeth took the lead. We'll see when what happens when baby arrives.

Sometime after she was feeling better



she was almost still...but no luck. I'd really like her to work on her "let mommy take a picture" skills.

Digging for Treasure

The Good Report

1. Hubs and I took turns going to see X-Men at local theater. It was awesome.
2. No more fountains of poop coming out of L's tiny hiny. It's been a great week.
3. Found a maternity swimsuit for $16. This year: royal blue.
4. Lydia who I haven't seen in 7 or 8 years (maybe more) stopped by with her family.
5. Perfect weather. And I mean perfect.
6. I'm feeling soooooooo much better. Woohoo!
7. Still no Dr. Pepper for J. I'm so proud
8. $1.50 milk at Walmart.
9. Yesterday I took a two hour nap while Jeff and L walked the golf course and threw rocks in the stream.
10. Finally got some bar stools for the kitchen (mother's day present) that are way more comfy (and cheaper) then the ones I originally wanted.



when you have a minute check out the photos of this birthday party. Wowza!

SIDE NOTE: Every day there is a new mystery smell in our house that I can't find the source of. Pregnancy nose is a killer.

Age 17 months

I see Jeff in her every time. It's the eyes.





***Thanks, Binnie, for the clip

This may have been a sick day



I can't remember for sure, but I think this was last week during the horror show. Eeeeee!

It was only peaceful when they were sleeping.

Belated Easter

dress I made for S







Easter was super chill this year. My sister was crazy busy and I, of course, am crazy pregnant. So we didn't really care about much. Meaning we didn't get into the table setting or our outfits. We had tacos for Easter dinner.....one of my bro in laws specialties. And I only finished one of the dresses I planned on producing. Oh well! There is always next year and the next year and the next year.




*** I love these bunny ears. $1 at Joanns

Family Pics




my hair is looking D-A-R-K. It's time for some serious C-O-L-O-R.














I think this is my favorite of us all together.





***Thanks to Trav who is always super flexible and said yes somewhat last minute. I think I'll give him a break and not ask him to take our Christmas card this year (he hates taking family pictures as much as I do) and hire this insanely affordable girl I ran across in blog world.
