A Finished Project...

I have always had a tendancy to take on large tasks and plan for them to be much simpler and less time consuming than they ever really should be. That being said, I started looking for bedding once I found out that we were having a girl, and finding nothing that fit well in our little blue room (I didn't have the heart to ask Tyson to repaint), I decided that I would go ahead and make it myself.
About a week ago I went to several fabric stores looking for the right prints, and then on Monday I dragged Tyson with me and I bought fabric. Knoewing myself, I knew that if I didn't get right on it and finish it it would never get done and then I would have a newborn and be trying to sew bedding while also trying to care for the baby.
So, I got on it and low and behold, I actally finished it. I'm thinking that I may make some valences and such, but those can wait another week or so, the bedding it finished and the quilt is even quilted, so I am satisfied. This is probably the most productive that I have been in the last five months or so...

It's a Girl!

This morning I went in for our 20 week ultrasound and as it turns out we are going to have a little girl come May. According to my doctor everything looks great! I thought that I might share a few pictures.This is just a nice profile shot. She would never take her hand away from her face.
If you look where the arrows are pointing you can see her little fists and even count the fingers.
I put in two of these because I love them. I don't know why, but baby feet are always so cute!
When the tech took a good look at the feet she turned and asked me "Is your husband a big guy?" I guess that our little girl's feet seemed rather large to her and she was looking for an explanation.
This is just another nice profile shot of her head.
She wasn't cooperating well so when I go back in four weeks we will do another ultrasound. She kept her back to us so they couldn't get a good shot of the heart like they wanted. I'm excited about it though. I look forward to get another chance to see her again,
