A New Addition!

My blogging has been on the back burner for the past 3 months because I've been busy working on an even sweeter project, the best addition we've ever made to our home....

We are expanding our family by two feet!  Meet Baby Lo!

10 Week Ultrasound Photo

Lilo, our nickname for "Little Lo," will be here in mid-September.  We are praising God for the blessing of this sweet life!

You may remember me sharing in past posts that 13 is a special number for our family.  Truman was born on December 13.  I was born on April 13.  We were married on May 13.  And Lilo is due on September 13!  We'll see if baby Lo carries on the tradition!

I have had a rough first trimester, so my days have been filled with hour upon hour of resting on the couch, naps, Sprite, and watching every show on On Demand and our DVR.  My amazing husband has been busy doing all of our grocery shopping, preparing dinner, doing laundry, and cleaning, while I watch from the couch.  But, we are so incredibly thankful for this little life and know that this season of sickness is a small price to pay for a lifetime as parents!

I am 14.5 weeks pregnant and hoping that the 2nd trimester will bring less time on the couch and more time in my craft room!  I have a whole stack of fabric waiting to be turned into baby gifts for friends who have welcomed new additions to their families, and ideas for a baby scrapbook for Lilo swimming around in my head.  I will continue to share pregnancy news and photos of my growing belly, but I hope to be sharing new craft projects soon too!  And of course, I'm sure there will be some nursery photos in the coming months as we prepare for Lilo's arrival!
