So have you noticed I haven't posted for a couple weeks. Life has been busy. I had to work last week, and when I have to work 5 days a week, I don't get much else accomplished. This week my oldest was home sick a couple days and I have been trying to catch up on house stuff - you know how that goes. But being 9 months pregnant on top of that - I admit, I just run out of steam.
Today I am 37 weeks, which is considered full term. Guess little guy is welcome to come any time now. I have been doing laundry, packing my hospital bag and making other preparations so I think I'm getting closer to being ready. My mom arrives in town on Tuesday - so we're looking forward to having her visit for a few weeks.
One simple project I wanted to share was this laugh sign. I picked it up at the Dollar Tree last year and it was originally unfinished. I spray painted it black. But then changed it up and painted it white. This time I decided to go red.
My son's room (which will now be the baby room) has red accents, so this was perfect.
I think I want to add a few more red touches as well.
Maybe some red frames here and there - we'll see what I come up with.
Okay, I've seen these cute tie onesies all over the place - but I wanted to try my hand at making some. Of course, this 15 minute project turned into a 5 hour project because my sewing machine wasn't cooperating one bit - come to find out the bobbin was wound too loose and was messing up my tension (only took me 5 hours to figure that out).
I bought the materials at Walmart, including the onesies. Just as an FYI, I checked out both the Gerber onesies and the Baby of Mine (Walmart brand) and liked the thickness of the Baby of Mine much more, so bought a pack of 3.
I ended up making them all the same. I thought they turned out pretty good for my first attempt. Especially, since I pull out my sewing machine about once a year to use. I may just have to make a few more. I plan to give these away as gifts.
So at least once a year (usually around their birthday), I try to have pictures professionally taken of my boys. Well my oldest had his birthday a couple months ago and I still hadn't gotten his yearly picture taken. I finally called up my cousin and set up a photo shoot. She did an amazing job. Just look how adorable these pictures are.
This is just a sampling of the photos she took. So if you need a little photo shoot and are in the Salt Lake City area, but sure to check out Annie Lee Photography. She does a fantastic job!
