I've been a little busy...

And this little munchkin is the reason why. It's been crazy busy around my house trying to get on a schedule/routine with the new little one, going back to work and buying a house. Max was born on Feb. 16 and it's been one crazy ride since...but I wouldn't change a thing! :) Here are a few pics of my little one. He's growing so fast and everyone said he would, but I didn't expect it to be that fast! These pictures are within weeks of each other. The last pic is the most recent one...he's 11wks already!

We have finally moved into our new house. Being a first time home buyer is real exciting and I'm just glad that we have a new place for Max to grow up. We are still unpacking boxes, but I know it will all come together soon enough...I just need to be patient...and that's hard to do! LOL!!!

Well thanks for stopping by! Once I get all my crafting goodies unpacked, I hope to be crafting soon. I really, really miss it and hope that in a few weeks I can get back into the's been way too long! :)

Baby Shower Invites

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a fab Monday so far. I've been under the weather since Friday with a horrible constant, nagging cough and sore throat. I decided to stay home today to get some more rest in so hopefully I won't be sick during the Thanksgiving Holidays. I have a card today...well actually an invitation. My sister and I are working on my baby shower invites, and I hope we can get them all done by the end of this week...keeping my fingers crossed!!! Both of my baby showers are in January. My sister and SIL's are throwing my first shower and my Aunts are throwing the second one. I can't wait to see all my friends and family that I haven't seen since I've been pregnant.

Anywho, here is the invite (please excuse the poor quality of the pic...I'm so out of practice.) Please tell me what you think of the invite. I like it, but I'm not sure I like it 100%. The sketch is from Niki Estes of "My Paper Creations." I fell in love with the simplicity of it. I really like the different patterns of paper going on here, but I'm not sure I like the words Baby Shower stamped on the bottom. Should I add a tag or something with those words. Does it need something else?!?! What do you think?!?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Well I hope everyone enjoys their afternoon. I'm headed back to bed for a nap! :) Hope to hear your suggestions soon! :) And if I'm not back before Thanksgiving, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by! ~ Jenn

Hello, Hello...

Just stopping by to say HI! :) I was so ready for the weekend to get here, this week was so slow for me. It's a beautiful weekend in Houston, the sun is shining and the weather is cool...what more could you ask for?!?!

We spent the morning watching my nephew play soccer and then we did some shopping. I bought my first couple pair of maternity pants today. Up until now I was able to still wear all my other clothes...which I thought was great! But I'm getting to the point where my jeans are fitting a little snug and I needed some more breathing room. When I tried them on it was like heaven...I can breathe...LOL!!! :) I am now 23 weeks and this past week we had another doctor's appt. Everything went well, the baby is now 1lb. 5oz. and seems to be right on track!!! If there was ever any doubt that I thought well maybe they got it wrong, maybe we are having a girl...I was wrong. We got some great pics of him showing the world that he truly is a boy...LOL!!! :)

Well I'm off to spend the afternoon with some girlfriends and then I'll be coming back home to clean out some of my scrapbooking things. I'm getting ready to sell some of my stamps that I now longer use or haven't used in a while. I've got to get rid of some of this clutter before the little one arrives. I figure if I haven't used it in a year, then maybe, just maybe it's time to let it go!!! :)

Well I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday afternoon! :) Thanks for stopping by and take care! :) ~ Jenn

Hello Again!!!

Edited to Add: Some of you have asked when my due date is. It is Feb. 12th.

Ok, so I said in my last post that as soon as we found out what we were having I would let you know. We found out this morning that we are having a BOY!!! :) Now it's time for us to start thinking about boy names, because all we had was girl names picked out...LOL!!! :)

I'm just so glad we know now...let the shopping begin! LOL!!!

Well I hope everyone is enjoying their afternoon! :) Thanks for stopping by and take care! :) ~ Jenn

Long Time No Post

Hi there! I hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to give an update and let everyone know how things are going. Everything is moving along just fine with the baby. Last Friday I was 20 I'm halfway through! YAY!!! :) Very soon we are going to find out what we are having and I absolutely can't wait!!! I'm not gonna say the date on here (I know my sister reads this...LOL!) because I've been keeping it a surprise and I haven't told anyone what date we are finding out, but it will be very, very soon! ;) And as soon as I find out I will let all of you know! :) I've also been contemplating about whether to come back to work once the baby is born. I love my job, but I feel like I won't know until the baby is here. I'm not too keen about putting my baby in daycare at 6wks. old either. Trust me, I have nothing against daycare. My parents ran a daycare business for 20 something years, so I know a lot about it. But I would rather wait til the baby was a year before I did that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

It seems like every weekend we have something to's been crazy. How 'bout ya'll? Between my nephew's soccer games, birthday dinners and shopping for baby furniture, my weekends are just jammed packed. I keep looking over at my scrapping table, still wanting and needing to ink up some of my new stamps and I haven't. I really hope to soon! :) This weekend my brother is having a garage sale (one of those that the whole neighborhood participates in) and so I've decided to help out with that. Plus we are cleaning out our spare bedroom for the baby so I know that I need to get rid of some things that are there collecting dust! Anywho, enough of me rambling. I just wanted to say hi and let everyone know what's been going on with me.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!!! Thanks for stopping by and take care! ~Jenn

Time For An Update

Hey there! Well I figured it's about time to give you guys an update on how things are going.

I am doing absolutely terrific!!! Today I am 13wks and I am so glad to be over that first trimester hump. Now I feel like I can relax a little. Though the first trimester did come with some complications. I was on bed rest for a couple a weeks, which by the way was torturous. But I've been back at work for about 4wks now and everything is fine with the baby and I. I'm still feeling quite tired but I'm hoping that will all go away soon. There's so much that I want to do, but just don't have the energy.

I've had many ultrasounds since I had to stay with the fertility clinic till I was 10wks. But Tuesday was the first time that we had actually heard the baby's heartbeat and it was so AWESOME!!! :) My due date is Feb. 12, 2010 and in 8wks. we will find out if we are having a boy or girl. I absolutely cannot wait till we find out...I really want a little girl! :) My husband wants a boy for fear of having a girl first will make him too soft! LOL!!! :) But it really doesn't matter as long as our baby is healthy!!! :)

Thanks to everyone who left me comments on my last post. You all are so very, very sweet! :) Hope to get back to doing something crafty soon!!! I just placed a Bella order so hoping those will get my mojo flowing! :)

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by! :) Take Care ~ Jenn
