I think this is cute and funny but that might be because I am his mom...

Sewing Projects

I have recently taken up sewing (I know, I am surprised too) and done a few projects over the last several weeks. Here is what I have done:

This is a diaper and wipes case. No woman likes diapers floating in her bag so this is a case to hold the diapers and the wipes. I think it's pretty cute. I have made several of these for friends and sisters.

We recently moved into a new apartment and our long curtains weren't usable so I hacked them off and hemmed them to a new length. Not a tough project but, they turned out nicely!

This was my latest and hardest project. I have the worst maternity skirts so I decided to make my own! I found this super awesome pattern here, it has over 30 pictures to help you see what you are doing step by step. I knocked it out in about 3 hours (I spent an hour trying to thread the bobbin.... don't ask.... I am STILL mad about it!) and was able to wear it to church the next day! Next time I will make a smaller size so it doesn't have to be as long. Hooray for fun projects!

Sweet fire extinguisher.

A Day at the Zoo

Idaho Falls has a really cute zoo. It's the perfect size, you can see the whole zoo in about an hour and a half and to be honest, it only has the animals that matter (lion, monkeys, bears etc.) which makes it easy to navigate because you don't have to avoid the weird exhibits. Colton enjoyed running around and seeing new all the animals although I don't think he really knew what was going on. We will certainly be going down there more often seeing as it was only ten bucks for all of us!

Colton's One Year Pictures!

My sister, Whitni, did Colton's one year pictures while I was in Seattle. She did an AMAZING job but to see the pictures, you will have to go to her photography blog. Click here and be sure to click on her blog entrance. Colton should be the first post, if not the second. Let her know what an amazing job she did!

Uh Oh

Parker plays pick up (basketball) at the school several times a week. He made it through the entire semester injury free until this:

 HE GOT THIS THE WEEK OF FINALS! He was hurtin' and gimpin' around campus. Not to mention the fact that we moved the week after this happened. Poor guy. He went for a lay up and some rookie undercut him.

It's a boy!

Only two of you guessed right! I had my ultrasound today and everything looked perfect! The little dude is healthy and growing just as he should. The doctor said I am right on track for my due date and I will probably be delivering some time around December 15th. I am a planned C-Section (Colton was also a C-Section) which is good because this baby is breach! He has plenty of time to turn around but the doctor said that it's not all that common for them to turn after 20 weeks. Parker and I are super happy about having another boy, although I am feeling seriously out-numbered! We are working on a name, we have a couple we like. I will post once we solidify the name we want. I have a couple ultra sound pictures that I will try to post, the lady doing the ultra sound got a really cute profile (I don't think ultra sound pictures are that cute, so it must look pretty good). Things have been really crazy around here because we moved apartments and I don't have access to internet quite yet. With all that aside, we are all really excited for baby boy number two!
