Today's Project

I love how the trees here dapple the light. It is so lovely.

This idea for a large bulletin board is just what I've been looking for! I love google. I had been looking on craigslist for a used one, but they were still too expensive or too far away. The camouflage fabric is so not us, but we'll head to the fabric store and find something.

I wasn't really planning to start more directed learning with Pumpkin until the baby arrives and we settle into life with that, but he is more than ready RIGHT NOW and wants to learn everything TODAY. :) I'll post pictures when I get it all together. (Ok, when will that happen? Luckily, I am just talking about the bulletin board.)

I finished up all my sewing of baby things and used up all my flannel. I made about 10 washcloths, 6 cloth diaper burp rags with flannel decor, and a bunch of all flannel burp cloths, and three blankets. LOVING the softness of it all. So does Dumpling. He's got a little square of the flannel he loves to rub on his cheek and play with. Of course, then Pumpkin wanted one. He's not as tactile as Dumpling so his square has become a car cover for the lego convertible he made.

Tomorrow night is my home visit with the midwives. I was hoping to have the nursery all set up, but it hasn't worked out. The crib I was going to borrow ended up not happening. Back to craigslist! I should be able to get most of the things I am planning to borrow when my Bunco group comes over next week. Crazy, I know, but I will keep it all realllly simple.

Plus, I may get company tomorrow as my Dad and Stepmom may be coming through town to see us. I hope so! I miss them.

And, I was able to make plans to meet up with Janna next Friday. We haven't been able to get together due to moves and babies. Her having a baby while I was moving and now her moving while I am having a baby just have complicated it all. I am looking forward to meeting her little Beth.

Pumpkin and Dumpling are finishing up breakfast as I type. Pumpkin asked for some Banana Dippers. I had to ask what he was talking about. He said, "Get some yogurt and honey and raisins and cut up some bananas and you dip it." No problem, we've got all that. So I mixed it all up for he and he is over there, "Mmm! That's good stuff!" Sounds good to me.

Now here is Dumpling wanting some. I love that they love good food. Reality check- Pumpkin ate his while wearing the Krispy Kreme hat he got yesterday from the donut store. It's not all perfect. ;)

Thank you for the effort that you put into this blog.

Hi Kimberly,
How much longer till the sweet little one comes? I have been praying for you. I love all the sewing you have been doing.
Have a wonderful day.
