I'm a self taught crotcheter. I youtubed some videos and learned that way. I also just got a sewing machine around thanksgiving-a hand me down and dabble around with making things. My next two projects are hooded towels and pillow cases. Then I plan on doing tagged mink blankets.... My sister just had her 2nd baby- a girl- Harper Catherine- 8lbs13oz. So cute!! Really makes me super excited for this little one- I can't wait to find out what we are having so we can settle on a name. I'm really starting to like Pagie for a girl but DH is still stuck on Alex....lol
Nov FET- BFP!!
Olivia Evelyn Teodora 7/16/11 9lbs 10oz, 20in
April FET - BFP
My DECEMBER 2013 SNOWBUNNY is a GIRL!
Jules, I always loved the name Olivia Paige...but the hubs doesn't like it...or at least much prefers the other names we have picked out....sooooo if this is a girl like we are hoping, it is Aarilyn Belle. DH loves Aarilyn because it is after him...Aaron...Aarilyn... The next fave girl name is Abigail Grace. I always regret telling people ahead of time though just because someone always spends the entire rest of the pregnancy trying to change my mind. With DS my mom wanted me to change it from Braxton Michael to Michael Braxton. With this one she wants me to change the middle name to Isabella instead of Belle....and I'm not doing it. lol I guess I can be stubborn after all. hehe
Like I said, I going to **try**
I don't know why but I find it strange to begin calling the baby by a real name before it's born. I suppose I always wonder what if you call it a certain name for 4 months and then when it arrives the name just doesn't fit.... So I'm going to have a short list of 2 or 3 names but after we find out the gender then will refer to it as BabyGirl or BabyBoy.
I've learned a lot of patience since DH refused to let us tell anyone until the last couple weeks. Even our families only found out at 10/11 weeks.
I cant wait to find out if its a boy or girl. Then can fgure out which of my names I get to use. Im not telling my kids or my mom until after the scan. Cant tell the kids till she knows or tell them at the same time. My brothers kids dont know either yet. Should be interesting. Im trying to work up the nerve to tell my boss but am wanting to do it when the female lawyer is there also not just my actual boss. Im paranoid about telling him.....
Roxi! Lol Patience? What's that??? My DH couldn't even wait until Mother's Day to tell everyone he knew...lol The plan was to tell our parents on Mother's Day at 6-7wks and then everyone else. I think it ended up being everyone else knew, then we told our parents on Mother's Day. Haha
And we do name baby ahead of time. I'm already referring to this one by name because I'm positive I know what it is...now lets just hope I'm right b/c otherwise I'm going to have a hard time rewiring my brain! My DS and DH are so sure though...sooooo....I'm hoping we find out sooner rather than later...I found out at 13 wks with DS....soooo, maybe at the next 2 appts on Monday????? I know, wishful thinking!! I'm just setting myself up for disappointment.
Hey girls.. Sorry I haven't posted... I have been busy in the house and starting work again.
I went back to my old job at the pool but as a cashier instead of lifeguard/manager.
I went to work on Wednesday and am totally regretting it. I thought it would be really good for me but I am just completely disappointed and stressed. and I came home just simply exhausted.
I've been kinda down. My mom and i have a terrible relationship but I figured I woudl try to work on it and have been trying to hang out with her all week. So we made plans on Wednesday. She totally ditched me to "drive my brother to the dr" which is fine.. except that the appointment wasn't until way later in the day. and then we rescheduled today and she bailed on me again because "it's too hot" REALLY?! Whatever. I have cried over it a ton and I totally called her out today and I just don't even feel like talking to her at all anymore. I told her not to expect me to try to spend time with her again.
To Join into your convo:
I can't wait until we know for sure that it's a boy. I am almost positive it is but that's alright. lol. Our boy name is Daxton Dash Sha********** I am not going to put the whole last name but that way you get the idea. our girl name is yet to be determined but hopefully I don't' have to worry about it because DH and I aren't really agreeing on a name.
My friend who just turned 20 weeks- She had an ultrasound at 16 weeks in which they told her it was a girl. She just got another ultrasound and found it it's actually a boy! haha. I told her before she left that she's probably gonna find out it's a boy. I was totally right. It's because she said that she's always thought she was going to have a boy and couldn't imagine having a girl and when she found out it was a girl she was uber surprised. I had a feeling that it was going to be a boy. lol.
DS kissed my belly the other day and told me he was kissing the baby. Then today he told me he wanted to kiss the baby and so I moved my blanket and he kissed my tummy and said, "I love the baby." SOOO SWEET. I love my son. He is sooo excited to have a brother/sister. I really pray that nothing with go wrong. I don't want to break his dear little heart. Or mine :/
Can I just say that today I am feeling very very lazy... I am feeling sick and exhausted... I don't want to do anything but crawl back in to bed. I'm feeling bored to. blah on today.
on another note: DS has tripped going down the stairs twice... He is so clumsy (just like me). But it worries me... I don't want him hurt!
