4 more weeks...

I can't believe that our little Boy's due date is just 4 weeks away!

We are getting very excited (and nervous!) and can't wait to see who he looks like and to hold him in our arms.

Now... we just need to decide on a name!

Thor at the Lake

I really do think Thor lives THE life.  What's better than spending the day at the lake swimming and boating?  Not much, that's for sure.

he LOVES rolling in the sand after swimming
so handsome
looking regal on the back of the boat
a little hard to balance a canoe with an 85lb dog in the middle

Mobile for Baby S.

We are trying very hard not to spend a ton of cash getting ready for Baby S., and I knew I wanted to make a mobile for his room.  So when I stumbled upon this the other day, I knew it would be perfect for his room! I've made some of the birds already with some scraps of fabric and Spool's super easy pattern.  I'll post some photos when it's all done.  I can't wait to see it hanging in his room!

Baby S. at Fenway

Our little boy is well on his way of understanding the importance of being a Red Sox fan.  He already has Sox books, onesies, and the coolest little hat.  We wanted to expose him to the wonders of Fenway as soon as possible, so we went to a game a few weeks ago and are going to another one in a few more weeks.  There aren't too many things that beat watching the Sox win at Fenway.

The River

Since we live so very close to the Pemigewasset River, we spend a good number of days in the summer swimming and floating on the river.  It's peaceful, quiet, beautiful, and such a perfect way to spend a sunny, summer day.

Blue Eyed Wonders

Thanks to some urging from friends and family I've finally opened an etsy shop to try and sell some of my fabric creations.  Bags, quilts, blankets, and some other things along the way.

Thanks to Mr. KBell for developing my rad logo and helping with all my graphics for the shop.

Please visit my shop and let me know if you have any questions or comments.  I'd love to hear from you!

Baby S.

I can't believe that we only have about 9 more weeks until Baby S. makes his arrival!  When you say it like that, it seems like such a short amount of time!!  Before I was pregnant, I never really understood why people talked in "weeks" instead of months.  I never thought I would be one to do that, but now I get it.  Each week is such a change in growth that it's much easier to understand how the baby is developing week by week, rather than month by month.  

My mom and sister hosted such a nice shower for me a few weeks ago.  It was actually really overwhelming to have so many people there from all aspects of my life... childhood, high school, college, now...  it was awesome.  Everyone was SO incredibly generous and I know Baby S. is loved already.

We decided to keep the baby's room green and are not doing a "theme".  We're going to use some great fabric from IKEA for the curtains, some DIY artwork, and passed down things from when J and I were kids.  We put the crib together the other day and love it!  I really think the drawer underneath will be so useful in keeping sheets and such in.  Handy when changing wet sheets in the middle of the night!

We still have a lot to do.  I'd love to have the room basically set before school starts, but not sure if that's going to happen.  We'll see!

An update

It has been well over a year since I last posted on my blog.
I'm not exactly sure why it's been so long.  There were many days where I came to write something and then decided not to, for whatever reason.

But, I'm back... and hoping posts will happen on a more regular basis.

Some things I've seen through my blue eyes since last year...

Summer 2010

We went to Europe for an absolutely amazing honeymoon.  I don't even know the words to use to describe the time we had there.  Three weeks traveling through Italy, Switerzerland, and France.  Oh, how I wish we were back there eating fresh and delicious food and drinking wine!

Thor came to live with us.  We picked him up when he was 8 weeks old and we instantly fell in love.  He's grown a lot since last summer... 85lbs now!  He makes us smile every day.

And the BIGGEST news is that we're expecting!  A little baby boy will join us in October and we couldn't be more excited (and a little nervous) to be parents!
