Lotsa Pictures

First, my silly Sarah. She has become such a clown, and honestly, she is ME! In almost every way, she is an exact replica of me, except she doesn't look just like me. Her personality and body structure though, yeah...

Some funny at home pics...

(notice her 'jewelry'- her bracelet is a hair elastic, and her ring is one of those tiny ouchless hair rubber bands)


Her birthday party at the park last Saturday...



Below, Sarah with her sisters and cousin James.

Presents...and money...love the dirty faces.




I made these curtains out of a set of full size sheets this morning. Super easy! Since the sides and bottom were already hemmed, all I had to do was cut it in half and make a pocket for the rod. With the fitted sheet, I ripped out the elastic, then cut it in half, trimmed the curved sides off, hemmed one side and made a pocket for the other. The design is pink, purple, blue and green polka dots on a white background. Lots of options for future decor with those colors :)

How it looked before:


And a new shot of me. I'm 17 weeks along now, and more than likely my belly will look this way for at least another month or two. My uterus is right at my belly button- I can feel something firm there now :) Last night I got my first good kick from baby, which I am very grateful for, because I've had a miscarriage before. It's very comforting to get some 'feedback' from baby...

I'm really not skilled at taking pictures...sorry.

Thanks for sharing the pictures- your girls are precious. The sewing is going great! In fact, I'm just now taking a break from sewing your bag to eat something...I was feeling a bit faint. It's turning out cute. ;-) Can't wait to hear what you're having (if you share)...a boy would be nice. Even though I'm sure you wouldn't mind another girl. Boys are allot of fun though...I have 'some' experience with them. Have a great day!
