Story Time Chapter2

Here we are at the hospital waiting to be induced.  For the time being I was happy, but soon after that in pain, and after enduring pain, I didn't feel anything, thanks to the handy dandy epidural :)
I was excited and nervous for her arrival!  Monday we had a good time with Rock and Key, our last time being a family of four.  A memorable time of us all making funny laughs together to complete silliness.

I'll soon post pictures of my little giant.

Rock Writing

As most kids do, my Rock collects sticks, pine cones, and rocks (no pun intended).  And as most parents, you never know what to do with them, but throw them away or set them aside somewhere.  I got a great idea from apartmenttherapy (or ohdeedoh) but couldn't find the old post (sorry).  Well, Rock and I began writing on his rock collection and displayed it in a class jar in the kids bathroom.  I'm no artist but we were both pleased with the outcome :)

Still feeling contractions but they're not strong enough, but uncomfortable and not consistent, but has been happening since Saturday afternoon.  Hopefully this little girl will decide to come out, but for now she's unpredictable!

In Honor...

of our little pigeon friends.  Lately we've been pleasantly surprised by two pigeons visiting our balcony.  It's interesting, especially here in our LA multi-floor apartment!  My son Rock has been collecting sticks since he could walk.  Some of the sticks were pretty impressive and made me think of a bird mobil or some kind of birdie ornament for our home.  The birdies were made of felt, hand sewn, and attached to sting, the rest is pretty self explanatory.  I probably should use invisible fisherman string but haven't gotten around to.
Come back birdie friends so we can hear your pigeon sounds that we all like :)

38 Weeks

I really can't wait til Story comes out.  The aches and pain are not fun, but they really push me not to complain.  I was asked on Tuesday, while having lunch with my mother and sister, if I was having twins.  I kindly said "no" but inside I was sad:(  The bright side...At least Story is safe and swimming around just fine in her grand pool.  
According to my doctor, I have double the amniotic fluid that most women have at this stage-- (sigh) ohhhh boy!

Quilted Bib

It's no secret that there's been much fuss and love of anything quilted.  Maybe it's the year of the quilt :)  Anyways, with that mind, I made Story a quilted bib (if she decides to come out).  I hope to make another for my Story, in hope that these little gifts awaiting her will encourage contractions!
Story, please come out from your olympic size pool.

Bunting makes things look prettier.  I made this little one for my daughter's room a few months back, and it really adds to the character of the room.  It's easy to do, and not to mention a cheap decor.  Simply cutting triangles (or any shape you'd like), sewing inside out (then reverse once sides are sewed), and then sewing some binding (I used quilt binding, can be found at any craft/sew store)...then whallah!  A cute banner :)
Have a great Good Friday and Easter Sunday!  In case you ever wondered why Jesus Christ dying is important to some, or just want to be more informed in your knowledge of others and religion, here is a short explanation.
