33 weeks.

.
Precious baby,
This week marks your thirty-third week of life, and growth. 
The last weeks I have been pleasantly surprised by your increased movement, and "busyness." 
Though sometimes painful, it is the best feeling in the world...
a reminder of your health and liveliness. 
We are beyond excited to meet you, and ready for your arrival.
We can't wait to become a family of four. 
You have us curious and anxious about....
... How will you arrive?
Are you a sweet little girl, or boy? ...
... Will you take after your big brother in size?
Who will you look like?... 
  .
No matter what, we love you.
Our verse for you is 1 Samuel 1:27...
 'I prayed for this Child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked'.
 ...
We love you little one, and are overwhelmed with gratitude to God,
 for hearing and answering our prayer.
..
You are our little miracle.

All of my love,
 your Mama

Herb Planter


Like most, since Spring has sprung, I've been itchin' to get my hands and toes in the soil .  Last week we tilled the garden, and now are waiting until May to plant. [who wants to worry about frost?]  To help dull the anticipation, I planted several herbs the other day.   - Normally, my herbs get put in the garden, but with baby coming, I'd prefer them closer to the house this year.  Using a wood planter, from a friend's wedding [thanks Christy!] I was able to do just that!  Functional, yet decorative, the planter has found a home on the front porch!







Using cardstock and picks, it's easy to create personalized markers/ flags.
To make the picks waterproof, I want to cover them in contact-paper yet!

Where do your herbs get planted??

A Clothesline Picnic

.
Sometimes you just have to make watcha'got work, especially with little ones.  When they ask for a spontaneous "picnic in a tent", and you don't have one, you make one!   A clothesline & old quilt actually work splendidly, and is ten-times the fun than the real deal!











These little ones are my constant reminder to imagine, and be spontaneous!


Happy Thursday!
