She's here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Don't be fooled by the blue blankets...she's all girl). :)

Well, actually she's been here since 8:20 this morning. :)

Just finally got around to posting about it on here.

I've made a habit of not announcing names on my blog, so if you aren't family or friend, I'm sorry you won't have her name. Her initials are C.D. however, so you can make up your own name for her. :)

But she's beautiful; all 9 lbs 9 oz of her. :) Much smaller than the previous 11.5 lb baby I had. She actually doesn't even look 9 lbs. I don't know where she's hiding it. :)

21.5 inches long and some dark hair, mostly on the back of the head.

Such a blessing, our beautiful little girl.

Until next time...JenT

Our oldest son turned 11 on the 19th. I didn't get a chance to post about it until now.

He had a yummy chocolate cake that his older sister decorated with an assortment of Hershey's Kisses and Hugs. It was very good.

He then went skydiving.

Yep - skydiving.

But... was indoors.

He had a lot of fun.

He also got Hardy Boys books as gifts. He really likes them.

We are very blessed to have him in our family and as our first son.

Until next time...

another cloth diaper giveaway that I've entered

So pretty much all that consumes my thoughts right now is this baby (that is stubbornly waiting until he/she is good and ready to come).

Meanwhile, I'm trying to get some things ready. Since I use cloth diapers, I'm entering giveaways almost every time I find one.

Some of them offer more entries if you blog about them, and that is what I'm doing here.

This giveaway

SoftBums Echo Review and #Giveaway! US only! 3/13

is going on over at GreeN MaM-a JaM-a.

If you are into cloth diaper giveaways, get over there and enter real soon.

With as many giveaways as I've entered, I just hope I win something!

Until next time...

no baby yet

Still no sign of this baby coming.

My due date was the 10th regardless of what the counter on the side says.

No labor.

Maybe I need to go jogging? :P

Until next time...

what I've been doing while waiting for the baby

In trying to distract myself from this never-ending pregnancy, I've been doing some sewing lately. Here's a recent project.

M.D.'s new skirt. It looks like culottes in the picture, but it's not. It was done from this pattern; Simplicity New Look #6944. You can get it at Wal-Mart and probably Joann, and this site has it also.

It's a cute skirt, not too difficult to make, and she likes the full style. I also plan to make one for D.R. (second daughter), but hers will be in yellow. I don't know if I'll get it done before the baby comes, but I will get to it sometime. :)

I've also sewn up a couple of skirts each for the two younger girls; one set in pink, one set in blue. I may upload some pictures of those on here sometime. And some jumpers that I'm thinking of selling on etsy or somewhere. It was some I had cut out a couple of years ago and so now they don't fit anyone. I've been able to do 3 so far and still have about 5 cut out ready to stitch together.

I really dislike the cutting out part of sewing, so I usually do a lot all at once, but then sometimes I don't get around to the actually sewing part. Oh well, at least now I have some sewing to do...the fun part. :)

Until next time...

cloth diaper giveaway at So Easy Being Green

Baby time is getting closer.

I've started looking at more cloth diapers. And today I found a fantastic giveaway over at So Easy Being Green.

There are a few giveaways going on over there, but this one is the Grand Prize Giveaway. Instead of just one or two diapers, there are 3 diapers, a wrap, and some wipes. Grand Prize, indeed!!

I'm entering in the hopes that I win. And yes, I do get extra entries for blogging about it. But this also gives you a chance too.

Until next time...
