thought i'd share...


what I was working on yesterday. I've had this idea to do a "Birthday Box" for a while now...between mine and Graham's family and friends and stuff, it can be really hard to keep track of everyone's special day. So, the idea with this project was, there's a divider for each month where I can fill in people's bdays, anniversay's, etc, and then I can tuck cards into each month...so at the beginning of every month, I check out who I need to send cards to and.... Voila! Done. So just thought I'd share. You can see more pic's here if you want to get a closer look.

I didn't do too much today...I'm just noticing how big my stomach is getting!! I feel so huge today. Graham keeps telling me I look cute, but my tight jeans and short, tight shirts are telling me otherwise. The maternity clothes are still just a bit too big...so I'm still in that awkward "fat" stage. Oh, the joys of being pregnant. Sometimes I can't believe that I'm pregnant again...it's different the second time around in the sense that I'm so busy with Payton that I don't have much time to think or ponder about the pregnancy...whereas last time I had my books out every night, reading up on what stage I was at...I'm still totally excited, it's just different. It's going by so fast this time, though and I like that. Again, the anticipation with the first pregnancy just seemed to drag it out forever, and now I'm feeling like the baby will be here in no time. I have my ultrasound on the 22nd, so I'm so so excited to find out what we're having. For some reason I just feel like it's a girl...I'll honestly be surprised if it's a boy. Guesses, anyone? My sister Niki has always been right with my sister and I about what we're having...let me know what you think, Nik! I'll be thrilled with either, but a girl would be a whole lot cheaper considering the huge rubbermaid containers we have full of girls baby clothes (literally). AAaahhh! So, if you feel like takin' a guess on whether we're having a boy or girl, I'd love to hear them!!

This is so cute Tal! I love the colors...you did an awesome job. As far as my guess...ummm...I think I would have to say a girl, but I'm never good at guessing. Either way we are just going to love it so much!
