Paper Crafts


Thanks, Meg for the paper pumpkin idea.  We're really into cutting strips of paper these days.  I knew it would be a hit.

The paper chain has now become an obsession.  It is long enough to run the length of our house.  And, I don't think he's quite finished.  This makes me happy.  It takes a lot of time to cut and staple that much paper.  Time that he's not destroying something else.


Drawing with chalk was also a big hit today. I forget that it's the simple things.  {Note the bungee cord around his neck.  Never know when you'll need one, ya know.}

Best of all, a picture of the babe.  At my appointment on Monday, I found out I'm 10 weeks along which makes the due date May 10.  The doctor said the chances for a miscarriage at this point are slim.

What's really fun is that both of my sister in-laws are pregnant.  This means my mother-in-love has only hormonal daughters-in-loves.  Lauren is due any day.  Jen is due a week before me.  We're all having our second baby.  The cousins will have a ball, won't they?!

And, yesterday a friend called to tell me she's due a week before me, too!  Crazy thing because she was on the pill (didn't miss a one) and her man was scheduled for the *snip snip* on Friday.

God has a funny sense of humor, doesn't he?

Very cool! Hearing Little Man's heartbeat for the first time (just two days before Christmas!) was the best thing I have ever heard after all of our heartache. I hope you're taking it easy!
