Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Seriously, I hope this time to keep up with blogging again.  A lot has happened in the last 5 weeks and I've just had little time to sit and do anything for myself.

We moved into an apartment of our own again.  It feels so nice to have a place to call "home".  I have slowly unpacked, still have a few stray boxes here and there, and hung photos and tried to really make things cozy.  I will try and post pictures eventually.

I haven't sewn a damn thing in like 2 months.  I had no energy at all during my first trimester and since moving 2 weeks ago I have no desk to put my sewing machine on.  This of course will soon be solved as I have the Kaleidoscope quilt to finish, a baby quilt for Baby E, my moms quilt which she nags me about weekly, and I might be paid to make someone a quilt for Christmas.  So hopefully this will still be a somewhat sewing blog!

I have to stop and telling you that Aiden is sitting on the floor reading a book to himself, and he has heard it soo much he is able to say the right words "touch your nose" while on the right page.  It's beyond adorable.

Okay so the big news in the last 5 weeks is about Baby E.  We have had some great appointments, I have still not gained a single pound in 4 months, which makes me beyond thrilled.  I knew being heavy would pay off eventually!  My body seems to using my extra weight, which is healthy for me instead of gaining another 50lbs.  I'm sure before the baby comes I'll put on some weight, Lord knows I'm eating enough to be gaining, but my dr. and I are both very satisfied right now.

Hmm... gender?  Yes, we know.  We were all very shocked to learn we are having ANOTHER BOY!  Yep, another boy.  I thought for sure it was a girl, but if I'm honest here, my mother's instincts kept telling me it might be a boy.  I think I just ignored it.  :)  We are very excited though, and I am getting used to saying "my boys!".  It will make things a lot easier too, we have all of Aiden's clothes, which up until about 12 months, are in great condition.  Having the boys share a room will be fun, plus much easier to decorate!

Name?  We are still very much in love with the name Eli.  We have been considering different middle names, and think we finally agreed on one last week, but I am not ready to share it yet.  We love it, but my mom doesn't know the name yet so I can't post it here!  I don't know when we will spill the middle name, but it's kind of fun saying it to ourselves and keeping a little secret.  So no mom, don't bother to call me after you read this and ask what it is.  Hehe, in time we will share, but Kris and I are still "trying it out" and are having fun having it special just between us. 

Kris is still looking for a job, but has had a few good leads.  He applied to a cable company, much like who he worked for when Aiden was born.  He loved that job, and the pay was wonderful.  They are really busy and hiring a lot, they keep telling him they are interested in him but haven't been able to sit down and do more hiring yet.  To just be patient.  So fingers crossed.... it would be a prayer answered.

I think for now that is a long enough update for you all.  If there is anyone left waiting around to read my blog that is.  I hope to have my readers around still, I loved you all and will try to make it to your pages to say hi shortly.

Congrats on the new boy! We are expecting again, and I'm hoping for another boy. That first trimester is rough. Its hard to get anything done, let alone sewing. Glad you are feeling better!
