First, thank you for the well wishes for our future arrival. I can't begin to express our excitement for this.
In many ways this baby comes to a surprise for us. We wanted to grow our little family, but considering it took me YEARS to get Livy, I wasn't expecting anything to happen so soon. It just tells me that it was time.
I have had so many people ask already when I am due and I wish that I had an answer. I figure sometime around the end of October but I could be off. I will have my first prenatal visit in a few weeks.
Livy is doing well, as well as 2 year old can. She will talk about the baby in my tummy but I don't think she fully understands the change that will take place. I have confidence though that this will be a fairly easy transition for her. She is such an easy-going child and with anything that I have thought would be difficult was a breeze. For example breaking the bottle and moving her to a big-girl bed.
I do want to state the I honestly was sick last week with the full fledged influenza, it was nothing to do with the baby. So far I haven't felt all that different expect for being a little extra tired. I have felt a little "different" for about 5 weeks and that is what lead me to take a home pregnancy test.
I look forward to future updates about my new "little bean!"

Since moving (3 1/2 months ago), I have been sick at least 6 or 7 times. I am sick again and I haven't felt this sick in so long.
I have so much that I want to blog about, but it must wait. I am too light-headed to spend much time in front of the computer. I do have some review commitments that I will proceed with as planned.
So until then, I will be thinking of all the fun projects and things I could be doing rather than nearly dying on the couch.

For about the past week, Livy has slept with her special St. Patrick's Day pillow. She refers to it as her green hat Patrick pillow. I am looking forward to the other holiday pillowcases that I have created for her.
A few Irish decorations in my holiday nook. I can't believe how hard it is to find non-tacky St. Patrick's day decor items. I have been looking endlessly for something large and tall to sit on my shelf next to the plate. Perhaps next year.
When I was growing up, I loved going to people's houses that decorated for the holidays. There certainly is not an option to decorate the entire house for every holiday so that is how my nook came to be. I have the one area that I will decorate for the holidays. My only problem that I have run into, what do I do in months like May, June and August when there are no holidays?

This weekend I was finally able to work on this long over-due project. I had major sewing machine problems along the way, but ended up with two darling pillowcases for Livy's bed. And more to come as the fabric comes available.
I hope that this simple project will be something that Livy looks forward to in the future. I want the holidays to be special for her and something that she looks forward to.
I was considering making a tutorial for this. Is there anyone interested?
