Week 18.

We are getting closer and closer to finding out what this little bundle I'm carrying is! I am so excited. I'm going to start off the new year with plenty to do. I feel like I've just been on pause (baby wise, everything else is in fast forward) until I know what this kid is.

In January I am going to clean up my craft room and get it more situated, then start turning that space into a baby zone! I already have a ton of clothes from a local ladies garage sale (both boy and girl!) so I will pull out the appropriate stuff and start washing and hanging stuff in the closet! Another major project is making the crib. The plan is right now to make a crib for the little one. It will be able to be used for all the future kids as well!

The crib goes well with my log living room. 

 This is kinda what we are looking at. We think it will be cool to have a crib made for the baby that is made from cedar from his/her Gramps place. It will be a lot of work as well, but a labor of love!

 I will also attempt to make bedding. Probably wrangle my mom to help. There are so many tutorials out there that I think it won't be too hard. Not sure exactly what I'm going to do bedding wise, but will figure it out along the way. Sometimes Pinterest can be a blessing and a curse. So many ideas and options. What to do... what to do???

As far a baby progress... We are the size of a bell pepper now! About 5 1/2 inches from head to bottom! Muscle flexing is going on and plenty of growth spurts. I feel like I'm really starting to grow as well. 

I still feel wonderful! I am so blessed and definitely don't take it for granted. Most the time I don't even remember I am pregnant, until I look into the mirror!

Hopefully my chalkboards will improve with time. I just kinda quickly do them. 

Hope everyone has a great week!
