I'm in the middle of a lot of things over here.
I'm in the middle of changes.
(my dad will probably be freaked out by this pic... he's absolutely certain that I am actually shrinking.)
Not just physical ones, but every kind you can imagine.
I'm going from 1 daughter to 2 daughters.
Pregnant to delivering.
Sure to unsure.
Unsure to sure.
And then sure to unsure again...
And I cry about everything.
I shouldn't say everything. I cry about unimportant things.
And Disney movies.
And any little anything that makes no sense to cry about.
FYI: I am so not a crier... so I find this whole crying thing very ridiculous.
At least Parenthood is over for the season... that would've been bad.
And then there's this little girl:
She likes to dress herself in tutus, furry boots, and winter vests to play soccer in the front yard.
And I love it.
I keep finding myself wondering about what she thinks of this whole thing.
She's going through changes, too, you know.
Only child to Big Sister.
Our baby to our first born.
How much does she understand?
I'm glad I don't know everything... that would be way too much to handle.
As much as this new chapter amazes me, it's got to be pretty big for her too...
I can't wait to see her face when she meets her sister for the first time.
I wish I could record what my eyes see.
That would be cool.
Somebody should get on inventing that.
I'm in the middle of moments.
She was mesmerized by this water...
I'm trying to sear every possible little detail I can into my brain lately.
I don't want to leave anything out.
I want to remember what it was like with her.
With just one.
My first little girl who had me all to herself for 2 1/2 years.
I've had my camera attached to my side these last few days,
trying to capture every last snippet of time,
but even then,
I find myself just watching instead.
I just snap a few
here and there,
hoping the rest will stick with me...
I think I like it better that way.
I'm in the middle of making memories:
I'm in the middle of projects.
A gaZILLion projects.
But good ones.
Ones that I'm glad I'm in the middle of.
There's the Big Girl Room/Nursery, of course.
And then I will share.
I'm so proud of the patience I've showed by waiting until it's all done...
so you have to be patient, too.
Hint: these are for the above-mentioned room.
And then there's these beautiful fabrics that have already been
cut and semi-assembled into a
quilt like this one.
It will be fabulous, don't you think?
I love making quilts for other people and seeing what they pick and choose to reflect themselves.
It's just as much fun as the actual making of the quilt...
And of course there's a couple custom nursery sets in the making...
for friends, family, and strangers alike!
The fabric shows up in the mail every day!
SO much fun I get to have over here.
The UPS man says things like,
"Just a small one today."
"Wow, this one's the biggest so far."
I'm in the
And that's right where I think I'm supposed to be.
