It’s insane how time flies. High school was not that long ago (junior high either, for that matter). College was over in a blink of an eye. I have apparently been married for 6 1/2 years, though it feels like it can’t possibly be that long. And my boy, my baby couldn’t have been born more than a year ago.. right?
But now, he’s going to be a big brother!

Even though it seems so recent that we brought that tiny bundle home, he is growing up to be so sweet and wonderful. I can’t possibly imagine loving another child as much as I love him. But I am so excited for the opportunity.

We don’t know the sex yet, but I will keep you posted. For now, I am not doing any nesting, but when we find out it’s going to get crazy around here!

This baby will have so much handmade stuff, and I am so excited to make it.

If you have any amazing DIY baby ideas, I want to hear them!

  1. Congratulations!

    I found your blog searching for a cute baby booties (love how the Mary Janes turned out!) pattern for my fourth, due in August. There are tons of fun patterns out there! Here are a few I found in the last couple week that I’ve been working on (besides piles of bibs and burp cloths!):

    Happy nesting! I’ll be watching to see what you make.

    1. Oh yay! Congratulations on your 4th, how fun! Thanks so much for the baby ideas, I just made my ultrasound appointment so I can begin preparing in a few weeks when we find out. And I am so glad you liked my pattern, and found it useful! :) Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. CONGRATS!!!! :) I know it’s hard to believe that you could possibly love another the way you love your first… My oldest daughter had my heart & I was so afraid of the same thing, not loving baby #2 the way I loved her…. when I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter… But the moment I felt her move inside me I knew I’d love her just as much and the moment I looked into her sweet eyes I knew I loved BOTH my girls with ALL my heart! Then baby girl #3 & #4 I felt the same… An indescribable feeling of unconditional love!!! Congrats on baby #2… mine drive me INSANE at times lol but I wouldn’t change it for the world!!!!

    1. Thank you so much!! I know I will love this baby, but it is so hard to imagine two babies that have my heart. But I couldn’t imagine my first either, I guess the heart just grows to make more room! Thanks for your sweet comment :)

  3. Omg! congratulations! Is “Big brother” Happy to be big brother? Im so happy for u! http://www.repeatcrafterme has some GREAT baby girl crochet patterns! (Dont forget to put www. first, it seriously makes a difference) Click on her crochet tab and u have some cute baby girl ideas if the gender is Girl!

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, he seems excited! I don’t think he really understands, but he is so sweet and knows that “the baby is in mommy’s tummy.” He is a sweet boy, I know he will be loving and not the jealous type :)

    1. Thank you! I am due at the end of November, right before Thanksgiving. We will either be in the hospital or at Denny’s, haha!
