Lil' Diva!!!

Since SD was almost 2 lbs bigger than DD and her shoulder got stuck my doctor's office scheduled two additional ultrasounds. Today we got to see Lil' Diva at 32 weeks!!! We've never seen any of our babies on ultrasound past 18 weeks so this was pretty exciting. She totally smiled for us and we melted...of course:)

We won't be getting induced though because she's "normal" size, therefore giving no cause for concern in the weight department. I'm fine with this because I like going into labor naturally. I still hope she comes at least "on time" because being overdue is NO fun.

This process NEVER ceases to amaze me!

So with two girls, a third on the way, and they all have full heads of hair I have decided I need to start making boutique style bows myself. They are rather expensive if you go out to the stores and purchase so I put my craftiness to work and I'm actually pretty good at making them. It was kind of surprising, but it was also a very therapeutic process for me. Sitting quietly involved in a repetitive project where I get to be creative...a great outlet!

I'm getting ready to get "stocked up" and make several so that I can sell them on the side. Be on the look out!

Here are just a few I've made so far with some store bought ribbon. I get better with every bow and with the good ribbon I order they'll look even better.

I am 31 weeks preggo and cannot wait until Lil' Diva makes her entrance:) This pregnancy has been very different with aches and pains, but I've still been on the move. You can't exactly sit still with a 2 1/2 year old and 15 month old always buzzing to color, play upstairs, dance, or go outside. My girls are the light of my life and I LOVE being with my little princesses everyday:)
