Not much scrappy news to report here these days. My days are filled with feeding, sleeping and pooping...and I'm loving every minute of it! I am definitely snapping a ton of pictures, and one of these days I'll find time to scrap some! For now...I'm just taking one day at a time and enjoying my baby girl!

It's a GIRL!

She's finally here! Kaylin Lee was born 1/28/09 at 2:25am. Weighing 7lbs 6 1/4 ounces and measuring 20 3/4 inches. She's doing well...now we're all just trying to get a routine in order and get some sleep where we can.

Just some graphic playing...

So lately my paper scrapping stuff is piled under baby stuff and I haven't had the motivation to digi scrap, either. But I have put together a few cute little graphics here and there. Here are my faves lately.

Getting closer

So tomorrow I'll be at 34 weeks...6 weeks to go. I can't believe it! I've been feeling healthier, with almost no nausea (KNOCK ON WOOD!!) which is great! I was sick with bronchitis for about 2 weeks and that was miserable as my lungs are already getting smushed by a baby and then they were full of crap to boot. I'm about over it now and starting to look forward to Christmas at least a little bit. We went Christmas shopping with my hubby's parents today and they kept trying to get me to pick stuff, but I just really have a hard time wanting anything for myself right now. I did pick up 2 huge paper stacks from DCVW at Joann's...I love the variety in them and they've always got something good for a themed page/album.
My sister and her husband are coming the day after Christmas and staying through the weekend. We've been busy trying to get the guest room/nursery cleaned up and presentable for their visit...but the bed is still covered COVERED in baby stuff. We'll get there, I'm sure...it is frustrating, though.
I also just found out my friends who are traveling nurses will finally be putting down "roots" for the next 2 1/2 years. Joe will be going back to school for nurse anesthethist (yeah, I can't spell that, forget it) in Philly so they'll be parking their hineys there for awhile. I'm super excited to have them back in the state again for a good while. And Philly will be cool because it's so rich in history, I can't wait to visit. AND it's close to NYC. Woohoo! I see many fun trips in the next few years...hopefully baby likes to travel.

Still hanging in there...

This picture was last week...28 weeks 4 days... I had a few good days of not being too sick feeling, but it doesn't seem it's going to last...darn! Then I had my 1 hour glucose screen and failed! But, today was the 3 hour test and I got a call already that I passed! Thank goodness my husband's aunt works at the office so she called, otherwise I probably wouldn't have heard anything until my appt on Monday.
Saturday is my baby shower. I'm really looking forward to it. Should be fun, I just hope I feel good unlike my first shower.
I've been attempting to scrap a few generic pages for the baby to use as a Christmas present for the grandmas next year. I'm thinking that I'm probably not going to have much scrapping time once this kid gets here, and trying to prepare...hehe.
Other than that, life just moves on...sometimes fast and sometimes slow. I can't believe it's Thanksgiving next week! And today we got some snow! Oh my!

Checking back in...

Well alot of time has gone by, but not much has changed too drastically. The belly keeps getting bigger, even though I keep losing weight... I had my last day of work the end of August...hooray! Our county fair started the same day. I entered some of my pictures from California, and my surfer picture actually won 1st prize in the landscapes/seascapes division. I was quite surprised and happy. I had a horrible bladder infection the middle of September. And then we headed out to Indiana for a visit and a baby shower. Luckily, the morning sickness seems to be tapering off. I've had some very nauseous moments lately, but mostly due to pain from the bladder infection and now I think I have a rib out of place that I really need to make an appointment to have looked at, but keep forgetting. Over all I'm feeling more decent and restless. I want to do things, but don't know what those things are yet...and I don't quite have the energy/stamina to do much of anything, but my brain sure goes a mile a minute. I'm hoping to work on scrapbooking some once my husband goes back to work on Monday...but for this weekend we're going to try to get the old junk room cleaned out to be transformed into a baby's haven. Should be fun!
