A little sewing...

I decided to try and make some cutesie burp clothes for Carter...they are fairly expensive in all the stores that I've seen. They were pretty cheap to make. These were from fabric I bought at wal mart. They don't really have a lot to choose from..but I love the cowboy print. It's flannel so it's a little softer.
I am so NOT the sewing type-I almost threw my machine out the window and this was easy stuff. Guess I won't be sewing anything with a pattern anytime soon!!

I made these for my sister's best friend. The dr. is inducing her on the 14th(which happens to be my sisters birthday!) The girly fabrics are so much cuter.
And last....this is some fabric I bought at Hobby Lobby. I was kind of dissapointed- I couldn't really find much for boys. The paisley is kind of girly so we'll have to see if that passes daddy's inspection :0) Ty seems to think I am buying "too girly" of stuff for Carter. I don't really think so...

Baby Shower and Update

Can you believe it's already time for baby showers?!! I can't! I was 28 weeks(7MONTHS!) on Tuesday. Only 12 more weeks to go! These are some pictures from my shower at school on Monday.
This is not a particularly great picture of me-my eyes are closed- but I wanted to show off my bump. He's getting bigger by the day!

I got some super cute clothes!

And sweet cards! I also got a book that's absolutely precious. It's called On the night you were born by Nancy Tillman. If you are having a baby or just had one-or even if you have children at all---you should definitely check it out. It made me a little teary eyed when I read it. :0) Guess that's just part of becoming a mommy!

**Update on the pregnancy
I know, I know...I haven't been the best blogger lately. It seems like the closer the end of school gets- the busier I get.
I went Tuesday for my 7 month check up and the dreaded glucose test. Dr. said everything looks good- and I feel TERRIFIC! I haven't entered the exhaustion phase just yet- hopefully I wont. My only complaint is that my feet are killing me by 4:00 everyday. They are not swollen so that's a plus. However- the
dr called today and my sugar levels were way too high from my Tues. appt. So I have to go back next week for a 3 hour test. Ugh! They poke you FOUR times! I guess I'll have to get over my fear of needles before June 23rd! Well that's it for me now.....

Hope everyone is doing great!! Just think...only 9 more weeks of school!
