Rough couple of days.

I have been having horrible cramps and some contractions for the past couple of days. Yesterday I went to the doctor and got checked out. Only 1 cm dilated still ( been that way since 23 weeks ). My cervix is a little more thinned out, but still looks good. They checked my amniotic fluid levels, hooked me up to the fetal monitors and everything looked pretty good. They also did another FFN test and it came back negative. So, my doctor feels pretty confident that I won't go into labor in the next week or so, but doesn't think I will make it until my planned c section on September 27th. We will see I guess. Damian has been at home with me over the past couple of days and I am so happy to have him here with me. He has been busy with all the honey do's, and has gotten most of Noah's room put together. :) I will post some pictures soon.

Getting Crafty

Since I am at home now, and not on strict bed rest yet, I have decided to start getting crafty. I have also enjoyed doing crafts, but working full time, taking care of a toddler, a husband and two dogs doesn't always leave me the time for crafting.

I got this idea from my friend Elizabeth. She tye dyed some diaper flats, and they looked awesome. Since I want to try several different methods of cloth diapers this time, I decided to give it a try and tye dye some flats for Noah. I really like how they came out. Check out how AWESOME they look!

I am so excited to keep crafting while I have the time. Working on Noah's wall letters for his room now, so I will post pics of them as soon as I finish them.

Trying to keep up

I was MIA for a while and have kinda updated a little. I was going to try and update everything that has happened in the last 8 months, but it just isn't going to happen. You saw pics from Faith's birthday and now you know that we are having a baby boy in September. His name will be Noah James, and we are so excited!
I have had some complications with this pregnancy just like I did with Faith, and am at home. No more work for me as of right now, because my blood pressure has been getting too high. So I am taking it easy at home and trying to become more domesticated.
Trying to learn how to save money, and live thrifty. :) If you have any good tips, let me know.

Luckily we have almost everything we need for Noah. At least all the big stuff except the car seat. We are getting everything ready for his big debut, and Faith has been an awesome helper.

My work was so kind and threw us a baby shower. They even made Faith a little mini mum to wear for being the big sister. We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our life.
Here are some pics from the baby Noah Shower. Enjoy...
