Announcing Baby Brug

      At the beginning of January, we found out that I was pregnant. I wasn't feeling well, so I took a pregnancy test before calling the doctor the next morning. To my surprise, two pink lines showed up. I screamed for Jaycob. He came in looked at the test, laughed, and didn't believe it. He said to take another one and he went to bed. I waited an hour or two, then took another test - again, two happy pink lines. I went to bed and called the nurse in the morning. She said that the tests are pretty accurate and to schedule an appointment for my 8th week check-up. When Jaycob came home from baseball practice, I had this note waiting for him:

He was shocked & thrilled!
      We waited until after our first check-up (ultrasound) that confirmed the pregnancy, before telling our families. We put it up on the skype screen while skyping Jaycob's family in Arizona. We put the picture in an envelope and gave it to my parents then showed my siblings after.

Here is a close up of the tag: 

      Now we only have six weeks left until my due date. We are so anxious and excited to meet this little one!

Car-seat Canopy Cover Pattern Tutorial

My sister Kara and I made car-seat canopy covers yesterday. It was really fun! We used this tutorial from the Sutton Grace blog. It was easy for us (very much beginners at sewing). Her tutorial says it will take 2 hours to complete the project but it took much longer for us, probably because we're idiots and don't know how to do this type of craft. 

This is mine. I chose a nice minty/teal fabric so that it will work for either a boy or a girl. 
My fabric is from Joann's (colors in picture below look a bit darker than it really is)
I did my straps a little differently than the tutorial shows. I added the second color just a few centimeters shorter on top to have the double layers.
 The Nautical one is Kara's. I love it! The fabric is from Sarah Jane Studio's "Out at Sea" line.

Call from the princesses - Cinder & Punzie

Evie just got a call from Cinderella and Repunzel because she was a big girl and ate her dinner! She made sure to put her lipstick on for the occasion 

Text "princess" to 33992. You can choose between, Merida, Cinderella, and Repunzel. It works! 

I was told that this no longer works. What a bummer.
