it's a boy... again :]

so i will soon be joining the ranks of a crazy group of women- mothers to three boys. how weird. i can't say that i'm not totally stoked... cause i am. i no longer have the challenge of integrating a girl into our very boyish lifestyle and i am relieved about that. truth be told, i enjoy being the only source of girly hormones in this house. even still, it's fair to say that our lives will never be the same. three kids seems huge to me, but i'm up for the challenge. sooooo.... now the i have the amazing project of making over the boys' room to accommodate a crib and making changes to the color scheme so i can redo all the bedding. i love this part :]
and here's my favorite pic from the ultrasound, how cute are these little legs?! for the record, my dad sits with his feet crossed like this, and every one of my boys has inherited it- how cute....

spend all your time waiting...

i realize that i have yet to hold up my part of the bargain on two things: keeping my blog updated, and posting pics. i just noticed that alden's october cake and quilt never made it to the screen either. soooo..... maybe i'll edit this post to include them later on today. or... maybe i won't because i'll forget as my pregnant brain fails me a gazillion times more than my un-pregnant one when it comes to multi-tasking and real-lifin' it. this is utterly ridiculous. but i did manage to finish the baby quilt that's been sitting in the basket for 3 months, and last night i stayed up all night making two of the most adorable cakes for a friend's daughter. i ALMOST feel like myself again sometimes. and then i realize that my life is still upside-down and all shaken up, but that's the way i like it. no worries. so... here's to later on today. we'll see what happens :]

p.s. monday is the big reveal... should totally be able to find out what we need to buy this time around: tiny pink moccasins or mini blue flip-flops.....*sigh*

As Promised!!!! my latest accomplishments:

longggggggg overdo.

Wow. Where on earth have I been? As you know, this baby has been taking me for quite the ride, and I still have 5 months to go :] But I'm back to feeling like Bekah again, which is saying a lot. I'm really not sure who's been living in this body, but it hasn't been me. Today I'm finishing a quilt that is lacking a stitch or two and the binding. I will not promise pics tomorrow, but it could happen :] I am super motivated for a little quilting action these days. I'm a month overdo on a birthday quilt for my sister. Sorry, Ruthie. And I desperately need to finish some of the other quilts I've started so I can get them for sale on Etsy. This, my friends, is how I plan on funding the makeover in my boys' bedroom. The tiny space has to accommodate another person, thus, another bed. And I'm ok with that as long as it still feels like a comfortable space, which will take a little effort on my part. But Jesus is faithful to keep me sane this far, so I think it'll all come together. Again, I'm so sorry for taking so long to get back to this blog. I've missed it. So here's to the new year and all the craziness that awaits.
