Well the countdown has begun! My due date is 10 days away, but I will most likely induce on the 18th, which is only 1 week away! We are inducing because Ethan was such a huge boy, and because Ross doesn't have any school and can get out of work on Fridays. Is that a cop-out? Well maybe.

Ross has been working full-time and going to school full-time, so he's gone a LOT. I've been taking advantage and getting some crafting done. I still haven't finished everything, but I thought I'd just take pictures of what I've gotten done.

Two flannel receiving blankets. My little machine had a
cute decorative stitch that I used. It took forever.

Three little onesies. Still need to stitch two of them.

A little dress. It still needs a ruffle on the front, but see
how it won't fit her for another year or so? Yeah, I'll finish it later.
My mom helped a lot with this one.

Decorated some burp cloths. If she's anything like
Ethan she'll use double this in a day!

Thanks to Annah for giving me her extra burp cloths!

Still need to make a blanket with this fabric.

And some pictures of Ethan (of course):

He loves tractors. He will always find them on every page.

And he loves to make this goofy face.

way to stay busy till the last minute. I love all the things that you made...I will admit that I am so in love with that little dress that I may just place a little order from you for Gwen. It is so darling.

I can't believe that your due date is here already, wow that summer went by fast. I am excited for you though, it is going to be fun, and exhausting, but lets focus on the fun part. She will be so fun to dress up and Ethan is going to be a wonderful big brother. Good Luck.
