Okay, confession time. Sometimes I'm nothing more than a *blog lurker.* I justify in my mind that I have too much to do to spend time writing on all the blogs I peruse -- but now I can't anymore. I have been in love with this blog for quite some time now, admiring all the greatness that it holds -- and the free giveaways. For some reason, I've never taken the time to enter, but now I decided I will after all. This talented mom is an amazing seamstress (I keep telling myself one day I'll be there!) and gives away her creations. This week is a simply delicious little outfit that makes me yearn even more for fall. Click on the link to see it -- you'll be hooked!
Apple Orchard Overalls GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!
In other totally unrelated news, I have hit the 30-week mark of this pregnancy ... yahoo!!!! I have already started all my "nesting" projects and can't wait to meet this little one. Chad and I go back and forth on whether we'll add more pink to our home or blue. I am pretty much carrying the exact same way (except I feel bigger this time -- but of course, my body only had about 4.5 months to recover before it started changing again), the heartbeat is the same as Juliana's was, but this baby moves ALL over the place!
Juliana is starting to walk, which we didn't think she'd be able to do on her tiny little feet! I think she is finally going to outgrow her size 1 shoes by her first birthday! Still not much hair, unfortunately, but that little girl has loads of personality -- she is learning just how loud she can be these days. Chad and I just love to sit and watch her play sometimes. She is also finally getting more teeth -- she's only had two since 6 months. We like to joke that she also takes after her Meme Patty Burtch in her sleeping habits -- this kid LOVES to sleep. At least once a week she will sleep in til 9 or 10 am ... very nice for mama's to-do list!
Finally, this Sunday we have our Grand Opening Service at church. We will be canvassing the surrounding neighborhoods this week to let families know we are new to the area. We are praying for a great crowd and planning to have no extra seats!!!
