Our Little Gardener

JP had a great time helping me replant a tomato plant this week. He loves playing in the dirt so this was just right for him. He didn't want to stop putting dirt in the container and kept covering up the tomato plant. We also made little plant labels for our herbs and vegetable plants. he was so proud of them. We were outside when his daddy came home and he couldn't wait to show them off. It looks like we may have a pepper growing already-will have to see how it turns out.

Our attempts at gardening

Well I decided a couple of weeks ago that I wanted to try to grow some herbs and vegetables. I wanted to start off small since I'd need to plant in containers in the event we actually move anytime soon. So JP and I picked up six herb plants, six tomato plants and a green bell pepper plant! I planted three tomato plants in each container until I find a few more "light" containers.
So JP and I had a great time planting one afternoon and he loves to help me water the plants.
Anyway here are our plants two weeks ago after we planted them. I'll take some pictures this week to show any progress.

High Hopes

Well most of you know that we have had some good activity on our house this week. It really looks promising. Our house has been on the market for just about a year now and even though we knew it would take a special buyer we had hoped to have had it sold by now. Anyway, this potential buyer appears to see the potential the house has-much like I did when I purchased it 6 years ago. Even though I never got around to doing many of the things I had planned. Anyway, keep the prayers coming-we would really love to get moved before the baby is born!!! What a blessing that would be!

Preemie Hat

Yes another post for today! I am on a roll!
Here is a picture of one of the hats I have made. A friend of mine had dolls made to replicate the size and weight of her sons at birth(she had triplets at 21/22 weeks). Anyway she agreed to try the hat on to make sure it would fit a "micro-preemie". It does fit but looks a little fuzzy for my taste. Will try a different yarn next time. My plan is to make "memorial boxes" and donate them to the hospital I was treated at after my miscarriage last June. These hats are fun and easy to make. I look forward to putting my first kit together and getting it to the hospital!


Here are a few bookmarks I made. I've never made bookmarks before but I saw one someone else made and felt inspired to make a few. They were simple and fun and a practical little happy for any friend or family member. It also gave me a chance to use my new embossing tool-just loving that thing!!

27 Week sonogram

Went to the doctor today for my 27 week check up and sonogram!! Was great to see our little baby again and know everything is going great. The sonographer predicts the baby weights 2 lbs 9oz. Of course if you've been pregnant you know this is "just" a prediction and no real indication of how much the baby really weighs. But since I have gained close to 10lbs since my check up last month it was good to hear the baby is weighing about 9 ozs bigger than normal-so that is my excuse for the extra weight gain!!! Anyways. Baby is moving and kicking-still not as much as I would like but as long as I can feel a kick every now and then I know things are still going well. So here is a picture of our precious baby!!!


Here is my card for week 18 of Emily's mini art journal. This is a chipmunk that lives in the stump right outside our front windows. We have seen chipmunks come and go since we moved in six years ago. But this is about as close as I can get to them before they run back into hiding. I was worried my cats would run them off but luckily they have stuck around. They also like to run around under the deck and the bridge. The other day as I was walking along the bridge from our driveway to our front door a chipmunk ran out from under the bridge and made a quick escape into a hole under the pine straw.
This is a view I will surely miss when we move.

I love watching JP eat ice cream. He licks his cone instead of taking bites and it takes him forever to eat it. He loves watching the other video of himself eating ice cream and he laughs every time he says "cheese". So when I got the camera out on this day he knew exactly what to do. He says cheese about ten times and just cackles because he knows he is sooo cute!
