Instilling the gospel...

This post is not about what you think it's about.

In church yesterday A was playing quietly with a Barbie during the last talk.  I didn't even think she was paying attention.  Brother Orr said that he wanted to instill the gospel in his children and grandchildren.  Suddenly A bursts out, not quietly I might add...

"That is so bad! We don't steal from the gospel! It will make Heavenly Father mad!"

In her defense he did pronounce it "in-steeling." It gave the lovely women in front of us a good laugh though and at least we know she knows stealing is bad.  Love that girl.

I LOVE the Sound of Music.

It is my absolute favorite movie. I think I've seen it a hundred times. And every time I watch it this scene gets to me. It's a beautiful song but the time period it's set in and his little monologue before hand make it so poignant and sweet.

So here I am on a thursday morning folding laundry bawling my eyes out while I watch this movie. If you haven't seen it you really need to!

The Great Debate

We had a discussion lat night at dinner. We were talking about baby names and there is no agreement. The names I like are "lame." the ones Daddy likes are weird or boring... (truely... He wanted to name K Wally or Chip)  A is adamant that the baby be named Ariel since there is no way we are having a boy according to her... And k like names from his pirate books.

I don't see a consensus happening any time soon. Lol.

The complete sheet

Bumperless crib bedding... Love it or hate it?

 I love bumpers because they are so dang cute. I have had them for both my kids. Are they safe? Probably. I think bumper less is a safety fad. But making bumpers is a HUGE pain in the butt. So... If we need to make bedding this time around it will be bumperless. The problem is that in looking at all the options, they are not cute.

 Till I came across this site.  But they only have a couple options and I'm not in love with any of them.  But I do love that you get the illusion of a bumper.

So when I decided to make my nephews crib bedding I thought this would be a great time to try making one.  I have never worked with piping before... It kinda scares me.  But I found out it isn't all that bad. AND  I learned a few things for next time.  I should be a pro now!

I also made a crib skirt and quilt.  Hopefully pictures to come.

Little Nubbins

We got another look at the baby on Friday! What a difference 2 weeks makes! The little one was even waving its little nubbins around. It was really great to see its little heartbeat because I really don't feel pregnant so I was getting a little nervous. Everything looked great though so they are sending my records to my regular OB. Which means I don't have to drive to Boise anymore! Yay!!! 
9 weeks down... 31 to go. Doh! I should just not do that. ;)
