Big News...

Our baby girl will be born on Friday, April 2, 2010. We are so excited to add a new addition to our little family. We have waited 5 years. She is 3/4 African American and 1/4 Hispanic. She is going to be beautiful. Her name will be Zoe, but we are still working on a middle name. We want it to be meaningful and a family name. Pictures will be coming soon.
Thank you to all our friends and family who have been praying for us and supporting us.

This one is for Cheri

Cheri is a good friend and neighbor who reminds me often that I need to be updating my blog by showing my projects. I must say I have been slacking and feeling unmotivated to update my blog because I do not have much to say. So here is what I have been up to lately.
I forgot my sister's birthday (I know I am terrible sister). To make up for it, I made her this quilt for her baby's crib. She had all the bedding minus the quilt. This was made clear back in September.
This is a picture of my nephew Croy in his crib with his blanket.
My mom was so kind to buy us our first major purchase for our future baby. We decided to pick one that was generic so we would not need to worry if it is a boy or girl.
Don't worry, I figured out how to girlify it by adding pink, bows, flower, etc. I enjoyed making the car seat canopy until it came to the handles. It was a little tricky with the handles being crocked. Anyone who knows me, knows I figure out things the hard way.
Last, but no least. I made cute shoes for our future baby. It all started when 4 ladies at work announced they were pregnant with girls around the say time. 1 due in April, 2 due in May and 1 in June. So, I had some other staff help me throw a combined baby shower for the 4 of them. I made each a pair of booties. I am so addicted to shoes for myself and children, that our poor child will have more pairs of shoes then she will know what do with. I know shoes are unnecessary for babies, but who can resist when they are so cute.
Here is the website that I got the pattern from
Heather Bailey

Look for Bitty Booties
Adoption update: We have officially transferred our information to A Act of Love. We have been busy collecting paperwork and taking required classes. In case you didn't catch on, we have told them we would like a girl, because I will be totally obsessed with making her look cute. Hopefully we hear something by this summer. Keep us in your prayers please!
