Not quite a craft, but cute.

In my last post I promised to make more crafts, but so far I have only succeeded in making a baby.  But isn't it just the cutest little blobby thing ever?  I go back to work next week and I'm sad.  However, I have decorated for fall, cleaned all my carpets, kept my house clean, spent oodles of time with my mom and sisters, completed my 1st trimester, made breadsticks that weren't gross, baked a lot, and helped Danno with homework.  All in all, I chalk this up to a successful off track time.  I wish it were longer.

Crafty crafterness

I love being off track.  I say that every time.  I know- I'm aware.  But I just want to make sure you are all aware.  I decorated the house for fall yesterday and I got the craft bug so I made this fun little tree thingy.  I keep seeing decorations like this and I really wanted one.  As I was browsing Martha Stewart online I saw something reminiscent of this and then realized that I had an endless supply of dried up sticks!  This is all thanks to our stinkin' garbage trees that are slowly, but surely falling on our house.  Seriously, who lets a cottonwood tree and the poisonous banana tree grow in their yard?!  Anyway, I just found some aesthetically pleasing branches, spray painted them black, made some ornaments, found some sparkly ribbon and a pot.  I love having time to do things for my little house and family.  Hopefully there will be more crafts to come soon.

2 1/3 and a puppy

As many of you know, we are preggo!  I am now 13 weeks and quickly departing from my 1st trimester of pregnancy.  I am hoping that this means the painful symptoms are leaving as well.  However, compared to my sisters and mother, my pregnancy has been really mild.  I have only thrown up twice and just have back pain (so intense!) and nausea.  This is the strangest experience.  I totally thought when I became pregnant I would feel instantly different.  Tis' not the case.  I feel the same-I'm still Janelle, but I feel bloated and my belly is protruding.  We had the awesome experience of seeing baby-bean via ultrasound and it was the sweetest and most adorable blob I have ever seen.  Since then we are in love.  Here is the short version of our pregnancy events:
  • I had a cough that wouldn't go away so I went to the doctors office if I could get a refill on my inhaler.  We had just, and I mean JUST, started trying so I thought that there was a 5% chance I could be pregnant.  Due to the medicine I was going to get they needed to check if I was preggo. Yuppers I was!  I just laughed and giggled and couldn't control it!  Poor doctor Vogelar just smiled and put up with me.
  • While at Barnes and Noble, I told Danno I wanted a book that compared our baby to fruit sizes.  He thought I was crazy.  But he still helped me find the perfect book and baby is currently the size of a peach.  A sweet, fuzzy (baby has hair now), wiggling little peach.
  • Danno is now the official man for stinky jobs.  He is the sole poop picker-upper, garbage taker-outer, Yuki tooth brusher, and other various scents that bum out my super smeller.

 So that is it!  I have the most wonderful husband who takes care of my ailing body and tells me how cute I am even though I'm chunkin' out.  I am so lucky to be so loved.  Baby is already so loved.  Lucky lil' 1/3 of a person.
