Update

Good Morning!

I am off of bed rest today and medication and eagerly awaiting the arrival of our little one! My Mom arrived yesterday and we are so glad to have her!

One of my lovely blog readers, Elise, sent me an amazing box of fun (thank you!!) which included these adorable dresses for the little ladies:

Starting Thursday, I'll be sharing Valentine ideas - so stay tuned!

I'm sure it is a relief to have Mom there knowing that your little man can make an appearance anytime. How exciting! Love the dresses and the picture is just precious.

Looking forward to your V day ideas. I made my version of the banner you made in the past. I posted it today. Have a great day!

Those dresses are adorable on the girls! So glad you are off bed rest and I am so excited for you to be having your lil one join your family soon! Boys are a lot of fun! :)

WHOO HOO!!! Yay for no more bedrest!! and Yay for your mom being there. Say Hello for me. I am anxiously awaiting the good news of your little man's arrival and I can't wait to hear the name you have chosen. The girls look adorable in the sweet dresses. Are those "pillowcase" dresses? I love the shirts under them. I didn't even think of that.

What a wonderfully exciting time. you are going to love having a little boy! I so miss the "baby" years. I was just telling Hubby last night that it is hard to let go of the hope for a new baby. a baby in the house brings such wonder and joy, the dynamics babies afford are so precious. Savor these times, and hold each tiny memory in your heart. I will be remembering you in my prayers for a safe delivery, until I hear the sweet news of his arrival.

So happy for you! The dresses are very cute as are the girls. I know this baby will be a wonderful addition to the family. I have 3 as well, they are getting older and I miss the baby days but life is good. God bless you and your family! Can't wait to hear when he arrives.

Glad to hear that you can be up and around once again. I remember being set free after a long stretch of bedrest and it was like being given a wonderful present. Enjoy your freedom!

Hey Monica!
I'm so glad to hear you're off bedrest! Your girls look sooo cute in their dresses. What a lovely friend you have! I'm so excited for you. Adding a baby boy to your family is exciting! I have one of each, and they are a joy in their own unique ways! I droped by to ask you to participate in an archive tag! If you are willing and up to it, please see my blog for details! Thanks, and Blessings on your day!

Mon,

Those girls look so cute and ready to welcome their baby brother. I am glad you made it to the "safe zone" and hope that the delivery is a breeze. I can imagine your mom is just like mine...when she visits she thinks of EVERYTHING and is soooo helpful. I love Grandma time, it's the best! I'll be watching for the announcement!

Best Wishes,
Michal

Such cute little dresses! Take good care of yourself and that precious baby. It's good to hear from you.

Tiff said...

I just found your blog through another blog and I really enjoyed looking through all your pages(loved your sewing stuff).

Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your baby, I hope you have a lovely and uneventful delivery :) I was on bedrest with my first baby and I know how great it is to get off the meds and have freedom again.

I can't wait to see your Valentine ideas.

Take care,
Tiff

Your girls are so cute in their little dresses!! How blessed you are to have your Mom with you. Now just relax and get ready to cover that little-guy-to-be with sweet kisses.

Oh, how I miss having a baby in my house - enjoy it.

Your friend,

I'm sure your Mom will be of great help to you. the dresses are adorable, they look like "pillowcase dress". I made one for my granddaughter. It is pictured on my blog.
