That's right, December will see our family of three become 4! (or 5, with the kitty) We're very excited, little M claims to love babies, so we'll hope that continues!
I didn't do a great job of recoding my pregnancy with M (aside from a picture or two every month or so) so I wanted to do something a little more organized and fun.
And in the last few months, I discovered the awesome DIY Maternity blog! Started up by Megan Nielson, designer extraordinaire, it has tons of tutorials for making your own maternity clothes! So there I found the tutorial for the Maternity Calendar shirt designed by Miranda of One Little Minute.
It's pretty simple, although a bit time consuming on account of all the cutting out required. But I like the slightly rough look my numbers ended up with. The only things I changed was to just use a fabric marker to cross off my weeks rather then fabric paint.
So, what's next? Well, I've had to abandon my dress a month project, as most of my planned patterns don't accommodate a bump! A few do, and I've got some maternity projects planned that will likely include a dress or two! I scooped up a couple of Megan Nielson's maternity patterns on a recent trip, and once the end of July gets here and I know if this munchkin is a boy or a girl, more baby clothes must be made! Oh the possibilities!
And yikes, my bump looks big in these photos! I actually like that I'm showing a good bit, makes it all seem so much more real!
