December Delivery

So the announcement I mentioned?

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!


  1. Congratulations! You look adorable in that calendar shirt. :)

  2. Congratulations!!! WHat exciting news! And what an awesome shirt!

  3. Congrats Johanna! You guys must be so thrilled! Can't wait to follow along on your journey - pass my well wishes to the Mr (and M too).
