Introducing to you a little mini version of Jimbo and me! The time has come for the "public" announcement, even though most of my family, friends and pets and their families and friends and pets know about it. I found it hard to keep my mouth shut about such a huge thing so I basically blabbed the news to many people!
We have hit the 12 week mark and the little munchkin is due on the 9th of November.
A big fat congratulations to Sally from Georgie Love too for her news and can you believe it, we are due at the same time!!? Plus, I even bought this tile that she wants, I thought that was an extra funny little coincidence! (It's awesome in real life, by the way- and from misterrob.)
Back to the baby news!! We had our ultrasound yesterday and I giggled through the whole thing. We've got a dvd of it and so far I have watched it numerous times. Every time I woke up last night I thought about how bizarre it was that I have this little thing living and kicking around inside me! It truly is going to take a while for my brain to wrap it's self around this fact. And you know when you find a new hobby or something you really had fun doing and you wake up the next day and think, yes, I'm going to do that again today and you're all excited? Well, that's how I felt about watching the dvd again.
So this is why I've moved back to the country, and also why I have made up my mind to really focus on my own art and craftiness for the next 6 months instead of doing heaps of illustration work. I am so excited about taking some time to really find my own inspiration again and follow through my artistic urges (which are taken over at the moment by illustration work) and also make some baby clothes, toys and quilts. Not to mention the fact that I'm dying to get into the garden and grow some veggies but I just haven't had the time.
And blogging! More blogging!
