Wanted to share...

Sooooo much fun stuff going on at 2Peas...When I saw the album that MG created for NSD...I absolutely HAD to do it. I was so damn inspired.

I wanted to try each and every one of her little tips and tricks. The woman is insanely talented...I was so inspired that I pretty much spent ALL day Saturday working on this thing. My back was KILLING me. I even got Jen to do it...and have gotten Amber to promise she will do it. So excited to see theirs!

I did mine on my life RIGHT now. Like things that I am thinking, things the boys are doing, things sean is loving RIGHT NOW. So many little things I don't want to forget. And I know if I don't write them down, I will!

I'm too lazy to scan ALL the pages, but I did one on Sean, Julian, Sandler, Baby O, Amber, Sean & I both, and some snapshots that Jude took. I am too lazy too scan them all so I picked my favorite three.

I went to the scrapbook store, and all I came out with was this ONE piece of Minnie Mouse Disney paper. I LOVE it. I must buy another sheet of it. Its very Amberskolnick don't you think? {whom I ADORE} And that little black star on my nose is a symbol that I want my nose pierced.
!
Amber is VERY much a big part of my life right now. Such a support system. I couldn't make it without her emails and their insane titles, our phonecalls, our mail love...she inspires me on so many levels. She has introduced me to some AMAZING music, some YUM creamer, and we are so alike in so many ways. I am so glad she peamailed me 15 months ago. I cannot imagine her not being a part of my day. I love you Amby!


I am six months pregnant. Almost 26 weeks along. I have felt the little sassafrass moving for a very long time.
I don't know what the sex is...and I won't know until next week. The chinese calendar says boy, the heartbeat stereotypically says girl, I think boy, Sean thinks girl, we both HOPE boy, Jude says it better be a boy, and Sandler Bing just thinks he too has a baby in his belly.

I crave fresh sliced tomatoes, Mocha Blasts, and lots and lots of Orange Juice. Sweet Tea is no longer good to me, and I pee about every 4.8 minutes.

What I am trying to say is...this little baby...this little rugrat growing inside of me has been very REAL to me for a long time. Those close to me know how upset I was that I got pregnant. It was TOUGH. I felt a tremendous amount of guilt, that I wasn't THRILLED.

But to do a page on the baby, to finally acknowledge in my hobby "Hey dude...I know you're there! And I love you! And i can't wait to see you! Was an A-Ha moment for me. I AM going to be a momma of three. I WILL have three little beings to care for. It was meant for me. I honestly couldn't be happier.

That is so cool that you are so honest about your feelings. It is nice to see there are others I can relate to, I don't have kids, just me and my hubby for now, but I now what you meen about feeling bad about things in your life that totally turn out to be awesome. I'm not good at guessing, so I flipped a coin, it was heads, so that means a BOY! Hehe! I am sure you will be thrilled either way. Later . . .

Just wanted you to know that I have been there -when I found out I was pregnant with the second one (after years of trying and failed treatments)I was devastated. And I felt so guilty for not wanting her. Of course when I look into those little eyes now I can't imagine life without her. Thanks for being so candid.
ps. love all your creations.
