Have been away from my blog for a while...

I have been absent from my blog for a long time. I am not going to apologize; it is a personal blog, after all; you post when you feel inspired, or have something to share.

Recently, I have not been inspired to sew or create anything. I don't know if this will change soon; for now, it is what it is. meanwhile, I have been looking at the spring-summer trends and collections, and I am yet to be inspired (there seems to be a lot of reiteration).

I have some news, though. I am 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd child. I went through a grueling 12 weeks of feeling nauseated from morning till evening. makes you wonder why the condition is called "morning sickness." I don't know the gender of the baby, yet, I feel oddly sure it is going to be a boy. One way or another, I will know in a few weeks. I did some pregnancy-wear sewing last time around; I don't know if I'd do it again. For now, I fit in my regular clothing, thank goodness!
We have told Emma she is going to be a big sister, and she is very excited about it. Knowing her personality, she will be awesome at nurturing a younger sibling. She is already planning on all the things she will teach her younger brother or sister. However, she is concerned that it will hurt me when the baby comes out, and has been trying to make me promise I would not cry. I have not committed to any bravery! I also explained to her how the baby is going to come out (through where), and she thought it was "silly."
On a separate note, I am finishing my degree this spring, yay!

Anywho, here are two photos of me:



Btw, if anyone is pregnant out there: Do yourself a favor and get a Boppy full body pillow! i did not do it with Emma, and have lived to regret it. It makes sleeping at night a much smoother experience. It is retails for $50-$60, and is money wisely spend, in my opinion!

Congratulations! I'll bet that nausea had something to do with your lost sewing interest. Maybe it will come back now that you are feeling better.
