I'm So Crafty, I Make People

This phrase that I saw from a friend struck me the other day because it was apropos. I've never been one for making announcements, but I'm guessing I can't just suddenly pop out a baby this March and move on in the blog arena like nothing monumental happened. TK and I are expecting a boy March 2 and are looking forward to this new stage of life with great excitement! I've always wanted to be a mama, and by our estimation there's no time like the present.
Due to the baby's male nature, I'm afraid my new found love of pink, girly fabrics will quickly meet its demise...or at least be diminished. C'est la vie... there are still plenty of things I can make and create for junior. His dad, a carpenter/contractor and all-around wonderful man, is thrilled to have a boy coming to whom he can impart his creative passions as well.

Wish us luck over the next 4 remaining months!

Congratulations again Sarah! I'm so excited we are both expecting March babies! And like you said, I just wish we lived closer so they could play together, or at the least we could commiserate over these last few months of pregnancy! Hope you are feeling great! And where's the belly picture? :) j/k!

You also love greens and oranges, so you can always fall back on those colors!
