what i've been up to... and big belly


Ok, I really haven't been doing non-stop baby showers and fun crazy parties... it has actually been pretty low key around here.  The only big change has been my belly, really.  I made these little magnets for the cute girls I work with at the Mip.  This is mostly just for my sisters and mom to see, because they were having a hard time imagining what it was I was talking about.  I am super into wool felt lately.  My Christmas tree has TONS of felt ornaments and I am starting to make little flower clips for the babe.  She is going to be SO cute in them, I just know it!  I got the idea from this site.  Too many cute things on that site!



And you want proof that we weren't lying about having a kiddo? Ok, here was me on Feb. 4th... so that was like, what 30 weeks?

yeah, I decided to pose in front of our sliding glass door so you could
 really get the full outline going.  love that.


and here we are at 35 weeks (this was taken last week).  


oh, and you totally wanted a close up, right?  i thought so.


ok, that is it for now.  I just made chocolate chip-walnut-toffee cookies AND carmel walnut brownies.  Yeah, I really better go.  :)  no, they are for a little gal get-together, not just because I was hungry, thank you very much.

You look great!!! Don't even feel like you have to explain yourself. It is OK if you want to eat a full batch of cookies and a whole lot of brownies. If you did it would make me feel better about how I ate when I was pregnant. Good luck with these last couple of weeks.

Okay confession..I too am addicted to wool felt. I'll have to show you some of my latest creations. I love this stuff and buy it by the bulk. If you would like a little discount on it and a little more bulk of it, call me darling. We'll do business.

As for the cute belly...way to be! I love the pictures. You look really good....go enjoy one of those brownies you made. I sure love you. I would of course love to talk to you live, anytime. Hopefully sooner rather than later, agreed? Agreed. Swing, botta bing! :)

Girlfriend! You could button up that lil gray sweater and still have people whistle at you! Okay, so the sweater might be a squinch bit tight but you do look FAB!
I love the little felty flowers. What do you stuff them with? You are SO creative! I think your finest creation of them all was the black boy picture you had to make out of different textures. Remember that? Okay, probably not your FINEST piece, but the memories of helping you find those patterns on trash cans and shoes was pretty great.

You are darling! I can't believe you are almost there! I also love the cute magnets you made with your endless creativity!

Your cookies and brownies were absolutely amazing! So glad I got to experience them!!

Katrina said...

You are too cute! I just love you! I love your creativity and only wish I had half of it!

I also love the prego pix! Melis and Aaron mommy and daddy? Crazy thought...you will be the best parents ever!

And hello, will you please send me the recipes to your deliciousness? (a melis word) You know my e-mail, and I am requesting both the cookie and brownie recipe. Thank you very much and good day!

melissa you look so so so good, i love pregnant bellies, i actually miss mine (the look of it, not the miserable sleepless nights or baby foot in my rib!) can't wait to see her cuteness.

Kristen said...

I love how you always wear a cute sweater or zip jacket. It looks very good on, I will have to remember that next time I am pregnant.

Becca & Jonathan said...

You're so cute preggie! I'm sure your little carrot topped muffin will be adorable too. I've been checking out the blog and as always I am super impressed with all your creative, fun, cute ideas and plans! Too bad my baby boy has an un-creative mommy! :)
