Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...

We are having a little girl!

Marty and I found out this fun news on the 11th and have been adjusting to adding a little girl into our lives in June ever since.  We were both pretty convinced that the baby was a boy, mostly because of all the normal "old wives tales".  I was not sick in the first trimester, I was carrying the baby all in the front, the heartbeat was under 150, I did not want sweets.  We are so excited to parent a little girl and help her develop into a strong woman who loves and serves the Lord.

We shared this news with the staff at Seven Rivers through cute, pink cake pops.  Our friend, Emily, who in an amazing party planner, gave me some great tips to make these cake pops!  Check out her business at A Silver Nutmeg Occasions .  I made a strawberry cake pop, with white chocolate shell and pink sugar crystals.  Although it was an 80 degree day they set pretty well, and held up throughout our deliveries.

  We enjoyed celebrating with the staff at church!  There also was a Mops garage sale event that I took advantage of and found a couple cute pieces for our little Junebug.  This is just the beginning of smocked clothing and big hair bows that we see in our future :)

Also, when I was in college, I started a crib quilt.  I had planned on finishing it a long time ago yet time flies.  I am trying to decide what to do with it.  I don't think we are going to plan our nursery around it, since we are trying to keep things gender neutral in our nursery, yet I want to use it in some way since I made it and I am almost finished with it. Any ideas?

yay! congrats!
we also did a gender neutral nursery (because we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl when i was pregnant with my son) and we did it mostly navy and chartreuse -- then i planned to add pink or purple accent. since he was a boy we left it alone, but i still think it'd work to add girly-ness. (we hope our son and baby on the way can share the room...)

the quilt is beautiful! you definitely need to use it, even if it becomes a play quilt for a living area.
so excited for the big bows! :)
