Pregnancy Update

Well, I am 1 day shy of 28 weeks...I'm getting close and nowhere near ready! ACK!!! I feel pretty good most days, though today was NOT one of them. I'm doing really good as far as weight gain, so far I lost 10 lbs and gained 12 lbs back...way different than when I was pregnant with Donovan, I gained 40lbs with him! With this baby I am definitely all belly and can still fit most of my regular clothes, I joke all the time and say my jeans fit better now than they did last year (but it's the truth since most of the weight loss was in my thighs and butt)! My doctor appointments have gone smoothly, I have my last monthly appt on the 8th and then I go every 2 weeks! I took the glucose tolerance test Wednesday...those are always fun (yeah right)!

Speaking of my Donovan, he's become so camera crazed and decided to jump in on my self photo shoot. I love the way this pic came out, could that little face get any more adorable? Isn't he tall? I'm 5'8" and he's already past my navel! He'll be 4 in less than 2 weeks.

Is that a basketball in my shirt? This pic came out blurry, but I kind of like the dreamy effect! Oh by the way, do you like my new 'do? I wanted to try something drastically different for the New Year, but I like the fact that my hair is growing so nicely, so I compromised and bought a wig...that's right, I'm gettin' wiggie wit' it! LOL! It's such a cute style and looks so natural!

The LSS where I teach is celebrating their 2nd anniversary the last weekend of this month and I'm going to demo glimmer mist and crackle paint. I had fun playing with both on this card...the customers will be able to do this as a make n take!
I sprayed the background with bubble gum glimmer mist and added patterned paper from Imaginisce's Valentines Line. To create the heart: I cut the heart from chipboard, covered with Ranger's black acrylic paint, coated with Ranger's old paper crackle paint, and then sprayed with glimmer mist, allowing to dry between layers. The title is my own handwriting which I colored in with a Sakura gelly roll pen.
Close up of the heart.
Another pic of my little cutie pie! I can't believe how much he has grown, I feel like I just gave birth to him!

Oh Tanisha, you look wonderful! I love the new do. Very stricking on you. I say keep it!!! That little bundle in your belly is just that a little bundle in your belly. I can't believe how well you have done. I can even tell that you have lost weight in the rest of your body with those pics! Keep up the good work.

I was so sorry to read about your sister. Hopefully this will be the wake up call that she needs to stop and smell the flowers!!!

Take care!!!
