To Elise, Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

Today at about 8:55 AM, Elise turns two. I can't believe how quickly these two years have passed. I love that little nugget so very, very much. Heart-overflowing type love. My girls are rad, in all senses of the word rad.

And I'm going to use this to plug the March of Dimes March for Babies walk on Saturday. Elise was born at 33 weeks due to preeclampsia. She weighed 3lbs. 3oz.. As you probably know, Darsie was even small, 1lb. 12oz.. Babies shouldn't be born this small and the scary thing is, some babies are born even smaller, even sicker. We can help prevent premature births and birth defects by supporting organizations such as the March of Dimes. I've raised $200 so far, which is awesome. I'd love to raise more if possible.

For each dollar that you donate to the March of Dimes, I am giving you one chance to win one of two fabulous items. Up for grabs is your choice of a handbag or a baby blanket made by me. Also up for winning is a gorgeous crocheted baby blanket made by Mommy Daisy. I know things are rough out there for a lot of people, but even a dollar helps.

I plan to be back to blogging more soon. Morning sickness and tiredness and mind numbing lameness has taken over for the time being. I'm 11 weeks on Friday! Yowsa!

I have had this link for awhile, but I just had to share it with anyone who is planning a birthday party and needs CUTE CAKE ideas!

Elise is turning two on the 29th and she is getting the monkey cake. And Darsie, although she will probably change her mind come September, has requested the castle cake.

It's making me hungry just looking at them. Off to raid the pantry.

Spilling the Beans

I'm really, really horrible at keeping secrets. HORRIBLE. Especially if they are my own. So, in honor of my personal horrendous ability to keep secrets and my general disarray lately, I'm just going to spill the beans. Jeff and I are having another baby! We weren't trying but were actively preventing so this has been very shocking and has taken some time to get used to but I think we're both finally on the road to excitement. Darsie certainly is excited enough for the whole family. I'm due about mid-November.

I'd also like to remind everyone of my March for Babies Walk that I will be doing on May 2nd. Help support a great organization that is helping to prevent premature birth by sponsoring me. For every dollar that you donate, you will get one chance in my raffle to win a hand bag from my Etsy shop or a baby quilt. Mommy Daisy has also donated a hand-crocheted baby blanket, so there are actually TWO prizes. You can donate through the widget at the bottom of this bage.

Thanks everyone!
