It's a .........??? (and giveaway winners)

Soooooo we are having a .................... BOY!! :)

Logan Charles Malloy

Needless to say I am thrilled but I think my husband is very proud of himself for helping to create a boy to carry on his family name :) Hehehe! 

We had a lovely time out afterwards and went to eat at Joe's Crab Shack :) Then we went to look at baby stuff :) We went to Babies R Us, Target, and Carter's - halfway through our shopping I was getting really sore. Geesh. Round ligament pain SUCKS! I feel like I was punched down there and that I rode a horse for a long time yesterday --- neither of which happened LOL. Ehhh it's all worth it for little Logan :)

Here's the clothes we bought :)

Aren't the outfits just so darn cute!!??!!

And on to the giveaway winners :) :) :) 

I decided to choose two winners randomly :)

First winner is Sarita Boyette - $20 gift certificate to my Etsy Shop

Second winner - Emily Hughes - $10 gift certificate to my Etsy Shop

Congratulations to you both :)

17 weeks 2 days!

Check out this photo belly progression! Wow what a change since last week! 

I have been checking the baby's heartbeat everyday and it has been steadily strong and I will never get sick of that wonderful sound :) The post before this has a video of the heartbeat - in case you missed it :) We find out the gender on Monday!!! I am SOOOO excited! I still really feel like I am having a girl but I will not be upset if it's a boy either :) I just want a baby on Earth! That is all :) I can't wait to buy the babies first outfit :)

Gabby has been especially cuddly lately I decided to take some pictures and a really short video of her today because I think it is so cute how she gets as close to my belly as possible no matter what position I am sitting in :)

Holiday Ornament Swap / Video / ABC paintings

First off make sure to check out the Remembering Together Swap for the ornament exchange! If you didn't participate last year you should this year! It is a true blessing to receive something for your angel(s). You can fill out a form for each of your angels if you want (just realize you will make the same amount of ornaments as you receive). Click on the button below to go to the page - the form to fill out can be found there!

Deadline is Nov. 18th to sign up! 
Sorry for the rush but a group of us took this on as the lovely BLM who ran it last year was unable to this year. 

Thought I would share a video I made of my sweet babies' heartbeat :) Hope you enjoy it! He/she had a nice and strong heartbeat!!

So funny that even though I made that long VLOG post the other week I STILL hate the sound of my voice on video even when it's just a couple times on this video LOL ;)

Here are the ABC paintings I have completed so far :)

Alphabet Paintings for Tater Tot's room :)

FIRST OF ALL! Check out my BLM discounts in my Etsy Store by clicking HERE!

So I bought these 4 inch x 4 inch canvases in packs back in July. They were normally $40 (for 9 canvases) and I got FOUR packs of them for $40 !!! Yeaaaa! I had NO clue what I would do with Cornerstone Pay them but then I remembered my cousin's kids LOVE the alphabet. Obviously were not babies when they started loving the alphabet - they were like 2 - but still it will be art that can be used in our child's room for years :)

So I had 35 canvases which is obviously PLENTY to do the alphabet! I was THRILLED when I thought of my idea! Sooo I drew up all the ideas and then painted the backgrounds of all the canvases. Here's what I have so far!

Airplane, Balloons, Crab, Dog, Elephant, Frog, Goldfish, Hamburger

Ice Cream, Jack-O-Lantern, Kite, Ladybug, Moon, Nest, Owl, Penguin

Queen, Robot, Snail, Turtle, Umbrella, Viper, Watermelon, Xylophone
Yellow jacket, Zebra

The end goal is to attach the 7 letters in each of the 4 rows with a thin piece of board that the canvases will be screwed into. The last 2 openings will contain one little canvas that says "Now I know my ABC's" and another that says "next time won't you sing with me" :)

As I get more finished, I'll post more pictures!!! 

What does everyone think!??!

If you would like a hand painted canvas I am always willing to do custom art - email me through here or check out my Etsy store and remember - BLMs get a discount on some pieces: check them out here!

People have asked me questions to get a better idea of what they think I am having so here are some things that may help :) including a baby bump picture from a couple days ago :)

- I have had some heartburn but not much
- no morning sickness
- baby had a strong heart beat last Thursday of 153 :)

Oh and I DID do a VLOG last night for Angie's Still life with circles - video blog round up. It was terrifying but feel free to check it out if you like - it was the post before this one :)
