Therefore, all I know is pink, bows, lace, sparkles, ruffles, flowers, etc....
And I'm getting scared I am going to turn my boy into a girl.
It all started with a nursing cover. After finding out the gender of the baby, I was really excited to start making things for him. I never really got to do many projects while I was pregnant with Makenzie because I was working, sick, and had nowhere to put my sewing machine. So, I decided my first project would be a nursing cover. I went to pick out boy fabrics. I decided brown and green were pretty safe colors...but after making it, it suddenly looks so girly. The brown swirls and green polka dots. I guess I will be wearing the nursing cover just as much as the baby will, so I'm safe for this project....
But then I found myself looking into making a car seat cover. I was finding so many with cute ruffles that I started calculating how I could make bows and ruffles look boyish.
Pretty soon I am going to be putting bows in his hair and telling myself it is okay because the bows are blue....
I went to the store yesterday to select some fabric for a baby blanket. I think I did a pretty good job of selecting boy material...but who knows what it will look like by the time I am finished with it!

His little face....
Okay, so he kind of looks like an alien. But, the good news is that he has still has 22 weeks left to turn into a baby face.

Makenzie's favorite would probably have been the Bellagio fountains. But, it was way too windy and so they were not running the shows. So, her favorite was actually the Bellagio Conservatory. They had water that was shooting around and a train.
The shooting water was apparently very funny. Makenzie makes fists with both of her hands when she feels strong emotion. She does it when she is very mad, very happy, when she has brain freeze, etc.
- Yes, most of our pictures were of Makenzie on our anniversary.
-And by the way, last year around our anniversary, I wrote out everything I could remember about the details of me and Nick meeting, dating, and getting married. I put it on a blog to preserve and share it. I think I will try to remember to re-post the link every year on our anniversary because I know that everyone wants to re-read our incredibly long story every single year.http://usfromthestart.blogspot.com/

The picture below is my brother Riley in his wheel chair. Riley was on a mission in Portland, OR. On Thanksgiving he played in a Turkey bowl and slipped on some ice and landed on his neck. He had amnesia and spent a few days in the hospital. He got his memory back, but was having trouble with headaches and leg control. So, he was sent home just a few days before the wedding to heal. He is expected to make a full recovery and return to his mission soon.
