A project 13 weeks in the making...

I know it's been rather quiet here again lately, but I promise I have a good reason this time! I've been working on creating a little miracle! The side effects of this project include extreme fatigue, mood swings, and last but definitely not least, all day long nausea. We are expecting to add baby #2 to our family in January! We got to see our little peanut about 4 weeks ago, and I am thrilled to say that baby was doing well and had a nice strong heartbeat and little wiggling arm and leg buds!
I am more or less terrified of adding baby #2 to our family, but I am ready to take on the challenge!

We wanted to be a little bit sneaky about telling our families this time, since they've been pestering me about adding to our family quite a bit :) If we outright told them, all we would have gotten is "It's about time!" Ha ha.
So I embellished one of Natalie's shirts with "Big Sister" and made these printable magnets with the "Miracle in the Making" image above. I shamelessly stole my inspiration from these frames. We sneakily put them on the refrigerator to see how long it would take to get them to notice. We've been waiting for Bug to give us away for the last few weeks. She's grown fond of saying "There's a baby in my belly!"

They noticed her shirt right away, but the magnet took them a while to catch! They are so happy and excited for us. We just can't wait for January to arrive so we can hold our little bean!
