So much has changed too! A baby is on the way!</title><content type='html'>That&#39;s right. At last our prayers have been answered. After 3 previous losses and much heartache over the last 4 years, we were blessed to find out we are expecting a healthy baby!!&amp;nbsp; I am currently 28 weeks&amp;nbsp;(as of tomorrow!)&amp;nbsp;and feeling wonderful. I couldn&#39;t be any happier :) &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Here is a bit about my journey to this point and what we are having :D.............................&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Back in February, I decided to take my health care and fertility into my own hands. After a lot of research on the losses I experienced very early on with 3 babies (6 weeks, 8 weeks and 11 weeks), I knew that there must be something my body was lacking. The answer seemed to be &quot;progesterone&quot;.&amp;nbsp; I was determined, hopeful and nervous to approach my OB about this. To my surprise she easily agreed and had me start it the very next cycle. She warned me that it may take up to 6 months to get that positive test and not to fret. Well, that very next month, I was feeling extremely emotional. It was Steve that came home from&amp;nbsp;a quick errand&amp;nbsp;and&amp;nbsp;tossed 2 pregnancy tests to me laying in bed feeling grumping and napping. He insisted that it was time I took one. He knew something was up! &lt;br /&gt;I rolled my eyes and decided to give it a try. To my surprise 2 little faint lines appeared on the test and later on they became darker. I thought, &quot;uh, oh- here we go again.&quot;&amp;nbsp;We immediately called the OB&#39;s office to schedule a blood draw. This is always where it went bad before. I would have my blood drawn and it would show me pregnant, but after follow up draws, my levels would decrease and I would miscarry. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That very afternoon they called me to report that my levels were very high and everything looked really good, but I had to have the dreadful 48 hour check to see if my HCG levels had risen. To my surprise 48 hours they had more than doubled!&amp;nbsp; We were then scheduled for a 6.5 week Ultrasound to check viability. That word. &quot;Viability&quot; made my stomach churn with fear. I prayed and prayed that this baby would stick and I would finally have my baby. After what seemed to be a very long 2.5 weeks, we went in for that US. Nervous, frightened, scared.....I was hesitant to even look at the screen until the US tech told me I should look :)&amp;nbsp; This is what we saw: &lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WifqkrIXcnI/TnKG9-UkG3I/AAAAAAAAI8M/LXtr9bCLJt4/s1600/image0.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;238&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WifqkrIXcnI/TnKG9-UkG3I/AAAAAAAAI8M/LXtr9bCLJt4/s320/image0.jpg&quot; width=&quot;320&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;That&#39;s right. A baby. A teeny-tiny baby, with a heart already flickering away. My eyes welled up with tears, Steve and I were in awe. This was really happening. This feeling was combined with fear. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Fear that this little miracle growing inside me would go away, or be taken away. It was still too early to be too excited OR get my hopes up too much. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;This was the most difficult part- excitement combined with fear. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Well, that little bean grew. At 8.5 weeks I had a teeny-tiny spot of blood show up in my underwear and I FREAKED. My OB rushed me in within the hour for an emergency ultrasound. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;The entire way over to the clinic I cried, I thought &quot;it&quot; was happening....all over again.&amp;nbsp; &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;But once again, my prayers were answered and we were given wonderful news that our baby was more than fine and we were even able to&lt;strong&gt; hear&lt;/strong&gt; the heart beating at just 8.5 weeks. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;We were sent along our way with this photo of our sweet little baby. We were amazed how much the baby had grown since our last US!&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zaL9gJc5JgA/TnKIdV9MofI/AAAAAAAAI8Q/pIqlLTZbLdM/s1600/image0-1.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;268&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zaL9gJc5JgA/TnKIdV9MofI/AAAAAAAAI8Q/pIqlLTZbLdM/s320/image0-1.jpg&quot; width=&quot;320&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Of course, with this reassurance at the 8.5 week ultrasound, my fear still persisted and my anxiety grew with each day. It broke my mom&#39;s heart that I couldn&#39;t just enjoy being pregnant and instead I was continuously worrying about every little thing.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;I couldn&#39;t help it,&amp;nbsp;I was already in love with this baby and feeling so incredibly&amp;nbsp;vulnerable to&amp;nbsp;my emotions. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;During this time, I only experienced mild pregnancy symptoms- little to no morning sickness (which worried me of course, lol) and I was just mostly tired and emotional.&amp;nbsp; The 1st trimester seemed to take the longest. I wanted to get to the 2nd trimester so I could feel more at ease that my baby was going to survive. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;We made it. At my 12 week appointment, just to calm my nerves, my OB broke out their old ancient&amp;nbsp;ultrasound machine and let&amp;nbsp; me take a peek at my growing baby.&amp;nbsp;Of course, more tears followed, and I couldn&#39;t believe how much&amp;nbsp;it was already looking like a little baby. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Here is the baby at just 12 weeks :)&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Sitting cross-legged, smug, totally chill....... as if to tell me, &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&quot;It&#39;s okay, momma, I am totally comfortable in here and not going to go&amp;nbsp;anywhere!&quot; &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s01wLIDqgms/TnKP-FBv7wI/AAAAAAAAI8U/ttFAxBMy4AQ/s1600/11+weeks+5+days.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s01wLIDqgms/TnKP-FBv7wI/AAAAAAAAI8U/ttFAxBMy4AQ/s320/11+weeks+5+days.jpg&quot; width=&quot;272&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;After this appointment, I learned my chances of miscarrying were less than 5% and this gave me great hope and comfort. Though I relaxed a bit more, I still worried daily and even called a few times to the OB&#39;s office asking to come in and listen to the heartbeat....just so I could put my worries to rest for a bit longer.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;The next 8 weeks seemed to take the longest. I wanted to find out who this little being was growing inside of me. Was it a &quot;she&quot; or was it a &quot;he&quot;.&amp;nbsp; We did a little baby shopping during this time, even though part of me felt extremely nervous to buy things as I worried it would &quot;jinx&quot; my pregnancy. So we only bought a few gender neutral things. I decided that it was good to have a few things to look at, touch and day dream with. It was positive and kept me looking forward, not dwelling on &quot;what could happen&quot; so much. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;I continued to feel well during my 1st and then my 2nd trimester, only experiencing a lot of fatigue and tiredness. Because we work from home, I was lucky to be able to take a daily afternoon nap to recharge my batteries. I am grateful for such a patient husband who was always considerate of this and suggested I rest often. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;It was during this time I started to notice my stomach growing. I was so excited and this was really a sign to me that all was well and I really was going to be this child&#39;s mother. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Me at 15 weeks (just barely a bump, but this girl was SO proud of that barely-there bump!)-&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mv0_UUGwrzc/TnK1_LTSNdI/AAAAAAAAI8Y/QxTjTbqBth4/s1600/15+weeks.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mv0_UUGwrzc/TnK1_LTSNdI/AAAAAAAAI8Y/QxTjTbqBth4/s320/15+weeks.jpg&quot; width=&quot;307&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;A couple weeks later at 17 weeks, growing even more. Even more excited about this little growing baby and falling more and more in love- feeling less and less anxious, but unfortunately all that worry was&amp;nbsp;still there.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YOuPvz_slc0/TnK2The9J8I/AAAAAAAAI8c/vCBV8OVS1uA/s1600/annalee+copy.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-YOuPvz_slc0/TnK2The9J8I/AAAAAAAAI8c/vCBV8OVS1uA/s320/annalee+copy.jpg&quot; width=&quot;217&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;The week before our Anatomy scan and gender reveal felt like a year away. I was SO excited to see how much my baby had grown and find out the gender, so nervous to know if everything was developing properly and SO anxious to just know!&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;The ultrasound was the most terrifying experience. It was long and silent and I had no idea what the ultrasound tech was doing or taking photos of. Was my baby okay, was everything the way it should be?!&amp;nbsp; After she thoroughly examined each and every part, she would report.....brain is normal, heart is normal, liver, kidneys---all normal. She commented that she was happy to leave our appointment and say that she saw a healthy baby. Thank you LORD! My prayers have been answered and for that I&#39;ll be forever grateful. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Our baby was healthy..&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;The very last thing she told us......in her exact words...&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;(Looking at Steve) &lt;em&gt;&quot;You had&amp;nbsp;better buy yourself a shot gun! Because you are going to have a daughter!&quot;&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;I was absolutely thrilled. I would have been happy with either gender, but to hear that we were having a GIRL made me feel ecstatic. I was even more ecstatic that she was HEALTHY! &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;She was so pretty already, her little button nose and tiny face. I was more in love than ever before. I felt so grateful and blessed. I couldn&#39;t stop looking at my ultrasound photo for weeks. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;We had 2 names picked out since we found out we were pregnant. I always knew if I had a little girl I would name her after my beloved Grandma Ann. My grandma Ann meant the world to me and when I lost her to cancer almost 10 years ago, I knew one day I would honor her by naming my daughter after her. I now had that chance.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Meet Annalee Grace at just 19 weeks&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--ajymBVKUf0/TnK4pIkgc7I/AAAAAAAAI8g/-4AKXDG6WKY/s1600/Top.bmp.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;297&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--ajymBVKUf0/TnK4pIkgc7I/AAAAAAAAI8g/-4AKXDG6WKY/s400/Top.bmp.jpg&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Only a couple weeks after my ultrasound appointment, I started feeling her move. One evening I was sitting on the sofa resting, watching tv and I felt the most strangest sensation. Like something flipped in my stomach. It startled me,&amp;nbsp;and&amp;nbsp;in that moment I flew off the couch. Steve and I both had a great laugh. I felt her a few more times that night and I was in awe. It&#39;s the most wonderful feeling to feel the baby you are carrying shift and move in your womb. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Of course, with this new &quot;movement&quot; thing came worries on the days where she didn&#39;t move as much. Was she okay? I worried like crazy. My thoughtful mother in law gifted us with the most wonderful gift- a portable home fetal doppler. I could now listen to my baby girl&#39;s heart rate and check on her anytime I started to worry. The day I received this wonderful gift, I could not wait to try it out.&amp;nbsp; Steve and I found her heartbeat immediately (we knew at that time what was her normal heart rate due to all of our OB appointments- so we knew what to look for). It was so satisfying and also really a neat bonding experience. There the clopping, rocking, ticking sound was for me to hear and I could then relax and know that she was alright. This little piece of equipment has been the BIGGEST sanity saver. Otherwise I would be calling my OB&#39;s office weekly to ask to hear her heartbeat.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;And...this growing baby bump has me believing, it really is happening...&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uRKr_sS9o9U/TnK9TCxbJcI/AAAAAAAAI8w/1B-UC12nBEY/s1600/IMG_5743.JPG&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-uRKr_sS9o9U/TnK9TCxbJcI/AAAAAAAAI8w/1B-UC12nBEY/s320/IMG_5743.JPG&quot; width=&quot;293&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Now that I am 1 day away from 28 weeks, I am not finding the need to use my Doppler as much. &amp;nbsp;I literally feel her kick me all day off and on and I can&#39;t help but to feel comfort in that :)&amp;nbsp; She&#39;s already developing her awake and sleep patterns. She wakes early around 4 am kicking me, rolling, moving around and then falls back asleep around 9 am until 11:30 am. She kicks and rolls throughout the day, but I really feel her get active at about 8:30 pm and until 12 pm at night. I love reading before bedtime and resting my hand on my stomach and feeling her little bumps and kicks....some nights she has the hiccups and my stomach bumps up and down in a repetitive motion for about 3 minutes. Poor baby- it&#39;s all that dark chocolate your momma is craving right now :)&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;I also purchased a &quot;lullabelly&quot; and this allows me to safely play classical music to her. So far, she&#39;s only listened to Mozart. It&#39;s suppose to calm babys and make them smarter. Plus I hope that she adores music one day as much as her parents do. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;We have had a blast creating her nursery. It&#39;s something I&#39;ve dreamed about since I was a little girl. Like most girls dream of their wedding, I remember thinking of my baby nursery. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;We are still adding finishing touches, but it&#39;s coming along beautifully.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;My inspiration for her nursery came from this designer: &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.alittlesweetness.etsy.com/&quot;&gt;www.alittlesweetness.etsy.com&lt;/a&gt;. I bought prints and based the color scheme&amp;nbsp;around them. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PmABkmtYwAY/TnK7WgxrmdI/AAAAAAAAI8k/DOcq-9m5kA4/s1600/IMG_5865.JPG&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;640&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PmABkmtYwAY/TnK7WgxrmdI/AAAAAAAAI8k/DOcq-9m5kA4/s640/IMG_5865.JPG&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;Steve has spent many hours painting, adding crown molding and decorative touches around the room- not to mention all of the assembling of the crib, changing table, chair, dollhouse book shelf... I am grateful he is so handy and so willing to do so. He loves&amp;nbsp;his baby girl already and it&amp;nbsp;is SO heartwarming&amp;nbsp;:)&amp;nbsp; Dad assisted him on Saturday afternoon in hanging the beautiful chandelier and crown molding.

June was a big month for custom orders. I counted this morning and we created over 60 individual custom orders. I couldn&#39;t believe my eyes. I have just sort of kept my head down and plowed ahead this month as I worked through each order. It was great through each custom order to try something different, a new color combination....a challenge.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to share some of my favorites. Okay, all 60+ are my favorite, but I thought I should narrow it down a bit ;)&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Enjoy all of the fun new designs! We are always taking custom orders, we tend to book in advance about 4-6 weeks, so if this post inspires you for a project and you want custom buttons, contact me and I&#39;ll get you on the schedule!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;{Cars--A custom order to match the fabric the buttons are shown here with.

I am sure most of you are feeling the weather shift. It has been in the&amp;nbsp;80&#39;s here in Central Oregon. We are enjoying the sunny blue skies and our garden is loving it!&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;Leslie reported rain and thunder in her neck of the woods, but that didn&#39;t stop her today from tweeting that she was out in the pool aspiring to be a water ballerina.&amp;nbsp; Leslie tweeted today: &quot;kinda hard to be a water ballerina with a thunderstorm&quot; &lt;span class=&quot;goog-spellcheck-word&quot; style=&quot;background: yellow;&quot;&gt;hehe&lt;/span&gt;. Her tweets always put a smile on my face! You can follow her here :) &lt;a href=&quot;http://twitter.com/LeslieAshe&quot;&gt;http://twitter.com/&lt;span class=&quot;goog-spellcheck-word&quot; style=&quot;background: yellow;&quot;&gt;LeslieAshe&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Aside from pirouettes in the pool....;)&amp;nbsp;Leslie has created a gorgeous &lt;span class=&quot;goog-spellcheck-word&quot; style=&quot;background: yellow;&quot;&gt;scrapbooking&lt;/span&gt; layout using our &quot;Raspberry Vine Buttons&quot; These buttons are a jumbo 1.5 inches in size perfect for embellishing a knitted hat, hair bow, sweater, handmade bag and like Leslie did.....a scrapbook layout!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.etsy.com/listing/48081724/raspberry-vine-jumbo-size-handmade&quot;&gt;~Raspberry Vine Buttons~&lt;/a&gt; &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kF3WdRmW5zg/TCkxSi8RYyI/AAAAAAAAEZU/VYm8xq1PYhY/s1600/Collages8-13.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; ru=&quot;true&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kF3WdRmW5zg/TCkxSi8RYyI/AAAAAAAAEZU/VYm8xq1PYhY/s320/Collages8-13.jpg&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;I love how Leslie picked up the colors from the girls&#39; dresses and designed her layout around them. She included her &lt;span class=&quot;goog-spellcheck-word&quot; style=&quot;background: yellow;&quot;&gt;journaling&lt;/span&gt; creatively around the border of her fancy cut paper and grouped the buttons along with the title and some other fun embellishments to ground her design.

If you are using fabric, you can top-stitch the folded edges for a more finished look. Once that is done, fold one of the shortest edges under 1/4 of an inch (wrong sides facing) and press. Three of the four sides should be folded over now.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;250&quot; qu=&quot;true&quot; src=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4.jpg&quot; width=&quot;320&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Remove plastic Crystal Light label from the plastic container. Once label is removed, using your foam brush, brush the Mod Podge directly on to the Crystal Light plastic container. Make sure you get it good from top to bottom. Once the Mod Podge is on, line up the unfolded edge of the fabric or paper with the center of one side of the container. Gently stretch the paper/fabric around the container pulling tight so there are no wrinkles all the way around until you get to where you started. The folded edge should overlap the raw edge a little. Add a little Mod Podge to the end of the fabric (the folded seam) and press with your finger in place.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4-1.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; qu=&quot;true&quot; src=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4-1.jpg&quot; width=&quot;270&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;{OPTIONAL:} You can use Mod Podge to seal the fabric or paper once it is on the container. If using paper, I recommend putting another coat on top of the paper. It is optional with fabric as the Mod Podge will make the fabric stiff.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Once that is done, take your ribbon and seal or treat the ends of the ribbon. You can use either Fray Check or heat sealing it using a lighter. This will prevent the ribbon from fraying. Once that is done, brushMod Podge on the backside of the ribbon. Repeat the lining up process you did for the fabric/paper until the ribbon overlaps like the fabric did. You can place the ribbon anywhere you want on the container. I chose the top portion of the container. Set aside to dry.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4-2.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; qu=&quot;true&quot; src=&quot;http://www.priddycreations.com/crystallight4-2.jpg&quot; width=&quot;301&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;{OPTIONAL:}&lt;br /&gt;While that is drying, take your coordinating thread and feed through your button as many times as it takes to get the desired look. Make sure you cut enough thread to leave tails long enough to tie in knots (at least one inch extra for each end). I wound mine around about 4 times for a thicker threaded look. Once you get the look you are going for, tie at the back 2 or 3 times and snip close to knots.
