Ok, sooooooo......I promise to get back to talking about the fabulous world of home decor/design/crafting/DIY/etc. soon, but being that I am so newly pregnant and have been down and out with shingles ever since the day I found out, I haven't really had the chance to be REALLY excited about everything. So, now that I am finally feeling better, I can really celebrate!!!! Yay!!! I am SOOOOOO excited!! As I mentioned before, I have wanted to be a mama for as long as I can remember. Since I was in college (or maybe even before that), I have had a "hope chest" that I have been filling with things from my childhood that I had wanted to save as well as random baby things that I have accumulated over the years. I must mention that the "chest" is rather small. Let me now mention that I will need to get a bigger one!!! Or wait, maybe a chest of drawers for the nursery!!!! Yesssss!!! Oh yeah baby!!! Bun in the oven!!!! Woohoo!! How's that celebrating for ya!!!! LOL

Today, I have to add the following pieces of adorableness......

this adorable little skunk hat!!

these adorable little pants! :)

this wormy!!
(which I bought for both Noah and Hayden before they were born)

and this adorable giraffe jacket (with ears on the hood!!!)

My hubby is in trouble, isn't he??!!!! LOL!!! I know!! So stinkin' cute!! I promised him that I would be conscientious, and that I would not go over board! So....shhhhhh....this is our little secret (and mums the word, Mama V!!! ;) hehee!). For now, I'm sticking to things that can be worn by a boy or a girl - FOR NOW - but I can't wait to find out what we are having. Then the real trouble will begin!!
