A boy is now 1!

On Wednesday a good friend's little boy turns 1! But they celebrated his birthday on Saturday...

It is amazing how quickly little babies grow!

Zoo Membership

Yeah... I caved in today when waiting in line to get into the zoo. It was incredibly busy. Thank you, Spring Break! Nikolai was not at all thrilled with having to wait in line to get in to see the animals. He kept turning around to look at me and say, "go inside? see animals?" Of course when I responded with a yes, but we needed to wait he thought that was a cue to start getting out of his stroller and head to the entrance. Some people waiting in line thought it was cute. I did not.

But it was at the same time.

He hasn't been through the zoo in a while. It's expensive and a bit of a drive. But as I was doing the math, the cost of a zoo membership for all three of us, if Brandon or I was to take him to the zoo at least another 3 times this year (until next March) we will have gotten our money's worth. If all 3 of us go, we only need about another 1.5 times. Not too bad. And it will give us something to do with Nikolai once baby girl comes along, maybe get in some parent and little man time in as well.

Ideas for Baby Girl's Quilt

I have been brainstorming pinterest for ideas for a quilt for baby girl.  I am thinking something with HST or some sort of chevron design. I really like the chevron design. But then, who doesn't? It is so extremely popular right now it seems. But Brandon thinks it is a bit boring. But who knows what I will end up doing?

It seems that so many people are doing this bloglovin thing... And am I jumping on this bandwagon too? I just want to see what it is all about! I do know that some of the blogs I follow do not show up in blogger dashboard, but do in my google reader and they do through this.... hmm... silly Jessica, giving in to the propaganda in my head... ;P

The Need to Craft

I feel as if I am going to go crazy! I have taken two scary naps today because I just sat down and passed out! Them being scary because Nikolai was up and awake. The first one he managed to dump left over cereal onto the floor. The second one he had managed to get into the candy container on the counter and sneak out a werther's original. But after a week with 2 stressfull IEPs, prep/planning and having a formal observation, and still trying to get stuff unpacked, I feel that I need to just do something that doesn't involve work, cleaning, unpacking and is just fun. I need to be creative and to be crafty!

Falling for Fabric

I went to the Tucson Modern Quilt Guild meeting this evening and I am so glad that I joined. Just being around people with this interest is nice. To share ideas and to hear ideas is wonderful. Not to mention it is in a quilt/sewing/fabric shop! How fun is it to be able to look at fabric for a few hours, admire the beauty of quilts, and touch the softness of it? Wonderful!

It's Been a While...

Almost 2 weeks... Things have been crazy! But I am excited that I finally have internet access here at the house! Yay! We don't have everything officially moved from the old place yet, but we do have everything out of the house. Now it is just yard ... cars and car parts and everything cars, well at least as it seems anyway. I am We are not yet done unpacking. I am finally starting to feel mostly better from being sick since the 23rd of February. But that also means I have a done of catch-up at work to do including IEP meetings and 2 new students to do transfer meetings for... Eeek! So much! Thank goodness Spring Break starts Saturday! :)

Our Little Peanut is....

So exited! It feels a little surreal...

71% of you guessed right! Out of the 14 votes, 10 of you thought it was going to be a girl! Yay, so glad you were right! Of course, I would be glad either way. :)
Now we will have the best of both worlds. :)
