I started off making my soon-to-be new cousin Ashley (she is marrying my cousin Brandon in June and she's awesome!) a cute little clutch. You see, I promised to be a lot more active in helping her with wedding prep, as I know how stressful it can be. Then we found out about Lukas' heart defect and I became less than helpful. And I felt bad. I wanted to do something nice for her to tell her I was sorry, especially considering how often she texts me just to say she is thinking of me and Lukas or comments on my Facebook posts to say she can't wait to meet him. She totally rocks. It was my first attempt at ever creating something of this nature, but it turned out pretty cute despite some its imperfections. I even made her a customized little label with her and Brandon's names and their wedding date. Just so she would always have something to remind her of that magical moment in their lives when she looked inside. I even tried super hard to find some fabric(s) that matched her wedding colors.
I also made Lukas some soft soled crib shoes. They are so tiny and sweet that I just want to eat them up. I can't wait until sweet little newborn feet fill them. The ones in the middle are totally seamless and reversible. I finally figured out how to do it!! So more will be coming his way, I assure you.

So now, Tuesday is but a blink away. Its going to be a long appointment, but I am excited to see my sweet boy on ultrasound again. They are doing another growth scan so I am desperately looking forward to seeing how his growth has changed and how big he might be right now, even if it is just an estimate. They are doing another echo too, so I am excited to see that magical little heart fluttering away on the screen and watching it pump so perfectly right now despite its imperfections. I don't really dread these appointment anymore, which I feel is good. Even though I know the appointments are going to be long and the drive downtown in rush hour traffic isn't exactly my idea of a good time, its all for the greater good. Its all part of motions that will eventually land my beautiful boy right in my arms. And I can't wait because its going to be amazing.
So my friends, have a beautiful rest of the day. Hopefully the sun is shining and its warmer in your neck of the woods than it is in mine =) Keep smiling friends and keep on praying for our tiny Lukas!
P.S. - can you believe we are going to be 30 weeks tomorrow?? AHHH!
