Baby boy

Here he is! Just look at that sweet face :)

It's a....

We had our ultrasound today and found out we are having a BOY!!! The pictures are downstairs, so I will post one of the cute little guy a little later. But trust me, he is SUPER cute. The ultra-sound tech AND the doctor both said that he was the most photo-genic babies they have seen in a long time. It's a good thing...because his mama likes to blog :)

Decorating our pumpkin

Quinn's Aunt Julie sent her a foam sticker set to decorate her pumpkin. She really wanted to pull the stickers OFF instead of putting them on, so I helped her...a lot.

I love the double finger point...haha. Where did she learn that? I think she was pointing out his nose....

I told her to go stand by her pumpkin and she actually did! But she failed to make the super cute smile I told her to do also. One out of two isn't bad.

Family Photos

Here's a little taste of the family pictures we had done on Saturday. I'm sure Dave will get his hands on these and make them better...maybe without my red nose (it was pretty chilly Saturday morning). But I thought these ones turned out cute!!

#2 is maybe sticking out a little too much in this shot :)

For those of you who know what an "Amber face" is--check out Quinn in this picture!!

Chris did an AWESOME job of getting Quinn to smile. This time he tried playing peek-a-boo, but she wanted to play too

Just a sweet shot of Dave lassoing at the corn maze


Yesterday we were at the grocery store walking into the produce section when out of nowhere Quinn says 'banana.' the whole word!! She usually just says 'baba.' it is so cute i thought i'd get it on video.

Kelsey, Norah, Am, and Quinn

I know....three posts in one day??!! That's a lot, even for me! My friend Kelsey was in town for the weekend (not really...was it even 24 hours??) but here we are with our babies

Family Pictures

We took some family pictures at a park downtown this morning. Here is Quinn walking with the new elephant Grandma Keller brought her.

daddy and Quinn looking cute

This was the cutest shot we got of her with our camera. Once we get the other pictures I'll put up one of the whole family!

Another day at the Pumpkin Patch

Grandma and Grandpa Keller are in town so we spent the weekend with them and Chris and Sarah. Here's grandma and daddy and Quinn at the Pumpkin patch.

She's saying "moo."

Quinn getting a chance to ride on the cow with daddy.

She really liked sitting on this saddle.

Here we are together on the saddle.

Quinn and me by the corn

My mom got this pattern and fabric for me while she was here. It is a crayon/crayon book bag.

Big Mess

You can tell I've been sewing when my craft room looks like this! You can even see the overwhelmed look on Quinn's face when we walked in there this morning...

Cute outfit, huh?? I've been waiting FOREVER for this dress to fit her. I got it when she was a newborn because it was SO CUTE. It's really hard to find baby stuff in was a great find. Plus I think it was only 97 cents at Target. I would have paid a lot more than that!!!

Pattern book

for those of you who were wondering about the pattern book: Winsome Baby, Art to Heart by Nancy Halvorsen


I know this picture is blurry....but it was too cute to pass up. Quinn likes to pretend to take a nap--here she is doing that while we sat on the futon together reading books.

This is a little bit better picture of my baby bump. That picture from the pumpkin patch made me look bigger than I am (I think it was the shirt...when I wore it around my mom, she told me to suck in!!!).

New bag

My friend April loaned me a pattern book last weekend--it has this bag pattern in it--cute huh?

I've had a couple people ask me about which pattern book this is from: Winsome Baby, Art to Heart by Nancy Halvorsen. There area probably at least 5 other CUTE things I want to make from this book!!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch today. Quinn had a lot of fun. Look at Daddy and Quinn's matching cute.

Sometimes Quinn thinks she can get she is giving it a try.

The family.

Two little pumpkins....yes, I'm huge

Quinn thought she'd try some pumpkin...

Hmm..maybe this one's better??

maybe about the same?

Quinn and Levi

I feel like I've been horrible about taking pictures this week! Yesterday we went to the park with Sarah and Ellie and Levi. I forgot to take pictures at the park--but here are a couple that I took after we got back to Sarah's house. Quinn is looking up and laughing at Levi who's standing at the top...

Who me??

Take the poll!

I am doing a poll to have you guess what Dave and I are having. I have the ultrasound in two weeks!!! The poll is over to the right...

Quinn saying names

HEre is a video of Quinn saying some names yesterday. Sorry if she didn't say your name, it's hard to think of them on the spot! I just tried to think of people she's seen lately. I love how she comes up with 'Sarah' on her own--and how when I ask her to say 'mommy' she also says 'amber'--and how she just refuses to say 'grandma.'

All dressed up

Look at our big girl!! She is helping me unload the dishwasher after church (since my housekeeper went home to Michigan yesterday) She is actually wearing a dress that my mom got her--so cute on her, huh?

Animal noises

here's quinn performing her animal noises. I couldn't remember all of them that she knew while i was I already realized that I forgot pig, sheep and owl... oops. but these ones are adorable enough :)

Last day with my mom

My mom left this sad. Here are Quinn and 'Marcia' reading books together.

My stroller quilt all done!!! To tell you the truth, I haven't worked on it for a long time because I was frustrated that it wasn't turning out that cute. Then my mom started working on it, and it magically got cuter!!! Thanks mom for working so hard to finish it.

Here it is on a stroller. It ties around the handles and buttons up on the bottom to make a little pocket for their feet....cute huh??

A necklace I made yesterday

Quinn feeding 'Marcia' her fake food. I have a half dozen pictures of her stuffing something in my mom's mouth. My mom couldn't just pretend to eat it, it had to go all the way behind her teeth...

my mom made the necklace and earrings she's wearing too!

busy, busy

I have kept my mom quite busy while she's been here this week. Here are a few pictures of what we've been busy with!! (and my mom's fun new hair color) Here we are making a headboard.

We took turns with the staple gun :)

Finished product. Can you believe that I made this whole headboard for only TWELVE DOLLARS???!!!

Here is my mom working on a stroller quilt that I started months ago. From this tutorial. I will put up a picture when it is all done--it's turning out great since my mom got her hands on it.

can you believe this closet is empty?? It was jam packed with storage (I should have taken a before picture) but we emptied it to prepare the room for baby.

And oh yeah---my sweet, thoughtful, amazing, husband got me this for my birthday.
