Nine, Nine in 'Oh Nine!

So Brian and I will be married 9 years and are expecting our first child the ninth month of 2009 (September 5th). I don't believe in luck but if I did, I'd say that our lucky number is NINE! We are very excited to announce this wonderful blessing. We thank God every day for his perfect timing and for our exciting addition to our family in the future. I've attached a current photo of me at 14 weeks. I've created this blog for our friends and family to keep up with us. I'll do my best to update as often as possible. We're leaving for Savannah and Hilton Head next week so hopefully I'll have some new photos to post then. I'll also start an update of the baby growing. Next week will be 4 months so I'll keep up with the progress according to months. I fully expect to balloon but as long as I feel great (and I have so far), I don't care; well, not too much anyway.

I had no idea you had a blog. Hope you don't mind. I added it to my favorites. I didn't see any place to be a "follower" on yours. Your blog is beootiful!!!!
As you are! AND, I didn't know you were expecting. We had Erin after 9 years of marriage!

After reading your other comments, it's never occurred to me that Erin was born on the 9th year we were married and she weighed EXACTLY 9 lbs.! Wow!

I just read your comment on my exposure2009 blog. I came back here to take a closer look at your quilt and your bedding. First of all, I absolutely love the baby bed and the bedding and quilt are gorgeous, too. Your mother told me many, many years ago that you were making baby quilts. I believe you can do anything you put your mind to! I see that you used the Minkee fabric. How does it sew? I've never sewn with it before but I just love the look and the softness of it and mixing it with other fabrics like you did. I'm so glad you're keeping in touch. Mary's having a boy in May? Is that right? So I'm going to guess that you have a boy, too, for some reason. I don't know why. And I see Rebecca on FB. That girl is beautiful. Is she still interested in drawing, art, etc.? Looks like she's just having a good time right now which is probably what most of us did at her age! ha! I will keep up with you here. Love.
