Cuz I’m posting a very scary picture…

32 weeks

I’m a little shocked by this picture. I didn’t think I was this big :(

Anybody know of ways to flip a breech baby? Cuz baby B is feet first dang it and the flashlight trick is not working!

On another note, I wanted to post about the crib skirts I made:

I followed this tutorial, although a tutorial really isn’t necessary. All you do is measure the length of the sides of the crib and how long you want your skirt to be.  Hem the pieces, and sew them to a rectangular piece of fabric (in this case I used my leftover curtain liner) and you’re done. Quickest project I ever did. The fabric is Premier Prints Waverly in charcoal.

The Curtains

For the curtains I used Premier Prints yellow zig zag fabric. I just love a good chevron! I basically wanted this fabric in every color. Thanks Fabric.com!

To make lined grommet curtains, I used this tutorial then followed the manufacturers instructions on the back of the grommet package. The hardest part was by far measuring out the distance between the grommets. I didn’t realize how much fabric is necessary to make curtains. To make four panels at 85 inches, it took 11 yards of fabric! It came out to be $36 a panel, which isn’t Ikea cheap, but isn’t Restoration Hardware expensive either. It is pretty easy to find a Fabric.com coupon code online, so you can save money there (wish I discovered that sooner).

Just gotta sew two crib bumpers then I’m done. But dreading dreading dreading…

    Maybe when baby A comes out baby B will have so much room they can flip him. They tried with Gavin but with him being 10lbs he just couldn’t budge. And I so wanted you in a bandana and dreads for that picture with your titile. WOZA is all I can say your poor back!!! Still your stinking cute.
