Last Friday I had the opportunity and the honor to go with my daughter and son-in-law to the doctor as they had their first visit since she found out she was pregnant again. Some of you may remember we lost their first child last November. So when she got pregnant again of course we are being cautiously optimistic that this child will not have the same problem as out little Alexander did. So Friday we got to see the sonogram and our first peek had our mouths dropping open. Tricia is carrying twins. Oh my! One child will turn their lives upside down and two will put them in a tail spin. I've never had twins but I know how much work one child is at a time. I can't imagine two. It's a little too early to tell if there are any genetic abnormalities but as soon as the 20 weeks comes I'm sure they will be testing given her history. She's at 14+ weeks right now. So I made her this card last night to kind of celebrate.
I used a retired Gina K set called Wee Tees. The sentiment and the lady bug and car are from the same set. I framed them with Spellbinder's Edge Frames. And the little car and lady bug are die cut with Spellbinder's Heart Circles. I paper pieced the onesies with my MISTI.
I am entering these challenges:
- Crafting by Designs: pink and girly (well at least half of it is!)
- Inspiration Destination: anything goes
- A Bit More Time to Craft challenge: anything goes
- Hiding in my Craft Room: super scraps Saturday
With the news of the twins I am thinking I may have to retire a bit earlier than expected. Tricia's due date is November 11th. But with twins I doubt they wait that long. And she delivered Alex two months early. So I'll discuss this with my boss when I go back to work tomorrow. But I doubt that I work until December like I thought I would. We are just hoping and praying for happy, healthy babies right now. Thanks for stopping by today for my news. Make it a wonderful week!
