Emerging from the morning sickness abyss

One ginger step in front of another, I am finally shaking off the green cobwebs of morning sickness and reentering L I F E. Of course it's not quite over yet, but it's finally relegated to the late evening. {hurray!} Little Peanut seems to be doing well; we should be discovering whether boy or girl next month.

It's a good thing we are expecting Little Peanut, because it is so hard to resist the urge to snatch all the cute little wee ones that surround me in public places. Just one little sniff of the baby cranium? Please?

One of our church friends recently had a precious little girl, so I mustered up all my energy to entertain my creative side to make a little gift, that creative side that had all but shriveled up during my incarceration that was Morning Sickness. :)

Here it is, the sweet little diaper cake:

Detail shots:

This project was a joint venture with both my daughters, as they helped me roll up the diapers, helped with the photos, and "supervised". Amanda especially feels proud of her contribution. She said to no one in particular, "You can't even buy this in the store." Yep, I think she's caught the bug.

We'll be delivering the diaper cake some time this week - I hope they like it!

It's beautiful! So glad for you that the morning sickness is abating! Have a wonderful day! Kim

Jeanne said...

Wonderful! And how special that your daughter's helped in its creation!

I'm glad the morning sickness is easing up a bit. I'm thankful I didn't have too much of a problem with it when I was pregnant.

Stay healthy and happy!

Welcome back to blogging. You've been missed!

Good to hear that you are getting back to "normal." Well, at least as normal as you can be while pregnant. I am really impressed with the diaper cake. Though I must admit, when I first read what it was I immediately thought it was made from used diapers :-p Things are going well here in Vegas. My dad is fine and I am inching closer to graduating (FINALLY!). Miss you Noona. Hopefully we can see each other soon.
