She Will Be Loved!


I have so many projects to share from school today. . . but I have news that just can't wait! We are  having a baby girl! This is a picture of me and Nick when we found out we were expecting. My mother in law lives a few states away so I made her this little onesie that says "I Love Nana", we propped the camera on our cabinet, set the timer and ran to get us both in the picture.
Take 1: We obviously have to work on our parenting skills!

Take 2: Much better!



After we got the news I asked Nick "what kinds of things will you do with a girl?" He said without hesitating "I'll bring her fishing and to Phillies games!" I already have a cabinet in the kitchen filled with art supplies for her and we just inherited a beautiful piano that I would love to play with her or for her. We'll see what she will be. She will be loved for sure!

WHOO HOO! I was wondering when we were going to get this news on your blog!!! I'm so excited for you! What a wonderful job to be a mommy of a sweet mini! This will be the best thing you have ever done! Can I add anymore exclamation points!!!!! REALLY is wish you the calm and rest in the upcoming months as you get ready to welcome the best education you will ever get. Kids make you look at your world differently. You will be a better teacher, and person because of your mini.

Erica I just started reading through all of your blogs. This of course is my favorite one!! All of your blog/friends (is that right?) are so inspiring and pleasant.
What a great release to have a hobby like this. I assume when Stella makes her debut it will cut into blog time for awhile...but here's a thought; I will babysit
Love you and hope the Food Fair is a great success! xo mom
