I committed...

Or maybe I should be committed. Either way, I finally broke down and bought a sewing machine. After years of getting projects ready and then finding an excuse to use my mom's machine, I cracked into my saved birthday money and bought this little beauty.

I am excited to say the least and I just get excited thinking about everything that I want to make for the kiddos...

So, we still haven't decorated Ileigh's room. Chris' bonus this month is going towards it, so I have been thinking more about what I am going to do...

Wouldn't this be cute if it said "sweet pea"? :)

 I hope Aunt Lynz can recreate something like this for us....:)

I want my sweet little girl to be unafraid to be herself. My heart is heavy with thoughts of what she may have to go through when she gets older, so I want to make sure that she knows early that we are proud of who she is; who God designed her to be. I spent too many years trying to figure out what everyone else wanted from me...I just want her to know that no matter what, her daddy and I love her. I pray that she looks to find contentment in her faith and not from the people around her.

Anyway, I am still on the hunt for fabric and other decor, but I thought these things were very fitting for little Miss Ileigh, who by the way had her 4 month check-up today. The nurse walked in and called her a princess and I almost corrected her...a small victory for a woman who is constantly trying to bite her tongue. I just am not into the whole "princess" scares me, actually! Ha!
