Two Weeks Old!

We took these pics on Sunday when he turned 2 weeks. Doesn't he look grown up!? Now he is 8 lbs 9 oz as of this morning! Everyone asks us who he looks like - what do you think?

My First Mother's Day!

Our little Dane made his grand entrance on Mother's Day at 10:32 am. He was 7 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long and we were relieved he is healthy and well. I had been worried about knowing when "its time" but my water broke during the night about 2:30 am and it quickly became clear we needed to get to the hospital. I dialated to an 8 1/2 - 9 very quickly and that is when i got an epidural and i'm glad i did because after that things slowed significantly. it was another 5 hours until he was born. James was really curious about everything and asked a lot of questions and took some pictures that i promptly deleted when i saw. :) But we did get a few good pictures of Dane that first day. Since then we've been more overwhelmed and we need to start taking more pics again. He is absolutely adorable and the pics do not do him justice. But here are some pics from the hospital:

Hopefully this post is coherent because this week has been quite sleepless! We can't wait to introduce him to you all very soon!

Janssen Projects

Below are a couple of pics that my sister Marnie requested. The first are our living room curtains i made a few months back. I'm working on some similar ones (more casual) for the nursery right now..

The second is a pic of the nursery. It doesn't look like much but i should have taken a before and after. We put in new carpet, painted the walls, removed old baseboards, painted and put up new baseboards. I sewed the crib quilt, crib skirt, crib sheet, and changing pad cover. Its just missing some personality/decorations on the walls! Ideas??
