The anticipated arrival of our first grandchild is so exciting. The entire house is abuzz with shopping, planning, decorating, preparing for the shower and chatter of the joy to come. Even the boys are coutning down the days until their sweet little niece will be born. William has even picked out what he wants to buy Amelia for her first Christmas.

I have started crocheting a great little sundress for her in size 6 to 12 months. It's from a pattern in a book I have entitled "Crochet with Bits and Pieces". It is turning out so nicely and it's going really quickly. I may make her a couple of them if I like the final outcome. I'll post pictures as soon as it's done.

Miriah and I went shopping for clothes at Walmart, Ross & Old Navy and bought a bunch while everything is on sale for back to school. Her closet is getting overfull. We are going to be painting and hanging wall paper in the nursery over the next two weekends, then we will go baby furniture shopping to stock it! That will be so much fun!
