Baby Mine

Had a minor scare with baby earlier this week.  I think I was jittery because of some measurements at my last check-up, the week before.  At any rate, everything is okay right now, and I am trying not to borrow trouble.  These pics are from our ultrasound on December 6–I love the “toes” one the most, but of course I think they’re all adorable.

For another Jenni Bowlin Inspiration Challenge.  This time, to use a grid in your layout design.  I squeaked out a partial grid, but I have to bust out of linear boxed-innedess, so I let the title and journaling do the honors.  I think that touch of asymmetry adds balance to a layout…

I digress.  Obviously, the ultrasound photos are my grid, and I used three JBS journaling cards to back the title and do the journaling.  I snuck in a stamp, too, in light blue chalk ink on the journaling tag beneath the title.  Otherwise, it looked too plain and empty.  And I am in love with this Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and will miss it when all the pieces are gone from my stash, which might be very soon!

Journaling reads, “Okay, so of course, you’re baby ours, but that’s not how the song goes!  xox ‘Baby mine, don’t you cry, Baby mine, dry your eyes, Rest your head, close to my heart, Never to part, baby of mine.  From your head to your toes, You’re not much, goodness knows, But you’re so precious to me, Cute as can be, baby of mine.’ “ (From Dumbo.  Geez, I can’t watch that clip without losing it.  Pregnancy hormones…  Right?  Argh.  I think that movie is why I really don’t like circuses.)

  2. Awww. AM I just love this LO.It is just beautiful. I LOVE the song. Somehow I had never heard the song to remember until a few years ago when I was looking for lullabies. Anyway, this song is now on my IPod and I listen to it frequently. I wish I had known this song way back when I had a little one. But I do plan on singing it to my grandbaby one day. I am so glad to share your pregnancy this way… my DD was born on 4/23 so my pregnancy was close in time .etc. with yours
