yep, you heard right, well sort of right, the ultrasound may have showed a girl. for some reason i don't feel 100% with the gender, i have way too many friends be told their babies were girls and oops - out came a boy! so in the meantime it's a "maybe girl" in our house.

i have been meaning to put up an ultrasound pic of the baby, man this one is a real mover/shaker, but the pics i scanned in just won't seem to cooperate with photoshop - do not ask me why. so sorry folks, no baby pics yet. hopefully we will get a few more, it sounds like we will be having another ultrasound.

in the meantime, i decided to do a roundup of all my fave baby girl tutes out there! there are a lot, but these just happen to be in my personal favorites on my computer. i recently cleaned this out (have any of you had the guts to do this lately?) and man oh man, quite the shocker! this thing was friggin' ginormous! huge! it took me a few hours just to do my sewing folder, not to mention crafts etc. but it's done, i conquered the beast.

i've been slacking on posting big time as we are getting ready for xmas here and i have been sewing again - yippee! i can't post any pics yet as they are all gifts and it would just ruin the surprise. i have also been doing some blog housekeeping and making plans for the new year. i am hoping (fingers crossed) that the site will be up and back to normal in the new year, until then i am taking it easy and enjoying all the yummy scrumptious family time we have coming up. so without further ado here's luvinthemommyhood's baby girl roundup.

wowsa! that's quite the roundup, but it was also quite the favorites folder!

please feel free to suggest any other tutorials you may know of in the comments section and i just may do a "part two"! and not to leave boys out, i just may do one in the new year for fun! i love little boy stuff and don't think there are enough tutorials out there for cute boy things.

just in case i don't post again until after xmas i am wishing all of you a wonderful and happy holiday season filled with family and loved ones!


  1. Yay for you!!! I'll tell you those ultrasounds can be tricky. My first 2 were definate, CLEARLY a boy, then a girl. With the third, my first 2 ultrasounds said girl, then once I went to a specialist who was looking for heart deffects and used a much better machine, it was plain as day it was a boy. I hope your second one gives you more. And what a great roundup, all of the ideas are cute!!

  2. Merry Christmas to you too! I guess I'll have to wait until the baby comes out to make something ;) LOL. Have a wonderful time with your family during the holidays!
