new notes on apostrophes

i stumbled upon an article about apostrophes...how, where and when to use them.  i love this term: the word apostrofly – "an insect that lands at random on the printed page, depositing an apostrophe wherever it lands".

to read more, check out this link: http://tinyurl.com/pb5a9tf

so, get up to speed on using this punctuation symbol!  it's a great way to appear intelligent.

my daughter, jawnna, has updated her status.  this is what she said: "i went to another ultrasound today. i am 36 weeks and 2 days along and he is now 8 pounds and 12 ounces he has gained 3 pounds 4 oz in 3 weeks. wow we are going to have a big baby!" 
 
stay tuned!

baby update

baby boy still measures larger than "normal".  the due date might be brought forward a month, like at the end of june instead of july.  another 3-d ultrasound will be scheduled.  our trip to ohio might be sooner than we expected!

baby update...

mom says: "26 week 3D scans, the little man loves to have his feet and hands in his face." 

for some reason, i couldn't lift the scans from her facebook page.  what cool 3-d images!  it's amazing.  when i was pregnant with my daughter, ultrasounds were only necessary when there was a potential problem.  i never got one!

baby update

baby boy is bigger than "usual" at 2.5 pounds.  this is about 1 pound larger than "normal".  he is in the 89th percentile.  during the 3-d ultrasound, baby boy moved around quite a bit and even put his hands and legs in front of his face.  mom thinks this baby is just going to be bigger than all of her others.

i told my daughter that her great great grandma on her dad's side of the family gave birth to very big babies, like in the teens...maybe something like 14 or 15 pounds!  that's alot of baby!

my daughter says that she will buy only one package of number 1 diapers, and she will bring a couple of differently-sized outfits for the ride home.

mom developed pregnancy induced asthma, which i had never heard of.  besides that, mom and baby are doing well, and the due date remains at july 31st.

this time, i won a $50 gift certificate from emma's paperie.  i am such the lucky one!  i am in the process of spending it, and when it comes in, i will share pictures of that, too.

edited to add:
i ordered mostly paper...about an inch stacked.  it isn't possible to photograph all of it.

i'm a winner...again!

this time, i received a $25 gift certificate to hydrangea hippo.  i spent it mostly on trims:

holiday tag

i made this tag for entry into graphic 45 and paper crafts connection.  it was difficult taking a picture today so an explanation is in order: notice at the top of the tag there are 3 ab snowflakes and along the right side is "season's greetings" stamped on vellum with staz-on olive.
