baby diary (19 weeks + 6 days)


most weird crying moment so far was when i saw a keebler
elf commercial. a big sis gives her little sis the last cookie... then here's the 
kicker - the elves magically make 1 more cookie appear! haha yes i sobbed 
the first time i saw it!

baby diary (19 weeks + 3 days)

my breakfasts are getting bigger: oatmeal, two pieces of toast, water, orange juice, hot water with lemon. i was hungry an hour later.
finally made it to a prenatal yoga class. i was excited to meet other pregs - i was the only one who showed up to the class - go figure!
sore from yoga. i sat on the couch the rest of the night with a hot water bottle on my back.

amy from pikaland gave me the great idea to start a pregnancy diary - i hope this isn't
annoying. i promise not to turn into a baby blog. at least not the type thats all
pictures of my baby... are illustrated ones okay? :)

My weakness with illustration is drawing realistic people, especially famous people. I was nervous for my first assignment in Multi-Level Illustration, which was to draw a celebrity. The first person who came to mind (not just because I won a look-a-like contest years ago) was Bjork. Luckily, she is iconic and seems like a fun and imaginative person, which made her easier to draw. I am quite pleased with how this turned out!


A few others that didn't make the cut, I still think they are fun even if they don't look like Bjork!

Book Recommendations


At the beginning of the year my husband asked if I would create some posters for his classroom - here are a few drawings that I made for his book recommendations.

We had a cousins reunion this past weekend in Lexington, Michigan. On the drive out there it was nice seeing all the leaves changing colors; greens, reds, oranges and bright yellows. I felt like the right time to change my blog header. Happy Fall!
