Just Wanted To Share Our Excitement With You

To Start With....
Our Little Guy turned "3" on June 25th!
3 Already!?!?! Where did the time go?
Anyway, I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of his invitation. 
Maybe (just maybe) one of these days I will get around to doing a blog post with some of the details from his pirate party.  And if I get really ambitious maybe (just maybe) I will go back and share the details of his Mickey Carnival Party that we did for his 2nd birthday too! 
I still get tons of messages and comments about his Cat In The Hat 1st Birthday Party.....
So stay tuned! 
Moving On To Other Exciting News....
Kate Middleton, Prince William and baby George
The "Royal Baby" was born and it seems the whole world was watching and excited to catch a glimpse of the little guy. 
 Cute as he is I couldn't take my eyes off of his beautiful mother.  I mean she even managed to make her postpartum bump look stylish. {Gagging A Little!} 
If only we could all look so perfectly put together leaving the hospital with our newborns! RIGHT?
Sorry if I kind of got off topic for a little bit there.

Back To What I Am Excited To Share....

Well, at the same time that we were sending out Bresden's birthday invitations we were also sending out these little cards that I was so excited to make....

{The Front}  

I purchased a bunch of sample spoons from a local ice cream shop, drilled ( yes actually drilled) 2 small holes in the front of the card, thread an 8 inch strip of  satin ribbon through the holes and tied a little bow to secure the spoons to the front of the card.

Why put little spoons on the front of a card?

Well, since our last name is WitherSPOON,
Little Baby Spoons seemed like the perfect thing to announce.... 

 Yep, I just might be ringing in The New Year in a hospital bed!
Thank you to those of you who have prayed for our family.  
We feel so blessed to be expecting our second child especially after thinking that we may never be able to have children of our own.
Infertility is no fun but don't let it stand in the way of your dreams!
Praise God for the doctors at RMA of Texas and for our 2 successful rounds of IVF!!!

And One More Bit Of Exciting News....

We went for our full anatomy ultrasound @17weeks and we are having....

Wait For It....

Wait For It....

I think that her ultrasound pic below effectively illustrates just how ridiculously excited I am!

Well, I am off to hopefully find myself a stylish Pink Polka Dot Outfit (like Kate's) to wear after my baby girl arrives! 
Stay tuned for updates on my pregnancy, what our family is up, cute girly things that I've made and found, interesting product reviews and maybe some fun giveaways!

It has been 3 years since my son was born and 
there are so many new Must-Have products out there 
that I can't wait to check out & share with you all!

Anyone else follow Tori Spelling's Blog, EdiTORIial?
I do and I must say that I love it!
Today she posted some great ideas for  
Father's Day Gifts
  and so I thought maybe I should post a couple of my own.  

 Last year just before Father's Day I caught my little guy trying on his Daddy's shoes and snapped a few pics. Talk about perfect timing.  For Father's Day I did a little editing on the photo, added a sweet message, had it printed and framed. 
I wanted to create something special for my Dad too and found this sweet photo of my little guy holding his Papa's hand to use for it..
Voila!  Sweet & Personal Father's Day Gifts To Be Treasured For Years To Come!

Now if only I could come up with something even better for this year!

Just thought someone may benefit from the last minute gift ideas or you could always
 Pin them for next year!

The OV-Watch - A Fertility Predictor Kit

The following review was originally posted on my sister's blog 
  This may be news to you, but my husband and I have struggled with infertility for most of our 10 years of marriage.

Quick! What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words "peeing on a stick?"
If "pregnancy test" is the first and only thing that comes to mind then you are probably one of the lucky ones who hasn't had a difficult time getting pregnant and you may not even be aware that infertility effects 10-15 percent of the reproductive-age population and that many women "pee on sticks" to determine when they are ovulating to find their fertile window.
I have peed on my fair share of sticks...Ovulation predictors and pregnancy tests. I can't tell you how many times I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice if I didn't have to play with my urine and could just know when I was ovulating." How I wished that knowing the time of ovulation could have been as simple as just looking at a watch. 
Well with OV-Watch, now it is!
OV-Watch is a wristband ovulation detector that you wear at night while you are sleeping. It's advanced biosensor and microprocessor interpret hormone induced chloride ion fluctuations. The OV-Watch detects the chloride surge 3 days prior to the estrogen surge, 4 days prior to the LH surge and 5 days prior to ovulation, making it an earlier predictor of ovulation than any other chemical surges during the month. It is estimated that 66% more pregnancies will occur by month 6 with OV-Watch over urinary LH kits. The watch takes readings of chloride ion levels that are secreted in perspiration, detecting the chloride surge and providing the user with an alert of FERTILE DAYS 1-4 and OVULATION DAY. OV-Watch detects the 4 crucial days before ovulation as opposed to LH test sticks that detect the LH surge occurring just 12-24 hours before ovulation.
It helps women to take advantage of their full fertile window, which means less stress about timing and a higher likelihood of getting pregnant. Imagine that you are trying to throw a ball through a window...wouldn't you be more likely to achieve your goal if that window was a bit larger?

I can't help but wonder if the OV-Watch could have saved us from the two costly rounds of IVF that it took to conceive our son, who is now 2 1/2. I am sure that you will agree that the $139.99 for a starter

kit and the additional cost for the monthly supply of sensors will be money well spent if it helps you to conceive and is really nothing in comparison to the cost of other infertility treatments.
While I cannot share a personal success story about OV-Watch (yet) as I did not know about this product when we were trying to get pregnant with our son it just might end up playing a role in giving my son a brother or sister. Hopefully my sister will be sharing the news that she has a new niece or nephew on the way soon and we would love to hear if you have success with OV-Watch too.
You might be interested to know that Bachelorette Reality-TV Stars Trista & Ryan Sutter used OV-Watch to successfully conceive.
