And Baby Makes Three

What started out as a random night out for me on August 11, 2013 has grown into something so utterly amazing I just don't have the words to describe it. My home in SL is with Him & now our family has grown.

In October or so we decided that we would go for it & try to get pregnant. We wanted a lengthy pregnancy, something more closely approximating what a RL pregnancy would be like. Then "it" happened. Daddy lost internet due to a dumb weather front & his company decided to just not restore the lines out to his island. Suddenly the pregnancy was a place for me to feel like he was there with me even when he wasn't. We were already separated by literally half the world & 13 hours difference. What was a little internet outage to us? Thankfully not much.

After much thought & debating over a when, we had the chance last night to go ahead & give birth to our littlest princess. Daddy assisted in the delivery & I let him do everything for her first. He fed her, changed her, dressed her for bed & laid her down while we held each other and just basked in the glow of our family. To say that I am happy isn't even accurate. I am beyond elated to have a baby with this man, my rock & source of comfort. My friends laugh at me. The woman who picked up & moved, after causing a lil ruckus about a few prim babies on a previous sim that was left out 24/7 on top of other things but really it was the chick leaving her 3 kids out all freaking day that made me irate. And here I am a year later with a baby of my own, a man who is my everything. I tried to edit out the baby, that alien thing that .... well it's kinda freaky to give birth w/the MA HUD. 'Nuff said.

No credits, this is not about fashion tonight. This is my heart, laid out for all the world to see. My Daddy & our princess.

p.s. I'm proud of his makeover. He let me do it for his Valentine's Day present. We picked the stores, he got what he wanted with input from me on what I liked & I was his little SugaMomma for the tab. :)

Nesting in the New House

I made the decision about 2 weeks ago that my house was simply too big. Did I love it beyond all measure? YES! Did I think it lacked anything in substance & style? Not a chance. What it did lack however was the ability for me to feel like I was in a home versus being in a 3 floor warehouse. Not that I wasn't going for the warehouse feel, it just simply got to be too much for me. I like things small, cozy, packed with things that are meaningful & relevant. You can't truly do that in a big old warehouse-y house. So I searched for no less than 5 days solid for the perfect house. I had stumbled upon a store called {iD} and the creator had some cute little places out for sale. I spent a few nights on the sim looking at the homes set out as stores. I fell in love with one but had difficulty in picturing it, as is, on my land with room for 2 bedrooms. Then it hit me. Oh sweet inspiration! I immediately clicked on Pay & went home to start fresh.

There were some bumps & some cursing & some wth moments based on how the textures were laid in floors & walls. Another night went by & I had my home laid out perfectly for how I wanted it. Bigger, roomier on the bedroom platforms, more space in the kitchen. I was happy. The next night I started out getting things out of my inventory. Since I just dropped my house from 145 prim to 30 I was giddy! I labored over several items the following week. I've gotten the vast majority of my home set now. As I go I will get photo frames out & fill those up w/the pictures I take for here & continue to add more knick knacks as we see fit to bring to our home. I was going to take some pictures but then my friend Merci stopped over & told me she was pregnant with twins. So we got kind of side tracked. The next few pictures I take will be of just the house, mostly because I look like a house right now. 26 more days until I give birth in SL! Then I get mesh back. YAY!!!!
