New Project in the Works

If you've noticed it's been a bit quite recently on the ol' blog, it's because we've been busy working on a big project over here at Casa Waffles.....

Yup, we have a little Waffle on the way!  We survived the first trimester (we're due end of August), but between a change at work leading to much more business travel, and constantly feeling drained from 1st trimester exhaustion, any non-baby baking projects have been on the back burner for the last little while.

I'm hoping that the exhaustion will start going away as I enter the 2nd trimester so we can get back to our regularly scheduled program of projects, but regardless, we'll have lots-o-things a going on 'round here while we prepare for our new family member:
  • Create a nursery
    • several re-fabulous-izing projects are already planned on some existing furniture
  • Sew a baby quilt - 'cuz hello our babe needs an awesome quilt for their room
  • Finish off some house projects to prep for baby
    • re-do entry stairs
    • phase 1 of fencing off the garden to create a safe/secure play area
    • convert the carport to a garage (hello baby stuff storage!)
  • A trip back to Belgium in May to celebrate with our overseas families and friends (~5 months preggers-eek!)
  • Create Belgian style birth announcements and "doop suikers" for visitors
  • ...... about a billion other things....

Oh, and as to how we told the Canadian half of our family....

We snuck it into a special birthday card for my Mom!


  1. Congratulations! I bet your nursery will look amazing. A Dutch friend of ours made some doop suikers for our baby, it's a lovely tradition.

  2. Congratulations! What exciting news! I'm sure your baby will have a beautiful quilt!

  3. Congrats! You have a lovely home to invite the little one into - bless your family!
