I’m Celebrating the Boy

Oops, I’m a day late for the month-long Celebrate the Boy fest hostessed by Rae and Dana. But, of course, if you have a boy, celebrating them is a 24-7 thing. I’m destined for a lifetime of all-boy, all the time celebration — that is boy #2 waving at you up there! I’m 23 weeks now, due in early July, things are going well, midsection expanding rapidly, big brother is super excited. The only bummer is that I will be too far along in late May to go to Spring Quilt Market — doctor’s orders. Hopefully all you exhibitors and attendees will take lots of pictures and let me share them here so True Up can continue its tradition of providing a virtual Quilt Market.


  1. Hooray for BOYS! I have two, so I’m with you on the daily celebration. Congratulations- from both me and Gina.

    Hurrah for boys! Congrats, Kim…you better hop to that library before your second one arrives or you’ll never have time to sleuth out all of those books. But, then again, maybe you could hide your camera on top of the belly somehow? Ha ha…

    Sorry that you have to miss the Quilt Market…but you may be glad to miss all of those hours on your feet by the time May rolls around anyway.

    We’ll miss your your lovely post updates.

    Congratulations on another boy. Boys are the best! Sorry to hear you won’t be at Spring Market. Even though I make the huge flight over (from Aus) and walk the aisles, I still check your blog to see what you found. Enjoy this special time.

    I love that little hand! My last 2 are boys and they are such a hoot together. I can’t get over how much fun they are! You will have such a crazy, good time in your house!

  20. I’m so excited for you! And I have two name suggestions to ponder: Otis (if you want two Os), and Bruno (two with Os at end).

    Wishing you comfort and sleep…
