A Few Updates

Since my last update I have been for two ultrasounds one at 14 weeks because I was just very anxious and afraid something was wrong, but everything was completely fine and then our scheduled 16 week ultrasound that we were supposed to find so much out at. Baby had other plans for us he/she decided to not show us much. haha!! I was so hoping to find out what we are having, but that didn't happen baby was sitting indian style and they couldn't see anything! Little stinker!!! So far though what they have been able to see on the baby looks normal! We go for our level two ultrasound on Jan 10th I will be 18 1/2 weeks and then on Jan 13th we go for our fetal echo. I am so happy to say that they now do fetal echos at the Chalfont CHOP! I was getting so anxious about having to go to CHOP in the city and then when I had my appointment with my midwife I asked her if there was anywhere else that I could go for an echo that she was recommend and she told me they do them there! I was soooo happy!! Yes, I am disapppointed that we won't be able to see Owen's wonderful cardiologist, but I really don't think I would have been able to handle going to CHOP. We would appreciate your prayers for the upcoming appointments.

Baby at 14 weeks:

Baby 16 weeks:

Since being pregnant I have been so unmotivated.  My In-laws got me a new sewing machine soon after Owen died and I used it a few times before getting pregnant.  I made two quilts and a couple other blankets.  I have squares cut for either a boy quilt or a girl quilt for this baby.  I am going to wait to see what we are having so I know which quilt I will be making.  I love doing crafty things, but if you know me I will not do anything unless my house is in tip top shape.  My house always comes before any extras that I want to do.  After seeing an ornament like the one below for an outragous price I decided to buy the materials to make one.  It saved me $15 making it myself.  The only thing is it took me over a month to get myself to make it. I am not completely finished with the ornament I still want to add ribbon to the top of it and I need Ian to spray the clear coat on it for me and I am thinking about putting something inside...?  Still undecided on that. 

Ornament for baby it reads "Expecting Baby Sirianni 2010"

 I decorated this little Christmas tree to put at Owens grave!  I was so excited when I came across this little tree.  It was exactly what I was looking for, for him!! 

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!!


  1. What a fun read... I didn't know you were all into sewing and quilting.

    I am so glad that all is well... in and with your little one. What comfort.

    Have a wonderful Christmas. That little tree is darling.

  2. Great news Ashley! I was checking in to the blog every so often to see if there was an ultrasound update and I am glad everything is looking good! Thank you Lord! Praying for you often!


    PS- I loved the tree. So sweet. We're all missing Owen- sometimes prayer time seems empty without him.
