Still Pregnant....

Yup, the baby is still cooking. My husband keeps pointing out that I'm not due for a few days yet, and shouldn't have expected to deliver in the middle of February. I keep pointing out that I've been having contractions for weeks, and since he doesn't have to carry this thing around on the inside of him, and has no way of comprehending the experience, he should really just SHUT UP.

I'm very blessed in that my husband is a wonderfully understanding human being. :)

In the meantime, I've been working on the Fiona Sundress and the Cotton Kisses Cardigan. I've also continued to do some rows here and there on the Celtic Knot Stole. So, yeah, I'm not really focusing on anything in particular....

Sunday is Big Boy's birthday, so he's really hoping the babe comes tomorrow or after Sunday. Little Girl's birthday is the 9th. She's having a very small princess tea party with friends, so I've been planning the menu (and am very thankful to have friends who won't care if I'm in pajamas with spit up on my shoulder during her tea party!)

I'm also thinking about knitting some socks. For me.

Happy Knitting!

Ooo, getting close now!! I had that "weeks of contractions" thing too, ugh. Then, of course, with Alice, my water broke but NOTHING! I'm wishing you a wonderful labor and delivery (not on Sunday, right?). !!!

I feel your pain, sweetie - though I just started having contractions this week and am not due for another 24 days (but who's counting?). Fingers crossed that it won't be Sunday!

The only thing positive about those early contractions is that you might be beginning to dilate and if you can walk into the hospital started...then it takes a few hours off the "actual labor". I'm hoping that's the case for you.

Happy birthday to big boy and little girl. Is she going to become big girl? I'll have to figure out how to keep track.

just blog reading after a weekend away. here's hoping that you're celebrating a birthday right now and not in the midst of a birth... i know that you're ready for your new little girl, but i know who much kids dislike having to share their birthdays.

Well you've made it passed Big Boy's B-day (I hope)- so now I think 3/3/09 sounds like a great birthdate ;) (but I am a numbers person) Hope all is well with you and the babe.

Snow storm baby? Or not yet? The last days are so hard. The not being able to plan is so hard! Why can't children just do what they're told?
