remember being 9 months pregnant...

and having to bow out your legs and stand on your tip toes to pick stuff up off the floor? Yeah, I've been there for awhile but it was just the other today that I realized how ridiculous I must look. I'm walking like a drunk duck...39 weeks and 1 day today. I should try to squeeze in one more photo as I'm assuming it won't be too much longer (11 days at the most, right?)

Obviously, there's still time to enter the baby pool for a chance to win a bunch of goodies! We hit the first guess Saturday and our second today and knowing my babies, even if my water broke this instant, there's no way she'd show up at any point before midnight (sorry, Lisa and Jennifer!) I did have strong regular contractions for a full 24 hours last Saturday. I went to the hospital, they monitored me, sent me home with the promise that I'd be back at some point later that day to have this baby. Now, NINE DAYS later, not a sign of her. Carlos claims she's showing us who is boss already, I'm confident that that's true. For him :)

Not much else to update at this point. A few finished knit projects to share (this is the blanket, dress and pants I talked about before.) You can see them in my flickr account that I just use for knitting stuff.

Oh, and just a couple of links (because what kind of post would it be without them?
  • this crib set is *absolutely* perfect. Exactly what I want. But $60 for a SHEET? I don't think so :p I'll keep looking :)
  • this site is very cool. Great "practice" if you want to bone up on your journaling skills!
  • I can't wait until someone else has a baby so I can do my own version of this. What a cool and fun idea!
OK, back to work. Have a great week!


  1. Oh boy, I can't wait for the waddling drunk duck days! LOL! You crack me up!
    I keep checking your blog daily to hear if she's made her arrival! I hope you are able to enjoy a few more days of rest and relaxing before your little one comes (at least until the 10th, 'kay?).
    LOVE those sheets! They are gorgeous but hokey dinah, crazy expensive! YIKES!

    sending great labor vibes your way.
