I'm 36 weeks pregnant now, probably time for an update on the old blog eh? Time has flown slowly if you know what I mean. The nursery is almost there, except for one part of a door jamb. My hospital bags are packed and ready to go!
I was meant to finish work at 34 weeks but ended up on sick leave from 32 weeks. I have been trying to take it easy since and am feeling pretty good! The baby is doing very well and is probably going to be a "chubby baby" (to quote my obstetrician!). The thought of pushing out a chubby baby is making me a little nervous!! The "are you sure there's only one in there?" questions from random strangers at the supermarket checkout are also doing wonders for my belly self-esteem, hahaha!
I've been getting a bit crafty lately - can you see the mobile in the pic above? I made that! It took me 5 days but was totally worth it. I purchased/downloaded the pattern from Craft Schmaft which also has gorgeous little toy patterns.
The blanket in the cot - that was P's when he was a little bubba and was made by one of his Grandmothers. It had the most insane amount of pilling going on and some of the crocheted squares were coming apart, but I gave it an intense going over with one of those weird pill shaver machines, stitched a few squares together and washed it with wool wash, and it's come up a treat.
The blanket on the end of the cot was knitted by a clever friend. I envy anyone who has the patience to knit! The sheep pillow pet is from a friend who jumped the ditch to New Zealand, what a very fitting pressie hehe!!
I've been washing all the teensy little baby clothes, they just look too cute hanging on the line.
We were given a book called "Telling Your Dog You're Pregnant" by a friend who is a Vet. Lexi has taken the news very well, she has no idea what's going on lol. The book comes with a CD of baby related noises to get your pup ready for the impending arrival. Lexi was pretty good with it, except for the toy noise track which has made me think we probably shouldn't get any squeaky toys for the baby!
Reno-wise, it never ends, but we are at a stage where we can live pretty comfortably. I will have to do a bit of an update on the blog with all the work that's been done.
We also finally got our Wedding Photos back, so I can post them up too! hooray!
