Today's the Day

Well at least it's the day we're going to the hospital.

It seems our baby boy has made quite the comfy nest in there and does not want to come out. So today at 5pm we will be going to the hospital to begin the induction.

Since I had hoped to go through this labor with as little intervention as possible, this has been quite disappointing to me (to say the least).

However, although I am the eternal pessimist, I must be optimistic that once things start going, that they will continue that way and we will only need a minimal amount of intervention.

So, since that's a lot to have on your mind, I've been keeping busy making things for baby.

In the last 2 weeks I've started and finished 3 projects.

A wool soaker to go over his cloth diapers (above)

Wool soaker pants (both above and below)

And finally some thing cute and fun, a stocking cap!

In the meantime I am also working on several baby blankets for the slew of friends I have who will also be having a baby this year.

Boy am I a busy girl

Back, with a good excuse?

Okay maybe it's not the best excuse as I'm certainly aware there are lots of people out there doing what I am doing and have time or at least the severe dedication to update their blogs.

Yesterday was my 40wk doctor appointment for our soon-to-join-us new addition.

For those of you who may know me on a personal basis, you know, i'm a planner. I've spent pretty much every moment the last 9 months either working, sleeping, or planning something for the baby. That's not necessarily a good reason to be neglectful to my blog. Because really, this is something I have decided I wanted to do and need to continue to dedicate myself to.

So my new and I swear this time it's official plan is to post at least once a week with what I am working on. I'd rather once a day but I cannot promise that when baby boy does finally decide to show up that I will be able to handle a once-a-day regimen.

Once a week, once a week.

My new mantra.
