My friend just emailed me saying she wanted updated pictures of my pregnancy. I only have a good "bump" picture from Christmas time (the end of my second trimester). My pregnancy is going great right now and starting the third trimester has been exciting. As of last week, I have stopped working and am adjusting to my new schedule. I miss the boys terribly, but I get to see them this weekend because it is Aden's fifth birthday and he will be having his birthday party at a pottery studio where the kids will paint pottery.
My friend Skyla takes sewing classes at a local Hancock Fabric store so I butted my way in and signed up for four classes. I completed my first project and I am not sure I am going to attempt baby clothing ever again! I made a sleep sack and I can't believe how expensive it is to make a simple garment when everything is all said and done. My next sewing project will be to finish sewing the lining for my Moses basket and the edge liner for the bassinet. I ordered a new bassinet mattress and sheet so now I need to add the finishing touches. The picture below the sleep sack is of Skyla's son Aiden and our friends Peter and Danika's daughter Jocelyn. The picture was taken when we went Christmas tree hunting in Half Moon Bay together.
I have also done a fair share of crocheting lately. I am part of a crochet group that meets every other week and I love spending time with the girls. The latest project I just finished is a toddler poncho for my friend Carolyn's daughter Elaine June. Andrew and I will be visiting them in NY in a couple of weeks so I wanted to bring something for EJ since it will be the first time meeting her.
This is a picture of the view from Andrew's hotel room when he went to the Santa Cruz mountains for a Google management training course. Tough life, huh?
Oh, and here are some pictures of the nursery so far. It is a work in progress and I have to edge the curtains with blue and bows and I have only laid out the fabric in/around the crib so I still have to finish that. The peace baby letters will go on the wall and I am painting three canvasses of forest and gnomes above the crib. Right now I have the sketches above the crib on white paper so I could test out my idea. The bookshelf will definitely get cleaned and re-organized.
Blake's closet is slowly filling up.
Much love to you all and enjoy the wonderful rainy weather.
