I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last “real” post! Of course, without a functioning keyboard I couldn’t really do much anyway. Just before we got the keyboard working again I started getting really antsy to start blogging again and regularly, too! I have so much I want to share I’m not even sure where to start.
Well, one of the most exciting things in my life right now is our precious baby blessing. Since my last post we had a midwife appointment which went very well! I was just over 20 weeks at the time. My blood pressure was great, for which I’m very thankful, but the baby did not want to cooperate when it came time to listen to his/her heartrate. It took so long to find that I was beginning to get worried. We finally did find the little stinker but it wasn’t for long. Our next appointment is in 3 weeks (at 25.5 weeks) and by then the baby will not have nearly as much room to play hide and seek. As of now, 22 weeks or so, the baby is about 12 inches long from head to heal and weighs about 1 pound! Here’s a new picture followed by the one from a month ago. It doesn’t really look I’ve grown or changed at all! I’m still down 3 pounds from my starting weight so maybe that’s why but I can tell I’m (or the baby is) getting bigger.
Besides trying to get school done every day I’ve been busy sewing and knitting! I’ve completed several projects over the last few weeks and have several more in the works. I still need to get pictures of everything, though. I’ve made a bonnet for Esther and I’m working on a dress for her for Easter. I also made a pair of pantaloons/bloomers to go under the dress. And I’ve made 9 cloth napkins from fabric I’d cut out ages ago. I’m almost finished knitting a dishcloth. I’ve also been working on knitting my section on several baby blankets for a charity I found through Ravelry.
We just got our seed order in the mail! We didn’t have to buy much this year because we had quite a bit left over from last year. We’ll be working with clay soil here which is a new experience for me. We had a big spot plowed up for a garden last fall so that it would “freeze out” and be workable this spring. Our snow is about gone and it won’t be long before we’re able to start working up the soil for our garden. I can hardly wait to get some seeds started indoors. I need to see some green!
I’m sure there’s more that I wanted to share but I figured I’d better get this post published. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Lord’s Day! 🙂
