It was the summer of 09.

Here I am again. I was going to start this post off by apologizing for not posting for many months. But I'm not really sorry so I'm not going to do that.

House update: We have a new Silestone countertop, a new sink and new faucet. It all looks great. We still have to get the backsplash done. Do you think we'll win any awards for the longest renos ever?? I think we may deserve it. S has been really busy with the house in North Van but it is looking like it's going to be done by next week! Very exciting.

Now that we have a little one on the way (due in early January...eep!) we must step things up on the homefront. We have some fairly major things we want to accomplish before October. Removing a pony wall and replacing it with glass panels, knocking out the wall under our stairs to create new storage options, new carpet downstairs and painting downstairs. Not too much to do right? Ummm have you been paying attention to how long it takes us to get stuff done?! *sigh* hopefully a baby will be a good motivator.

I'll be 4 months pregnant next Tuesday. I thought the time would pass by very slowly but it is actually going very quickly. I'm trying to enjoy every day and really savour being pregnant. Some days it is easier to do that than others. Some days I'm just so tired and achy that I just want to sleep all day. Other days I'm full of energy and emotion and want to 'get 'er done.'

I'm about 1/3 of the way through my current knitting project (fruit & veggie toys - minus the rattles). I've done an eggplant and a cucumber so far. Working on the banana right now. I've also sewn some pre-fold diapers and will be working on some pull on fleece covers next. I took a couple of books out of the library that are full of patterns for baby stuff and I have a whole list of things I'd like to make. I will likely prioritize them and just try and tackle some. We want to try and make as much as possible for the baby. I like the idea of re-using fabrics or materials and I also like the idea of creating something myself. Wish me luck!
