Sleeping Momma

I have to say, I enjoy watching Margaret sleep more now than ever.  Because when her hand rests on her tummy, I get to watch Lorelei move it every so often.

It’s so cute!!

Margaret is Pregnant!!

Can you believe that sexy hunk of woman got knocked up?

You know that kid is going to be hell on wheels.

Just sayin’. *spits*

Momma’s Night In

I swear, Margaret keeps pushing herself beyond what her body is capable of.  Now that she’s pregnant, she has new excuses as to why either her feet are swollen to why she has a headache.

Sweety, I hate to tole™ you, but you’re pregnant.  And I’m thankful you took my advice this evening.  You came home, outfitted for a dog walk, and then went to bed.  I really hope your headache is gone by the morning, because I think that you’ll feel refreshed and ready for a new day!

Reversible pants





All this wonderful material has just been begging me to make it into something, so today I sat down and made some Reversible pants for Lorelei. This pattern comes from the Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby by Anna Maria Horner.

I’m sure this is just the beginning!

Our Little Lorelei

We found out yesterday that we’re having a baby girl! How exciting is that? I can tell you already that I’ll be wrapped tighter than Dick’s hat band. Below are two profile pics from the ultrasound images we received.

Margaret drank more than the required 32 ounces of water and had to end up relieving her bladder for the tech to take a decent picture. Lorelei was constantly moving towards the end and flip flopped around making it difficult for the tech to get good pictures. That was so funny.

Refreshing new drink

The Voice of the Father

Margaret told me that ever since she’s started feeling our baby move, that when I start talking, the baby gets really active.

I have to say, women have it lucky for the experiences they get to feel.  I’m not talking about nausea, but the overall experience of carrying another human being in their tummy. 

Margaret and I have a connection and now I feel a connection with our little one.  I might not feel or experience the flutters in the tummy or pinches of a kick, but I’ll always grin ear to ear when I see that pregnant belly looking at me, knowing when I speak our child let’s momma know I’m there.



Yummy new yarn to mess around with…

jazz up your yogurt!

We’ve currently switched to Fage 2% plain greek yogurt and we love it. Darryl always puts a little strawberry jam in his and I jazz mine up with a little banana, honey, walnut mix. So tasty and is great for you! Just for kicks we bought the Australian yogurt Noosa the other day, and found that it had a very pleasing taste as well.

New bedtime routine

Ever since I’ve become pregnant my internal clock starts winding down around 7pm each night, and no matter how hard I try I can’t seem to keep my eyes open past 8pm.  Darryl will notice me yawning and nodding off, and will convince me that it’s time to move into the bed room. So we start migrating that way to “relax and do a little knitting in bed” as Darryl puts it. We both know what’s really going to happen. I will set up for a few minutes, then start to slide down until I’m laying completely back on the pillows, and from there I will fall asleep almost immediately. Darryl will set up till around 9 or 9:30 and, when I occasionally wake up, will get me some water or just rub my head till I fall back asleep.

Lord knows how long this will last, but for right this is our new bedtime routine.

Margaret is now 17 weeks pregnant.  What does this mean?

Well, it means 4 months of pregnancy and almost a halfway point for child birth. What’s funny in all this, is that she’s more beautiful than ever and seems to have more super powers than before.  By this, I mean in attitude, gumption, and energy.

She’s now starting to get her pregnancy waddle, but still wants to do the same amount of chores than before.  I love seeing her walk into the room with her tummy swaying, so I can rub it and ask if there’s anything I can do.  I can’t believe how nice it is to know that she’s carrying our child and that there’s no fear or no worry on our part.

Yeah, there’s the regular worries that any human would have, but overall we know things will be alright.

Silent Night

I have a sleeping momma to my left and two sleeping pups to the south.  I can’t wait to see how we all fit once the baby is born.
