So I'm going to try and make this a new feature on the baby blog. It seems like I have week long cycles of meals that I like to eat morning noon and night. This week it's peanut butter and jelly club sandwiches. Weird cravings, or genius?! I brought back some amazing strawberry jam from Paris and I have gone through almost half the jar this week thanks to these babies. I know the picture isn't the best, but that's peanut butter, jelly, and bananas. Oh yeah, and 3 slices of bread. Meal of the week.
Here is the sweater I was working on this week. It knit up very quickly and I think I'm going to be addicted to making baby sweaters now! The pattern is from Ravelry and it's the "baby yoda" sweater. There were a couple of glitches with the pattern but I worked it out and I think it came out cute! It's a wrap sweater and it's made out of hand dyed cotton. The pictures aren't the best, but it's a pretty orange color in real life. Pretty close to the first close up picture. Ira said we should wear it on the baby when we come home on the plane in december! Other then knitting, things have been going well. It's been good for me to rest this week and not do a lot of walking in the heat. My feet and ankles have returned to normal and I can actually see the bones in my feet which is exciting. I never thought I would care about such a thing! The only things I can really complain about are heartburn at night and I have a lot numbness and tingling in my hands. The tips of my middle and ring fingers on my left hands have been numb for weeks now. It's just annoying more than anything else. The baby is moving ALL THE TIME. I see things in my baby books about "counting kicks" and I think that if I did that I wouldn't get anything else done! I would kindly appreciate it if someone would move their cute little feet away from my rib cage, however!
I've been making things for the baby for the past couple of months. I probably would have started the second I found out I was pregnant, but I had other darling babies to craft for. So the first thing I made was a "kicking bag". It fits right under the baby's armpits and is stitched at the bottom. It's kind of like a sleep sack without arms, which I thought would be better for this climate. I've also been embroidering onesies. I don't have any pictures because they went along in the shipment. I have a couple that I'm working on here and I'll post pictures when they are finished. I'm also working on a sweater! I've always loved making things for others, but these projects have been the most fun. I can't wait to see the baby in them!
Haha, that's been my ongoing joke, that I'm sure Ira is now tired of at this point. Here I am at 31 weeks, standing in front of the tree that Ira and I stood in front of and exchanged our vows. Aw.... I know this is a tease, but I'm going to have to leave it at that. We have limited internet right now and I keep getting thrown off. So all is well and I will update again soon!
