It's done!

It's DONE!!! The SOD (otherwise known as Shawl of Death) has been cast off and stretched within an inch of it's life. A mother and a half to block it, it's pinned to a full sized futon with a small army of safty pins, but it's done. I figure it'll be dry in an hour after blocking, since it's 90+ degrees right now, and nothing for humidty.

The not perks of mommyhood

You know that the honeymoon of mommyhood is over when at 2am in the morning you're trying not to cry your eyes out because the baby won't sleep, even though he's been up for 3 hours now. He's not hungry, I offer him a boob and he just sits there looking at me like I'm the biggest idiot in the world. He doesn't need to be changed, he doesn't need burping, he doesn't want to be held, and he doesn't want to sleep obviously. Nevermind that I've been nursing him for the last 2 hours. If he wasn't so darn cute and if I didn't love him so much I'd threaten him with adoption right about now. But instead I'm out here typing and he's laying in his crib, thankfully 2 rooms apart with just a monitor between us. Mommy needed some time and space before she flipped and broke down. Now if mommy could just get some sleep, all would be well. Or if I hadn't just brushed my teeth, than I could eat some chocolate and see if that made me feel a bit better. This is where having a hubby that works nights sucks, cause the other people in the house are all sleeping and aren't any help to me either, right now.

Well, it may be only June, but feels like Christmas to me for sure! I got my SP8 box today from my pal, and belive me, WOW.

Those little green things there in the front are a pair of baby socks for my little angel, and a matching hat. I was tempted to try them on him, but it's over 85 in my house right now and I'm not that mean to put wool on him in this. I love the hat, which my partner did a little trick with the ribbing, it looks like leaves.

Next is a skein of sock wool from Lisa Souza, in the coolst colorway. It's browns, blues (which you can't really see in the picture), with a little bit of orange and olive green thrown in for good measure. So soft, and superwash merino, which means that I don't have to be so uber careful with the washing. The Betty doesn't like blocking and handwashing much, so this is a godsend. Or in this case, a partner send. :)

And since I was warned that she was planing on spoiling baby Scott, an adorable baby photo album (something I didn't have yet, so again, perfect!)

But the best, has of course been saved for last. CHOCOLATE!!! Just smelling these is great, I can't wait to actually eat one. But which to eat first? That's the real question. Maybe I should wait until the hubby gets home and ask him........but why?

Thanks to my secret partner, You're amazing!!!

All's well

Well, Baby Scott and mommy are home and doing great. He was born at 1:53 pm Friday the 9th, weighing in at 5 pounds 12 ounces, and length of 18 inches. Seems soooooooo tiny, but he was 2 weeks early. Mommy is up and moving, slowely, but it's the thought that counts. I can't get enough of watching the little tyke sleep, nor watching his daddy sleep with him either. If there was ever a guy to take to being a daddy, it's Jay (hubby). Here's a lint to a few pictures, and progress updates will be posted. Pictures can be seen at

So please think happy thoughts, cause I'm scared out of my mind right now. I'll have people post pictures when they get home tomorroe night, cause no one can resist a baby. :)
