Happy Anniversary!

Four years ago today I married my best friend and soulmate. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life. I cannot wait for our little one to be a part of our love. I just thought I'd share a few pictures from our special day.

We've Been Boo'ed

For Halloween, the members of the Mom's Club I recently joined are "BOO-ing" eachother. Basically you secretly leave some sort of Halloween themed goodies at another members' house without them knowing. Look what was waiting for me when I got home yesterday... Thank you to my secret pal!

Also, the nursery is 99% complete! I say 99% because we are waiting till after s/he is born to put up window coverings and artwork as these will be different depending on whether we have a boy or girl. I am in love with the nursery. I have already spent several hours knitting in the glider.

Presidential Debate

The debate was so thrilling last night...just look at the excitement on these faces only 5 minutes after the discussion began.

Blankie Finished!

I finally finished the blanket for Baby Pedersen to go with the pumpkin hat. I wanted something special made by his/her mommy to wear home from the hospital. Both the blanket and the hat are organic cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas. I am so happy with how they turned out. If interested, the blanket is my own modification of the Tiramisu Blanket pattern by Alicia Paulson. The Pumkin Hat is is a pattern from Lettuce Knit that was in my Stitch-N-Bitch knitting calendar.

Month 8


Baby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.

So Baby Pedersen is now the size of a Honeydew. And s/he certainly does react to light. Occasionally John and I will shine a flashlight into my belly and s/he will move all around and try to figure out what is going on. John doesn't like to do that though...he thinks he is hurting the baby.
