I've been feeling increasingly slow (could I complain any more? Really I'm feeling fine, just gosh darn slow) already with this little girl and I'm just 26 and a half weeks. I don't think I mentioned at my 25 week appointment Baby Girl was already measuring two weeks bigger. I'm so thankful for her growth, but could definitely be spared another 9 pound delivery if possible, thank-you-very-much! They won't do an ultrasound until 34-36 weeks to get an idea of possible weight (I know those are normally off anyway, but the doc in Dallas was 2 oz off from Max, so I take a little stock in them).

I'm starting to get those comments and stares and sympathetic smiles when I'm in public. If you remember being pregnant, you know the ones I'm talking about. Luckily, people have not yet started to ask if I'm due this week or if I'm having twins... yet....

Yesterday during "nap" time (that's a loose word around our house, because there's a lot of playing that normally goes on before the nap is actually taken) Max started to cry like he was hurt, so I checked on him to find he had stranded himself on his window sill by pulling out his drawer, emptying it, climbing in (bending the rollers, I might add), legged up onto his radiator cover, pulling himself onto with window sill to see the birdies outside. UGH! Needless to say, the dresser has now taken residence in the dining room and we are at a loss as to how to keep the climber in bed. He knows what's wrong and right and would never do it if we were around, but there's not enough threats in the world to keep him from doing things when we aren't looking. I have to keep reminding myself that he's just 22 months old.

A friend from high school posted pictures she had taken of her pregnancy and I loved this really sweet picture she had taken with the shoes she wore home from the hospital years ago. So today I did a little duplication. Of course they aren't as beautiful (or professional) as hers, but this eased a bit of the guilt I've been feeling about not taking enough pictures of this pregnancy.

Yes those are my baby shoes :)

Lastly, here's some now Knitting WIPs to love the colors of.

This one reminds me of Easter

This one is the start of the wool soaker I talked about in the last post.
