Right now my character above has a little bit of a "jewish" nose, lol, so I am going to have to fix that. Also, the next step, is color, but I have to see what my father thinks of it first, before I go any further on it.
This cute little number is from my new tenants. What a lovely gift! Sean isn't even born yet, and she brought me down a gift! I am going to have to write her a thank you card asap, and leave it for them. She brought it down tonight when she came to give me a check for tomorrow's rent. I wonder why it had a date posted for Friday though..... I'm going to let it slide this month again (last month it was because their mail wasn't set up at the new place yet), I wonder what this month's excuse is... If it happens again, in December, I think I may say something... but for this time, I'll let it slide.
I finally washed the snowsuit we'll bring our little guy home in. You can't really tell, but there is a cute little bear on the front chest. (Ignore the dirt on the left sleeve, it's dust, not dirt. When I hung it on the pipe in our laundry room to take a picture of it - some dust fell from on top of the pipe - after taking this picture, it came right off). Everything baby is just soooooo cute and tiny!
Today while grocery shopping I bought an Asian Pear so that I can have the wrapper. I had seen once on someones blog them using one to hold a cake together that they had wound. To avoid any knotting like the ball from the first tube I knit, I decided to buy an asian pear today at the grocery store, so I can have one of these foam thingies. There was actually a whole bunch of loose ones, so I threw them in my shopping cart, and took them with me on my merry way. (They're kind of delicate so I have extra now in case of ripping!)
I think for the next tube I knit with the 2 colors (not tube 3, but tube 4 will be a multi color one), I won't wind both balls together into one cake. I think I may wind both cakes separately and just knit them together. I thought I had them at the same length, but the green yarn is now coming out and there is a bunch extra and I keep having to pull the extra to untwist. (Hard to describe, sorry....) I'll try to take a picture tomorrow of what I mean.... if my pregnancy brain allows me to remember!

This is what the images I will be looking at will resemble. Of course, this is someone else's ultrasound - but it's going to be neat looking at what my son will look like! I am sooo excited. There are before and after pictures on the website, that show what the ultrasound picture looked like, and what the baby looked like after birth - and it's pretty damn cool the resemblance of the accuracy. They only do these ultra sounds between 17-35 weeks of pregnancy, so I had to act fast. Thursday marks my 31st week, and next Thursday when I have my appointment marks my 32nd week - 8th month. Pushing it close! Oooh! I'm excited.
Another thing that I decided that I might do, is a pregnancy belly cast. If I do, I'll order one off ebay (not from them), as it's a few bucks cheaper on ebay and it will come from Canada (BC I think). My sister-in-law is going to help me do it, probably at the end of November, when my belly is a little bit bigger, and she's in town for the weekend. I don't want to lug it to her place for my nephew's birthday, because that will be a jammed packed weekend, and I'd rather do it in the comfort of my own home, and also, where I can just leave it be to dry, etc. All these really cool things I want to do before my pregnancy is over!
Speaking of which, I need to email back those photography students to see if they are still interested in me modelling for them, in return for a cd-rom of pictures.
Alright, I better get to bed, tomorrow I've got the dentist and an appointment to put on my winter tires on my car. Tomorrow night, knitting with Montreal Knits!
