june eight

Today Sean & I had Jakob's friends birthday party. Last week we had his family birthday party. Since we fall into both categories, we go to attend both! It was a lot of fun, and we got to go swimming. I think I got way too much sun, as my shoulders are peeling a little. It felt great to be in the pool (I feel weightless in the pool and want to stay there until I give birth!) and we had a great time.

When we had cake time, we were escorted into my Aunt's basement. I haven't been down there in a while (the last few times I'd been over I stayed upstairs). To my surprise, I saw this behind the bar. To be honest, it's a little funny. I got a good chuckle.

My grandmother who was there says it used to be in my Uncle's shop, when she used to work there. Jenn.... you wanna share the story behind this mannequin, who seems to be missing hands, behind the bar?? I'm DAMN curious!

Here is the start of my misty garden scarf . I'm knitting Misty Garden by Jo Sharp. I am loving this pattern, very simple yet looks super gorgeous. I'll keep you updated on the scarf.

This evening I had dinner with my family, which was nice. Just a simple BBQ. Jamie had baseball, so he went to that. I was going to go and watch his game, however, it was 30°C + today, and there was no way I was sitting outside at a baseball field in that weather, at a day short of being 9 months pregnant. Jamie understood.

Tomorrow I go to the OB in the morning, 36 weeks pregnant tomorrow, the start of my 9th month of pregnancy. I'm really hoping that I'm having this baby in the next two weeks, I'm sooo done being pregnant! I honestly feel that it will be so much easier with Mackenzie on the outside than having him inside my belly. I say this because I cannot pick up Sean anymore, I cannot bend down to Sean's level, even cuddling with Sean is getting to be impossible (and the kid just wants to cuddle with his mommy!) Tomorrow afternoon my mom and sister are taking Sean for the afternoon so I can make a huge batch of my homemade meat sauce as well as possible some meatballs. I also will be finalizing the June Sock Club kits for mailing. The should go out in the mail tomorrow, if not on Tuesday.

Wow... 36 weeks pregnant tomorrow. 36 weeks equals 9 months. That's insane. Where has the last 9 months gone? Next Monday, on my 27th birthday, I'm 37 weeks pregnant, which is full term. FULL TERM. Next week. What???!! The countdown on my sidebar reads 29 days left as of today. Under 30 days left! Ahhhhh! Jamie actually put together the basinette today, which is now in our bedroom. I hope Mack doesn't hate the thing like his brother did. I could not get Sean to sleep in that thing! Still a few things to do to prepare for Mack's arrival, but I hope to get some stuff done tomorrow afternoon while Sean is hanging out with his grandmother & aunt!

This evening I got no knitting done, instead I worked on my SP12 matches. They've all gone out in email. If you're in my group, please go check your secret email accounts. That's where I emailed them!

Hi, looking forward to spoiling you for SP12. I see you aren't the only one with friends who have mannequins. We have friends with one in their bathroom.

30+!!! I'd be dying if it was that hot here! I can't believe we are both 9 months gone - this went by way too quickly (despite the bedrest for me). I have the second counter on my blog to count down when I think the baby is going to come. I just can't shake the 18-the 20th being the "target date"....

I LOVE that meme! I'm totally doing it too (even if you didn't tag me).
