09.25.10 :: 27 weeks pregnant / 3rd Trimester


I'm 27 weeks pregnant today.
Officially in my 3rd trimester.
10 weeks to go to make my goal date.
I started to feel this week like my belly exploded in size.


Mr. Mack has been sporting a hat all week. He's just too cute in it.


Jamie decided a few days ago that he was buying a 2nd hand (in mint condition) air hockey table. The boys love playing on the one at my parents house. The look on Sean's face when we loaded it up into the car today was priceless. He turned to us and said "I guess I can take that off my birthday wish list now"... I almost died it was too cute. The boys played on it for a good solid 2 and a half hours this afternoon. They love it. As long as we don't start getting pool tables & pink pong tables as well, I'll be okay. These tables are huge. We did some re-arranging in the playroom, but it actually works out well how we placed it. Mack can stand on the couch to play and Sean has a stool. (They're still way too short). Hey, whatever works.

This evening we shipped the kids off to my parents house. They were supposed to sleep over there last weekend, but my mom had come down with tonsillitis. We finally got to go out for our anniversary dinner (our 5th wedding anniversary was last Saturday) and have a kid free night. We went into the city to our fave Italian restaurant. It was delicious as always.

I've been working more on the sample knit, however I'm finding it hard as I keep getting alapaca hairs up my nose. Not fun. Not really enjoying this project. But it's not for me, so I'm trekking along (and working on other stuff at the same time). I don't mind when a yarn has a bit of alpaca in it. But this yarn is 100% Alpaca.

So much to knit. So little time.

... this week I hope to tackle the nursery. It seems like this week is a bit more of a relaxed week, compared to all the stuff we had going on last week. I do have an OB apointment this week, must get my glucose (ick!) test done, and there's a family corn roast at the boys' daycare. Other than that, and some time put in at the office, I plan to get the nursery taken care of. Time's ticking.

Hey! I recognize you from all those belly pics on ravelry I just scanned though:) Thanks for commenting on my blog and it's nice to meet you! I have three boys (9, 6, 3) and my 4th baby is due Dec 16th. I don't know what I'm having so (eek!) I could be a 4 boy mama.

I'll be reading your blog....that cabled hoodie is so adorable. I might need to make that my next project, if only I can find it in bigger sizes.

Ooh, the air hockey table looks like fun! Phil used to have something sort of similar (a bowling game), but it was WAY too big, so now it lives in his parents' basement.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE air hockey!!!! So does my family. There's a place near the beach that has one, and I swear the girls get more excited about the air hockey table than they do about swimming! :)
