just putting the finishing touches on the papoose.
I'm glad it is finished.

Now I can mop/vacuum the condo.

I suggest everyone read this post by a friend.
If you think that the CPSIA won't have anything to do with you...or isn't just getting stupid...

All childrens books will be banned from the library.

from the Forbes article listed in her post:
"The first thing to note is that we're not just talking about toys here. With few exceptions, the law covers all products intended primarily for children under 12. That includes clothing, fabric and textile goods of all kinds: hats, shoes, diapers, hair bands, sports pennants, Scouting patches, local school-logo gear and so on.

And paper goods: books, flash cards, board games, baseball cards, kits for home schoolers, party supplies and the like. And sporting equipment, outdoor gear, bikes, backpacks and telescopes. And furnishings for kids' rooms. And videogame cartridges and audio books. And specialized assistive and therapeutic gear used by disabled and autistic kids."

new baby

note to self

lemur no longer likes waffles and will make me empty stomach contents if I eat them.
Today I am officially 8 weeks, and Ben and I have been joking that the lemur can now river dance on my bladder.

I ordered some new knitting needles and when those come in I am knitting some new necklaces to put in my artfire shop
so please keep your eyes peeled for that. I have been ignoring my knitting lately (at least what I'm selling) and we could really use the extra money to put away for the baby.
We're also selling a bunch of stuff on craigslist. we want to get money in the savings account so it can gain some interest.

it is supposed to be about 40 this weekend, which is a nice change. Maybe Ben and I will go do something to get my butt out of the house.

fun with morning sickness

Today the lemur decided that being nauseous wasn't enough. I had to vomit.
Not only that...but I had to do it so hard that I hurt my jaw and gave myself a raging headache. I can deal with the vomiting...but not if I get a headache every time.

This Friday I'll be 8 weeks along and the baby will officially be a fetus. It's amazing to think I have a little life form growing inside of me. Then again this kid knocks the energy right out of me.

We're putting together our registry so when we hit the second trimester we have things together. Boy do babies need a lot. I wish I could get some more commissions to save up a little more money. I'm doing my best to knit stuff for the baby. And once I find out the sex it will be a bit easier to choose colors.

explain to me

why the first thing people ask me is what the sex of the baby is...
this when I've already said I'm only 6 weeks in to my pregnancy.

Still...WTF is everyone else's obsession with the sex of my baby?

or the "don't be anxious it's bad for the baby!"

oh god...7.5 more months of this...

busy busy

I finished the alpaca gator socks. I'm just waiting for the sew on eyes to come on the mail to complete them.
I'm starting on the cupcake hat now.

Today was just rough with all the morning sickness...but the worst part was about 3 hours ago when I fell down the stairs.
I'm ok, I landed on my knees and wrists. I'm very bruised, but protected my abdomen.
I'm going to be sore and bruised for several days...right now I wish I could take a Xanax because I'm still so upset.
I started crying right away, I know the baby is strong now, but it was still a very scary thing.

knitted things

I finished the baby booties for my SIL who is due in March. I'm working on the matching scratch mitts and should be done either today or tomorrow depending on how much napping I do today.

Forgive the bad hair I just got up and need to shower.

I'm glad that I have plenty of knitting to keep me occupied. Our first ultrasound is on Tuesday.

some loser got pissed about something I posted over at etsy bitch and sent me this:

Jane Sayers

You sure are fat ugly bitchy looking thing! Yucky!

Hormone levels are really good. Next week I have my ultrasound. If all goes well then Ben and I need to find an OB/GYN.

And they did make it official that my due date is September 4th

Monday, January 5, 2009

Since Ben is a monkey and I'm a kitty...we decided this baby is a lemur.

I also declare that the first trimester is the cat trimester. You eat, sleep, act bratty, and hork up hairballs.

Thursday, January 1, 2009

According to some due date calculators I am due September 4th
I signed up for artfire
it's going to be a little while before I move stuff over there...but etsy is being horrible.

morning sickness...not just for the mornings

The constantly wanting the puke is what is going to get me. I'd rather just puke and get it over with. But I'll smell something and be sick to my stomach.

Still, it's part of pregnancy and I'm more then happy to have to deal with it.

As for knitting, I'm almost finished with mom's shawl. The I can work on the convertible mittens she paid me to do.
After that I want to make stuff for my SIL. Just some simple baby stuff that will only take a few days.
I need to redo some of my etsy pics as well as make some new items.
Sales now and extra money to put into the baby account would be great.
