So have you guys heard of the old wives tale that the baby won’t come until the knitting is done? Because I think it might be true. See Jennifer was past her due date… and I still hadn’t finished her mommy socks. I thought I was exempt since the baby socks were done… but the thought that I might be holding this baby up and leaving her 9 months pregnant for longer than necessary… well… I spent all weekend doing this:
I finished the socks on Sunday night.
And on Monday she had a baby girl.
Possibly. But if any of you out there are thinking about knitting anything for Gizmo (mom this includes you) please finish it before March 15! More details on the socks are on Ravelry here.
Speaking of baby knitting – last night while watching the Browns kick some Manning ass on Monday Night Football I started a project for ours:
Who, btw, is growing like crazy. Last week (week 17) they were the size of an onion:
Which is confusing since onions are way smaller than avocados. Instead I prefer to think that at 5.1 inches the baby is the same size as Dexter’s head:
That makes so much more sense.
Oh yeah – I got my hair all chopped off! I donated it to Wigs for Kids. Which is a really, really great cause. I highly recommend doing this if you can – and I figure a little good Karma while pregnant can’t be a bad thing.
So this week the baby is the size of a sweet potato:
Which goes very well with all of the lobster we’ll be eating in Maine. We leave tomorrow and at this point I’m just procrastinating all of the packing….
