Nope, the kiddo isn’t here, yet…but his blanket is finished!
These colors are next to impossible for me and my poor photography skills (not to mention the contractions I’m currently having) to photograph, so this will have to do. I thought this thing would never get seamed up! Now that it is all assembled, I love it! All of my seams aren’t perfect, but it’s so fun how the x’s in the miters all line up throughout the blanket. T-Bone found the seaming process rather enjoyable and has already laid claim to this blanket.
Little does he know that he’ll soon have to share! On the baby front, I have been having pretty consistent contractions since yesterday afternoon, but they aren’t strong enough yet to be doing anything except making me uncomfortable. I realize that this is probably nothing in comparison to the real deal which will come soon, just an inconvenience. Anyway, the doctor is concerned about his size (they think he’s a big baby), so she’s scheduled an induction for Friday. That wouldn’t be my first choice of how to have things happen, but maybe labor will pick up before then. At any rate, the beast will arrive by sometime this weekend at the latest. The husband is taking some time off tomorrow, so we’ll be able to enjoy the afternoon and be well rested before the upcoming hospital stay and sleepless nights which are ahead of us.
