Hey-o! 25 weeks and 3 days, and feeling just fine. Although I did just buy a little battery-operated portable fan to take with me to work for a particular patient’s ridiculously hot room. For me! So I don’t have to flap a folder on my face for a half an hour or more. Gestating a human makes you HOT.
Look at all the clothes he already has! I’m a little concerned that everyone is just going to get me more clothes for my baby shower (on November 12th) instead of the registry items, but what can you do? Yesterday Amazon did notify me that a few items had been purchased from my lovely Aunt Lisa and my sweet cousin Susan, so that was a relief.
I mean, I get it, the clothes are ADORABLE, and way more fun to buy than nipple cream or books about getting the baby to sleep or plastic caps to put over your light switches. But we need all that crap, too! We have been living in an Adult World for a very long time.
Ugh, I swear this thing looks better photographed than it does in real life. It’s driving me craaaaazy, I keep re-painting over it. The struggle, oooh the struggle!
The weather is going PNW-Fall-style. Meaning, the forecast for the next 10 days is 60 degrees and cloudy. Merp.
Flashback! I never posted this last year. Here’s me getting my make-up done at M.A.C., in NYC. I kept insisting that the blush be BRIGHTER and consequently wound up with a neon pink blush that I just baaaarely touch the brush to, otherwise I look clown-ish. Which is not the look I’m going for.
When I came back from Boise my Poinsettia looked like this. I guess it missed me?
Look at how good the quilt I made for my mom looks in our guest room!
I didn’t mourn the end of summer as much as I normally do, but I am gonna miss that sunshine.
You have to chase it, around here.
I made baby M. some green curtains to coordinate with the dinosaur border. And by “made curtains” I mean I hemmed two rectangles of fabric on four sides! Yyyyyeah!
Not THAT great, but that didn’t stop us from inhaling the entire package over two days.
On Sunday I went over to my old boss’s house to help paint the little library that her husband built on their front lawn. I went with a rainbow, of course!
She is due this month with baby girl #2. She kindly lent me a really nice “Pea in the Pod” dress to wear to my shower next month. I wonder if it will still fit??!!
Found object at the park yesterday. For cleaning up nature?
Meanwhile, these Rose of Sharon bushes are still blooming beautifully.
Now HERE are some cookies that you should pay attention to, especially if you like shortbread (I do I do) and BUTTER. YUM. 180 calories for two, but who’s (burp) counting? Ta ta for now!
