Here is the latest picture of our little man:

Trashy Jr. at 25 wks in utero

He is quite the little mover.  There were some issues with my placenta placement in the beginning, but luckily it moved right up, and now my entire abdomen is free for him to kick, punch and kung fu to his little Bruce Lee heart out.  He particularly enjoys karate chopping me in the bladder.

I am getting pretty excited, his nursery renovations are coming along nicely.  I will try and get some pics up for that soon.

So, in addition to gettin’ knocked up, Trashy and the baby’s daddy decided to make things official and tie the knot.  So, we planned a wedding, got married, thew a big bbq to celebrate with all our family & friends, and started renovating the baby nursery.  Oh yeah, and we did all this while I was 6 – 7 months pregnant AND working full time.  Doesn’t leave much time for interesting updates on the Trash.

So dear readers, I present to you:

Mr. & Mrs. Trashy

Mr & Mrs Trashy

So, after the ultrasound on Saturday, the baby’s daddy gave me this:

Looks like Trashy is having a shotgun wedding!!!! 🙂

Here is a hint:

Another hint:

And here is le bebe:

And still preggo.

18wks

This Saturday is the big day!  I go for my mid-point ultrasound to make sure if everything is going well, and to find out if the baby is going to be on Team Hamburger or Team Turtle.

Based on my picture, what do you think it’s gonna be?

I can’t believe I’m at the midpoint already.  Once I know the results, I’ll post them here this weekend!

Ok Bloggies, I can come clean now.  There is some more news I have to share with you:

The little peanut is due Oct 22, 2010, just a few days after my 32nd b-day.  CRAZINESS. 

So, needless to say, due to massive barfing and zero energy, I have neither crafted or cooked anything of any substance. 

 

Yes, I am a terrible blog owner.  I have royally sucked at updating this blog, emptiliy promising a new post, then teasing you with grotesque pictures of my beloved, albeit annoying cat.

So.  What’s new?

  • I quit the Doctor’s office.  Y AY.
  • I got a new full time job.  DOUBLE YAY.
  • The boyfriend got a full time job.  YAY again
  • Had some really nice weather last week, very late Springish.  Big freakin’ YAY
  • This week’s weather has been rainy and terrible, however, the grass is getting greener
  • I haven’t cooked or made anything of interest lately
  • I have been reading a lot more, and less time on the computer
  • I listen to CBC talk radio – A LOT

That is pretty much the last few months in a nutshell.  Oh, the excitement, I know.

I am turning into a crazy cat lady, I can’t stop taking pictures of my cat.  These gems are just too much not to share:

Jinx posing pretty on the radiator.

Next a close up of her pretty little face:

Jinx up close and personal.

And finally, the don’t mess with me:

A face only a mother could love.

Man, I forgot seriously how bad I am at knitting. I have learned both the garter and stockinette stitch and that is in in my 20+ years of “knitting”. I have accomplished multiple dishcloths and a scarf. After an evening of several bottles of wine, my friend sent me home with wool, some circular needles and the Knitpicks Two at Once, Toe Up Sock pattern.

After many attempt and swear words, this is the result:

What I've accomplished so far...

I’m really struggling with the cast on.  I can get as far as stitching on two separate groups of 12 stitches move it to the cable, and then the part about “Pick up 12 sts from back purl bump” and I’m lost.  You may as well be speaking Mandarin to me.  So, being the resourceful gal I am, I scour the forums at Ravelry and Knitty, and watched multiple videos on YouTube. I found the “Judy’s Magic Cast-on” technique. Looks simple. I attempted. I failed. Tje next step? Harried visits to friends both local and international to help me whip this yarn into shape.

In other news, I made Coq Au Vin the other night. That, was a non-fail:

Yes, it was delicious.

Also:

Yes, my presentation sucks, but man this was one tasty dinner.
