The kitten who thinks he's the baby

Work has been/will be way too crazy this week to form any sort of sensical blog post, but I thought I'd share this picture my husband took of our cat, who most definitely thinks that he is the baby, and all this new baby stuff must all be for him of course. ;)

Crib Bed Skirt

So this week Amy, over at Amy's Creative Side, has been having a challenge over the past week. We needed to pick one project goal for the week, and complete that goal. With about a million things left to do for the nursery and so amount of time less than a month left until baby, I decided I wanted to make the crib bed skirt by project for the week.

So, one episode of Dexter, 4 episodes of Law and Order:SVU, and 5 episodes of Farscape later, I finally finished the crib skirt. One lesson learned: ruffles are deceptively more difficult to get even than any bed skirt tutorial suggests. :)

Just the skirt:

Sorry for the terrible photography; just two more days until our DSLR arrives and I promise the quality of photos will go up....

P.S. Be sure to checkout Amy's Creative Side if you're interested in the weekly challenge as well. It really helped keep me motivated to get it done this weekend. :)

Counting the days

It's hard to believe that my pregnancy is already almost over. In a matter of weeks I'll get to hold little Paul in my arms (and regain my ability to roll myself over in bed without help!). The last 8 1/2 months have rushed by in a blur, and while slightly nervous, and well aware there are a million things to get done beforehand yet, I can't help but count down the days. Just 30 more days until my due date, September 26.

As I move into motherhood and will be disappearing out of the public eye for a few months, I thought it might be nice to start a blog where I can share my experiences with family and friends, along with the plethora of photos and cute videos that will begin to flood once the baby arrives. In addition, I hope to be able to use this as a place to reflect on life in general, and hope that readers will not take my desire to express my feelings out loud be an opportunity for hateful speech or judgement. If you're not interested in what I have to say, then please just find somewhere else on the internet to hang out - no one is making you stay.

And, as the title promises, here is a cute kitten. :)
