Lest you think I've gone and had a baby

So the other day I thought to myself, "Oh!  Diapers!"  As in, "Oh!  There is not a single damn diaper in this entire house!  What is the matter with you?  How could you have not thought of diapers yet?"  And then my other self said to me, "Oh!  You wanna know why I haven't purchased diapers yet?  Maybe it is because I spent my entire summer packing my house up by myself?  Or maybe it is because after I moved to a new state after living apart from my husband for a month he had to leave on a business trip for three more weeks?  "  And really, the conversation just continued to degrade from there.  My initial self decided to give my other self a break and acknowledged that, yes, we've been a little preoccupied.  Then we drove ourselves to Target and bought some stupid diapers.

And if you were wondering the same thing I was wondering...no...buying diapers didn't make the baby come.

So...no.  I haven't had the baby yet.  But I really want to make some kind of drastic change to my hair which has to count as a sign of impending labor right? Right?   Well, that and the rumors that gestation typically lasts about 40 weeks...and it has been 39...plus a little.

But, you know, I'm staying positive.  And knitting.  And taking naps and thinking about how Z can watch a movie and will need little to no direct care while I sleep.  So that's cool.  And I knit.  I actually have a whole mess of knitting to show you but for now, I'm just going to show you my favorite.

Right?  

And that's pretty much all I've got.  Pathetic excuse for a post if you ask me but I suppose it will do for now.  Especially since I know all you people really want to see is pictures of a newborn baby.  Don't try to pretend.  I can see right through you.

Oh one more thing.  I have come to the conclusion that there is not a single comfortable place to sit in our apartment.  Please be advised that if you too are 39 weeks pregnant and you decide to come over I will be unable to offer you a comfortable place to sit.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

Oh I love it! I can't tell you how envious I am of your knitting skills. I dream of dressing my babies in hand-knitted sweaters, hats and booties. Good luck this coming week. That little boy is sure to make his entrance now that you've bought diapers and are wanting a hair change. ;)

Holy moly...your baby will be the best dressed around! And I think a drastic hair change is messes wary with every pregnancy.

That is my favorite sweater. I kind of wish I had the patience to make that sweater in my size.

Hang in there!!! This post does make me smile, I had a similar post just before I had my second kid, and then the next one was the announcement, and looking back, it was funny to see the contrast between the two. You can't stay pregnant forever - I can't wait to hear the news and see baby pics!!! :)

I prefer the pictures of the knitting to pictures of newborns.

What about now, what about now?! Have you had the baby yet? :)

Love ya!

Oh my gosh! You are ridiculous! I'm definitely having knitting envy skills right now. The two sweaters you have shown are unbelievably beautiful. Good luck over the next couple weeks... whether you're in waiting or snuggling and up all night with your new little guy! :)And yes, I can't wait to see pictures.

Ha! That was a much needed laugh on my part.
The knitting is fabulous. Seriously. You give me much encouragement to be more brave with my knitting. :) Now if I can just finish this stupid stockings and move on to something new!!!

I just reread my comment for the first time today. Oh my. hahaha. I was on a phone. *&@# autocorrect.

Is baby here?!?

Charlotte said...

Would you believe me if I told you that I didn't buy newborn diapers until after Babe was born? Because it's true. I survived off the diapers from the hospital and the diapers from the diaper cakes I got at my showers. For real.
