What else is new?

I’ll tell you!  I finally have an induction date – June 16th…5 days before my due date.  Now, Anthony is more than welcome to come early, but he’s gone “starfish” on me, and refuses.

Also, a few weeks ago we got a kit (baby bunnies are called kits) and she is a Satin Angora – she has red fur, so I named her Scarlett O’Hare.  Yes, I’m that corny.  We got her partly because my hormones are going crazy about all things “baby” and partly because I’ll be able to take her beautiful fur to spin!   And lastly because maybe the kids will like them…but that was just a bonus.

The dogs and cat are used to her now, and they sniff at each other through the cage.  Flora and I go into the x-pen and hang out with her…Scarlett loves Flora!

And between doctor visits (I have three today) I’ve been knitting (that is one sexy beetcha there)

A cabled vest – pattern Pembroke Vest – for Flora and Anthony

And a very loud cabled sweater that I still have to straighten out and sew together…my back just isn’t up to it right now.

Today I had another ultrasound and got to see Anthony – all 6 pounds 6 ounces!  Okay, here’s another gratuitous picture of Flora.

    Ooooooh Jen can’t wait till the 16th and hear the good news, 6lbs is a lovely size, not too small or too big. Good luck, I’ll be waiting to hear the news. Flora is adorable and so is Scarlett. The knitting is so cute. Keep resting. Love Vanessa

    You are doing something …. a craft project like no other…. one that just takes 20+ years til you can say it is completed and you are ready to let it be shown to the world in all it glory.

    Your baby will be beautiful … especially if you go by your little girl.

    Happy pregnancy and prayers will be with you.

    I have been wondering what you have been up to. I have missed your podcasts. I finally made the effort to look up your blog. Take care of yourself and Anthony and hopefully we will hear you on the “other side”. The kids and family come FIRST!!!
