Update.....

67 days, really! That's all I have until this baby gets here.....*sigh* I'm ready but I think I need more time. As you can see time has not been my friend lately, I seem to run out of it frequently. Maybe it's the attention the little guy needs or maybe it's that my house is still in a disarray but we are coming to the end & I am happy to say that today we get electricity in the room & the tile in the shower will be done. Next weekend we will have running water! Then the fun begins, decorating! Any ideas ladies? Anything in your bedroom that you were so glad you put, painted or planted in there that you want to share?We did get a bed (our old one is a queen size) & bedding. I searched for bedding for hours on the internet, with no luck, it's so hard to tell the colors and what you are going to get quality-wise. So I was off to many different stores in our area & settled for some Martha Stewart Bedding from Macy's & was pleased once I got it home & the colors worked. I still need to get the bed skirt on & Matt is going to help me make a headboard. I found this link, it looks simple...so it's off to JoAnn's for fabric!
Jack had his surgery last week & I am glad to say is doing great! No infection, no split stitches & he can finally get a real bath tonight after 5 days! He was a real trooper. I got to save his little hospital gown & it now has a special spot with his older brother's hospital gown. Justin was 3 when he got his tonsils out, now when Cole gets here he will have to accquire one too!

Sadly knitting has still been scarce. Ruby has given me a little bit of a headache & I am thinking she needs to be put away for a little bit so we can get a break from each other. I am making a ring bearers pillow for my SIL's wedding in June so I have to start that. It's really like knitting 2 dishcloths & sewing them together, it shouldn't be that hard & my little man will be carrying it down the aisle. In the meantime I did start my conatiner garden on the deck & I love it. I have so many different herbs. Chamomille, Stevia & Catnip for tea. Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Oregeno, Chives, Parsley & Cilantro for cooking. Around Memorial Day I will add the veggies! Yummy!

Hope all is well with you all.....
