Preparing For The Ride Of My Life

Now Playing:
Most Haunted
The Ostrich Inn

As you may or may not know, we are now expecting a little Pixie-Kow. (I'm the pixie as Yarn Pixie and Stu is the cow as Deekow, one of his game characters.)

6 Weeks Pregnant
Well, here I am 6 weeks pregnant (with no make-up, ick.). I'm not actually showing yet, that's the bit of belly I've had before getting pregnant. My first OB appointment will be just after 8 weeks. I hope to take a picture every four weeks: 4,8,12,16, etc. Unfortunately I didn't think about until 6 weeks, so this is where it will start. Which is really okay, I look the same.

I also had just cut about three scragily, thin inches off my own hair to get off all the damage. Stu is now calling me a haircutter (like you would call one a murderer) and a hair freak and telling me, "You look like a boy!" Of course he doesn't mean any of this, but it's quite upsetting for him when I cut ANY of my hair, but he's trying to understand that if hair is going to grow long and healthy, it needs to start healthy... no split ends.

So, in expectance of this Pixie-Kow, I've now started this...

Around The World For Baby
I can't stay away from it, it's exciting! I did it in colors that would suit a boy or a girl, since we don't know what it is yet.

Diagonal Knit Baby Blanket
I've already had this blanket done for a future baby, which Stu bought the yarn and gave to me as a birthday gift with the intention of my making a blanket for our first baby.

So, I figured it was my turn to pick colors and crocheted this current one, since the first was knit.

Plus, my mom's sweater has been frustrating me. Apparantly I can't read the sweater pattern very well because I've ripped out sections several times now and just recently ripped the whole front out to start it over.

Ashley & That Baby
Ashley and Danika visited us Friday night while Stu went out for drinks with Justin and some others. We watched Food Network, Friends, danced to Lady Gaga and had ice cream. It was a fun night.

In our continuing quest to watch all things Star Trek, we watched Star Trek IV The Voyage Home last night. My favorite Star Trek movie so far. It's so funny!

Awe, I can't wait to see all of your belly shots throughout the upcoming weeks and months. CONGRATULATIONS (again) on the little pixie-kow! So happy for you guys.

Just wait 'til all the pregnancy hormones really kick in and give you even more gorgeous, flowing locks! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you to have a wonderful pregnancy with all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff (well, there's always some, so as little of the bad stuff as possible)! Are you craving anything weird yet? With Christian I craved white rice with soy sauce for the first couple months. With Spencer, I just wanted sweets like you wouldn't believe (Coldstone, anyone?)... Can't wait to see the belly shots! Love ya!
