This is not my favorite photo, but it was the best of the bunch. It was definitely one of those "do I really look like that" moments! I am 26 weeks now. It is really going by fast (check back at week 37 or so and see how fast I think it is going then). This Baby is really active, except for when Daddy is trying to feel kicks, or our midwife is trying to listen to the little heart. The Baby kicks for Esme' all the time. They have quite the relationship already. She talks to and hugs the belly every morning when she wakes up and often throughout the day. I think this little one will have more than one "Mommy" in the house! She has been very patient with the endless weeks it takes for a Baby to be ready to come out. We have told her that the Baby will be here just in time for her birthday... that seems good enough for her!
I received this pretty yarn in a Knitting Supply Swap. I decided it would make adorable shorts, and, if I do have a boy, I can pass them along to another lucky Mama. I knitted them with just a tiny bit of the contrasting color at the top, got to the gusset and was running dangerously low on the main color. I was also unhappy with one of my short rows so after sitting unfinished in my knitting bag for a couple weeks I frogged them and started over, adding more pink at the top so I would have plenty of variegated yarn for the body and legs.
So... after all this I figure I am guaranteed to give birth to a boy baby, right?! Niko suggested that I knit a pair of boy shorts too, to even the odds! I think I will go ahead and knit a pair of boy shorts. That way no matter who this little one is we'll have a cute wardrobe waiting~

I completed this set last night. It is so hard for me to believe that a Baby's head will fit into that tiny little hat! I dyed the yarn myself and it is so soft and pretty! It is exciting to see little Baby things start to pile up. I still have all of Esme's clothes, so as soon as we find out who this little one is I will know if I should get them out and wash them, or donate them and go shopping!
~Only 17 weeks left!!
