What I Have Learned...

What I have learned during this pregnancy.
  1. I have to most amazing supporting husband in the world!
  2. I have a wonderful supporting family, near and far.
  3. I am extremely blessed.
  4. Little girls are easier to shop for than boys.
  5. Crocheting.
  6. Monk is a good show.
  7. I miss Liam when he isn't around.
  8. Eleanor is a mover! (I'm thinking a gymnast)
  9. I have some wonderful friends!
  10. Every pregnancy is very different.
  11. Don't put off things you can do now, because you might not be able to do them later. Example: I am a horrible cleaner... but now that I can't it sucks because I have to watch Patrick drown himself in house work because I didn't do it when I could.
  12. Bleeding and not knowing why sucks!
  13. Having a root canal while being pregnant is not good. Especially since you can't take anti-inflammatories.
  14. Did I mention that I have the most amazing husband in the world.
  15. Colleen is an amazing quilter!
  16. My brother Danny is awesome, and is such a big help!
  17. Still love Diet Pepsi... (thanks for the acquired addiction Mom)
  18. Craving doughnuts.... I hate doughnuts!
  19. Help may be hard to ask for, but worth it when you do.
  20. I love my family and can't wait for our newest addition.
Its stands at 3 more days! I am scheduled for a C-Section on the 30th. I just hope I can make it those 3 days. I have been in quite a bit of pain. I can't really walk anymore. Patrick pushed me around in a wheelchair today because I needed to pick out yarn for some projects in the hospital. What I am hoping to do in the hospital is a hat for Patrick, Liam and Eleanor. Patrick asked for a plain black beanie. I'm going to make Liam an Aviator hat. and Eleanor gets a Pom Pom hat. Oh I'm also wanting to make a cocoon its a photography prop for infants.

I have been having a lot of fun learning to crochet. Colleen came over and helped me a couple weeks ago. I have made most of a frog. Some hats, a diaper cover and some headbands. I'm super excited to have her here and in my arms. I know that our whole family is quite excited to have her here as well. Liam knows something is happening but I don't think he quite knows what. He knows her name where she currently resides. But other than that I think its going to be interesting to see how he reacts to her.
