This will be another pretty short update on things. This is also 35 weeks. Ummmm, yeah. Ha, watch me have a seven pound baby and wonder what happened. Well, I won't be wondering. An intense insatiable craving for bbq potato chips is what happened. I'm trying to stay away from them, but they just taste so good... Don't judge me.

Not a lot on the baby front is happening. I've just been growing (obviously) bigger. I get a lot of questions like, "Aren't you ready to get that baby out?" And actually, while I am excited to have this little guy, pregnancy still has not made me miserable, yet. I'll let you know how it stands in a couple of weeks, though. Although, it would be nice to not have to worry about peeing on myself anymore. This child has been grinding on my bladder for several weeks now. But all in all, it's a small complaint. I've heard much worse stories. I've been a busy knitter, though. This past weekend I made booties and a hat (which I hope will fit his head), and today I finished one little mitten. I'll take pictures when I finish the other mitten.

Also, my birthday was a week ago, and my husband got me a serger. Which. is. awesome. I'm pretty excited about it, but I just got it today, so I haven't had time to play with it yet. But I have plans. I also have the material to make 8 receiving blankets for my kid. Yeah. And Christmas is coming, so I have plans for Christmas projects as well. Too bad I can't knit and nurse at the same time. Because that would solve a lot of time issues. And also, my husband? He's awesome. I told him not to get me a serger because it would be kind of expensive, and I totally resigned myself to not getting one after I had already done the research and picked out the one I wanted. But how could I not be super excited to get it anyway? Woot!

We got released from teaching the 3 and 4 year olds at church a couple of weeks ago. A couple of months ago, it would have made me sad, but look at me. I am the Walrus. I can't chase kids very well at the moment, and when this baby shows up, it would be even harder. So I feel pretty grateful. I finally went to Relief Society for the first time in a very long time. And in spite of how much it freaks me out because of my social anxiety, it was really good. It was a good lesson on patterns and examples created in the home, and I want to blog about it, but I can't tonight. My eyelids are drooping. Sorry for the lack of posts and kind of lame content, but I'll post something eventually, I promise, lol.

The belly totally trumps the butt.

And there it is. And I still have 8 1/2 weeks to go. How is this kind of growth even possible?

I know I've been a total slacker and haven't posted in forever, but... I'm just really tired, okay? Also, my sister in law, Shiloh, had her baby this past Sunday, giving her a true reason to celebrate Labor Day. Ha ha! Terrible jokes abound! Her baby is insanely adorable and has lots of hairs on his leetle head. So now I'm next in the family chain of birthing. Ugh, that sounds kind of creepy and gross. I'm not ready, but I'm trying to be. Oh, I'm ready to be holding my baby and loving on him, but I'm not ready for the rest of it, yet. Anyway, I wasn't kidding about being tired. I feel like I've been earning my dough working in the fields all day.
