I know I haven't been here for you lately

I feel that way about my flist* but a little bit about J and Sprout as well. For the past week or so, I've just wanted J to take Sprout out as much as possible and give me alone time to relax work on projects.  I went to bed last night with plans to send the two of them out so I could work on a nursing top; but before I fell asleep, I changed my mind. I decided instead to spend the day with them, hoping to have a fun family day "just the three of us" before Junebug gets here. I'm really glad I did.

We went out to eat at a club where there was a kid's birthday party going on, so Sprout got to play and participate. She had fun, and we had fun watching her. A good enough day that I won't go to bed praying, "Please Lord, don't let the baby come now."**

Since tomorrow is my due date (not that I think the baby will necessarily come then), I'm going to do a snippet-style post now. This week, I sewed the dress Sprout is wearing in the photo below and crocheted the belt, too. I also made two sheets for Junebug's Moses basket and three mattress covers.

* In some sense I think I should apologize for this; in other, I know I have a great flist, full of people who understand that I'm not able to give much attention to them right now but who know that I still care what is going on with them...

** Who wants to have her baby after she's felt tired/stressed/pissy all day? Not moi. :P

My dear, it is absolutely WE who should be here for YOU right now, not the reverse ♥

(And your talents are so many--that dress is so pretty. And that second photo is pretty amazing, too: Sprout in flight ^_^)

Sending you all sorts of good thoughts for the days ahead.

Fantastic dress! Wonderful photos! In the flying one, Sprout's face looks so much like yours! Whenever I don't hear from you for a couple days, I now begin to imagine that Junebug has arrived!

you are so crafty and creative. Enjoy the time with your greatest creations...Sprout and Junebug... and the relationship you work on with J. Yes you are exhausted and probly will be for the next few years but you will look back and wonder where the years went and be glad for all the wonderful moments you will remember.
love you all
