Snippet Sunday

This has been the week of Sewing.  I made pajamas (top and footed bottom) for Sprout for Christmas...all without a pattern. Why yes, I did have a lot of headaches during this process, thanks for asking. :P But the result was well worth it. I'm not promising I'll get a photo of her in them, but I'll try. I've already had to wash them twice; I need to make her change out of them before she breakfasts to keep them clean and and I don't have the energy for that. Why does she have to be messy like I am? Why can't she take after her papa in this case?*

I also helped J make himself some pajama pants. To top it off, I made a nursing pillow for Junebug today. I didn't have enough fabric in my stash to simply cut out and sew together two pieces of cloth, so  I had to do some patchwork piecing and ended up finishing too late** to take a photo.  Again: Maybe later.

* She is a total comedian/actress, and that she does get from me. Today, she was pretending to be Coral, Nemo's mother, who got eaten by a barracuda at the beginning of the movie. J had to carry her to the car (Coral was totally devoured, but apparently there was enough of her left in Sprout's incarnation for J to bring her home from their slackline outing), drive her home, and tote her upstairs to me, where he proceeded to tell me what happened. I acted the part of grieving son (I get to be Nemo and J is Marlin), but even TEARS and sobbing did not make the kid budge. She would not be revived so steadfast did she hold to her role. I'm telling you, the kid is good. :P

** Had an appt with the gyno today. Just started my 8th month. The doctor tells me that at the moment, Junebug weighs 2.29 kg and will likely gain one more kilo before birth. That will make him/her 100-200 grams heavier than Sprout.  Not too big. Junebug still hasn't turned yet, but there is time for that...
