I've got another of my little vintage-y aprons (newly made from vintage fabrics, replicating a vintage style) that can be worn as either a smock or a half-apron, and a matching tea towel for you. If you want to enter your name, leave a comment - and share the love, pass the word. I'll pick a name when I'm slightly less cranky. That will probably be next week. Around Wednesday. Yes, I'll hopefully have a darling bundle in my arms and be far less cranky next Wednesday. Unless, of course, I'm right about this perpetual state of pregnancy, then I'll still draw a name, but I'll probably be cranky.

I had the baby?? Well, I didn't.
If you've ever had a baby, or been married to a lady who's had a baby, you'll know what I'm going through. I'm done. Totally done being pregnant. The baby, on the other hand, does not seem to get this message. This week has been particularly difficult as it started out with what I thought were immanent signs of labor (stomach flu symptoms), but no, turns out I most likely had the flu. It's the worst feeling to constantly be anticipating something you really don't have control over. You would think it's no big deal, the baby has to come out sometime, right?? Well I don't think so. I think I might just end up being terminally pregnant. Sounds ridiculous, but that's really how it feels. You mamas, you know.
Well, I have been working a bit. Sewing and knitting my fingers to the bone. Getting ready to try the cloth diapers with this little one. I didn't want to try fitted diapers like I did with Finn, but decided to just go the pre-fold and wool cover route. And in an attempt to be so very resourceful, I made my pre-folds from old flannel blankets and t-shirts that were going to the rag-bag anyways, so my cloth-diapers have cost me next to nothing - we'll see if it actually works out. I have most of my wool covers made, and now they just need to be lanolized, and I will need to make some more pre-folds, but I think I have time, seeing as this baby is never coming and I'm just going to be pregnant for the rest of my life.
And, what do you know, this is my 500th post. My, oh, my. Because it's the cool "500th post" thing to do, I decided I would have a little give-away.
