I can say this has been one of the toughest years of my life. Many people don't know, but my husband and I experienced a miscarriage earlier this year. It was hard on both of us and we really didn't think we wanted to have another child until we got pregnant. But that loss has made our relationship even closer and it makes you really appreciate what you have in your life.
I am currently 10 weeks and 4 days today. I had my second appointment with my doctor this morning and I had a second ultrasound just to make sure the baby is doing well -- and she or he is. I'm due in March 2008 just 2 days after my husband's birthday. We finally told the whole family today, and everyone is so excited and happy for us. I will keep saying a pray for the baby to continue to grow and be healthy.

My oldest some will be starting school in just 2 weeks and everyone in the house is all a buzz. Jalen and I went to his kindergarten orientation this morning, and he wanted to take is backpack and all his school supplies with him! I told him, he only had a few more days and his wishes will come true. He just smiled at me.
Yesterday, August 12th was my husband and I seventh wedding anniversary! We didn't do much. He did have yesterday and today off from work and he took the whole family out to lunch - which was wonderful. No cooking for me!!! Sometimes, I can't believe it as been 7 years. Then I look at the kids. They are a great reminder of how much I love my husband and the family we chose to create.

I have been working on my Dress with Eyelets for the past few evenings after the kids are in the bed. I had to take out the eyelet row a few times to get is correct, but I think I did a good job on the modifications to the pattern to knit it in the round.You can see the decreases I had to do to make the cute little eyelets. This pattern is from the Baby Knits for Beginners book by Debbie Bliss. I saw the dress on another blog and thought it was so cute that I had to make it. Keep in mind, I have to sons, but someone in my life will have a daughter one day. And there daughter will be really cute in this dress.
I am thinking about making a pair of the Saartje's Booties to go with this dress. If you haven't seen what they look like here is the link to the pattern: http://members.home.nl/tdpj/Patronen/Bootees/Saartjes%20bootees.pdf . Happy knitting.
