My Old Man’s daughter called yesterday to say that she is going to be induced tomorrow morning, a day before her due date. The docs think the baby’s shoulders are unusually wide and she is rather petite, so they don’t want to let her go any longer. I’m always biased towards letting the mama’s body do its thing naturally (but who am I to talk? I had every possible medical intervention, due to multiple complications), so I’m a tad disappointed that they are just going to go ahead and take the baby. Still, we’re all excited.
And of course, I had to snap into gear and finally put the buttons on Baby J’s sweater, something I had put off for weeks (and now I know it was with good reason. Man, they were a pain!). But now the entire layette is complete!

I really loved working with the Bernat cotton. Good thing, because I have a ton left and a friend with a baby due in September. The Rowan Soft Baby is super-soft but I got tired of working with it. Boy am I glad to be done with the never-ending baby blanket.
Today is My Old Man’s birthday. He was kind of hoping that Baby J would arrive today. It could still happen. But please, no one call me Granny!
