Here are a last few craft pics. I have one more project that I need to get done, but there is no rush on it and it is super simple.
Little baby booties. I am so happy I finally figured out this pattern. I love how they turned out and I will probably be making a few more pairs for the little guy.
Here is a Christmas gift all rolled up.

I spent most of the day Saturday and Sunday baking cookies for hubby to take to work. Usually I do it around Christmas, but with the little guy coming I figured I would do it now. Plus they have been really good about this whole deal with his messed up school schedule. There are sugar cookies, ricotta cheese, chocolate chip, Andes mint, oatmeal raisin, and chocolate cherry.
And here is a pic of the 9 month pregnant belly that kept getting in the way. I have been horrible about taking pictures this time around. This is actually the only one I have. I can't believe that I am due in less than a week. I am thinking I will go at least a few days late, but you never know.

I have made some progress on my craft projects. I am happy to say that I only have a few small things left to do. I'm hoping to get them mostly done by the end of the week. Of course that assumes that everything goes as planned and I know that won't happen around here!
This isn't the best picture of my blanket I made for my friend's baby, but I forgot to take one before I wrapped it up.
This is a table runner I made for my grandma. She is such a hard person to buy for and she doesn't have a lot of room for knick knacks. I figure this will look great on her coffee table.
Here is the back. I'm not in love with this fabric, but it does fit in with the leaf/flower theme of the front fabrics.
Here is the front of little man's birth announcement. You can't really tell from the picture, but the Welcome is printed on the computer and the baby is a stamp that I embossed. It is a blurry on the one edge because I smudged the ink. Also, there is a line of swirls and dots that I embossed with clear powder so it just gives it a little sheen.

Cooper and I were sick all weekend. I missed a friend's baby shower because of it which sucks. Jeremy's schedule is still all messed up. Hopefully we will know something tonight, but who knows. I have hit the miserable part of pregnancy. I am sore all the time and can't sleep. This little nameless guy has to stay put for a few more weeks, but I am so done being pregnant.
I have started nesting some just hard to do when you have no energy. We did get the freezer restocked with hopefully enough stuff to get us through the end of the year. We found this little meat place not far from the house that has awesome prices and quality. We ended up buying 65 pounds of various stuff for $170. I spent most of the afternoon yesterday weighing it out and freezer packing. I still have to get a few baskets for the deep freeze to keep in organized, but at least it is all in there. Next on my list is to do some baking for the freezer.
I am stressing out about not having a name for the baby, not having everything done, and worrying about what to do with the kids when I am in labor. My MIL will be coming out, but not until I am in labor and if this one goes like the last two I will probably only be in labor about 2 hours. They live 3 hours away on a good day.
Yeah, I am stressing.
