First, despite a meager showing in the comment section yesterday (especially since more than three times the number of people visited than commented), thank you to those who did comment! It was nice hearing from you all. Also, I will still be donating at least $25, if not $50 or more, to Kiva, mostly because I really want to.

Second, I think I have found the baby blanket I want to crochet for my own little Sweet Pea (current nickname of the baby). It's here if you want to see it (it's a PDF document), but if not, I'll describe it for you anyway. It's cream-colored with a chocolate-brown ribbon border and a scalloped edge. Perfect for a boy or a girl, and I'll start on it just as soon as I finish up the baby sweater I'm knitting that I started way back when I re-emerged on the blogging scene.

My mom told me I need to start looking for a quilt pattern so that she can make Sweet Pea a quilt. I'm starting to get even more excited, if that was even possible. Everyone is ridiculously excited. The other day my sister called me as she was looking up my progress (on a pregnancy week-by-week calendar) to let me know what was going on with the baby this week (like I hadn't already read about 3 of those myself). My sister-in-law (brother's wife) told me she's excited, especially since it's me and not her (she's still young). I told her I was excited about that fact too, since I'm the oldest and want to have the first baby.

Finally, I haven't posted this yet, and I don't know why. We found out our due date: May 17th, 2008 (coincidentally, the same day Alexa is due with her twins). I both can't wait for it to get here and want it to take it's time getting here.

I'm an ass! I was going to comment yesterday - but then went off in search of a "funny" post that I had read recently, didn't find one, got distracted and when I remembered to come back and comment, I was laying in bed about to take a nap and I thought Oh! I will comment as soon as I get up. And then I was groggy and avoided the computer all together and therefore I am very lame.

Sorry. :(

AND that is a beautiful blanket - it makes me want to learn to crochet so I can whip one up (haha!) for Baby B! I want to do SOMETHING special but I'm still knitting the triplet blankets. Ay yi yi. :)

Someone crocheted a blanket like that for Bub when he was a baby, and he still sleeps with it - it is very beloved.

May is a very nice time to have a baby. When I was in the hospital after giving birth to the Pie, one of the nurses regaled me with all the reasons why the ONLY time to have a baby is March (this was in July). If it were up to me, though, I would've picked May: a great time for new beginnings.

May 17th is almost exactly 1 month after my birthday. Therefore I deem it a very good due date!

I love the blanket you picked out.
