Baby jumps in! Haha.
It was Mother's Day when Ali told me that she'd taken three pregnancy tests and they'd all said the same thing... and that she had a few more test sticks, just in case, but was pretty sure they'd all have the same -- positive -- result! That was pretty awesome news to hear on Mother's Day... and I especially loved that it was mine-all-mine for a while. Delicious.
As you may recall, we had wedding planning quite heavy in the rotation at the time, so the baby news sort of took a back seat.
I HEARD MY GRANDBABY'S HEARTBEAT!!
The estimate is that Little Zim is around 16 weeks old, and the due date is early to mid January.
This is pretty much the frosting on my cake right now! I try not to hyperventilate when I think about all.the.things.to.knit... a blanket? a bonnet? a sweater? a hat? a toy? Fourteen of each? Because that's not even the tip of the iceberg in terms of how many super amazingly beautiful patterns there are for each of those things.
I just smile when I ask Ali how she's feeling and she says, "I am HUGE," and... oh my, isn't she CUTE? Heheh.
I simply cannot wait.
