Today at noon I went over to have my ultrasound scan to see what the little baby and the placenta are up to. Hangin’ out and sucking on it’s hand is what the baby is doing (and apparently it has masses of hair!)… and still getting in the way is what the placenta is doing. I have called and spoken to my doctor who has suggested that we come in on Monday to discuss the possibility of a caesarian. So! This may just well be our last weekend of coupledom before we embark on familydom. A weekend of treats is in store I think… treats? Where do we start? Movies? Dinners? Breakfasts? Shopping? Non-stop Sims Marathon? Or do we just take advantage of the peace and sleep?
More felt stuff… little palm size felt animals:

  1. claire! i’m thinking about you in this week before Big Decisions are made! take a comfy pillow to the hospital, and my mother says to always wear something white when in labor. some brasilian thing, i think.anyway, lots of cheery thoughts for you, big-P and baby-x!
    p.s. the felties are simply the most adorable. R. is right they look like early matt groening.

  2. keeping my fingers crossed for you and big-p. wishing you lots of luck today.

  3. I have an 11 week old son (by c-section) and my suggestion is that you sleep as much as you can over the weekend. Good luck!

  4. What cute stuffed animals! You’re very inspiring, I want to run and make my own.Anyway, your description of your life-change from coupledom to familydom makes me smile. Wishing you the bestest of luck!

  6. The Feltys are soo cute! If they don’t have character now, they will after baby gums them up!
    Have the bestest weekend, whatever you decide to do!

    I think I rather like knowing that the baby has a mess of hair!

    Those little felt critters are adorable :). You really are too talented. Enjoy your weekend!

    I am jealous – your stuffed pets are so cute! Remembering those weeks before the first baby makes me all smushy inside… savour it all…

  15. Have a wonderful Pre-Family Weekend! You must be terribly excited. (We still have 30 weeks to go before our little one zaps our couple status away…)
    The best of luck to you and new baby!!!

  16. Well, at least there’s only one of ’em, right?
    Really nice work. The red bunny reminds me of a cute comic character from Matt Groenings early comics.

    Didn’t know Sim City 4 was coming. Maybe I’d better start playing SC3 soon, it already went on sale at local discount supermarket chains and my copy’s still wating on the shelf unwrapped..

    Best wishes and merry christmas,

  17. Blessings to your little baby and your soon to be little three person family. You know three is a magic number! :)Our little sweetie is nearly 4 months old and is just such a joy to us.
    I really like the toys you made. How do you put them together – sewing them closed without exposed stitching?

  18. Best wishes to you and your family!
    Your wee felt friends are very sweet.

    I just thought you should know that.

  30. How exciting! (The imminent birth and the adorable felties.)
    Maybe you can do a little of everything this weekend – everyone keeps telling us to sleep while we can, but I feel this pressure to createcreatecreate since I’m not sure how much time we’ll get later! Just enjoy yourself and relax.

    I’ll be sending happy, peaceful birth prayers your way.

  31. My fingers are crossed! So exciting! Now, if only that darn magazine would come in the mail so I can ship you out your BabyGAP! Hehehehe.

  32. Good Luck Claire. I hope you are getting a lot of sleep – apparently that is the one thing we’ll miss after all of this.
