Today marks the halfway point in expecting little cuddle-baby-covered-in-knitwear. It feels very fast and slow all at once. We tell Audrey "He'll come after Halloween, after Thanksgiving, After Christmas..." I'm sure that's an eternity to her ;)
It's hard to imagine a little baby in the house again after all this time, but I can't wait to see his little face (Why couldnt we be like kangaroos? Then I could peek in at his little face and let him keep cookin'). I'm also curious about what it will be like to have a boy in this place--- where we are a bit heavy on the pink and ballerinas and dolls. But I'm sure once he's here, we wont know what we ever did without him.
Of course thinking of my baby makes me think of mothers of days long past and their wait for their babies. I'm sure there was probably a lot of knitting going on there as well ;) Think of all the little babies born down the centuries that led to us being here. That's a lotta babies!
But here and now, at 20 weeks with 20 (or so) weeks to go, I'm starting to feel some tap tap tapping and he's not much trouble, goes where mama goes, enjoys some Mexican food as often as he can. We'll have to wait til winter to see that little face, but I don't mind.
I'll just keep painting til then-- and knitting~
