My first knitting project!!

So, I have been taking a knitting class, not sure if I have mentioned that here or not. I started on my first project, a blanket for Charlotte. I am so proud of myself because it's looking great. I had to go and get some help from the woman I am taking the class from because I had messed up. She helped me out. We had to take a lot of it out, so it was like I was starting over again. That's OK, I spent today working on it so I could catch up. I did A LOT today! So, I wanted to post a picture of my progress so far.

Dave's Moira Tattoo

Today Dave and I went to the tattoo place and he finally got his tattoo for Moira. It's beautiful. The guy did an amazing job and he spent a lot of time getting it perfect. :) Now I want one, but I have to wait until Charlotte is born!

I'm still around.

I am here, I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. I have just been busy and have had a lot going on lately.
I am currently 20 weeks 5 days pregnant and starting to feel baby Charlotte moving a lot more. She will sometimes startle me and have a party in my belly. It seems like her kicks and movements are getting stronger, which I LOVE!!!
Here I am at 20 weeks 1 day, last Saturday.

I have started taking a knitting class. I am so excited. It's Tuesday nights from 7-9, which for me is a little late, but it's fun and I love the place where I am taking classes. Last night I was doing so well, that my teacher got me started on my first project. I am making a blanket for Charlotte. I picked out a multi-colored yarn that I hope will look nice when it's done. I am hoping that I can learn to make a hat that matches after I am done. I eventually want to learn how to make shorties and longies, etc. for Charlotte to wear with her diapers! A friend of mine offered to make me a soaker for Charlotte, so I bought the yarn and sent it to her. I can't wait to get it!!
I found a wonderful woman on Hyena Cart who makes beautiful shorties, longies, etc. Wool Baby Knits is the name of the store.
Here is a picture of the shorties! They are so adorable.

I have been trying to decide what I want to get for a coming home outfit for Charlotte. I have tons of clothes, but I just want to get a few things that I bought just for her.
This is what I want for sure!

I also picked out a few little things from Carters, so we'll see. I am going to get the Gymboree outfit for sure. I am hoping it will go on sale. They are having a sale now, but that outfit isn't on sale. Hmmm.....what to do!? If I bought it now, I could get double Gym Bucks, so I don't know.

Today we have a snow day, but the snow hasn't started yet. It's supposed to get going soon though and be really bad tonight!
Next week is our vacation week and I am so looking forward to the week off. We are going to make some day trips and maybe go down to see my in-laws. Other than that, sleeping in will be in order. Today right now, I am lounging in bed. I am getting hungry, so I think I might venture downstairs to figure out some breakfast. I also want to work on my blanket for Charlotte.
