While Whit's away...

I get to play!  Whit went fishing again this weekend, so I had a few days to myself. 

(This pic is from his last fishing trip, and even though he didn't get a picture of him with the fish he caught, he assures me that he did catch a couple :)

Thursday night I got to babysit a two month old, he was so cute!  I visit teach his mom, and she and her husband wanted to run across the street to go to the temple.  I was more than happy to watch their little one.  He was super cute and we had a great time, until he decided he wanted to cry for a bit.  Good practice I guess--babies get heavy after holding them for awhile!  So I counted that as my workout for the day :)  And I bounced with him on the yoga ball for a bit.  He liked that for a little while.  Anyways, that was fun!

Friday I rode the train to work, and as I was turning my phone to vibrate I saw that Whit had put a cute note in my calendar for that day.  He is so thoughtful :)  So I worked all day and then ran a few errands on my way home and then I put up these curtains in the spare room!

 I guess one of my "symptoms" of pregnancy is that I have developed a snoring habit.  It's getting so bad that Whit has taken to sleeping in the spare room :)  But he says he hasn't been sleeping very well in there, since it is so light.  So I'm hoping these curtains will help!  Before we just had the roller shades but I guess the light from the streetlights still came through.  So hopefully this will be a happy surprise for him when he gets home :)

Then on Saturday I slept in, cleaned the house, did laundry, made some zucchini bread, painted my toenails, sewed a ruffle on a dress that was too short, went grocery shopping, and watched a documentary called "The Business of Being Born."  It was pretty interesting.  And a busy day.  But it felt good to get a lot of things done.

I posted a picture like this on facebook yesterday, but I wanted to have one here in the blog--since someday I'll make a book of all of our posts.  And this big belly needs to be recorded for posterity :)  But this is the dress that I sewed the ruffle on the bottom.  It's a little on the long side now, but I would much rather have it be too long than too short.  And it was super fun to use the sweet sewing machine that my mum and dad gave me for my birthday.  I have decided that I really like sewing and I can't wait to do some more projects.  I have some leftover fabric from the crib skirt that I made.  I think I'm going to attempt to make a quilt with that.  Maybe that's what I can work on the next time Whit goes fishing and leaves me alone for the weekend...   :)
