Today I hit the 10 week mark. I've hit the double digits. I'm a quarter of the way there. On one hand it seems like January and February have just flown by. On the other, it feels like I've been in the first trimester forever. I do have to disagree with my ticker's statement that there are only 210 days remaining. That sounds like an awfully large number to be qualified by the term "only".
On Friday, I went to my favorite yarn shop to buy supplies for a baby blanket I want to crochet. I realize that earlier, I proclaimed that there would be no knitting for this baby until the second trimester. But I said nothing about crocheting! Anyhow I've decided to go ahead and start the Tiramisu baby blanket that I spotted on Ravelry. I'm using the Blue Sky organic cotton yarn in brown, which is incredibly soft and luxurious. When I was paying for it, the little old lady next to me asked what I was making. When I told her a baby blanket, she exclaimed "Brown, for a baby? How odd!" A bit irritated I told her how brown was a more popular color these days, and how the ribbon that will go along the blanket can be tailored to whether the baby is a boy or girl (I'm thinking a nice pink for a girl and a teal for a boy). She is probably thinking some mom out there will be horrified by this blanket for her shower gift, not knowing that I'm the mom.
The rest of my weekend was rather quiet and uneventful. We went and saw Juno on Saturday night. I really liked it, but I'm sure glad that I didn't go pre-pregnancy. The teenager's comments on being pregnant and having a baby to the adoptive mom, were scary insensitive even if they were very true to the parts being played in the movie. I thought the ending was good and it ultimately shed a good light on adoption, which seems to be an option that fewer people consider these days when faced with an unwanted pregnancy.
