Back With Needle in Hand!

I can't put it off any longer. Bubby needs a new frock for re-enacting. I was hoping he'd fit into last year's stuff, even if I had to let it out a bit, but he just grew too much. I was not looking forward to hitting the sewing machine again. However, I'm finding it quite relaxing! His frock is nearly done now, though I haven't decided whether or not to add a collar. He also needs a hat. Last night, I made an apron for me.

Well, it turns out I've developed a lactose intolerance, perhaps preggy related. I can get away with a little cheese, so long as it's not the cheap processed stuff and yogurt doesn't seem to affect me too badly, but milk is out. Ice cream is out, too. I like rice milk, though and it was nice to have an excuse to buy it. I don't get soy milk because soy is dangerous. (www.mercola.com keyword: soy.) Almond milk is good, too, but more expensive and doesn't do well in cold cereals. I give up dairy anyway while nursing if the baby develops colic.

Oh, and I lost 5 lbs too! This is good news because the doctor said I was gaining weight too quickly. The baby is strong, healthy and growing very well. The only drawback is OW! All that growing hurts! I can't wait to meet her! Only 8 more weeks! It's going to go by so fast, especially since May is my favorite month and it always flys by.
