Okay so my buddy just uploaded this picture to Tumblr, and it is soooo cute. Look at how in love they look. Either that or one is eating the other one's eyeball like a bit of melon.
Yeah, it's been a long day, but I actually came up with a pattern for an owl stuffed animal and a baby beanie. If they come out as good as I hope they will I will post the patterns with some pictures.
Fingers crossed. Also I have been on a forum for soon to be mommies, it's been nice to talk to people in the same point as me. Comforting.
Ta-ta for now.

It's 1:45 a.m. and I cannot sleep for the life of me. I have watched the same episodes of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, Ugly Americans, and South Park like 3 times now. I have been very excited to put together my hospital bag and my diaper bag, and honestly haven't done much else. I've been knitting a little bit, working on a big flower headband for baby. Really though all I want to do is pack baby clothes and shit so I can play with all the awesome things I have for her. I wish she'd hurry up.
Baby daddy is sleeping behind me, he looks ridiculous with the pooch dreaming next to him. I'd like to go to sleep but I'm like, sort of wide awake. The kind of wide awake where you are actually competely exhausted. The fun kind.
My next issue is how much I miss my kitty. She is still at our apartment until we have to move her out, when she will be going to live with a friend until we have our own place again. Boo. :(
That picture just reminded me is all. I'm obsessed with her and I haven't even seen her in weeks. So ready to have a place where I can snuggle her again.
Alright I'm going to go try and lay down, hopefully get some sleep. YEAH RIGHT.
Ta-ta for now.

I havent been on in a couple of days. Saturday my mom threw me a surprise baby shower. It was really nice, lots of family, close friends, and a ton of adorable stuff! I love my mom, she is so awesome.
Anyway, so I made an adaptation of a pattern for booties I found online and I made a few sets of my own.
Here is the pattern:
I used size 6 needles, and it worked out perfectly, but I guess it depends on how you want them to look. I used generic pink and white "baby yarn" but you can use whatever you want, obviously.
Cast on 33 stitches.
Knit 12 rows, basic knit.
Begin Decrease for instep:
Row 1- K13, K2together, K3, K2together, K13 (31 stitches)
Row 2- K12, K2together, K3, K2together, K12 (29 st.)
Row 3- K 11, k2together, k3, k2tog, k11 (27st.)
Row 4- K10, k2tog, k3, k2tog, k10 (25st.)
Row 5- K9, k2tog, k3, k2tog, k9 (23st.)
Row 6- K8, k2tog, k3, k2tog, k 8 (21st.)
Now you should have 21 stitches if you did it right.
Now to make the little lip on the top of the booties:
Row 1- Knit across
Row 2- Purl across
Repeat 1-2 twice more.
Bind off all stitches.
Sew inside out and then flip right side out. They should look like little feeties now.
You can add pom pom's or bows, anything you want as long as it is securely fastened so it isn't a choking hazzard.
Here is an example:

So I got a changing table today in the mail from Chris' mother. It's the totally ridiculous one I put on the registry when she said my choice was boring, which looking back, it was pretty boring and this one is really nice, so she was right. Fuck.
So the piggy is almost done, and the kitten is finished. Here is a picture of the finished kitten.
