I'll try upload some pics from the ipad later @French Pear. Mostly just quick easy things because my baby brain doesnt let me get too fancy with knitting lol
My youngest is 3 next month, I'm finding him quite the handful lately. He isn't potty trained either, smart but very lazy. There's a couple of us with toddlers?

I'm so jealous of anyone crafty, I just have no skill or patience!
Yeah I have a DD who is nearly 2.5, she's not yet toilet trained either, I had been meaning to get onto it but I'm letting it go whilst I'm on bed rest as I can't pick her up. She is very smart and understands, I think with her it's easier to wait till she is ready... That's what I've told myself I'm wondering how we will go as I get further along with a toddler and heavily pregnant, I can't imagine it's easy!

Yeah shes born at the start of Feb so just on 2.5 now. I'm lucky that she's pretty happy to watch tv on the days I don't feel up to anything like today. But I feel bad when we don't do any of the stuff she enjoys like going to playgroup or the park or mothers group. We do swimming lessons and I give her a long play at the pool afterwards, and we do a dance class once a week though. Hubby doesn't drive yet (he's hoping to get his Ps soon) so when he's home and they want to do something I always have to go along.
Not toilet trained here either, I thought about it last summer but she wasn't showing strong signs of being ready and I figured with bub due it might cause a regression anyway so didn't pursue it. We'll see how she goes this summer.

heres one link to something I've made, I'm not sure if this will work. It wouldn't let me upload pics so kinda a test.
I need to take some photos of the blanket/shawl I made and another top I made.

@Green Cheese, I admire your energy. Despite your protests you're still managing to look after your daughter while that pregnant. I'm not surprised you feel tired! Sounds like there are a lot of successful pregnancies here. It's nice to hear some happiness - even the minor niggles warm my heart because they're symptoms of a pregnancy nearly at a happy conclusion I'm trying to think positively today, and not get frustrated that the Enter key is not giving me a paragraph break.

A blessing way is a ceremony to celebrate the baby and also the mother. I had it today and it was so special. My doula did it for me. We did a guided meditation, sisterhood string bracelet ceremony, lit a candle for the baby etc. Everyone brought a piece of fabric they had decorated to make me a bunting/prayer flag for the birth. They also brought a special bead, and I strung them all together to make a birthing necklace. Then we had a feast (everyone bought a plate of food and I set up teas and coffees etc). It was a really special day. At one point we went around the circle and everyone said how they met me etc and by the end we all had tears, it was so emotional and just beautiful!

@Colbie, that sounds so lovely! I've never heard of that type of ceremony before. What a beautiful way to celebrate you and your baby. Emotions must have been running high but no doubt you and bub felt cherished.

@Colbie that sounds so beautiful. I love the sound of the whole afternoon. What a special memory that has given you. I much prefer the sound of that than a baby shower.
My bestie asked me if I want to have a baby shower and I can't do it. Not after loosing DD2. I would feel awful if I did. I've done the big baby shower with DD1 and that's enough for me, I much prefer the sound of a blessing way.
@Bluebirdgirl that cardigan is adorable.
@Green Cheese my DD was 2 at the end of Feb so they are very close in age, I'm glad to hear you haven't pushed toilet training either. I just think it will be much easier when they are ready...

Thanks ladies it's a cotton yarn and the prettiest thing I've made. I keep the pattens basic so I don't make mistakes! I have made a couple of wool things but I don't know that it will be cold enough to get much wear out of them which is why I didn't buy any yarn specifically just used what I had here. I do need to take a pic of the shawl though. It's really basic but was such an epic knit with over 300 stitches on the needles by the end I was so sick of it I made it a little shorter than called for!
@Colbie your blessing way sounds awesome. I've known a few ladies online that have had them like yours.
