Good Morning Xangaland!!!
I finished the blankets late last night and was just too tired to update but I have the pictures this morning.
I am going to be working with one of my cousins all day on music for a prayer meeting so I probably won’t be back until much later.
These first two pictures are of the bed set that Eric and Remy bought for their nursery so these are the colors I was matching.
Here is the first blanket. It’s big and puffy and the colors are a little lighter than the picture lets on. Sorry none of the blankets look square. They kept catching on the carpet and I did not have the patience to sit there and smooth out edges.
This is the second blanket. It’s a light summer blanket and I have to say I really like the vertical stripes I’ve never done that before.
The two together.
Up close so you can see the texture.
A little hat I made with some extra yarn… It cam out really cute.
All wrapped up. You can’t really tell because the green fabric sucked the light but the reds are the same.
So there they are the long awaited pictures of the blankets only three more to go for the summer.
Okay doctor news!
I went to my doctor yesterday and he said I’m doing better than any of his other patients. I have lost 71% of the weight they want me to lose and I have lost 83% of my BMI. I was at a 43 I am now at a 28. He says mine is better than his now!
Then we had a really weird conversation. He was asking me if I was going to want a tummy tuck cause I really don’t need one. I was telling him no it wouldn’t make sense for me to pay the 15k out of pocket when the whole reason I did this was so we could have kids so what sense does having a tummy tuck make? He then asked me how long we were going to wait to try and I told him a year. He hemmed and hawed and said yeah a year is good your leveled out by then. I thought he was acting like we should wait longer.
He says then again I have a woman that had the surgery two weeks before you and she got pregnant two weeks after surgery. She is almost seven months pregnant and is doing great and so is the baby. She has still lost 90 pounds but the doctors are monitoring both of them and everything is fine. So at six months your doing so well you could get pregnant now and it wouldn’t matter at all.
So hmmm interesting. We have decided we just won’t try not to and we’ll see what happens. So cross your fingers and pray and we shall see.
Okay I’m off to get ready and go pick up my cousin.
Song of the day? Godspeed by the Dixie Chicks. Because it’s the most beautiful lullaby. Which I just thought was appropriate.
