One month to go!

Well, with a due date of March 11, there isn't much time left before our Wee One arrives! The nursery is mostly done - I'm still waiting for my mom's seamstress friend to finish the curtains - and if someone were to arrive unexpectedly, we'd at least have a bed and clothes for her. Of course, since we just moved in late December, I still feel like a lot of our things are still in boxes....and they may stay that way for months to come! Also, I got a lovely surprise package from Kathy last week - she made several adorable bibs and burp cloths, plus sent a cute little lovey blanket. Thank you so much, Kathy -- you are too sweet!!

Believe it or not, I *have* been stitching. Some evenings it is the only thing that keeps me from obsessing over the twitchy-crawly feelings in my legs... So last night I finished a small project from JBW Designs, called "To The Sea." It is stitched on 28-ct. "Drifting Sands" lugana from Kiwi Illusions, using most (but not all) of the hand-dyed flosses. And I did break down and purchase the Mill Hill glass treasure lighthouse, on the right-hand side. Yowza, that little doo-dad was expensive! I'm debating whether to have this framed (some day) or to finish it as a pillow/something else small that I can do myself.

For the tingly legs, try watching your sodium intake at dinner time and drink a lot more water in the evening. I'm due with baby #3 on 3/14 and have been fighting restless leg syndrome for weeks now and this little regimen seems to be helping me in the evening. My OB also said to try eating 1/2 a banana before bed, but that didn't really help me. I know it's very irritating. Good luck!
