Baby Watch 2011

Well my daughters due date has come and gone. She was due on Monday the 24th. I jump every time the phone rings. She had an appointment with her midwife this morning and was told the baby is all lined up in great position. If there is no baby by this weekend she is going to have a non stress test to see if the baby's heart rate and movements are normal on Monday. We don't know what the baby is so I am super excited to see if it's a boy or a girl.

I haven't been working on to much lately. Went to a estate sale today and didn't get anything. Most of the stuff was priced to high. Then went to the Goodwill and nothing there either. Oh well. I was out running around in the snow and just came home and noticed all the birds at my bird feeders. So took a few pics and captured this Red-Bellied Woodpecker. He loves my homemade suet.

Homemade Suet

1 C. crunchy peanut butter
1 C. Lard
2 C. Oatmeal
2 C. Cornmeal
raisins, berries, birdseed

I keep those plastic forms that the store bought suet come in and pour the cooled done mixture in those. Pop into freezer. Works perfectly!

Well that's all for now folks!


  1. Oh boy... waiting waiting. That reminds me of my firstborn. I hope the birthing goes well.

  2. Can't imagine waiting for a grandchild!! Love the pic of the woodpecker, so clear and so close!!

  3. Hi Tammy, Oh I guess you do jump everytime the phone rings. I will probably be the same way. I am expecting my first grandbaby this summer. She is suppose to find out on Valentine Day what it is. Can't wait to see pictures of your new grandbaby. Vicky

  4. Oh how exciting...waiting for a new baby. Love the new baby intoxicating!

    The woodpecker is gorgeous.


  5. I'll cross my fingers for you that the baby comes this weekend! How exciting! I love it that no one knows if it's a boy or girl. It seems everyone finds out early and I think it's so much more fun not knowing!
    Estate sale? and I have probably crossed paths many times and never known it! "Bargain Bin" and "STOP" have the most reasonably priced sales. and I'm always at the Rock Valley Plaza Goodwill! SCARY! LOL!
    Take care, your neighbor! -Cindi

  6. I hope momma and baby does fine! I'll be praying that all is well.

    Lovely picture of the woodpecker!

  7. I hope all goes well and baby comes soon...
    Love the woodpecker.
