Thank you all to the ends of the earth for you kind messages and congratulations on our new bundle! You are all so sweet and wonderful! We are truly blessed!!!
I've got a few minutes while Cuddle Bug watches Word World on PBS and Lady Bug sleeps in her swing next to me. And that means I can update around here!
We are continuing our adjustment. DH returned to work on Tuesday so I'm getting used to being a stay-at-home-mom of 2. Lady Bug had her first well-baby visit with the pediatrician on Tuesday. It was my first outing with the two kiddos all by myself. Things were going fine until we entered the exam room. I had been telling Cuddle Bug for the past week that we were taking his sister to the doctor, but he didn't have to worry because he wasn't going to get checked out. He was just there to help his baby sister. It didn't matter. As soon as he walked into the exam room he had his usual meltdown. I was trying to answer questions for the nurse, fill out new patient paperwork, undress Lady Bug, and calm my poor terrified son who at one point opened the door and went screaming down the hall! By the end of it all, I was frazzled to say the least. But we survived, and I figure I'm stronger because of it.
I stitched up a little design on Sunday that my sister had asked me to make for her last April. I never got around to it even though it's a small piece. I did the main design Sunday. Then when I was up nursing Lady Bug early Monday morning I decided it needed more blue, so I added the blue border. I like the way it turned out, although if I could do it again I would have stitched the cat with 2 strands instead of 1 for better fill. I changed "July" to "USA" and I'm very pleased with it. This will be finished as a little ornament. I'd like to get around to the finishing in the next few days, but things are busy around here lately so I can't be certain when it will actually get accomplished.
You'll have to excuse the poor lighting in the photo. It's terribly overcast today.
