My how they grow…

I knit this sweater (from a pattern that my SP11 sent me) (Hi Melissa!), it’s Mikey Liked It.  I thought I would take some pictures of things I have finished for him to wear…  I forgot to take pictures when he could actually wear them. So the first picture is this cute sweater, and matching hat.  I’m so sad about this hat.  I remember him sleeping in it when he first came home from the hospital.  I had a hard time keeping it out of his eyes.  Now, … [Read more...]

The best day was Yesterday…

My son kissed me for the first time yesterday.  I have no idea if he knew what he was doing, but it made my day.  Opened mouth, lots of drool, but what a moment.  I cried. … [Read more...]

SP 12 - Question of the Week 2

As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday? We went camping every summer, and I don’t have many memories of that…  But I do remember going to Girl Scout Camp the summer after I turned 12, I was really awkward at 12…  I was chubby and didn’t care much about hair/make-up and clothes.  Mom sent me to The Timbers to sailing camp.  I was the youngest girl in the group of 9 girls who were sailing.  We had 2 tents … [Read more...]

Thank you!

For your good thoughts about my mom.  Things are getting better, and I hope that she is healing.  I help change her bandages twice a day, and the redness seems to be getting better.  I’d take a picture, but, it’s pretty gross. … [Read more...]

What is your favorite summer-time drink? I’m really into Kool-aid right now…  Fruit Punch is my favorite.  … [Read more...]

Bad Day

Ok, so today sucked.  And it had nothing to do with Sean. Today, I decided to move the family room around so that we would have more floor space for Sean to play on. Mom was sitting in a chair watching…  I moved one of our glass topped tables, the glass slipped from the table and tore a very large piece of skin off of her left leg (at her shin), down to the muscle.  I panicked.  Mom remained calm.  I called a neighbour to help take care of Sean, and took mom to … [Read more...]

Oh yeah!

Hi secret pal!  I can’t wait to get to know you! … [Read more...]

Rolling over!

Now for the most important thing…  Sean. Sean rolled from his tummy to his back last night, with everyone in the family watching!  I couldn’t believe it.  He hasn’t been reaching for things, he hates being on his tummy (unless he is sleeping) and so, I thought he isn’t even close to rolling over.  But he did it!  I’m so proud.  He has been eating his bib and drooling quite a bit…  He is super cute.  I think tomorrow … [Read more...]

Rotating joint pain…

There has been a bunch going on, so I’m going to put things in separate entries. I finally went to the doctor about my rotating joint pain.  Not that I wanted too, but it got that bad.  I’m looking back and I haven’t mentioned having rotating joint pain…  Honestly, I’m trying to figure out when it started.  I know it was at least a week before May 17.  It moved from joint to joint, never going to the same one twice, ending with taking out … [Read more...]

Thank Dog!

All I can say is last week freaked me out.  I so missed my laptop.  I spent the early week trying to figure out if I was going to buy a new machine or get the old one fixed.  I looked at ads, I asked for friends advise…  Finally, I went out on Yelp, and they saved me.  Yes, I found a place that fixes laptops to the component level.  Can you believe it?  AND they were 6 miles from my house.  I drove over, dropped it off, and less than a week later, … [Read more...]
