More projects

As soon as I found out that we were going to have a baby, I bought yarn & started a baby afghan; yellow, because that's what we seem to do when we are trying to go gender neutral.  Anyway, here's the result: 

So, when I asked Amanda to start going through my patterns to make something for the baby, she couldn't choose anything.  She was very sickly and because it was so early, we didn't know the baby's sex.  She kept mentioning the alien toy so this is the first thing she picked:

Projects for Baby

Here's a foreshadowing of our smiley baby.  He was smiling in his sleep on his first day. Everyone comments on what a happy boy he is.  Maybe he's smiling here at the blankie I made for him.  Probably not, but I'll pretend it is because of the blankie.....

Grandmothers taking their survey

Five tiny fingers, five tiny toes
Little itty bitty clothes.
A cute baby boy
To cuddle and squeeze,
To pamper and play with
And bounce on your knees...

New Daddy

Grant & Cullen; look at that happy Daddy.

Sweet Boy

Aunt Sarah

Here's my sweet Sarah, holding her new nephew.  The rest of us look like we only got 3 hours' sleep but I guess you don't when you're 26 years old.  Or maybe it's joy shining through. 

Precious Picture

This is the sweetest thing I've ever seen.  Thank You, God.

New Baby

This is my sweet Amanda & Grant about an hour before our little Cullen was born. It was very early & she was so  nervous.  My heart was in my throat until Grant came back to tell us that my baby and my baby's baby were both ok.  I wanted to go into the ladies room to cry but I was afraid I wouldn't stop.                            


In the last five hours I've watched two movies, written out two crochet patterns, and surfed the internet for chemo hat patterns.  The movies I've seen; I was hoping that I'd get sleepy.  That didn't work so I got the laptop out & wrote out patterns for afghans I just made f or my girls.  I'll post that later when I get some pictures made...and when I figure out how to do it!!! 

Say prayers for my friend "T" because she is undergoing chemotherapy and it's side effects.  She's very strong and is still working.  I hope she'll continue to do as well.

I'd do something more exciting but I'll make Randy pretty unhappy since it's 3:56 a.m. & he's sleeping.  If I watch videos of my little Cullen, his sweet voice might be enough to wake Randy.  If not that, my laughing aloud would surely do the trick.  We are absolutely ridiculous about him and we don't care who knows it.  I sure would like to see him in person again; I'll take him crying, pooping, or whatever.  He actually is very smiley and even when he's upset we can still get him to smile.  We had both of our girls' families here last week & we enjoyed every second. 

Okay, back to bed now.  Here's hoping for a few hours of sleep......
