OT: Not AWOL...just BUSY!

Recommended Posts

Hey Buddies!

 

I'm writing to you on my new netbook from the comfort of an airplane seat, somewhere between Atlanta and Wichita, KS...on the way to meeting my new baby kind-of-grandson Devon!

 

I posted last week to say that our house was flooded due to a sewer line blockage. Thankfully it was clean water only, but we have been dealing the aftermath.

 

Then our dear Monica called to say that she hadn't been sleeping well and that she MIGHT be having contractions, even though she wasn't due for another 3 weeks.

 

I received a 5AM text saying that she was at the hospital Wednesday morning. Later that morning the doctors advised a C-section as the baby's heartbeat was slowing down too much between contractions...and now we have Devon.

 

Both baby and mom are fine! I'll post pictures later.

 

She is entitled to at least four days in the hospital without special authorization, so I'm telling her to stay put as long as possible. I want to get some cleaning and organizing done before she comes home Saturday. Since the baby is a bit early, things aren't yet completely set up and she still needs some supplies. I'm working with her DH on a shopping list as we plan to pick up what she needs when I arrive. So tonight we'll be cleaning, organizing, doing laundry, etc...

 

I'll post when I can!

 

Hugs to all...

Ha ha - that thing is like a Transformer - it reconfigures into a bazillion different incarnations. But it's very sturdy and lightweight, at least compared to stollers I remember. There are SO many baby thingies out there - I had NO idea.

Check THIS out: Pee-Pee Teepee ...although this is more of a shower gift (pun intended).

We also found $6.00 ADJUSTABLE SOCKS.

What an absolute cutie-pie!!

 

I, too, had NO IDEA there were all of those gadgets and gee-gaws and you name it for babies! I've been told that my job is to just provide the "custom clothing" (a la Martha Pullen).

 

Baby Alice's dedication (kind of like a baptism only without the water) is this Sunday, so hopefully I'll have lots of pics to show of her (in the custom clothing that I made for the occasion).

 

PS: I don't know how to make heirloom clothing but I guess I'm going to learn! :bcb_grin


Note: I follow the Winning Points program :salut

How exciting! I am so envious of talented folks like you! I have no such artistic talent...basically the best gift I can give is my time here, which is quickly coming to a close. I'm going to be very sad to leave tomorrow.

 

We should be back in the summer, for our usual trip to visit DD's birth family.
