Little Things

I have made one little letter in the past three days.  That was the 'K' and it was kind of difficult so it took me a while.  I have also started to join them together, but I already had that done last week. These blocks are the ones I did in the second colour combination.  Still have to do the first combo. So maybe in another three days I will post those.  LOL

William is doing well.  He is eating well and growing.  He gained 105 grams in two days.  He is also sleeping well, but not at night.  Why is that?  I guess he just wants to be held in the dark.  I can't get over how cute he is.  Just like an angel.

Thankful for William

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!  Today is Turkey Day for us!  You guys south of the border will have to wait until next month.

Do I have to tell you what I am thankful for?  I think you probably guessed it!

I won't bore you with more William photos!   But he is so photogenic I can't help myself.  Mom and baby arrived at my house about an hour ago.  They will be spending a few days here until my DD is feeling better and can do things, like stair climbing, lifting, cooking and laundry for herself.  I'm very excited!  I am going to enjoy this time!

 My daily photos have sort of fallen by the wayside.  I have just been too busy.  Here is yesterday's photo - an outdoor, rose picture.  Fall is here and there will not be many more garden shots.

Bonding Time

Sorry, I am not keeping up with this 'photo a day' thing very well.  There is just too much to do.  I slept 5 hours on Friday night.  It wasn't enough, but I just couldn't sleep any longer.

Went to visit DD and grandson.  Both are doing very well.  Here is a photo of the two of them after William had his first 'meal'.  He was very content.  Such a good baby!  He only cries when his diaper gets changed.

After our hospital visit, DH and I went grocery shopping, then home to eat left-overs for dinner. I barely got through my dinner, when sleep over came me.  I guess I must have gone to bed, but I don't remember anything until I woke up there this morning at around 2:00am.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone, for all of your wonderful comments.  I loved reading all of them.  It's still very quiet around here right now, so I think I will go back to bed for a few more hours.  Gotta get my beauty sleep, don't cha know!  I love being a grandma, but I don't want to look like one!

Welcome William

It's been a long week, but I now have a new grandson.  He is such a sweet baby.  After 50 hours of labour the doctor determined that the baby was not cooperating.  He seemed to be holding onto my DD's rib cage and refused to budge.   So they performed a Caesarean Section.  The result was this cutie they are calling William.  Mother and baby are doing fine.  I, on the other hand, am a tired, blubbering mess.

A Ghost for Halloween!

I spotted the cutest little ghoul on Dunham Girl's blog this morning.  She had a link to a sew along for it.  You can find it here.  I decided I had to make one, even though I have a million other things to finish up.

A lot of things came up this afternoon, so I didn't get it done.  But hopefully I will be able to finish it tomorrow.  Cute, isn't she?

Fall Crocus

My fall crocus is almost finished blooming.  This plant is so pretty.  Fall crocuses have to be planted in the fall.  Then they send up some very large green leaves in the spring.  The leaves die back and the plant goes dormant by the time July rolls around.  In the fall it sends up pretty pink, white or purple flowers when you least expect them.  I planted this one a few years ago.  It was a very large bulb.  I thought I had saved the package it came in so that I would be able to identify it.  But the package is gone and I have no idea which variety this one is.
