If I knew that writing my “Nesting” blog post would induce labor, I’d have written it earlier. The day after my last post, our baby arrived!
It’s a BOY! (much to the surprise of our preschoolers, who were predicting they’d get a baby sister)
We brought him home on Christmas Day, which (after a short stay in the NICU) was the best gift we could ever ask for. We are thrilled to have Rhett with us now and loving how he just seems to fit right in like he’s always been here. Going from zero kids to one was a huge change. Graham’s arrival gave us the added element of multi-tasking. Rhett? I’m probably jinxing myself, but he’s the easiest to adjust to thus far!
And I think he looks extra cute on his quilt that I made him.
Both of these photos were taken by my friend Taylor Tholen, a KC area photographer/ high school teacher extraordinaire.
A bit of pattern business housekeeping… we’re just about back into the swing of things and are finding a good routine. Orders are going out on time, but e-mails might take a bit longer than usual to receive a reply. I can do a lot with a baby in one arm, but emailing is not one of them! Ha!
Someday soon I’ll get back to my sewing machine. For now, I’m enjoying lots of newborn snuggles.
