...I'm still here...

I'm still here..
Was talking to my mom a few days ago
& she mentioned that I haven't posted lately..
Little Possum had his one month Dr's appointment on Tuesday..
It went really well..
He went from 5lbs 15oz to 7lbs 8oz.
They told us that we no long have to wake him up to feed
him every 3 hrs..
But, only when he wakes up & is hungry..
I feel like I'm venturing into uncharted territory...
I've called Mom many times since Tuesday.
Figured, she raised 5 girls she knows a thing or two about babies..
Brian stayed up with baby on his days off..
And now I know what he meant..
Little Possum was wide awake last night..
And I feel like night of the living dead..
The schedule we had was as much for us as it was for him..
Now what??
As a first time mom I'm really at a loss to what I should be doing..
Laundry is done (for the most part)
Dishes are done (for the most part..)
Fish is in the fridge to thaw for dinner tonight..
Dare I dream of slipping into the basement to sew when Brian gets home??
Or shall I be realistic & assume I'll be napping...

It's funny how within one moment your world changes..
How what you want doesn't matter as much..
& your whole world revolves around your child..
David will be 2 weeks old tomorrow..
I notice little changes in him..
like how his hair has lightened from dark to light brown..
How he is waking up more..
Tho, he still is nocturnal..
Like a possum.
On Wednesday, I'm going on a shop hop
with Mom & Cindy..
It will be my first full day away from David..
It should be interesting..
Happy Sewing to you~

Guess who made an early arrival???

I have sew much to tell you..
On May 27th my water broke unexpectedly &
I went into labor..
On May 28th at 6:39pm
David John was born.
He was 5lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long..
He was 6 days shy of being thought of as 'full term'
so he was a pre-term preemie
Both he and I are just fine.
Just trying to get settled in at home.
The pups spent the week at my sister's home..
What was weird was before my water broke neither of them
would leave me alone..
I had one on each side of me while I sat in the recliner...
My sister took the picture above on the evening we gave birth.
I doubt they understood what happened or
how their lives were about to change..
They are home now..
My family is home..
I'll hopefully get back to sewing
& blogging as soon as things settle down..
Thank you for following me..
Happy Stitches~
