Life Goes On
So it's been nine days since our little K was born. She has been a very good baby from all accounts, sleeps nicely and let's Mommy and Daddy sleep some too. She lost weight from her birth of 5 lbs a bit under 3 oz down to 4 lbs 13 oz but last check she was back to 5 lbs. She became a bit jaundiced but it is slowly going away and she won't have to have any more foot sticks to get blood!
She still feels like a little doll or stuffie when I hold her but we have been blessed with her getting a little bit bigger and stronger each day!
Mommy P mentioned that she would like a few more receiving blankets and I offered to make her a few double layered ones...flannel on one side and cotton on the other. I got fabric to make three, two smaller ones and then one larger one for later. It was fun to find girly colors and prints for a change but at least there is more and more cute prints for boys these days.
I finally finished the baby quilt last week right after she was born and it is quite large. I love the pretty colors and soft prints and K's Mommy liked it too! I might be able to display it in the July Steel Days quilt show depending on how much washing it gets LOL..that's OK I make quilts for use most of the time and I am glad she will be sleeping under it instead of having it hanging on a wall or folded away in a drawer.
It is a lovely spring here in Utah and about two weeks ahead of "normal". I grabbed my camera when Belle and I walked this morning and thought I would share a couple of pictures I took. I love the pretty cornflowers that are in bloom every where right now. I know they will be done in a week or so so this will be a way to remember. Belle looks funny in the picture as she turns around to cheese at the camera! LOL
It's perfect walking weather now but since it is spring I figure it's "just wait, and it will be different"
