Success! 1

Success!

After trying to figure out knitting and/or crocheting for several years, I have finally succeeded!  I’m so excited.  I can do it, I can really crochet stuff, not just make semi-formed thingies. So far I’ve made this little dolly, Sleeping Sarah, who still needs a face. Isn’t she cute?  Ada loves to chew on her hat tip. I also made Ada a hat.  I am debating whether to add ear flaps or kitty ears to it. The hook size I need to make the ear flaps...

Bangers a la BANG! 3

Bangers a la BANG!

Rosie had her first ever dentist visit this morning.  It was shockingly uneventful.  I don’t know what I was so nervous about. I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was three years old.  The dentist was excited that I was bringing in my kid, said it made him feel old.  He took a picture on his camera of Rosie and him together.  I’m waiting for him to email it to me.  He’s a nice guy. Rosie was thrilled to get to go...

Christmas Season!

We set up our Christmas tree yesterday.  Rosie was bouncing off the walls with excitement.  Ada was in awe.

Welcoming Baby Ada.

The first part to this, along with her birth video, is in the previous entry. For those who asked, Ada is pronounced like the letter A at the beginning. A-duh. Or Aid-ah, if you’d rather… Everything is going so smoothly this time, in comparison to the horrible time I had after Rosie’s birth. Baby Ada knows how to nurse so well! She latched on shortly after birth and didn’t stop nursing voluntarily for almost the entire first 24 hours. My milk...

Baby Ada’s Birth Day. 12

Baby Ada’s Birth Day.

I feel as if I am completely in awe. Did any of this actually happen? It’s all so unbelievable, the entire pregnancy I’ve felt a since of disbelief. After my miscarriage I was afraid to trust that I could have a real live baby. I didn’t want my heart broken again. Even after three healthy ultrasounds I still couldn’t wrap my mind around the image of a healthy baby. Once you realize that it can all change in an instant, it’s...
