What have I been up to you ask??????

Hello !
Well for once I think I have a great reason for MIA.....we had our baby!!!
Yes, its true....almost 4 weeks early. Labour started last thursday thru the night (back) and then we headed to the hosp on Friday late morning after getting the girls taken care of, my stamping club cancelled for that evening etc....Walked the halls till the Dr could come in at 3:30pm and he broke my water. 4:02pm Jacob Russell entered the world!!!!! 7 lbs, 11oz! Friday, May 23rd.
Jacob is Chris's grandpa's name and Russell has been in my family line for this will be the 5th generation. (originally from Scotland, and my dad's name)
We were discharged 24hrs later and its been a whirlwind ever since! He's developed jaundice which is common in premmies so today we had to take him to the hosp for blood work. If it was over 300 then he had to be admitted but it was 296! Please pray that tonight the numbers will go down so when we take him back in the morning he won't have to be admitted. No offence to nurses out there but I really hate being in the hospital. So I'm trying to nurse my dopey, tired boy as much as possible in the meantime as that helps clear it up.
Anyway we are so excited to welcome him into our family and the girls are absolutley gaga over their new brother!
Off to get a cat nap,

My going ons

Hello! Sorry for MIA. Its been quite a busy 2 weeks.....I thought I'd share a few cards I rec'd for my birthday last thursday. Thank you to Sarah, Rosella, Ruth and Wanda for these beautiful cards.

Seems like my days are taken up with kid app'ts, driving them to activities and baby dr app'ts. I go 2x week to the hosp for a non stress test now, weekly OB app'ts and then this week I had an ultrasound in Surrey! Playing havoc with my social life LOL! All is going well though and we're just waiting to meet baby in the next few weeks!

I've had one club this past week and have 2 coming up this week, then I can share the projects we've made.

Hmmmm other than that nothing else is new. Finally have a HOT day here today - 28 degrees! Hoping to go the beach tomorrow with Chris and the girls!

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!!!
