Off again this morning to see Korana and this darling little one she just popped out last week. Hello Adalyn May; so good to meet you!
Adalyn was a sweet little doll as only a new sort of newborn can be and the older kids played very nicely upstairs so the mamas could have coffee and chat in peace. Korana bestowed her discarded knitting things upon me (yea!) and let me sift through a huge pile of vintage buttons (double yea!). I really think I could look through piles of vintage buttons all day. My friend and I both agreed we could feel our blood pressure dropping, so we are pretty darn sure it actually has medical benefits. I wonder if my insurance would cover some ebay button lots?
All in all, a lovely morning, although I have returned to a DISASTER of a house (this seems to be a recurring theme around here) and my stress levels are already back through the roof as I have also recently just figured out that I have less than two weeks until Ellie's birthday and our vacation! EEEEEK!!! (imagine this noise as both extremely excited and very, very wigged out)
But the baby fix was worth it, as there won't be anymore coming from me. Yeah, as dear as she is, I don't miss the sleepless nights, the guessing what's wrong, the diapers every five minutes. In fact, I am actually looking forward to a stage where I am DONE with diapers and nap schedules and cutting everyone's food for them. Don't worry, I'm not trying to rush things. I don't mind enjoying now, I'm just saying that it feels good to not be sad about leaving it ALL behind.
Off to roll in a pile of buttons before I have an anxiety attack from all the piles of stuff all over the place here. Kidding. But I sort of wish I wasn't.....
