Time is flying

May 29, 2009

So, I’ve been busting my behind to get stuff ready for the upcoming craft show, and just remembered I will also be vending at a local baby fair. So, hopefully I will be ready for this baby fair. (Actually, it would be lovely if I weren’t ready for it because that would mean I sold out of my stuff at the craft show! Good problems to have.)

Anyway, this is my first effort to get the info out about the baby fair. It will be awesome! If you don’t believe me, check out the events and vendors in the day’s agenda.

If you are a parent, you should go!

Rainy Day

April 13, 2009

Have you ever had one of those days when you are at work, it’s raining, and all you want to do is go home and crawl under the covers? Well, guess where I am right now? … In my bed under the covers! We are having a lazy day at home.

Archer is officially 1 month old as of yesterday. Yay! He and I are doing well, and finally adjusting. I’ve had some ups and downs getting used to being a mother of 2. Things are slowly becoming normal and routine for all of us now, though.

Breastfeeding was an issue to begin with, of course. I told myself not to get frustrated if there happens to be a difficulty with breastfeeding before Archer arrived. Inevitably, we did have a tiny issue, and I got a bit frustrated. But, now we have both learned how to “master” this nursing thing, and I couldn’t be happier that it’s becoming so easy. And, like all the breastfeeding advocates say, it really is rewarding and brings a special bond to you and your baby.

Jackson has had a hard time as well. He’s not getting the attention he deserves, so we have decided that we will make it our mission to be more conscious of the attention we give him. Negative attention is one thing he’s been getting a lot of–we need to change that. Otherwise, Jackson is being a wonderful son and big brother. He loves his little brother, and he is the best helper his mama could ask for.

John, of course, has had no trouble at all adjusting. He’s been there to encourage me when I’m feeling down. He’s was there for me when I called him to come home on his first week back to work. He’s there for Jackson when I’ve got Archer to feed. He is wonderful.

My new family is wonderful!
