I won one of Cyndi's fabulous give-a-ways from Blue Bird Swing. Along with the Snowman Wall Hanging from Pumpkin Berries Stitchery she included note cards, a note pad and post-it notes. All very much needed and a wonderful Cadbury chocolate bar. Love it all and thanks so much for the extras.
I also treated myself to some of Donna's art work from Morning Dove Cottage with my birthday money. Got this gorgeous peony tray and note cards. I've always admired her art work and now have a piece for myself. Love it, love it, love it.
Boy have things changed when you are having a baby. Mom and I learned so much we didn't need to know when Isabella joined our family. haha.
The hospitals now take baby portraits the day after the baby is born and showed up in Jennifer's room bright and early Sunday morning. Isabella did not appreciate being woke up and dressed in her finery. She cried and we consoled her, the photo lady took her and she cried so we consoled her, the photo lady took her and she cried some more. We quit! Told her to come back the next day and we would try again.
Monday morning we dressed her in her finery an hour before the photo lady was to show up just in case she was unhappy again. All went well and she did not cry once and pretty much ignored the photo lady the entire time. Yippee!

Life as we have known it has come and gone. Our lives for the moment now revolve around Isabella and what she needs and/or wants. I see many many more days of rocking. Mom takes the day shift and I take the evening shift while the proud daddy is at work. Doesn't get any better than this!
She brings riches and wealth. She lives in high places where the clouds meet the earth. She is only seen during the first snow of winter. She wears pale blue like the sky and has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
