Let's see... where to start?
So it's been a BUSY 4-5 months. I started back at work in a new role; Dear Husband started a new role with a new company; Baby Mac started in daycare. It would seem that Little Miss M was the only one cruisin'.
Add to this the effort of keeping house and home.... it's been exhausting.
Unfortunately, this has meant that all crafting projects had to be put on hold. Save for one - this project was determined to meander along, demanding sometimes a lot and sometimes a little of me every day.
Yep - another little one on the way. *sigh* It seems like only yesteryear that Baby Mac blessed us with her arrival. Actually it was only yesteryear!!
Uh-huh - after 6 home pregnancy tests over the space of 2 months when Baby Mac was only 8 months old, we finally accepted that we were pregnant again. After years of trying for the first one and then the second one, this little third one decided to buck all odds. I have a feeling that that will be the story of this bubba's life!
So... the pic above is our family unit, with the third one baking nicely along at 36 weeks. Not long now.
The girls are growing up quickly (too quickly!) and are becoming friends as well as sisters.
I have finished working for now - as in paid employment :) - and that was demanding, fun and fulfilling while it lasted. It was actually hard to leave this time round... hmmm, it usually is hard for me to leave work... but now that I've spent a few days at home by myself, I'm glad that I no longer have conflicting priorities and can concentrate on my family and myself for now.
There was one dear friend at work who was so supportive and encouraging while I got to grips with my new (albeit short-lived) role that I wanted to make something special for her as an expression of my thanks.
Thanks JR, for the laughs, the big ideas, the little gestures of caring, and for just always being there. It's been a while since I had plugged in the sewing machine, so excuse the crazy wonky sewing! But, in the wee hours of the morning, I made it for you... with love. Thanks again, JR!!!!
So, we've got a lot to catch up on.... But for now - take care!
