We go to the vet again Wednesday. He has started eating again so I hope to hear there was a weight gain this time. He seems better to me now. It took a month to get there.

That sounds like good news at this point.

I was about to say the same thing. I was really about to shut the computer off when I saw your first post.

Great to chat with you!

Good night Deborah...sweet dreams!

Weird. I thought I posted this week, and yet, there is nothing here from me.

Kinda been there, done that. I keep meaning to post, but for about the last week or so Kel has been video skyping me late at night so I can see Violet. How is a Nana supposed to ignore that? It's just not possible! We do some just message skyping during the day sometimes, but those video skypes are just so priceless that I can't give them up. You'll totally get what I mean in about 15 or 20 years when 1 of your kids is married & you have a grandbaby.

I'm SO happy to hear that R is back home with you! The snoring part, I understand...lol. I have to say that I think both of us snore less since we quit smoking, but I can't say that there is no snoring in this house...maybe just less.

In the next few days I promise to post an update on Violet. She's 8 wks old now...how the heck did that happen??? But she's technically 2 months old on Sunday. She has her 2 mo. check up on Monday. From what I've seen & heard, she's doing great. Up to 9 lbs now based on the displacement method of weighing her. From 6 lbs 9oz at birth, I think she's made perfect progress to be at 9 lbs now. Most nights for the past 2 or so weeks she gives her Mommy a really nice sleep of about 6-7 hours when she gets her last feeding around 11-12-ish. Sometimes 1am-ish. A feeding between 5am & 7-ish am & then usually pretty quickly back to sleep for a couple/few hours more. This is very good for a new Mom! Those of us who have been there know this! OK...so I've given alotta info now. I'm sure there will be some more to report after Violet's 2 month check up on Monday.

They are coming over here on Sunday. YAY!!! The last time I saw Violet in person & got to hold her was 2 wks ago when I got to babysit for her. The "kids'" had a date night & we were the lucky recipients of taking care of Violet. In short, a good time was had by all, although I know Kel was having some anxiety about being away from Violet for 4-ish hours. She told me she wouldn't have trusted anyone else with taking care of Vi, but I totally get how she felt with the anxiety.

One more thing...I hope we'll be able to have at least a mini postapalooza soon, or a phone call, but I know now that R is back home, you'll probably be pretty otherwise occupied with family stuff. I'm very happy that you're
all back together now!!!

{{{HUGS}}}

Violet is amazing to be sleeping so well.

School started this past Wednesday. R goes back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll post more later.

Hard to believe we have finished the first month of school. R's mom and step-dad were here for a week. I ended up sick their last night here. Glad I didn't put the quilt off. She wanted to have a quilt bonded and tied while she was here to give to her son that is getting married next month. The night I was sick, I got a "ribbon pillow" made between visits to the bathroom. I've never seen one before. It was heart shaped, made of netting. She bought eyelet and we threaded ribbon through the holes and I sewed it to be the border on the heart. I had to leave an opening so the bows/ribbons from the packages could be put in and kept. Sounds like something that was popular 30+ years ago.

Seriously???

More than 2 months? Really???

I have things to say here, but no one to talk to.

Right now I'll just wish all of my Lovely HYENas (whereever you are) a belated VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I hope all of you were able to spent some time on this blessed day with you families & friends.

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Mary! Ours was fairly quiet. R, B & S ran the 5K in the Turkey Trot. B, J & I handed out water/Gatorade to the runners at the half-way mark for the 3rd year. We came home did our own dinner with just us and chatted with family in a couple of states.

It happened Saturday. Working on a date...family making it hard
We are so excited though and I can't wait to plan. Got to put years of card making experience into practice to make some invitations that rock!
