Just dropping a note here to let you all know I'm still alive. I promise. :) |
For those that might have missed it, our baby girl was born three weeks ago. While we are not necessarily bending over backward to keep her real name private, we are going to be referring to her publicly/at conventions as "Eevee." And yes, it's based (somewhat loosely) on her actual name, and we already use this as a nickname for her. She is, after all, a mini-me, so she is just as foxy. ;)
The span of time between her birthday and today has just flown by. It is best described as "one long day" since survival has been from one nap to the next. We are finally getting a little bit of a schedule down for nighttime, which has been great, but daytime is another story. Right now we are going through a growth spurt, which has not been a lot of fun. Joe returned to work today, and I had hoped to do so as well in the near future, but growth spurts require a lot of eating and a lot of crying, so I haven't been able to. I'm aiming for late November/early December to resume work, if not necessarily full time then at least doing what I can during daylight down time. So my big projects will be resuming before the year's end. I really wish I could just carry my little girl in her wrap while I work, since she loves it and would cooperate, but all of the fur fibers flying around the room and fumes from glues would not be good for her respiratory system so I can't do that. Eventually I'll have some time to get back into the groove. :)
That's about it for now... Halloween here was quiet, we didn't pass out candy, we were just anti-social. We did go downtown that weekend and watched the costume contest/parade, there were some fantastic costumes! The people that congregate downtown for Halloween are easily as creative as cosplayers at a convention. :) After our day in town we walked some and visited with friends in the shops down there.
Will try to post some more updates in the future. :)
