sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


My irises are coming up. And my azaleas are leafing out. Let me re-check that calendar! Yep, still January.

The mittens for DS#1 are finished, and in the dryer. I’ll post a pic later today. I am still working on the Baby Surprise Jacket. I will probably make a hat and mittens to go with it, as well as adding the scarf. That will make a cute set for either White Christmas or the Santa Train. I have very carefully chosen the needles that I need to finish the baby’s blanket for this project. See how I trick myself?

Speaking of baby, the bassinet is set up, and the bedding for it is in the dryer. I think that is the last of the baby things.

I am considerably worried, however, about DD#4. She is consistently waking in the night, screaming for me. I am left wondering what in the world she is gonna do when the baby comes. When I say she is screaming for me, I mean she wants full body contact. I have never been so close to delivery before when the old baby was still so much *the* baby. I’ve had them closer in age, of course, but never closer mentally/emotionally. It will be a very interesting transition, for sure. I guess my most immediate dilemma is figuring out how to get 4 people in my bed while making sure the new one is safe. But perhaps when I have a lap again, and can cuddle her more during the day, she will be easier to deal with at night. One can only hope.
