Merry Christmas!

Yes, I am a bit late with the Merry Christmas greeting, but for a very good reason.  My third grandbaby was born Christmas Eve!  Lawson Clark was born at 4:57PM.  His mommy’s blood pressure got way too high and an emergency C-section had to be done.  They’re both doing well over all, although mommy is having trouble with double vision.  She’s been told the magnesium could be doing it, but the Dr. ordered a CT scan just to make sure it isn’t something more.  I stayed at the hospital the first night and fed *my* baby ice chips during the night, and helped her with whatever I could. I held and fed Lawson since mommy was too weak to try breastfeeding him just yet.  Was going to stay last night, but neither mommy or Gramma was getting enough sleep (she slept a couple hours the night before…I didn’t sleep at all), so I decided to come home, after I made her promise me she’d let the nurses do their job and take care of her and Lawson.  Since there is a snowstorm here today, I’ve had to stay put right here at home, and trust the daddy and other grandma to take care of mommy and the grandkids.

Here is a pic of my precious three grandchildren.  The hat Lawson is wearing was made by me shortly after I knew dd was pregnant.  Since I didn’t know the gender, and wouldn’t until after baby arrived, I made it in white.  :)

Waiting Patiently

Well, honestly, I’m not so sure about the “patient” part.  LOL  But we are waiting for grandbaby #3 to make an appearance.  In the meantime I have been going to dd’s house to help out with laundry, and whatever else she might need help with.  This is a picture of Monday night’s activity.  I had baked sugar cookies and took some icing along, looking for a couple decorators. My grandkids were more than happy to oblige.  Their daddy even joined in, and you can see grandbaby #3 in the pic, too. Shouldn’t be too many more days until the baby is more visible.  We’re all so very excited, and trying to be patient!  :D

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to All!

Since I haven’t posted much in a while, I thought I’d give a little update as to why.  I have been doing *lots* of crocheting.  Being that it has all been Christmas presents, or presents for the new baby soon to make an appearance, I haven’t shown anything here on my blog.  Don’t want the recipients, or the recipients’ parents, to see things yet.  :D  Also, I had some surgery earlier this week, so am working at getting myself back up to par.  Rest assured, I am enjoying looking at my favorite blogs…just not commenting a lot recently. And once the baby comes, and Christmas is past, I will have plenty of crochet goodies posts to share with you all.  :)
