Thank you all so much for your sweet congratulatory comments. And thank you for your prayers. My recovery is going as well as expected for a c-section. Joseph is doing beautifully, too. And the children are adjusting (with the anticipated ups and downs that go with that) …
I originally had written the below post before Joseph was born. But I never got a chance to post it, due to his early arrival. So, I have revised it and am posting it today =)
Before Joseph arrived, I was nesting quite a bit. You probably aren’t surprised by that.
I didn’t have the energy or ability to tackle big organizational projects or anything like that. So, I tried to accomplish as much as possible from a sitting position, which was challenging. I had to wait upon my husband to tackle any rearranging of furniture I wanted. (And yes, I wanted a bit of that =)
One thing that I was able “to nest” were some of my knitting projects. Finishing up a few projects in the course of a day or two felt like a type of nesting to me anyway.
The knitting bag is now lighter, and the basket next to my chair is emptier. Another sign (to me) that I was getting ready/preparing/nesting for something major to happen!
My finished projects:
You-Make-My Hat …
… on a very happy boy.
A very happy and blessed fourth week of Advent to you, friends!
