    Baby Land

    My daughter's husband is on a very untimely, albeit, necessary business trip. She's two weeks and 3 days post partum cesarean. He left on Tuesday, and I have been here since.
    A newborn and a very ACTIVE 15 month old.

    JAYZEE. I'm too old for this stuff...

    We are a 24 hour operation. I am the chief cook and bottle washer. Toddler bather, laundry assistant, and diaper Genie and BURPING specialist.

    We have no clue as to the date, nor time, except for the sun rising and setting....

    I LOVE this time with my toddler, Natalie. We have a bath routine, now. She does the Shamu rollover in the tub. She did it before, but I named it the 'Shamu', HUGE smiles and newly found trust. PRICELESS.

    The kick? I brought my set-up. Cutting mat, Janome, and rulers and staked my claim.
    I'll make my next Irish Chain here. DD's friend needs a baby quilt....

    HA!
    SILLY me!
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

    Oh sweetie! You had such plans, but then reality hit! Enjoy the time with everyone - sewing can happen when you get home. I bet you are sleeping good, when you get the time!

        l feel for you!! When my oldest had her youngest, it was also by C-section. Unfortunately, at the same time, my husband was recovering from the second of two surgeries to remove a large tumor in his spine. We went down to Sherwood, Oregon to stay with them, in a large two story house. Neither could do stairs!!! Husband was downstairs and she was planted upstairs. The baby was not thriving and had to be fed every two hours. She was unable to nurse. Baby would not suck. Took two hours to feed him two ounces and it was time to start feeding him again. Then he got jaundice....then he got hives everywhere but his head and hands. That was the day we were at his doctor twice in the same day! I was also taking care of the ten year old after school, doing laundry, cooking, shopping and anything else. I lost 20 pounds in three weeks going up and down those steep stairs!!!

        It's all worth it in the end. It was before I had gotten back into quilting or I'd have taken my machine and things too.....don't know if I'd have sewn, but I'd have had them just in case!!!

        Enjoy those babies!

            Chica! (Gee it feels good to say that to you for a change, hehe)

            You are soooo funny! And you are a nurse, what were you thinking?!? Sewing while taking care of a mommy with a C-section, a new born and a 15 month old! lol Yousss is funny! I love your spirit Girl Friend.

            That's like me thinking I can make some pillowcases and self-binding blankets while Penny 21 months and Ollie 3 years old are here. Bruahahahahha!

            Now, reality check! Take care of the little family and yourself and sew once you get home. Enjoy those sweet moment and SURVIVE!

              We will edit the projectile object, being thrown to her head by the 15 month old....

                She is absolutely precious!

                Had the niece (1) and nephew (3) over for a bit tonight - they are so much fun! I love every stage - especially spoiling them and sending them home!

                      You lucky duck! How I wish I lived close enough to our children and now grandchildren to be such an important part of their lives... enjoy every minute, it will go by far too quickly

                        Wow, only 15 months apart - that is close! I had two years between mine and really felt it was too close at times, but the payoffs are so great. How lucky they are they have you to help out! I remember that time of almost permanent sleep deprivation and cold days (David is born in march, which is very much still winter here) being couped up for days on end.

                        Maybe something to do while sitting next to Natalie watching teletubbies in 3 mins increments would've suited better than actual patchwork.

                          She is absolutely adorable and you are soooo, sooo, lucky. Maybe a little worn out, but so blessed.

                              I wouldn't term it a 'blast'. It's exhausting, actually....
                              But as far as relationship building, especially with the 15 month old, priceless!
                              WE have a TUB routine, where she does the 'Shamu roll-over', a term shared just between us.
