Well, my baby girl is here, and she is just perfect, I couldn't be more in love with her, she is such a joy and blessing to our little family!
She was born 22nd September, the first day of the autumn equinox at 14.59, weighing 9lb 13oz, at home, I had a birthing pool, although I actually gave birth on dry land because I had to get out at the last minute because her heart rate had dropped so low.
Obviously since her arrival everything is a lot harder to do, just about keeping on top of the day to day household tasks that need doing, but I don't mind because I want to enjoy her babyhood rather then if my house is sparkling, lol She loves being help and cuddled lots and I love holding her and cuddling her, as she gets older and settles more there will be more time to get back into the house routine. See this why in generations gone by they used to have the parents living with them, to help with the daily household chores, etc, how it has changed. lol
I have found a renewed enthusiasm for sewing, so I purchased some PDF patterns, only I can't print them because my printer isn't compatible with Windows Vista on my laptop and my old PC has died, so I am stuck, I feel annoyed at having to buy another one because I have a perfectly working printer already!! Madness!!
I will try and update with more regular ramblings each week and adding current photos.
