TA-DA! He's here!
The day before was Russell's birthday and I'd been teasing Casi for months that she was gonna have the baby early, on or near his birthday. She'd had a doc appt that day and messaged me that she fell out of the car in the parking lot and hit her knee really bad but they had her under observation for a few hours. I told her that I was surprised her water didn't break and that I'd be willing to bet that this fall would get things moving. Sure enough, her water broke about 8 hours later.
I'd told her to make sure they called us and I didn't care what time it was. So I'm sleeping and hear my phone ring. It's 2:30AM. It never occurred to me it was Casi. So half asleep I answered and didn't understand a word the person said so I go, 'you've got the wrong number'. I hung up and saw I had a text so I checked it and it was from Casi, 'Joanne my water broke'. I immediately called her back and boy did we have a good laugh! Her labor was pretty easy and he was born at 1:15 in the afternoon.
I finished the birthstone key I made for them too.
I finished ours too, which contains all the stones of all the kids and their partners.
Mark had a few problems a few hours after he was born. They think he aspirated amniotic fluid on the way out so he was on a CPAP, oxygen, a feeding tube and IV antibiotics. Fortunately the problems started clearing up quickly and he's now eating like a champ. He was able to go home a couple of days ago.
Been dying to egg Val's house for over a year. I wanted to do this last Easter but she'd had surgery and couldn't keep bending over to gather them. Russell & I started buying dollar store trinkets a few months ago. We got up at 6AM on Easter Sunday and headed to her house. We were stealthy...plus she was still sleeping.
We were home by 7 and I waited for her to finally wake up and discover what we did. I wanted to keep it a secret but it was getting late and I knew she had to leave for work so I ended up nudging her to go look. This was her post.
We also had Shadow overnight that weekend. She's so cute. She grabbed one of Sagan's toys to bring to bed. First time she's ever done that here.
Silly boy was a bit jealous and VERY clingy when she was here. I took this before we left to bring Shadow home. Not sure why he was standing on the couch looking at my computer.
My friend Cathy surprised me with this bracelet made for me by her 12 year old grandson! A few years ago I made him a Minion from a kinder surprise egg pod and he wanted to make something for me. I just love it and am so touched he thought of me and did something in colours he knew I'd love.
She also sent me this Snitch kit she found! Can't wait to put it together!!!
Had Shadow again. To say we spoil her as much as Sagan is an understatement. She woke from a nap and took her lunch en suite.
"Thanks Food Lady!" She comes to me when she wants food. It's hilarious.
When she was done, she nudged the dish off her bed onto the floor and went back to sleep.
Winter's still hanging on for dear life with mix rain and snow in the forecast quite a bit. Hoping for spring temps soon so we can get out again!
