Bits and Pieces...

Just checkin' in to say hello and catch up a little.

We had a little scare with Lucas, as he lost weight from the time he left the hospital to his first check-up. So Karen started (sadly) supplementing with formula. The lazy little guy! He just loves to cuddle and sleep! They have to wake him up in the middle of the night to get all his feedings in! But he gained weight and all is well! He's such a sweet little guy! Here are some recent photos.

Nakey is good!

I love this one!

Karen's caption for this one: "Concerned baby is concerned because he is only a week old and already wearing old man pants!"

Big eyes!

He loves his bouncy chair!

Found this on Etsy and had to buy one for Lucas! Can't wait to see him in it!
Make it so!

Gary had his first chemo session last week. 3 days worth! It went well. No side effects yet. Three more weeks till the next session.

A few yarny creations -
This is a baby size afghan made from 9" squares received in a swap on Ravelry. I love it and I think Lucas will too. I did another one that is a big bigger - 12" squares...big enough for a floor blanket for him to play on. But Karen accidentally took it home before I could photograph it. It's all different bright colors and textures.

A pumpkin hat. I hope it fits! If not, though, it was easy enough to make, so I can donate this one and whip up another one for him.

And while you're here...go here...and vote for Alphie. You'll be voting to win money for A Place to Bark, which you know is one of my favorite places to donate. If Bernie wins, she'll be able to hire someone to help her with all the awesome work she does! It just takes a minute. And he is a cutie!

Well....till next time...

Glad the chemo seems to have not caused any side effects yet, fingers and toes crossed!

I plan to make some pumpkin hats too! On my "to do" list.

Oh, another sci-fi fan! We love Dr. Who and Star Trek! Right now we're watching Torchwood DVD's! I think I'm gonna have to dig out my son's photo of his Enterprise outfit I made him when we were in a Star Trek club and post it on my blog! Thanks for the idea!
