It's much more fun to share the pleasures, so here's one:
We've been expecting him for a while and he finally decided to join us a few days ago. I have been waiting to get my hands on him. There's no better feeling than holding a newborn who has been blanket-swaddled within an inch of his life.
I actually thought he might show up a couple of weeks ago when I had a cold. I was dosing myself with so much Vitamin C. Mr. Country Belle just laughed and said he knew what I was doing. I did, too. I didn't want to be sick and miss my chance to hold a newborn. (By the way, Vitamin C helps shorten the longevity of a cold).
I have also been cooking - chili for my sister's family, banana bread for my homeschool mom's group, and carrot souffle for another baby shower. I'll be sharing recipes this week.
I promise I'll stay in touch every week now. I just needed last week to get it all together!! I missed everyone and their comments and emails.
