Firstly , thank you so much for all the congratulations and best wishes on Mason's arrival . It meant a lot to me . I should be thanking everyone personally but the last week has been unexpectedly hectic and crazy . Added to the usual holiday craziness I've come down with a miserable cold that is sucking the energy right out of me . So please accept my heartfelt thanks here instead .
Little Mason is home and thriving , but not without giving us all a scare just to keep us on our toes . He'd no sooner arrived home then he had to be rushed back to the hospital after experiencing some difficulty breathing . It turned out to be nothing serious and he's back at home . He's an absolute sweetie , doing nothing but eat , sleep and poo . All the things a healthy baby does . A nurse from the CLSC (community health centre ) dropped by yesterday to do a followup to assess how mom and baby are doing . She's basically there to help if needed . She was pleased to see that Mason has regained and surpassed his birth weight already . So far so good . Now if I could just get rid of this cold so that I can hold him and breathe in that sweet baby smell .
I've been trying to keep up with all the holiday baking , wrapping , decorating , not to mention the few unfinished Christmas knits , but it's been a slog . After putting up the Christmas tree yesterday I came to the realization Christmas was going to happen even if certain things weren't done . So I might as well go with the flow , prioritize and let the rest go . Of course the two glasses of Caribou that I imbibed might have helped with the go with the flow feeling . It remains to be seen if I can keep it up ....
As for the knitting I'm still working on the baby blankets . A hat and scarf set are almost done but won't be sent out to Alberta in time for Christmas , but the winter's long and getting it in early January will be okay as well . There's also a pair of socks on the needles that look like they might be gifted after Christmas . So be it . How's that for the new go with the flow me ?!
