Catching up

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 ?!

I would consider producing such a beautiful baby to be enough for one holiday season.

He sure is a cutie pie!

Have a very merry Christmas!

He's a handsome little guy! So glad that it wasn't anything serious with him.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

If you're not feeling well, then don't overdo. It's more important to feel well enough to enjoy the holidays, then to finish a bunch of hand knits.

Mason looks very sweet!
