I have been very busy here in Calgary. I arrived last Monday - a very long drive as I stopped along the way to visit with someone I hadn't seen for 16 or so years. That put me behind by quite a bit. I left Vancouver at 7:30 AM and arrived in Calgary around 9:30. I haven't had much chance to post as babies are very busy - or at least the care of them.
Hunter is still as cute as can be!! He is much more alert and has grown quite a lot. We will find out tomorrow how much he weighs. He is eating really well -- still a bit of a combination of bottle and breast. He seems to have a "full" level and if he is shorted even 20 cc's he knows it and complains! He loves to be held and knows the difference between being cuddled and being put in the bassinet!! He is quite happy to sleep in the bassinet when it is night time and everyone else is in bed but not so thrilled about it during the day. As you can imagine I can be easily convinced to pick him up - a couple of good grunts is all it takes!
Here he is all wrapped up in the quilt from Anna (Quiltmom) - who doesn't have a blog. It is shaped like a four leaf clover with the brightest yellow minky on one side. It is like being wrapped in sunshine!! Great for walks in the stroller. You can certainly never have too many quilts. Thank you so much Anna -- I'd link to her blog but she doesn't have one! I met Anna through my blog last year and I have enjoyed emailing back and forth with her. Anna also sent me a book with basket blocks - the one I was looking for was in there - that was great!!
We did not get much walking in this week. The week goes by so fast and again it snowed!! and hailed!! and rained!! and I seemed to have caught a cold or I have having some major allergic reaction to the terrible weather. I have been very congested and tired most of the week. No real sore throat - just a head cold I think. So I haven't been as energetic as I wish I could have been. I think Jessica did enjoy the company though and we did get a few things done around the house. I am leaving first thing tomorrow morning.
I did get to Freckles quilt shop on Saturday. It is a nice little shop in NW Calgary. I bought a few patterns - not much fabric, a couple of fat quarters only. I was not feeling well enough to do a bunch of shopping. But I know where it is now - and it is easy to get to from Jessica's so I can visit the shop again.
Here is another picture of him with the bunny - as you can see he sure is growing. He doesn't have the "newborn" baby look about him anymore. Although he is still very tiny - I bet he weighs about 8 lbs - or less. He is really doing well. He is holding his head quite well - he still loves his bath and like to lay on the floor and look at his play gym thingy - it has fish and mirrors and things on it. And I am sure that was a smile he gave me today!
