It's a New Year! Lets share, shall we?

We're ringing in the new year with a new addition to our family! Matthew was born on December 1st, a week and 2 days after his estimated due date. The two older ones are quite taken with him, as is Daddy. I too have fallen in love with him. It felt like I waited forever to hold him in my arms and when the time came for them to set him in my arms I could do nothing but smile and cry. (The tears, though, were a mixture of being elated over having him in my arms and being ecstatic that I was no longer pregnant!:)

It's been a crazy couple of months, but I bet you could have guessed that already since the last time I posted was back in October. From about Thanksgiving till the present there's just been a lot going on with family visiting and the new baby arriving. We're getting used to the new addition, changes in schedules and my having to figure out how to make everything work and flow between nursing and diaper changes. We're getting into a groove, I'm happy to say. Things will change a bit more in the coming months as we send our Marine off on a 7 month tour. I have lots of plans for when my husband is away, with projects I'd like to start and finish on the house, and art projects I'd like to complete. I'm hoping to get started on some of those things soon. The last few months my only art or craft type projects have been cloth diapers. Our little one looks awfully cute in them don't you think? :)Here's to a great start to 2010!
