A Merry Christmas after all

Thanks to everyone for the comments - your support and encouragement means a lot! I am trying to enjoy the baby time, even though I'm really looking forward to a schedule / routine and more interaction with the wee one. She's kinda giving us smiles and amazingly last night she slept from 10-ish until 6:30-ish!!! I was tossing and turning and nearly bolted out of bed when the alarm went off, thinking "She never got up during the night!"

While last friday was a wash, the rest of the weekend and days have been pretty good. On Saturday, Lorelai got to meet Aunt Betsy - they are off to a great start it seems.
Hi Aunt Betsy! Oh Aunt Betsy

Sunday we totally lost track of time somehow - Dan brought Jackson to the breeder, we went to his parents, wrapped gifts, cooked - the day just got away from us! I did finish the Police Tape scarf for my cousin Max:
CSI scarf
It says "Do Not Cross Crime Scene Do Not Cross" Max seemed to like it a lot and it got many comments at Christmas Eve. I also finished (but forgot to photograph) the pair of pedicure socks I made for one of my aunts. I think I need to make myself a pair of those.

On Christmas Eve we travel into Rhode Island and on Christmas Day to Long Island, then back to visit my folks. Crazy fun. I was given two gift certificates to the yarn shop (YAY!) and the Veronik Avery pattern book - decision time, what to make?? Tomorrow Betsy, Lorelai and I are going on a yarn outing - gotta check out my ravelry queue to see what I must knit next :)

To those who have not had the opportunity, She is an amazing baby, and mom is pretty great as well.

Can't wait to take Lorelai to visit yarn for the first time.

Awww, I'm sorry you've had a rough period. It'll get better, it always does. And she rocks for sleeping through the night, yay!

I can't believe you did RI one day, Long Island the next. We did just RI on Christmas and I was exhausted! I am an old lady compared to you though, LOL!

Listen, will you write to me at lkmcland@sbcglobal.net? I'd love to send you a card and I need your addy!

Oh boy, do I remember those nights. Hang in there, it does get better eventually.
