Today will be all about having a restful day.
For Bex to settle down and just get over the birth of Archer.
Steve is home for the rest of the week, so they can spend some nice time getting to know their new son.
Stew is back at work today.
I'm staying home too. Not weighing in this week... I'm just not sure my eating has been that good this past week!
A bit of stress related eating went on.
I'll do better over the next week and feel better about weighing in then!
*smiles*. There will always be up's and down's on this weight loss journey.
Here's a few more photos:
ABOVE: First kiss from his Granddad. Special moments. I just love them.
ABOVE: finally, you get to see the finished cot bumper! Archer Cliff Murray (Archie). They sure know how to choose lovely names. Cliff was my Dad's name (Steve's Grandfather), and Murray was Bex's Grandfather's name.
ABOVE: Last night, all tucked up in his bed. He's so TINY!
I got to speak with my sister last night. She's doing OK... very sore after her operation as can be expected, but hopefully on the road to recovery.
All going well, she will get results and follow up treatment in a month or so.
NO ONE guessed Archer's birth date, but two got the weight right, so you will both get 2 mug rugs. Lynda and Debbie, email me your addresses! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Right, I'm off to get some housework done. It never ends...
I escaped for the morning... went down to the mall and got flowers, balloon, card etc for the new Mummy. Then I got chickens for tonight's dinner, as Bex fancied roast chicken.
Then I took some clothes to the hospice shop and found a little piece of treasure! And a cute little (new) cardigan and hat set for Archer.
And THEN I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and got two new winter sheets for my bed, and some PJ's for Dante and Keera.
Lacy, I need your address.
So, I kinda had fun! Shopping is the next best thing to KFC. lol *smiles*
ABOVE: Bedtime after lunch, and Dante wanted to be like his baby brother and be wrapped up. How bloody cute is that!
ABOVE: Yep, he wanted to get in Archer's car seat too. Hopefully he remembers he's a big boy now! He's decided he rather likes his baby brother now, thank goodness.
ABOVE: Did I mention the chocolates! I shan't be having any.
ABOVE: This is what caught my eye today at Hospice shop. It's kinda ugly, but it just caught my eye and well... I had to get it! I have NO IDEA what I shall do with it of course. Whoops.
Maybe a fern it in?
OK... it's been a long tiring day really. Everyone is tired after the past few days events.
My sister got awesome news today too!
The doctors say they got all of the infected lung out, so fingers crossed she won't need any more treatment!
I'm amazed. And relieved for her.
End of Day: early cos I'm hoping to get to bed early tonight!
