I've been a little preoccupied....

A lot of people who read here already know this but some of you don't....

I had my baby last month; she was born 6.5 weeks early. Her name is Lauren and she was 4 lbs. 8 oz. She stayed in the NICU for 12 days and has been home with us for a week and a half. Click over there to the right on my flickr for a couple of pics. I was in the hospital for a week before she was born and came home a week before she did. I'm so glad that we are both home and heading towards getting settled in to our new life with her on the outside.

I have finished one sewing project since I've been home; a blanket and burp cloth for her out of the cutest pirate flannel I got at JA like a year ago, way before I was even pregnant. I saw the fabric and had to get it just in case I had another boy baby. Well I had to use it even though she's a girl. I'll put up a picture soon. Other than that, I'm thinking about what I should do for a blessing dress. We don't know when that will be, I really don't want to take her out into big crowds much any time soon.

She is still too small for the clothes I've made for her but is growing well. She is up to 5 lbs 6 oz as of yesterday.
