Marvelous Monday Update 9/26/2011

Marvelous indeed! I became a Great Aunt over the weekend!! Six weeks early, what a tiny little bundle he is. Mom and Baby are doing well.

As you can see, he has his Daddy's first name and his maternal grandfather's (my brother) middle name. Since he's so tiny, no one is allowed to hold him yet. He's being fed through a feeding tube, but everything is developed and he breathes on his own.

In other good news... I finished my term paper! It's a huge relief to have it done-done-done. I also got 100% on my quiz. The "only" schoolwork I have this week is two chapters of reading, homework, and two postings. Two more weeks to go for this semester... Woo Hoo!!

Aurelia of Eglantine Stitchery is hosting her first ever Christmas-themed giveaway. Stop on over and check it out. While you're there, also take a look at her beautiful stitching!

I gave Celeste part of a cracker and look what she does:

She walks around the house with it hanging out of her mouth. I think eventually she ate it. If not, I'll find a cracker somewhere.

I finished Part 5 of the iStitch SAL. We're at the halfway point now.

I also found a bit of time here and there to put a few stitches into Blossom Splendor. So far I've done almost 90 confetti stitches.

Until next time,

Such a tiny little thing, hope he gets bigger and you and everyone else can hold him. Celeste looks like she enjoyed her cracker.

Hello Meari,

Congratulations on your becoming an Grand Auntie. Jeremy is adorable! Glad to know he and Mom are doing well.

Good job on your 100% term paper. Wow only 2 weeks left? I bet you will be relieved.

Celeste is to much. I love it. Walking around with a cracker in her mouth. So funny!

Have a wonderful week!

What a sweet little tiny baby. His mom must be going crazy to pick him up. I hope he gets to breast feed soon. School is over early for you. Was this your last semester or next to last semester? What are confetti stitches?


Nancy in IL said...

Jeremy looks precariously tiny, but I know he is mightier than he looks. Congrats, Auntie Meari!

So glad the term paper is done, done, done! And 100% on the quiz - doesn't get any better than that!

That Celeste is just a little furball, no?

The SAL is turning out so pretty. Wish I had gotten in on that one, but better luck next time, I guess. BS (HA!) is gorgeous as always!

Congrats also on completing your term paper, Celeste looks so cute with that cracker hanging out of her mouth. The SAL looks great, I really like the color you're using. I start Part 5 at work today and nearly finished it, but will definitely finish it tonight.
