Happy and joy and relief were all the emotions I felt today as I walked into Rosemary's hospital room first thing this morning and peered into her crib and saw her "peering" right back at me. Not having seen her blue eyes since the day of her surgery, I was instantly talking and kissing and laughing with my little girl. She still has a ways to go, but with it now being 6 days post op, it was time to get back to some familiar normal with her. I think relief is such an amazing emotion, one that I look for often in our situation. There is always a search for hope, and relief that things aren't or may not be as bad as I think they are, sometimes they are worse, but I'll take all the relief I can get knowing and remembering that she is exactly as she has always meant to be and as my midwife said at her birth and even days later during visits and phonecalls, "Leslie, she is perfect." I hold on to her words especially during times as these.

We have been busy!
For us, summer has already started. School is out, new activities have begun, our schedules have all been shuffled a bit and we are already feeling the intense heat of summer, even in the last weeks of Spring. I am starting a series for the upcoming weeks on what summer means for our family, the series is entitled “Summer is::”. Please join along and share your summer with us!
Summer is :: New outdoor toys and bike accessories

Today, I thought I would share my works in progress.
First up, a set of booties for a friend who just had a baby boy.
Next, a very long time favored knitting pattern from Knitting with Peace and yarn from Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton that I finally got on the needles at the beginning of May. It will be a 2nd year birthday present for Rosemary.
and lastly, a quilt I’ve had in mind for a while now using some leftover Heather Ross' Lightning Bugs and other Mysteries collection. I think it will be the perfect way to use up the small bits and pieces that are leftover from past projects.
So there you have it. I’d love to see what you all are working on, please share!
