Another year is almost done. It just doesn’t seem possible, but time is going more quickly than ever. I’ve spent way more time working this year and not nearly enough time at home. Micah is about to turn 18, and I feel like I’ve missed most of those years. I’m newly jealous over Jeff’s being home with him for those 12 years. I feel like they have a bond that I’ll never have. All that aside, though, and Micah has grown into an amazing young man. I feel good that he’s had his own parents with him for his entire life, which is more than I could do for any of the others. I hope we’ve given him a good base upon which to build the rest of his life. Even if he is a little hesitant to start the rest of his life. I’m probably being selfish, but I don’t have any problem seeing him there, in the kitchen, gaming, every night when I come home. I know he won’t be there much longer, and that makes me treasure it all even more.
There’s big changes coming to our house this spring, though. A new baby – we think its a girl – from our daughter formerly living in California. She’s home with us for awhile. Baby Shower invites will be forthcoming! Just in case you want to know, she’s registered at Baby Depot, and will also be registered at Target in the near future. Her baby registry at Baby Depot is here. Here’s the first baby picture!
Her debut will be some time around April 1, 2013. Micah’s favorite day of the year! This is the 4D ultrasound. Amazing! But I’m hoping her head is a little less bumpy when she’s done baking…
Surprisingly, not much knitting for her, yet. I’m trying to finish the items already on the needles, and one of them is done. Jeff’s replacement sweater is finished and, although he hasn’t worn it yet, it’s very nice. No pictures, because I procrastinate with the best of them, but soon. Also on the needles is a Wingspan for me, in a lovely teal color, Monkey socks (also for me) in Lorna’s Laces in a wonderful harvest gold hand painted, and a pair of plane socks for someone as yet to be designated. Photos of all to come.
In honor of December, even though there’s no snow here at this time, I’m putting snow on the blog. Just for you. No coat necessary.
