My birthday, my neice, and another finish!

Today is my birthday! I'm 29 years old now, yikes!

Ok so last Thursday I completed baby blanket number two for my sister Lynnette's son to be born in November. She is naming him Weylyn Owen Jones. So here is the blanket i completed:

Later that evening my younger sister Heather calls me and said they are worried if she goes full term with her 2nd pregnancy (she is 6 weeks away from full term) they are worried the baby's bowels will perforate as she has cystic fibrosis and that caused her 1st poop to get stuck and so her bowels were building up with well poop. So anyway they decided to induce her. I grabbed a few things for her and the baby and had DH drive me to Aurora, Colorado. Poor girl was in labor for like 2 1/2 days before they decided to use pitocin to speed up the process. Her husband and I were there at her beck and call the whole time.  FInally on August 7th she came into the world! So everyone meet my first neice!

Mina Alexis Martin
Born August 7, 2010
At 8:41 P.M.
5 lbs 10 oz
18 1/2 inches long

She had to have surgery to empty and remove some of her bowels as the enigma didn't work. The surgery went well and they have removed her from constant pain killers to just a Tylenol suppository. We can't hold her yet as she still has plenty of tubing on her but she is otherwise a healthy girl. 

I got home Sunday night and I haven't stitched or crocheted since cause I haven't been feeling well. I still don't and being on prescription meds isn't helping how I am feeling but they are working so with any luck i will be up and going next week.

Blanket is wonderful.

Congratulations to the new family whom just welcomed a very beautiful little angel girl into this world.

She is so precious... Sometimes it is those that go through so much during their first few hours... that show the most love for life and end up being our sunshine that make life worth living.

I definitely know that one as my son during his first week went through surgery, IV's into every possible spot and blood transfusions... upon leaving the hospital it was like nothing happened... he has such a love for life and loves making others smile.
