My mam knit this cardigan for Niamh. It is so soft and warm.
I've been slaking a little, but I have a good excuse. No sleep! Niamh was 4 weeks old yesterday and is getting little chubby cheeks and is happy as long as she is fed and has a clean bum. I love just cuddling with her. She loves to fall asleep on my shoulder and I could just breathe in her baby scent all day long. Lucas says she has my temper already. She likes to be in the same room as us and cries if she is in a room alone. She actually smiled at me the other day and when she was eating, I heard a little chuckle. I remember yawning right about then, so I don't know if that is why, but it was sweet. I find that there is no time in the day to do everything and somedays I don't even get to check my email. The boys are doing a lot better adjusting. We are back to a routine but they are so wild and crazy. I guess it's just boys! Lucas has training all this week so he has been gone during the day. Although I enjoy having him here at night time, it's hard being stuck without a car. We only need one car right now because he works nights and I have the car while he sleeps during the day. I am hungry all the time, but I only seem to want to devour whatever chocolate is in sight. Not a good idea if you're trying to lose baby weight. We are excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas of course. Is it just me, or are the Christmas celebrations starting earlier each year. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas! The boys ask every day if we can put up the Christmas tree and I can't hold them off much longer. So, I think this weekend we will be trimming the tree. EXCITING!!!
This Friday, my sis Trudi and her fiance Tyler and watching Gavin & Tyrone while Lucas and I go out on our first date post-baby. Niamh of course will be joining us (I'm not ready to leave her with anyone yet.) We are planning to go see the much anticipated "Twilight" movie. Lucas is such a good hubby, he is willing to come along and watch it with me. I know it won't be as good as the book, but I'm still excited. I'm anxious to hear what you other Twilight fans all think.
