While 'The Cat's' Away

This is what's been growing in my daughter's belly-garden! She looks so good now that she's over the flu and off work, on bedrest and drinking LOTS of fluids for Baby Dante.
She is at 34 weeks now, so he can be 'taken' because there are serious complications. Kimber insists that she feels well (and she does!) enough to drive. Isn't she darling?????
I knitted socks for much of the time I wasn't doing laundry or cleaning and cooking or playing with Isabella. One 'free' afternoon I joined my sister's quilt club for a few hours. The ladies were fun to watch as they made lovely quilts like the one displayed behind me. The shop was only 3 minutes from Kimber's home, so I felt comfortable being gone. It was nice to get our for a small spell and give Kimber some space too.

Also, I had the pleasure of watching Isabella's gymnastics class. She is now a 'Hot Shot' with five other little girls. This is the "Ta-Da" pose they are trained to do after each trick.
They've been doing handstands. And she is good!

We fostered out little Piper for some hectic days we thought we'd be staying at the hospital, but finally brought her home. Isabella really missed her puppy, kissing her, squeezing her, and sleeping with her when she finally arrived. I'm not sure if Piper was as glad to see Isabella as she was to see Piper.

I thank all of you who prayed for me during this stressful time. Round One is over. I've been home for a day, and I'll leave to go back tomorrow because there will be a break in the weather.

Wow! You've been busy. You're daughter looks so adorable. Also, love the beautiful quilt in the background of you knitting. Lovely colors! I'm praying all will go with the final phase of your daughter's pregnancy. Safe travels!

How nice to see a post from you!

Yes, Kimber IS darling, and so are YOU, my dear....sitting there knitting such a lovely colored sock, that matches the quilt behind you!

...Praying for the Lord's safety and blessing, for the upcoming birth.

I love that picture of you knitting! I'm glad you were able to do something fun while you are away! You are such a good mama, Catherine!
