Been quiet here on the blog. It is much harder to blog with babe in arms than without. Who wants to put the babe down in exchange for a keyboard and screen? I’m just sayin’.
Quiet on the blog, perhaps, but not quiet around the house. We’ve had visitors! Little Miss Posy has been meeting grandparents this weekend. My mom is still here, and ohmygoodnessgracious she is a humongous help to me. I don’t want her to leave, pretty much ever. My house is cleaner than it has been in months, and my big kids are getting lots of love and attention. That is a priceless gift, I think.

|Endless games of Uno and Jenga ensued this weekend. My big kids ate up all that time and attention. It was so good for them.|
Posy is a pretty laid-back baby (well, until about 8 or 9 pm- then she starts up with her fussy time, but it doesn’t last too long and I promise I’m not complaining). She sleeps better than my other babies did, and she eats as though every meal is her last. No joke, the girl was 9 lbs, 5 oz at her 2-week appointment. That’s up one entire pound when we were just aiming for her to regain her birthweight. She puts it all in her cheeks and her thighs. And those chins. Mmmm, those chins.
Yes, I do love me a sweet fat baby.
Posy got some time in with her godmother, too. There’ll be lots more of that in the coming years, I’m sure.
Oh yes, and time with her Daddy. Because a little girl can never get too much of her daddy.

By the way, Ann-Marie guessed Posy’s exact birthdate. She was the only reader brave enough to choose a day after my due date. Primrose said it wasn’t fair, since I pretty much forbid you all from doing so (okay, so I wasn’t the most patient pregnant lady ever). But bravery pays, apparently. I’m sending Ann-Marie a copy of A Little Way of Homeschooling this week- she chose from my big list of last year’s reads.
That’s all for now. My mom and I have a plan to get Posy’s baptismal gown and maybe some Easter clothes for the kids today. My sweet miracle baby, born Ash Wednesday, will be baptized on Easter. Perfect? I think so.
Have a lovely week, my friends.
