An introduction I've been eager to make

Apparently in my case, the last-minute nesting instinct comes in the form of sewing rather than cleaning.  Saturday night I felt like I needed to get the binding sewn to the front of my sister's quilt {I had been putting it off in case this heat ever let up, but since that wasn't going to happen, I just did it}.  Not more than an hour after putting my machine away and folding the partially-bound quilt {I did get it sewn all around on top}, the contractions started.  I told my hubby I didn't think this was "it" though.

Well, I was wrong because just a few hours later {OK more like 12}, my beautiful Chloe was born!  She was almost three weeks early but is totally healthy and was just ready to meet us!


We are all home, resting, adjusting, redefining what our normal is, and generally enjoying being a family of four {plus my most wonderful Mom who is here for two weeks helping with the whole adjustment process}!

I won't be doing my sewing, but I'm still here and still working on the painfully-slow process of finishing my quilts!
