See the light

Piers has finally slept through the night for the last two nights in a row. I don't want to jinx it, but I feel like I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...finally. Up until this week, his usual pattern was to sleep only about 3-4 hours at a time. After 10 months of this, you can imagine how it would just suck all the life out of you! I'm hoping this will last and I can start to feel normal again!

Along those lines (feeling normal) I'd like to get back to blogging again. I came up to start a post last night and realized that I had 35 unread comments going back to last April! I must have changed the setting at some point to moderate comments before they posted and not remembered/realized! So that was fun to read through all those. Thanks to all of you for your nice comments over the past months!

Also getting the camera out again to try and take more photos. I realized that I don't have any pictures of Piers since he was 4 months old! Well, we did have some until disaster struck. Peter backed up the laptop onto an external hard drive. After that the laptop died and we got a brand new one under our warranty (sweet! a warranty finally paid off!). While I was in the process of moving the data (photos included) from the external drive back to the laptop, Piers decided to pull the drive by the cord off of the table! Yup, you guessed it, goodbye all of our files from like the last 7 years! Some of the photos are backed up on CDs or the internet, but not the most current ones. So all photos from the last 6 months are now stuck inside this little box. Peter is going to attempt to recover them, but we aren't crossing our fingers. :(

Anyway, long story to say that I have new photos of the kids posted for anyone interested. Here is my favorite of Piers

And one of Helen looking like a big girl

Whole family has been sick pretty much all month long. Saturday was sunny outside and we are all finally starting to feel better. It seems that spring is on the way and we are coming out of hibernation.

I knitted a baby sweater for my friend Lesley who just had a little girl named Bianca. Of course I neglected to take a photo before I gave it to her. Hopefully she'll take one for me that I can post. Other knitting has kind of stalled. I'm back to Piers' striped hoody sweater. Just doing the finishing on it. I'm down to one side of the button band and sewing on the hood, then I'll be done. Then it's time to return to my second elfine sock. Man, how long has that been?!! Also need to work on my MIL's shawl that I promised her xmas '05! Then I think it's time for a spring project for me...we'll see.
