Reuben is Here (& Home)

I haven’t been writing much for the last few months – between craft fairs, completing jewelry for orders, Christmas, preparing for the baby, and general family ‘stuff,’ there wasn't much time towards the end of 2012.

2013 began with Reuben’s birth on January 3rd (1:41am).  He aspirated meconium and spent his first few weeks in the NICU at the IWK Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, finally coming home at 3 weeks and 4 days old.

The family has been adjusting nicely to our new addition.  He is still learning his days from his nights, so some days have more time in them than others (you parents out there know what I mean by that).

I have some pieces finished that I haven’t gotten photographed yet.  And, I have some new tools and a sketchbook full of ideas to try.  But, for now, I have to get back to baby-land.

- and to buttress your resolve to make the world a better place. "
