a quick hello

  Hello there! Just thought I'd stop by and let you know that we're doing fine, lots of winter cuddles and trying to figure out this thing called 'life with a baby.' Still trying to get into a routine-- some days are better than others. Some days he's feeling good and napping well, others...not so much ;) But over all, Robbie is such a sweet and lovable little guy. Looks, he even lets his mama check her knitting progress on his little noggin. How cute is that???

   Some little treats we've been enjoying around the house include some homemade apple sauce, watching the "Christmas bulbs" grow at such a slow pace it could be spring before we actually see flowers, and loving all the kindness of friends and family who bring us food and come to visit-- or give us special keepsakes like the beautiful necklace that my mom had made for me from The Vintage Pearl, shown above. It has Audrey and Robbie's names and birthdays stamped in it, and a copper heart in the center-- plus a pretty pearl (have I told you that lately Im liking pearls a lot? Must be my old age settling in...)

  Like many places across the US, its bitter cold here. There was a slight dusting of snow this morning, but it melted in record time. I feel like when the weather is this cold, its just useless if there isnt snow. Who wants bitter and brown? That's no fun at all. And it was nearly 70 this weekend. Weather out here is crazy.

  Well, back into my nest I go! Hope all is well with you and yours, talk with you soon!~


  1. How good it was to read this update from you! I send along warm hugs to all the family!

  2. I'm so glad you're all doing well. What a lovely gift the necklace is, and Robbie's beautiful. Both your kiddos are.

  3. What a handsome little boy! We also have the same "problems" about napping. I hope it will improve eventually.

  4. Love that applesauce recipe! Perfect antidote to a brown cold prairie day. Robbie is adorable in the latest hat and I love the colors. Your necklace from your Mom is beautiful and such a keepsake to enjoy wearing! February rolls in on Saturday so you know what that means.... warm air from the Gulf will start to rise up more frequently through the prairie and put Ole Man Winter on the run!!

  5. I'm almost jealous for your freezing weather! We have had such a mild January with cherry blossom popping out here and there. I think we may be having an icy February but winter doesn't bring snow every year here in the Loire Valley. Meanwhile after weeks of sunny weather we have had a lot of rain and the Loire is bursting its banks.

    Life with a newborn certainly keeps you on your toes. What a good thing it is that we love them so, so much!

    Warmest wishes from France,


  6. Huge congratulations, he looks such a beautiful little guy. :-) x x x

  7. What a beautiful baby boy you have, Audrey! I'm so happy you're both doing well.

    If it's not bitter cold here in Wisconsin, there's a blizzard outside. I know how you feel with all this crazy weather. It's definitely one of those rough winters all around. Keep warm!
