Springtime and Allergies

It was a fairly pleasant day today. The weather was beautiful.....close to 80 degrees and sunshine....well that is until Mike mowed the lawn. I knew he was going to mow but it didn't register in my brain till I got the first whiff of freshly cut grass and I went into a sneezing fit. Allergies really bite! I ran immediately and grabbed some medicine only to have Mike come in the house a few minutes later and asked me to help him with dumping the clippings into a brown bag. I really tried not to breathe but no such luck by the end of the afternoon I was sneezing my head off and had itchy eyes. Oh the joys of Springtime.

That didn't stop me from working on VCE. :) I did have a visit from the frogs so I ripped a good part out only to discover that in fact I didn't make a mistake. Grrr....I ripped out stitches for nothing! I blame it on the Benadryl!


Yesterday Megan had a check up and I am very pleased to announce that she is whopping 17 pounds 4 ounces (in the 60th% for her age) and 25 inches long (in the 25th% for her age). You can not tell that she was preemie at all! She is lagging in some areas like sitting up by herself, rolling from back to tummy, etc but since she was born almost 2 months early she is actually right on schedule for her age. Besides once they start rolling that means crawling will be soon and I am not ready for her to start that!

Have a great night and Happy Stitching!

Crawling babies are a force all their own!! VCE looks incredible! And I hope your allergies clear up soon.

I hear you with the allergies! I could never do the clippings from the lawn, that would just be too much. I take medicine every day and I still have issues.
