I went to visit him on his second day on this earth.
My Mom jumped up & down and gave me a hug...
because I wrapped his bonnet.
"Silly Grandma! I don't have a brother!
"Why. I'm your grandson. Why is he touching me. Get away!
What was funny was when SIL saw the bonnet on Corey, she said,
"OH! He looks like he's wearing a helmet!"
I immediately did my flip back PEZ head laugh!
All I could think of was 'helmet head!'
Good thing SIL's dad (the priest/pastor) wasn't there!
When I got home, Wooly looked at the photos and said, "I wonder if Corey is going to be the piper?! Does he have long fingers?"
Mr K was wide awake & a total flirt from the start.
Corey is very laid back. Never opened his eyes or cried or fussed. The first day, he opened one eye, looked around, then shut his eye.
I told my Mom that I feel very content & happy, now that I saw Corey. Those endorphins really kicked in. Now, if I can only maintain that feeling... you know, like after you had a good workout.
On Sunday, Wooly said, "I see you smiling over there!"
I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.
Monday morning I woke up to snow. I ran downstairs & turned on the television & found out that the bridge to work was shut down too. The bus was re-routed & I made it to work. I was wondering why everyone was so pissed off & unreasonable. Then, found out it was a full moon.
Today is Tuesday... still smiling! Even though it snowed some more last night. Even ripping back 6 rows on Windsor Waistcoat because I was 'making up' my own pattern - didn't phase me.
Amazing what a baby can do for your attitude.
Especially, when you're the Auntie!
Happy Valentine's day on Saturday to everyone!
I don't wait for anything from Wooly, I just buy my own treats... If he comes through with something... it's a bonus! :)
Knitting photos next week. :)
