Things Have a Way of Coming Together

This past week was quite the whirlwind! Mouse was born at 1:21 a.m. on March 9, 2011, weighing in at 6 lbs and 3.5 oz., 18 inches in length. Her father and I fell in love with her instantly. The last several days have been spent getting to know her and adjusting to parenthood.




Very soon our house will be filled with grandparents and other visitors wanting to get to know Mouse as well. As a result, my attention to my blog will be minimal in the next few weeks. I do have one review ready for posting early next month and hope to at least check in on Sundays to let you know what I've been reading.

In lesser news, Anjin and I got word this past week that the offer on a house we like has been accepted. We are busy working on getting that taken care of as well as making sure the city is doing their part (as they are buying our current home). If all goes well, we will be moving in a month or two. Anjin already has Mouse's room picked out.

Please do stop in and say hello if you have a moment and let me know what you're reading!

    I'm reading Carol Shields' 'Unless', which is the first book of hers I've read. I can't get over that I haven't read anything by her until now -- I'm enjoying it so much.

  37. Oh Wendy--Mouse is absolutely beautiful and I love that smile in the last picture--so all knowing. And now I'm balling my eyes out at work thinking about babies and their innocence and oh my. ;)

  41. OMG!!! She is precious! With all you have going on, I am impressed you have time to read! Enjoy ever minute, she is going to grow so fast!

    To answer your question, I am reading Crimsons Room by Katherine McMahon. It is a good story but is not grabbing me. It is for my book group so I am going to stick with it and hope it gets better. I am listening to The One That I Want on audio. It is more enjoyable.

    Congrats!!

  43. Beautiful Mouse! Lucky Wendy and Anjin, and congratulations! She is so lovely. I'm so thrilled it went well, Wendy.

    As for the house situation, I'm so glad for you I could sing! but I won't, since I'm an awful singer. Enjoy the coming weeks and hope you can visit us on Sundays, but if a tiny sweet mouse claims your attention, we'll understand. :-)

  52. I hadn't realized until now that she was born on my niece's birthday! If she grows up to be like my niece, she'll ber an amazing young woman.

    That second photo is absolutely one of the sweetest baby pictures I've ever seen.

    I envy you and Anjin and wish you much joy and happiness mixed with just enough rain to make the sunshine sweet!
