Phewy on pictures

Since Allen got his new camera, I have been having some serious issues with getting pictures to upload to the blog. For some reason the camera does not want to upload pics onto my lap top and our network will not let me access them off Allen’s computer. I now have to go through a long process to get them here:)

It has been a busy week. Allen and I had a quiet, but pleasant New Year and Nathaniel witnessed his first New Year count down. Then he had a busy week with two doctor’s appointment. The first was with the pediatric cardiologist. Shortly after he was born, one of our pediatricians heard a heart murmur and made a referral for a full work up. He did have a murmur and a normal hole in his heart. It was nothing to worry much about, but they wanted to see him again at one month. Things have improved significantly and they can barely hear the murmur any more. Hopefully we will have just one more follow up at six months to see if the hole has closed any. After that, Nathaniel went to his regular pediatrician for his one month check up. He is a healthy little guy and is now topping the scales at 10 pounds, 3 ounces. Not surprising as he eats 7-8 six ounce bottles every day. He is well into his 3-6 month old clothes. Here are a few cute pics.

I have been stitching as well since the new year. If you will remember, I noted in my last post that I would be starting Alchemical Romance as my guilt-free January. I have been unable to put it away to work on other project since then and I am now almost a quarter finished. Here it is a few days ago.

And last to remind them that they are still much loved, some adorable pictures of the kittens. Here is a wonderful picture of Zoe. Miraculously she is in focus.
And this wonderful picture of “Evil Cooper” that Allen caught just by chance the other day:)
