What A Week!

It has been a week since I last posted.
It seems I caught my Grandson's cold.
It hasn't been fun.
I've been resting and trying to feel better.  
Look what arrived int he mail to help me feel better!  I love love this Eiffel Tower mug and have already used it for my tea and honey.  A sweet 'just because' gift from my blog friend Barbara~ 

I have been thrifting items for the new baby girl
I found this CoSleeper Bassinet at the thrift shop for $25...it has already taken it's place in her parent's bedroom where she will sleep when she comes home.
I found some bassinet sheets, a few towels, sweet bib and book for our new baby girl.
So far she doesn't have full name but "Scout"seems to be the decided middle name.
She is growing and moving like crazy!
A very active baby her Mom says.
A big baby bump since she is due April 13th
We are all so excited!

Sara's Birthday is Tue and her sweet husband planned a get away for the two of them before baby #2 comes.  I kept Tiger even though I was not 100% and he was so good and played well by himself a lot. 
Having a picnic!
Tiger loves to take photos with my camera and has gotten pretty good at it.  I found an extra camera and gave it to Tiger.  He knows it is not a toy and he was so excited to take photos and have a camera of his own.  It was the first thing he showed his parents when they returned for him.
I know he will enjoy taking photos.
See the My Little Pony's on my front door...they have magnet feet and my door is metal.  These belonged to both of my girls and Tiger has enjoyed playing with them also.

So that has been my week!  I am behind in my Art Project but did start it yesterday and hope to finish it soon.  Then try to catch up with this weeks challenge.  I hope you had a good week!

I'll be watching the Academy Awards tonight
How about you?

Wishing you JOY,
Linda

So many people are talking about their colds and they do not seem to be departing quickly. Hope you are better soon.

How fun to be adding a new grandbaby.

Donna said...

Hope you are feeling better soon, Linda! How sweet of your blogging friend to send you the Eiffel Tower mug! Sounds like you had fun with your grandson, and bet you can hardly wait for his little sister to arrive!

I can't believe how much Tiger has grown. He's gone from the toddler stage to little boy. Don't you wish they would not grow up quite so fast? He is precious! Know you are anxious for that baby girl to get here. Here's praying for safe delivery and a healthy baby girl.

So sorry that you have been sick, Linda but happy to hear that you are feeling better. Tiger just keeps getting cuter. How is that possible?? Your daughter looks adorable pregnant. I know how excited you must be getting. xo Laura

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, one of the joys of grandbabies - catching their germs. That's happened to me now twice! :) I can hardly believe that Sara is almost ready to deliver. Seem just like yesterday you told us! I'm still praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sorry you have been under the weather Linda. Hopefully it will go away totally soon! My students have been out a lot with various illnesses and I pray I don't get any of them. Sounds like you had a fun time with Tiger in spite of it. Your daughter is beautiful...I love the baby bump...:) So sweet! Have a lovely week.

Nice finds for the sweet baby. You and Tiger will have many nice outings when you can teach him how to take pictures.

Nothing like a good 'Tiger Dose' to get you feeling a 'bit' better! JUST what the Dr. ordered ;-)

Cheri said...

He is so cute, Linda, and this is good he likes taking pictures, he can take lots of his new baby sister.

A few days with Tiger sounds perfect, even if you caught his cold. The baby bump is so exciting!!!! Hope you feel better,
Meredith

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Hope you are feeling better soon, Linda! I think it was a great idea to let Tiger use the camera...he may develop a real interest in it from a young age!

I hear ya on the cold - I am sick (again!), too! I think I have bronchitis this time. I had the respiratory flu at the beginning of the year. Don't know why I keep getting sick, but I'm so tired of it and winter! Tiger looks like such a darling little boy. You can just tell by the photos how sweet he is. I hope he adores his baby sister and that he's not too jealous! Your daughter looks so much like you. :-) PS - love your Eiffel Tower mug. What a sweet gift!

Rue said...

Your grandson is adorable :)
I hope you feel better, Linda. It seems like everyone is sick right now, so I'm holed up in my house trying not to get it.

The only good part about the award show, in my opinion was Gaga's performance. She was amazing!

A beautiful mama! Love Scout as a middle name. A friend named her girl Harper Lee Scout! I hope Tiger is prepared. Lovely gift - had to make you feel better!

Sarah said...

Linda, not long till that baby girl will be here. Your new finds will be well used. Glad you are better, but take it easy.

Feral Turtle said...

Consider It All Joy said...

HA - I love the ponies on the door, my grands would do that too! I do hope you are feeling better! And, when we were preparing for our littles, it was so much fun to thrift special items for them. They grow up so face though!! Blessings to you, Cindy

mrs. c said...

I hope you feel better, so many folks have been sick this winter. Tiger looks so much older with his hair cut. Is there anything you need for the baby girl, let me know because I am always running across baby items. The pony's are darling, Jessica had so many when she was little and I think they are darling. We are doing well at the booth but I have been to school only one day since the 13th because of bad weather! i am enjoying your art each week!

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Tiger has grown like a little weed!
Aren't grands just the very best medicine in the world even when they make us sick!
April will be here before you know it.
Get better soon!
