Walter Moves In

We brought Walter home from the hospital on September 6th, 2 days after his birth.  Amazingly, he took a look all around at his nursery, and I could tell he saw the bold patterns in the black and white bannerfish!  What a great feeling!  He was 4 days overdue, and actually holding his head up pretty well shortly after he was born.  When the hospital photographer put him on his belly for a snapshot, he lifted up onto his knees for several seconds.  I also think he can see colors and shapes well past a 15 inch distance.  In these pictures, he is one week and 3 days old, and loving his mural!  I ask him, "Where's your fishies?" and he looks right at the nearest bannerfish.  I'm patting myself on the back for a good call on the bold mural featuring black and white.  I will definitely suggest this to my clients in the future.

3 Days Overdue!

It's been a long time since my last blog post, and I have been patiently awaiting the arrival of my little man.  The nursery still has a few details: my two small shelves that Bradley painted need to be hung, and I was still working on some artwork.  As you can see, I am also still waiting on the alterations man to finish my cushion cover.  I opted to have this made because it had piping and a zipper which seemed too complicated for my ever changing attention span, not to mention the fact that I was down to my last 2 yards of fabric and can't afford any mistakes.

I received the ottoman from Tazi Designs, and it stunk so bad!  We had to put it upstairs in an unused area of the house for a couple of weeks.  We brought it back down today, and no more smell.  It smelled like it had been sitting in a big pile of manure when we received it.  It is all handmade in a village somewhere in Morocco.  Who knows?  It is made of leather and I used some of my Coach leather conditioner to clean it off.  Then I sprayed the surface with a thin layer of lysol.  I can only hope it is "clean" now.

As for this blog post's title, yes I am 3 days overdue.  It's my fault for wishing this pregnancy would last as long as possible as soon as I found out I was pregnant.  I had a span of dates from my 3 separate doctors.  Sept 1-2 from my fertility doctor, August 31st from my OB, and August 30th from the perinatologist.  I was hoping for September 2nd, and it's now the 3rd.  I haven't had any more contractions either.  An induction is scheduled for Wednesday if he doesn't decide to come out before then!
