Baby Sister will be 8 weeks old on Monday. I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. Katy sent this picture this morning via cell phone. I can't believe she's already so big ... just over 11 pounds. She continues to run a low grade fever on a regular basis and Katy reports that she's pretty fussy in the evenings. Just to be safe, she went back to the pediatrician this morning. He ordered a few more tests but reported that he's not worried about her. She seems to be thriving. They'll continue treating the fever with Tylenol for now.
Because of other summer travel plans, Grams probably won't be seeing her until June 23rd. That's a long time and I will admit that I'm having withdrawals. I'm thinking I may spend the next few weeks sewing up some clothes for both Our Little Princess and Baby Sister. But, I'm waiting for some guidance from their Mom. I know they both have lots of clothes. But, hey, a girl can never have too many clothes, right?
I'm also working on a list of things to accomplish this summer while school is out. Right now, I'm formulating a plan to convert the under-utilized cabinet above my dryer into a storage space for all my small appliances which now live on top of my dryer. This will require a new step stool so I can reach them and will also include removing the existing cabinet doors. Grandad is not totally opposed to this idea. So we'll start with cleaning it out. Maybe we'll get that underway tomorrow.
Today's project is cleaning the chandelier in my bathroom. It will be the first time I've disassembled and washed all the pieces of this one. Wish me luck.
I'm also still working on an appropriate nickname for Baby Sister. Right now I'm leaning towards "Her Highness" because she does seem to demand everyone's full attention. We'll see as time goes by if it fits her personality or if something else emerges.
