I feel like I've left this blog hanging. I've mostly been posting at my other blog - don't have the energy for both right now, and knitting is sparse. If you don't follow my non-knitting blog - go here for an announcement on the twins birth, and here for the tragedy that followed.
We are holding up well as can be expected, and little Maggie is a tough nut. She is pretty gassy, and pretty much wants to be held all the time which I'm happy to try to accommodate, but a girl has to sleep sometimes. I did try to go without sleep for about 2 weeks, trust me, it's not doable. We have switched to soy formula, gripe water and mylicon drops... but any other tips on gassy babies is appreciated. She seems fine during the day when it's possible to hold her, or at least the crying is tolerable, but at night, when everyone is sleeping... it's rough. Last night she was up from about 10:30 - 2:30 on and off. My doc doesn't think it's reflux or colic - and we have been having her sleep on an incline too.
I mostly popped over here to bitch that in the craziness that has been the last month of my life, I seem to have lost all of my needles, and my Baby Mine pattern. I went to Webs and I have 2 things to knit that I'm pretty excited about - the first is a larger sized Baby Mine for Maggie's naming ceremony (she will be wearing my baptismal dress which has short sleeves) and the other is the Rhea Lace Stole for my aunt who has really helped us out over the past month.
I have a lot of needles so it just doesn't make sense that they can ALL disappear. Grrr.
