Wee Nut

Owain Pre-Op

I have been taking photos of my Little Wee Nut for days. While we were waiting in the pre-op room last Friday before his Fontan, I got this photo of Owee with Daddy. This was after he had his dose of versed and was feeling a little silly.

My Little {hero} Owee

While I have been sucked into hospital time, I have lost hours and track of what day it is, but the good news is that Owain is doing great. Friday was such a long, long day, I thought it would never end. I am still recovering from the stress of waiting and worrying. Not...

Final Thoughts Before Owain’s Surgery Tomorrow

Owain Is So Much Like His Big Brothers

He hasn’t taped yarn to his face, or wrapped himself in paper like Wing Nut did, but I won’t be surprised when he does. Wee Nut has an awesome imagination and keeps me on my toes. For the majority of today, he wouldn’t answer me unless I called him Wall-e. He crawls around on...

I Love Me a Sprinkler Kind Of Day

There was so much to do today. Dishes, laundry, the floors, the bathrooms, pretty much the whole house needed to get cleaned before we go on vacation on Thursday.

A New Skirt For Honey Nut Sewn From Owee’s Jeans

Since I got my sewing machine last month I haven’t really done much with it. Mostly repairing clothing and blankets and making cloth napkins. Nothing too exciting. Nothing to complicated. I needed a bit of time to get to know my new machine and get back into sewing on a machine again. I used...
