A Couple of Updates

It seems that time is flying by, and going slowly, at the same time, so I thought it best to do an update post.

Lucy's 2nd Trip to L&D

This morning I had an appointment at the Diabetes Center located at the same hospital that I will be delivering Lucy. The appointment was at the same time that I usually have an appointment for my NST's on Mondays and Fridays. Usually, Lucy kicks me on the drive to the hospital. This morning she didn't.

The Artist Has Been Found

Thank you to my husband and CSmith78, we know who the artist is of the picture in my last post. The name of the piece is Lost Child, and the artist is Farhad Foroutanian. Apparently he created the piece for UNICEF in the late 2007.

I've sent an email to the email shown on his website to ask about a commissioned piece, but I have not heard anything back from him :(

Have you seen this picture?

Diary of a Little Chicken posted this picture on her most recent blog post. She found the picture from someone that posted it in a forum, and she doesn't know where it originally came from.

I desperately want to find the artist to see if he/she would be able to customize a piece to represent our family.


I know I don't have a huge readership, but I'm hoping that someone, somewhere knows something that can help me find the artist. It looks like the artist's name may be in the lower right-hand corner, but nothing that I'm entering into Google is returning any promising result.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Break down last Monday

Last Monday I had a scheduled phone call with the maternity program offered through my insurance company. The only reason I even signed up for hte program was because if I go all the way through, I get $50. I usually find the phone calls not helpful at all, but there are not that many, and they're not that long, so I figure it's worth my time. Right now, I'm wishing I never signed up for the program, but grateful I did all at the same time.

I needed a break

I needed a break from thinking and trying to process my emotions, thus my lack of posting.

We officially have a preschooler

Gus is now 4 years old. I can no longer be deluded and think that he's still a toddler. On Thursday, Gus will attend his first day of pre-K and I'm already all emotional about it. Gus was in day care and preschool prior to our move, so it's not feelings of him being away from me or anything like that which are causing my emotions to run amok. I think it's more the fact that he'll be going to pre-K at the local elementary school, with teachers that are certified by the state to teach him, with a principal!

Flu vaccines

I've mostly calmed down since Thursday. I'm still sad, but am also annoyed, angry and hurt.
