I am still here

No, I have not abandoned this blog. I have the beginnings of several posts in my head, but rarely do I find the time, have the energy and access to the computer all at the same time.

Lucy is 7w old now. While I'm still tired, I don't feel as much like a zombie. Gus is usually a super helpful big brother and adjusting to having a living sibling. We just celebrated Thanksgiving and are gearing up for Christmas...I'm not looking forward to it (hopefully more on that in a future post).

I'm doing a good job, I think, of keeping up with reading others' blogs, it's just writing on my own that's been put on the back burner for a little bit. To those that are still reading, thank you. I will return!

She's Here!

I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to post her entire birth story, but Lucy arrived on Friday, October 10 after a successful induction!!!

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.
