Meet Samuel Ian

Born April 12th at about 7:30 pm.
5 lb 6oz
18 inches
He and I are both doing well.
We finally decided on the name for good in the operating room.
He's got an impressive set of lungs- you can pretty much hear him from one end of the mother/baby hall to the other.
Anna and Ellery are taking it all very seriously.

It's probably a very good thing he had to be born by C section no matter what. The little acrobat not only had the cord wrapped around his neck three times- he had also managed to tie a knot in it.

I'm going to have to take some size comparison pictures tomorrow so I can remember just how small 5lbs 6oz really is. And some proud daddy pictures, of course.

Congratulations!!!! I'm glad you guys are all doing well and that you had a c-section so that cord didn't become a problem! Evelyn was 5 lbs 6 oz too. They are totally twins.

He is truly a gorgeous baby. And most babies that aren't mine aren't gorgeous. Just so you know.

Also, I love round c-section heads. Adorable.

Also, that bath picture is too much cuteness.

Also, I love the wailing picture with the scrunched up nose.

Also, lay off the crunches until your scar heals. I'm talking from experience.

(btw, I had to delete my comment so that I could edit it. I hate making typos. I know, let it go. But I can't.)

Congratulations, Trina. He is a very handsome little guy. Love the picture of him getting his "hair" washed. Cute! I'm glad you're doing well. Your girls are beautiful! Have a speedy recovery.

Holy crap! This is what I get for not checking blogs for a few days. Congratufreakinglations!

Also, those pictures look great, especially considering where they were taken. You're a mad genius. With a great camera.

And Anna looks like some kind of mischievous pixie child in that one picture.

Something A Little Different

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that for my birthday this week, I got a weaving loom of my very own. Specifically, a 15" Cricket Loom. There was some major happy dancing involved.

Feeling a little nervous. #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:06am PDT

Now what do I do with it? #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41am PDT

WooHoo! Thank goodness for the many YouTube videos which got me here! A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 10:39am PDT
I spent all morning on my birthday watching YouTube instructional videos, putting it together, getting it warped, and starting my very first handwoven scarf using bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects.

Today I finished it.

Sure, it's got some issues. The edges are a bit wonky. The fringe went all fuzzy when I washed it. But, I love it. I love how thin and drap…

Ellery's Baptism and the First Day of School

Exciting times around our household in the past week. This Saturday, Ellery was baptized.

Almost time to go! #baptismday #eightisgreat A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 9:10am PDT

And after. It took two tries-her toe popped up. #baptismday #eightisgreat #familiesareforever A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 1:03pm PDT

She was so happy and excited. It was a great day.

And then, today, the kids finally started school! Hallelujah!

The local school district went back to school like two and a half weeks ago. We've all been anxiously waiting for their charter school to start.

First grade for this guy and an empty house for me. Every summer I let his hair grow wild so that I can enjoy his curls. I was all ready to give him his standard back to school haircut until we went to meet his teacher. She went into raptures over his curls. So, they stayed. We'll see how long they last now that he has to face a squirt bottle and a bru…

Christmas Gifts #1

Most of October, November and December were consumed by secret Christmas craft projects. It's such a relief to finally be able to blog and Instagram about them without worry. It's going to take a couple of blog posts to get through them all.

 First up, my woven projects. I made two scarves- one for my father-in-law's Christmas Eve birthday. Since he bought me my Cricket Loom for my birthday, it was only fitting I weave him something for his birthday.

The second was a super soft and hopefully super classy plaid scarf for my sister-in-law. It was really difficult to pry this one away from Ellery after our little photo shoot. The girl definitely has an appreciation for my handcrafts- especially the soft and cozy ones.
