This That and the Other

Well, what an exciting week we had. Busy as usual. My sister (who lives in NYC) had her little baby boy one month early. Her water broke early Thursday morning. Luckily, Brian was due to arrive home on Thursday around 3:15 and Brennon was at school so I needed to find someone to look after Noah until Brian got home. My wonderful mother-in-law stepped right in. I picked her up at work and she took a half day so she could help me out. I drove up to Bethlehem to the Transbridge Bus Terminal. I was aiming to get on a 2:00 bus. Seriously all the Sunday drivers were out on a THURSDAY. I pulled into the bus station as the bus was leaving. I had to wait to catch the next bus at 3:45. This put me in rush hour traffic near NYC so I didn't get into the hospital until 7:30. I did get to see my beautiful (and tiny) nephew, Owen William Sherman. He was born 5 pounds 9.7 ounces. He dropped weight and now he's in the 4 pound 12 ounce range. Shelley got discharged today and Owen is perfectly healthy except for some jaundice (he'll most likely get discharged late tonight or Sunday). Shelley had a fairly easy labor and delivery and I'm so proud of her. She did great with the help of Mark (who rubbed her back with tennis balls during labor).
I don't have any pictures on my camera, but I will post some as soon as I get them from others.

On the jewelry front, I created some new pieces today. They are mostly necklace/earring sets. I also created a few neat bracelets. Look for them on my website in the next few days. Until then, here's a sneak peak at my lavender love necklace. There are matching earrings to this necklace, but I haven't photographed them yet.
