For some size perspective, I placed a quarter and one of Peanut's Preemie socks next to the bootie. The sock is a bit stretched out as I keep putting it on my finger and saying, "Look how tiny her foot was!" I only wish I'd thought enough to have taken a photo of those teeny feet. I couldn't help but stare at them each time I visited her. So very tiny. Who knew they could be that small? She was 4 lbs 6 ozs. Baby Grant was 3 lbs 2 ozs, I can only imagine how the sight of his teeny feet would make me swoon.
This weekend was pretty quiet for the family. We spent some time on lockdown. We haven't done that in about a month. So what does that mean? We watched a lot of TV, played with Peanut and ate from the fridge. Also means I didn't make the goals I'd set to work on The Preemie Project stuff. Sorry, Laura. I feel terrible about that. Mister has a date with the WWE tomorrow night and I plan on spending some quality time with the marketing materials. The only thing that doesn't make me feel totally horrible is the chance I'll have the bootie pattern cleared for donation. Did I mention how fast they knit up? I'm all about instant gratification.
In other news...work will seriously suck this week. That's all I'm gonna say about that. I took the brave step onto the scale this morning and found that I'm down 17 lbs in 6 1/2 weeks. I'm still in total shock and awe over that. Don't question, just keep doing what I'm doing...seems to be working somehow. Few last photos...one is of Pepperino and her lounging glory.The others are from out trip to the zoo. I just got a good look at these and am amazed at how cool they look. The zoo has the world's largest polar bear exhibit. It is amazing! While there, we saw the brand new baby cub and it's momma hanging out on their meadow. As we wound our way down to the tunnel, we were told by a guide that one of the bears was swimming in the tunnel and to hurry to catch it. This is the awesome sight we saw:
How often can you say a polar bear walked over you? If you're ever in the Metro Detroit area, please take the time to visit the Detroit Zoo. It's not actually in Detroit, but in Royal Oak. They also have an amazing butterfly garden that must be seen to be believed. No photos will ever do the experience justice.
