sneaking in baby..

So Tuesday afternoon after wee one had his shots at the doctor and we got home and he was sleepy most of day I thought I'll go for a wee walk with him in the wrap. Then I thought the cleaners are coming over so I normally get out of house for the two hours so they can clean without me getting under their feet or vacuum cleaner...

So the cinema is a block away from our house. Very handy to just take a wee walk. So walked over to see The Seeker which is from the fantasy book The Dark Rising. Its such a great local cinema - they saw me walking in so they paused the movie so I wouldn't miss any... Seriously... Fionn was all wrapped up sleeping on me and I sat near the back in case he woke up and needed to go out with him. But he slept all way through and I covered his ears for any bits I thought noisy. There was only one other lady in the whole cinema and it was brilliant. Two hours of just sitting and chilling. I suppose I could do the same at home but its hard to just sit when you think, I should do that laundry, clean that room, check email, pay bills, send off those birthday cards etc.. So sitting in dark just cuddling him and watching a new release movie - magic! Doing it now while I still can as I know a few months time he wont be that sleepy :-)

Hi, Sinead! It's your Irish American buddy Bridget! Sorry I haven't contacted you in a while, but with 4 kids, life is very busy! But congratulations on the birth of your very cute little Fionn! I just caught up with your blog and was curious to see how the HS situation was going. Sounds like Fionn is in good shape! My little Paddy Boy just turned 1 on August 30th. He's huge! Over 26 pounds and he has been healthy! His hemoglobin levels have been at normal now since about May. We will have to take him into Georgetown University Hospital soon though for a full check up.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi, and wish you and your family well! You sure do have an Irish looking son! Big heads run in our Irish families, don't they!?! Anyway, let me know if you need any advice on newborns/2month olds! I'm sure you have family and friends to help you out, but just thought I'd offer as well. Also, if you could pray for a friend of our family., they just had a baby on Friday and she has trisomy and wasn't expected to live for more than a few hours after birth. Well, little baby Rose Mary Teresa has made it for 6 DAYS now! As a Mom, it's really touched me, so I figured I'd ask you to say a little prayer for this baby as well. Thank you! Keep up the good work with little Fionn! Goodness, he's a sweet cutey!
