Squawkers galore …

Sienna started having her pups about 3 hours after my last post.  I quickly recognized that we were in for the ‘all day’ plan .. so Tuesday was spent reassuring mom; catching babies, tying umbilical cords; enticing Mom with vanilla ice cream, hot dogs and canned food; trips in and out of the house – as we were never quite sure what that pressure/urge meant … only one pup delivered in the snow, thank you very muchDSC00621 – and he’s doing fine.

Now, some 40 hours later, Mom is eating and drinking and transitioning to motherhood beautifully.  And the pups are converting well to life on the outside … latching on, scooting about and being available for mom’s kamikaze cleaning sprees/repositioning spins.

Meanwhile – we’re all sitting close, ‘babysitting’ – which gives me lots of net-surfing time (and the kids are mastering their new video games).  I was bad … (can’t even pretend it was just a little-bit bad) I now have all SORTS of embossing/die-cutting equipment on it’s way to me.  Won’t be long now … Oh, Amazon.com – how I love you!

About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
