Welcome Home Jayne!

Jayne came home from the hospital today. He was born at 8:22 p.m. on September 1st. He was 8 pounds 1 ounce and 20 inches long. The labor was 15 hours and pushing was 22 minutes after that. I did the whole thing naturally, no drugs at all. Adam was a wonderful coach. I never would have made it through without him. Jayne is a beautiful, sweet, little boy. I couldn't be happier with the end result. The first picture is right after I gave birth and they put him on top of me. #2 is our little family shortly after delivery. Next is a close up of Jayne smiling in his sleep in his bed. The last 2 are of Jayne getting ready to go home.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
