Now, I don’t really think there are such things as newborn “essentials”. You really don’t need much for those snuggly newborn days…just your warm arms and affection, a blanket, and good milk! But there are a few certain things that I was glad to have on hand in caring for little Noah Jackson! They made life easier in those early days of long nights and new discoveries as a mama.
What did I do with the rest of my time? Netflix.
I kid you not, I watched so many hours of tv that week, that the days seem to run together. I didn’t craft, didn’t paint, didn’t touch the Jane Austen that I was in the middle of. I didn’t even open up the brand new sewing machine I had gotten for Christmas.
This month’s theme: palm branches. I knew that I wanted to do something with greens – because we are dying for some Spring over here! Thinking on all the kinds of greens and leaves I could choose from…I decided on delicate palms, because at the end of this month is Palm Sunday, the week before Easter morning.
