Just Another Day?

March 29, my life changed.  I became a mother.  Not in the normal way that most women enter motherhood, but in the crazy way that you thought you were dying and so was your unborn child way.  I gave birth to Eli Weston Soulsby on the night of March 29th 2010.  I delievered 4 months early because I had preeclampsia.  Everyone said that having a kid would change my life.  Boy, were they ever right.  Eli was born at 24 weeks and 1 pound.  Today he is corrected at 38 weeks and 4 pounds 2 ounces.  My life is still not 'normal'.  We are still out in Seattle in a NICU waiting for Eli's eyes to heal from laser surgery.  I look forward to the day when we are at home together as a family.  Just getting back to Montana will be a relief, creating with paper is a nice release and soon I will be reunited with my supplies.  We have been staying at the Ronald McDonald House which is FANTASTIC.  If you have been looking for a charity to donate to, it's a GREAT one!  While out here in Seattle I have also found a stamp store, imagine that, Impress has some great stuff!
