Over the Moon, Baby

Hey, kids.  I know it's been quiet around here for a bit but I have a really good reason!  But first up, a card.

I fell in love with the Moon Baby stamp set as soon as I saw it, and this is its maiden voyage Chez Snapdragon.  I did a mirror image of a Fab Friday sketch:

I actually made the card in time to post over there, thinking I'd be able to get this blog post done before the challenge expired, buuuut that didn't happen.  I think you'll agree that my reason for not getting it posted is pretty good, though.

Meet our new addition, Ryan Luke!  I was *hoping* (since he was so late already) that he'd arrive on February 14 (and share a birthday with his dad), but this squirt had other ideas and didn't make an appearance until the wee sma's of February 15.  He weighed in at 8 pounds, 10 ounces, and as of yesterday he's at 9 pounds, 3 ounces.  Which feels more like 90 pounds when I'm trying to schlep him around in his car set.

The hubs took this picture and I just love it.  Sure, it might be nice if the depth of field was a little deeper so both eyes were in focus, or if I hadn't been wearing glasses (the blurry bit at the top of the photo) but despite its imperfections this is one of my favorite pictures ever.

So when will I get to stamp again?  Guess that depends on Ryan and getting him established with a good sleep schedule!  In the meantime, he's about to wake up and demand some food.  Cheers, y'all!

Cute, cute. That first photo is from your professional photographer, right? I'll have to send you the one I have -- I like it really well, too. It will be too long between visits. I miss cuddling him already. Sigh.
