It's been nice getting back into making things with my hands as life resumes normalcy. I had fun packaging up these cookies as a little thank you for everyone who brought us meals in those early weeks after Ian's arrival. Aren't those beets pretty? I roasted them with a bit of oil, salt, and pepper and we had them with some fish Irving grilled. And that crusty bread - so good and so easy - really! I'm a lazy cook and generally only like to make things that are quick and easy. Recipe found here.

Being the second kid, Ian usually gets the shaft. It doesn't help that his temperament seems to be more easygoing, so he's often ignored, poor guy. I thought I'd make it up to him by designing a nicer birth announcement. I wasn't feeling very creative after Oscar was born, so his announcement was pretty plain and boring. Overall, adjusting to Ian seems easier, mainly because I'm just more relaxed now that I know what I'm doing (for the most part!). Life is starting to feel more normal. I've re-opened the shop, and have been checking some big items off the to-do list. It feels nice.
