Baby Update, books read, book giveaway!

The baby is awesome, thanks for asking! He's just over two weeks now, and he's cuter than cute. The jaundice is no longer a problem and he seems to be eating like a champ. The pirate is still pretty ambivalent about him, but occasionally is super cute. I'm not really sure what I've been doing with my time off, it seems I must be spending all my time sitting around holding the baby cause I sure can't figure out what else I'm doing.

I have done a little reading. I finished off the third Jim Butcher, Grave Peril, and will hopefully post a review one day. Then I went out of my usual pattern to start The Tin Roof Blowdown by James Lee Burke. This is my first Burke, but I heard it was really good and painted a very accurate picture of post-Katrina New Orleans. It does. I'm not sure I'd want to read a lot of Burke otherwise, but am enjoying this one.

Speaking of books, Natasha at Maw Books is giving away 20 books in celebration of her 100th post. Maw Books is a new blog to me, I found a link on another blog this evening. Go check it out and leave some comments. I have already added her to my Google Reader!

I finally managed to take some pictures of the baby's room- I didn't finish everything I wanted to do, I kinda ran out of time... Here's a little peek. I made the quilt the baby is laying on and the pillows. My husband made the built-ins in the closet. I still need to do something with that big long shelf.


  1. Congratulations on your new baby, and the room looks great!!

  2. Oh man, you're making me baby hungry again. So, so cute. He look so tiny in that huge crib! How far apart are your two boys? My boys are 20 months apart.

    Thanks for posting about the giveaway. To tell you the truth, I've visited here before but hadn't left a comment before. I have been creating a database of book reviews and I've already added your blog there. It's if you wanted to take a look.

  3. Natasha, they are 3 years and 3 days apart. They were supposed to be 3 years and a month apart, but the baby thought otherwise.

  4. What a sweetie! You did a great job with the room, Lisa.

  5. Awwww... the baby looks adorable (have you thought of a blog-name for him as yet?) and that's a great room!
