Ziggy Monster has arrived.  About a week early.  Because he is a pound smaller then most of the babies that have been born into this family, he seems very small to me. 

I did well though.  I had gone to the thrift store to look for clothes for him.  Babies just grow so fast when they are small I thought why not.  I had found a elephant printed onesie.  It has been the only thing that has fit.  He will be coming home in it.  

With him being a week early, most of the projects I am doing for him are not done.  I enlisted Koda Bear's help to sand this morning and I got the cradle put together.

All the edges are sanded so even though it is not stained or polyurethaned, it can be used.  It does not rock very well because I just had a circular saw to cut all the corners.  The boyos took a grinder to it and helped me with the hand holds.

The cradle can be picked up but there is a hope that it will be able to be swung.  I felt the hand holds might be a way to do that.  Because it sure does not rock very well.  I will see if the Tall Short person wishes for me to stain and polyurethane it.  It will be up to her.
