Hello again.

I've been a bit of a busy girl the last few weeks.  And here's why...


My sweet baby boy will turn 6 weeks old tomorrow!  I can't believe how fast it's gone by.  I've learned a lot about him.

  • I've learned that we are a fan of baby wearing.  Right now Daniel is snuggled up against my chest wrapped in a Moby.  After a long while of fighting with his fussing this morning, I wrapped him up and he fell asleep within a few minutes.  Once I'm finished writing this post, I'm going to head down to my studio space and try to cut out the pieces for my quilt while wearing him.  
  • Remember all those diapers my mom and I made?  Well, I've learned that just because they are cute doesn't mean they will work.  I think I've given up on using them because every time I have, they have leaked.  I think maybe there are too many layers in the pattern I used to get a good gather at the legs and back, thus making the seal not so good.
  • I've learned that we're good at breastfeeding.  Last Wednesday, the little guy weighed in at 9 pounds, 12 ounces!  
  • I've learned that we like to snuggle.
  • I've learned that Daniel is a bit of a music snob.  We listen to a lot of the Rockabye Baby station on Pandora & if he doesn't like a song he will whine until it is changed.
  • I've learned that Daniel is a fan of Wassily Kandinsky.  In my living room, we have a poster of this Kandinsky painting.  Daniel loves to stare at it.  
I'll try to pop in a little more often, but right now my days are mostly filled with dirty diapers, naps, and feeding.
