I keep starting a new post and then something happens and I have to stop writing and then it’s a month later and I still haven’t finished. I guess that’s how it goes when you have a super energetic 4.5 month old, right?
hi! I’m four months old.
Charlie looks a bit older than the last time I posted here, right? Somehow he’s turned into a little boy, and it’s so much fun. He’s super smiley, loves to laugh at his dad, and put EVERYTHING in his mouth (yay for teething). I’m back at work now, and he’s transitioned really well into our awesome daycare. It’s been a super busy time, but a really, really awesome time too. And it just keeps getting better! It’s so fun to watch him play and try new things and see the little wheels in his brain turning when he figures out that he can roll over, or grab a toy, or pull mama’s glasses off. ha.
Maternity leave was wonderful – lots of sleeping late with Charlie and going to new mom’s group and mama-baby yoga. I feel really really lucky that I had three months of vacation time saved up and was able to use it. Now it’s back to reality, and working, but that’s been okay too. There was definitely a transition from the newborn haze to the working world, but we’re doing pretty well.
I’ve even found some time for crafting! I joined my first ever quilting bee, and I’m SO excited about it. I’ve been sewing a lot, and this bee is going to give me a chance to try some new quilt techniques. It’s an awesomely talented group of women, and I can’t wait to sew some blocks up.
I sewed up some wet bags too, and a local baby/parenting store commissioned me to make some for them! Apparently they’ve been selling pretty well and I’m so glad. We don’t cloth diaper, but I use my wet bag for dirty disposables when we’re out and about, and I also have one for bringing my breastpump parts to and from work.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to – working, crafting, being a mama. What have you been up to?
