Two posts in one month!

Who could believe it! Well, when you're up at 1 am due to nursing/storm, it works. I keep joking about how much more I could get done if I didn't need to sleep - here's my chance!

Things here are good - The Bug was 7 months old last Sunday - where does the time go? She can sit up unsupported, though she likes to throw herself backwards, so we have to be near (wood floors are killer for your wee little head - ask me how I know). She likes most foods - yogurt, applesauce and bananas are favorites. This week we're trying peas and mango. She sleeps pretty well - most nights only up once to nurse, but when things don't go well she's up twice (like tonight - she was up past her bedroom due to The Girl's spring church musical). She has favorite toys now, and loves to play. We hung a swing outside for her and she loves it.

I've been bitten hard by the sewing bug - I have made several things in the past, but I want to sew all.the.time. now. Which has led to some fabric purchases. Ahem. Let's just say that perhaps I'm running into the arms of my LQS (local quilt shop) now that my LYS is (almost) gone. Last day for LYS is Thursday. Sob. Sewing heals all wounds, right?

I'm actually knitting again - wanting to rush home and knit, working on several different things. It feels good.

My spring classes are over, and I have a month off until summer classes start - two days before I'm out of school. Of course. But I'll take it where I can get it.

I have jury duty next week, and I'm actually looking forward to it, for the break from school it provides, since I have no sick/personal days to take. OH, and knitting time!

I'm starting to feel sleepy again, and the wind has died down, so I'm going to see if I can get back to sleep. More here soon, including pictures!

    Our family's standard "line" for not having been heard from for some time is "Don't pay the ransom: I've escaped!"

    Good to hear from you again. I'll hold the payment! :-)

  2. Thanks for the update! I always assume that people who are working and parenting (especially babies) are buried in life. :)

  3. I think tile floors are worse for the little 'uns. Ask me how I know....I'm so glad my little guy sits reliably now!

  4. Glad to get an update from you! Sorry to hear about being kept up (though I suppose that comes with having a little one). Looking forward to the pics!

  5. Your posts lately sounds so familiar to me, even though it's been nearly fifteen years since I was worrying about bumped heads and the excitement of new food discoveries. It sounds like you're enjoying it, even though it is EXHAUSTING.
