A Little Bit of This a Little Bit of That

Thought I would share a pic of Peter and his cousin Allison a day after she was born at the hospital
Good evening friends!  Thought I'd try my hand at another post, partially because I feel there is still so much news I haven't shared and also to motivate me to continue posting!  As I sit here blogging the room I'm in has the lights out as I'm trying to get little Fox to fall asleep.  He is in his swing right now making a bit of noise but I can tell he is tired.  No, we don't have a set bed-time for him here yet.  For the first several months he would sleep when he was tired no trouble lights on or off.  Things are changing a little I'm noticing the last couple weeks and he's getting tired around 8:30ish-9 but he likes to eat/be held instead of just put down.  I'm sure eventually we'll need to do more of a "time for bed" routine but so far it's not quite the case as often we are out and about so a routine then wouldn't be the most helpful either. 

As I mentioned previously, much has happened and one of the things was a little over a month ago my first niece was born.  She is so cute and very tiny compared to Little Fox!  Little Fox was almost 3 months old when she was born.  Time flies though and yesterday I took him in for his 4 month appointment!  Can't believe we have had him 4 months already!  It was a year ago I found out I was pregnant with him--excited but nervous I would miscarry again.  Feels like just yesterday.  His doctor appointment went well--he weighed in at 15.3 pounds!  Big little guy!  I love him so :)

Today my MIL and I went to church then hung out back at my place.  We chatted and talked about quilts and she showed me how to properly cut a boarder for Little Fox's blanket I am sewing him.  It will be so much fun to finally complete (I hope very soon!)  Starting projects is my weakness/strength but finishing them can be more difficult for me! 

Among other news I also am taking my dog to a Beginners I obedience class and have been doing commissions to pay for the class.  As a finale for the night I'll share some of the pieces I've been doing.  I have a few more to go after these as well!

Think that's all for tonight.  Hoping to get a lot more stuff done tomorrow (especially practice Strider's training before class!)

  3. Hi Maria! Those babies are so adorable. It is nice they are so close in age. Your pictures are amazing. They look like they are going to come to life...guess that's why you are a wonderful artist. Have a good week. blessings,
