Just stuff...

Totally wish I had more to post about for ICLW. Not much going on, really. I am spending time with my Little Dude, hiking local trails with my mother, and trying to find space for me. That is harder to do with a little one than one would think. Babies are a lot of work!

I did get a chance to sew yesterday. I make baby blankets for my little one, and I actually got one finished. Only took the entire afternoon. And it is only straight line sewing. Had I been uninterrupted, it would not have taken so long. At least I got it finished. Maybe this means that I can do one a day? We will see. I also have the thought to make some bibs for him, too. He is quite the prolific drooler. (Apparently I have a precocious teether. The drool is incredible. Bibs are a life saver!)

I may go hiking with my mother again today. It is another beautiful day, and the hikes are good for baby and me. I am not sure where we will go. She gets to choose the trail this time.

My mother in law is coming next week, I think. She has been threatening to come down here for a couple months, but kept canceling on us. We are hopeful that next week will be it. Finally. Apparently they rented a car for the trip, so hopefully that means they are committed to actually making the trip. I know she has been anxious to see her grandson. It is difficult for her to make the trip across the state. She has a lot of health problems, and is dependent on others to drive her. Really hoping next week is it.

My parents helped hang things in our nursery. Horton had fallen down, and we had a solar system mobile I wanted to hang. Thanks to my parents the nursery looks finished, finally! Here are a few pics, in case you forgot...

The solar system. And for those astonomy buff out there, it only has 8 planets, so it is correct.


And here is a pic of the Little Dude watching the mobile. He really likes it!


And this is the Horton my sister made for me. I am so glad he is back ib the wall!


Hope everyone has a great day!

Great nursery! I've been wondering whether to hang a mobile for the boys or not, but I hear they really dig them, so I should check it out.

A hike sounds lovely right now! I've got some finish work to do on some baby blankets myself. It is bizarre how long things can take (even straight line sewing...) when there are interruptions.

I would like to argue the inclusion of Pluto as a dwarf moon please. PLUTO: NEVER FORGET :) In all seriousness, what an amazing journey to where you are now. And your nursery is just lovely! What an adorable little man indeed. Happy ICLW!
