Some Recent Developments
We've been up to lots of this and that around here. Those days where you're not quite sure what you did but your exhausted by the end. Emily hits the ground running every morning and goes strong till nap time then again till bed. Can't complain though bc she lays down and goes right to sleep. She is determined to be with Elijah and doing what he does whenever possible including walking him to school which is great for me bc it means quiet coffee time for Mommy.
I also came up with a great plan to have the living room not always look like a natural disaster had just rolled through. We're paying Elijah 50 cents and evening to pick it up. He used most of his savings to buy himself the stuffed penguin. He's been more into stuffed things and imaginary play lately which I really like. I think it also gives him a great since of accomplishment to save money and get things for himself.
I'm still sewing up a storm. I've been participating in a stash game on sewing mamas where you get points for yardage used, notions, and other things. In general I like the idea but didn't realize this one was going to be a team competition so I'm feeling a bit of pressure to produce. This got me going on some mama sewing though since one advantage of being my size is that it takes a lot of fabric to cover me I've made some tops, 2 skirts, and the pants in the picture. I know its not a great picture but they fit well and have a real zipper fly.
Guess that's it for now.
