The new blog didn’t feel right. I am back in this space. Sorry folks.
P.S. Rex is 14 months old and doing great. Here’s a picture from this morning. He thinks he’s pretty darn cute. (I’m pretty sure I agree…)
Yesterday, I spent the day hanging out with my family at the homestead. My sister and her adorable kids were there.
Izy is getting so big and is growing teeth!
Tyler has a birthday coming up and is ready to lose a tooth!
Friday was also the four week mark for Rex. So when I got home, we snapped some quick four week pictures.
Rex was less than impressed with our photo shoot and protested rather loudly.
But some Mama snuggles made it all better.
Rex is almost a month old and we’re madly in love with him. Here is a short clip of him yawning. Enjoy.
Yes, we’re going to attempt the crazy train of cloth diapering.
Thanks to Liisa, we have lots of cute Bum Genius All-In-Ones. This is the batch of newborn sized ones that will need to be ready sooner rather than later. You have to admit they’re pretty darn cute. Especially all hanging on the (temporary) clothes line.
We’re down to the final 6 weeks! Baby is doing well and we’re having weekly ultrasounds and appointments. As of last week’s scan, he was weighing in at approximately 4lbs 11oz. He should be making his appearance the 2nd week of June. Until then, I’ll work on this project just a bit longer.
Hanging out on a Saturday morning with Chloe and a cup of coffee. Chloe was snuggled against my belly (and Baby Rex), so I snapped a little photo.
My sister-in-law has complained that I’m not posting enough belly pics. So here you go.
It’s been a heckuva couple of a weeks, but things are evening out a little now. I’m not going to go into detail, but things have been pretty stressful. But instead of burdening you with that, I’m going to show you an adorable picture instead. We recently popped up north and visited some friends. They have a beautiful baby boy and we spent lots of time playing Auntie and Uncle. See?
C is chewing on a Sophie Giraffe I got him for his four month birthday. That toy is seriously the best thing I’ve ever seen for teething babies. He was grabbing it and chewing on it and just generally entertaining himself. It squeaks and cleans easily and is easy for little hands to hold on to.
It was great to spend some time relaxing and visiting with friends. I may have come home with a few skeins of yarn (only four!) and a couple new patterns. What can I say? Twisted and Yarnia are both amazing stores and I was feeling weak. Plus, the stash was starting to feel neglected and we can’t have that…
(I did manage to pass up half priced Merino. I’m still regretting that decision…)
Apologies for it going all silent there for a bit. This making a baby thing is kind of time consuming. Just thought I’d let you in on the good news.
There’s been a lot going on around here. We had laminate floors installed and repainted the main area of the house. Tessa (Grandma’s cat) got adopted out to a lovely home and is doing quite well there. My sister had her baby (welcome, Isaac!) and both are doing great. He’s over a month old and is just as cute as can be. And we’re gearing up for the holiday around these parts.
Oh yeah, one more thing…
We’ve got a little project in the works that should make an appearance sometime in mid-to-late June.
