9 months in the making

Believe it or not, I can actually do a small June round-up. Although I haven’t had a chance to take pictures yet, for the most part.

So this month, I…

  • Finished all of the hand-sewing on the second quiet book, thanks to a week where I literally had nothing left to do except hang out at my parents’ while Doug was at work and wait to see if I’d go into labor. All that needs to be done is to sew the finished pages back-to-back with the machine, and assemble the book.
  • Finished knitting a scarf from a Craftsy class that I started last year sometime. And I have quite a bit of the second ball of yarn left, but I do have an idea for a project to use it on. Just need the time.
  • Did not use up any of my fabric stash. But I did order 7 yards, because Fabric.com suckered me in with geeky novelty prints.
  • Got the scrapbook that I’ve been working on almost completely done, minus a few pictures that just got ordered. (Since I got married, I’ve been doing one per year, running from June to May in order to coincide with our anniversary. I seriously love the pocket-style scrapbooking, it makes it so much easier to keep up!) I even managed to finish up some older unfinished album pages, too!

Oh yeah…and I finished this project.

He was born on June 22 (a week and a day past his due date), 20 3/4″ long and 8 pounds 10 ounces. He’s 10 days old now, and though it’s been pretty exhausting, it’s been fun getting to know this little guy, too. He’s usually pretty happy, except when he has to get a bath or I take too long in getting ready to feed him.

Of course, when I do feed him, then he looks more like this:

Speaking of feeding, he’s ready for that again. Hobbit was a very accurate nickname.
Back later…

  1. He is so adorable!!! What a sweetie! Congratulations! But oh, why did you have to bring up scrapbooking? You've reminded me that somewhere buried in the rubble of my apartment lies a scrapbook with basically nothing in it… and we've been married for 9 years and together for 14! Terrible! Well done for keeping up with it!


  2. Thank you! So far, he only wakes up 2-3 times a night, and he has gone for some surprisingly long stretches. So hopefully getting him to sleep through the night won't be an issue, once he doesn't need to be fed so frequently.


  3. Thanks! I haven't been able to get a lot of sleep myself, since I just can't nap in the daytime hours no matter how I try, but my husband has been great about taking over when he can so I can get a little extra sleep.


  4. Thanks! And hey, if it makes you feel any better, I have a whole stack of half-finished pages and photos dating all the way back to 2007 or so. I'm really only keeping up with the last 2 years since I got married, and it's only thanks to those pocket page protectors!
