Ok, just wanted to let you all know I will hopefully post again more often come May. It has just been busy here, or in the evening I am just to tired to think about blogging. I have had thoughts I wanted to blog about, but by evening I can’t think anymore.
About our new baby, I heard the heartbeat at my last midwife appointment! Such a wonderful and special sound!!! As of today, we are in week 16 & day 4. I have been feeling much better the past couple of weeks, still tired come evening, but at least the sickness is gone.
I thought I would just share a couple pictures of some of things I have been doing.
First here is one of Baby helping mommy. He has discovered that the dishwasher door makes a wonderful stool! I have since taught him to use a proper stool, but if he can’t see it, down comes the dishwasher door. Here he is helping me make a salad.
I have also been using whatever free time I have for sewing. My girls need dresses for summer, especially our oldest daughter. So here are four dresses, two for each daughter. I also have since sewen up a skirt for each girl and today I finished sewing up a jumper for myself.
One afternoon, the girls and I had a cookie making afternoon. S. bake a batch by herself and R. helped me make the spritz cookies and I also then made some oatmeal raisin cookies. It was good to see the cookie jars filled again. 🙂 One thing about baking or doing anything in the kitchen with the girls, I find it can be a meek and quiet spirit robber. 😦 This likes to happen when all the children are trying to help! Anyway, it is something, I don’t want to have. I want my girls (and boys when they are older) to have happy memories of baking in the kitchen with mommy.
I was also blessed to be given a book called " Welcome Home, Daddy" by Lorrie Flem. I have been so blessed and I hope to share more about it later.
