oops! it has been a month since last post. I wasn't meaning for time to slip away from me so quickly. I have thought to myself many many times over the last month that I have to do a post but then I have always followed that thought up with a reply something along the lines of "later".
The truth is, that I have just been feeling overwhelmed with everything and when I have had the time to sit down and blog, I just haven't felt like doing it. I've felt like sitting on the couch like a blob instead.
We have a temporary boarder living with us, and he is cool to live with, but it just means I have all this extra cleaning up to do and because he is in Beatrice's room, I now have nowhere to put her stuff and so I am constantly going in circles trying to find all her stuff. Getting up in the mornings and getting her fed, bathed and dressed is just such hard work and takes me twice as long as what it used to take me.
Plus, Beatrice has been doing all this growing up! In the last month, she has cut her first two teeth, learned how to crawl commando style and she has figured out there are other rooms in the house and she doesn't just have to stay in the loungeroom, so I have had to put the baby gate up between the dining room and kitchen. She has also learned how to clap and say "dad" and she can sit up as well. She has also decided that she doesn't have to sleep or nap. She refuses to sleep in her cot since we had to move her out of her room and she insists on sleeping with us. Such a big month!
Anyway, I can hear her whinging from the bedroom, so I'll wrap this up. I will endeavour to post more regularly again. And dusty, did you get your little dress yet? I posted it a few weeks back. I am really looking forward to seeing a photo of it or hearing your feedback about it. Even if it is negative feedback, so that I can change the pattern or scrap it all together.
I think I would like to make a little girl's poncho out of puffs next. What do you think? I have also decided that I am going to have a suffolk puff wedding dress and corsages for the bridesmaids using puffs and button holes for the men...that is, when steve decides to propose and all!
