Where to even begin? It is hard to just jump in with a subject when you've let your blogging slide so much! Here are just a few of the things that have been going on around here lately...
|Wyatt is absolutely in love with this teacher!|
Wyatt graduated preschool last week and is incredibly excited to start kindergarten this fall. Just about every day he tells Carson about what he should expect in preschool next year, and how Wyatt will be going to "real" school in August, but Carson can't start preschool until September. Wyatt also has his first real baseball game tonight, but sadly I won't be there to watch him play in the outfield dirt.
This little guy looks pretty cute, right? Well, for the last three or four days he has been battling some kind of nasty virus so we are staying home tonight so we don't infect the rest of the kids in town at the ballpark. He was devastated! But luckily his T-ball game was cancelled anyway, so he's only missing out on watching Wyatt play.
But one thing has brightened his spirits...
Last Friday we got our new playground delivered and the kids have been having a blast, though I'm seriously thinking about starting a pool as to when we have our first visit to the ER.
Not a whole lot has been going on at the sewing machine, but here are a few tidbits...
I've made several receiving blankets out of white gauze for the new baby. Super simple, just cut it to size and serged the edges. Since she'll be born in August I think this gauze will make a nice swaddling blanket, as opposed to the flannel ones we used with our winter-born boys. But I can't just leave them
white, can I?
I have a few other colors to try, but these are the two I'm using today. I'm also throwing a little onesie in each of the dye baths to liven up her wardrobe a bit.
And not to forget little Max, he is getting some new pj pants, using the Big Butt Baby pattern from
Made by Rae. I like using this pattern for babies since it gives a little extra room for diapers than regular pants patterns.
After I cut out these two pairs, I realized I was cutting a size too big, so I cut out a few more in a smaller size, though both look way too big for him right now. Oh well, they are fairly easy to make!
