My hands have been full

My hands have been full with this little guy! Although I suspect that he knows when I'm trying to blog and decides right there and right then he needs to be nursed, have a diaper change or takes a nap and I can't access my computer. :P

On Tuesday I went into my sewing room, dug up the acrylic paint and painted "100% Breastmilk" onto a plain white onesie. Tuesday is also the day I ditched my maternity clothes and put on my "fat pants". Today I'm wearing some normal and more snug capris! I'm absolutely thrilled how the weight is melting off of me right now.

Caleb did pull out the full stops on Monday, and managed to poop and pee on a quilt when I was trying to change him. And this is despite having a cloth diaper under his butt for "extra" protection. What can I do, but just laugh? ;)

One thing that surprises me is how we're using my quilts so much more. Lay one on the floor, put one at the changing station, have one next the recliner like above, toss another one on the couch. Gotta make more quilts... someday. :)

Look at his hair! So very cute!

I know you probably have a hankering to get to the sewing machine, but make sure you get rest for yourself and enjoy this time!

What a beautiful blessing. Glad to hear things went well. Andrew is now 2 and started talking up a storm. Enjoy each moment. They go by so fast. He is so handsome. Congrats to you and your hubby.

Oh and Andrew went potty on quite a few quilts also. LOL.

You both look georgous!

We had a lot of "messes" when my kids were little too. It all comes out in the wash!
