Ryan got the whale for me and the turtle for Ulysses as a celebration of his birth. I just love them. We saw them hanging at a restaurant the night before the babe was born and he arranged to have them dropped off shortly after we got home from the hospital. The turtle hangs in Uly’s room and the whale is in the living room, although I feel like I need to find a better home for him than his spot on the wall now.
I’ve been very busy taking care of this babe and have not had much time to work on projects; frankly, I was expecting to have more. He slept so much for the first few weeks, but we had company over during that time. Now that it’s just me and him, he’s wide awake, being fussy, or staying up most of the night–or all of these. I did manage to make a nursing cover, which was the simplest project ever. I took a yard of fabric, ironed and hemmed the edges, and added a tie to go around my neck. I looked into purchasing one, but they were all around $30 and I couldn’t bring myself to pay for something that would use up my stash and take me 15 minutes to make–although it was days in the making trying to find those minutes.
We’ve had glorious weather and the boy does like our outings, so we’ve been out and around the town enjoying the weather. I hope it keeps up!
