Thoughts & Happenings 12/20/16

living lighter thoughts

Only five more sleeps ’til Christmas! ^_^ I’m almost done wrapping presents and now I just need to grocery shop tomorrow and I will feel ready.

I’ve been sewing a lot for the last several days. Adding Velcro to the cloth diapers that I had still been using diaper pins with, sewing my own inserts with soft washcloths I had been folding until now, and adding snaps to Joshua’s coat. I also bought some white t-shirts and cute pajama pants at the thrift store the other day and I will be making cloth wipes with them, but so far I’ve just cut squares and pinned them together. I seriously love sewing. With the machine, by hand, doesn’t matter – I just love creating things with fabric, buttons, zippers, thread…. ^_^

Elizabeth is doing well with food, but it’s been interesting. One day she likes pears, the next she shivers and turns away from them. And she does NOT like bananas, lol. :P At Cracker Barrel the other night, I was having pot roast and mashed potatoes and she was in my arms squirming and reaching for the table and my food. So I offered her a tiny bit of potatoes and she loved them! The squirming stopped entirely and she was happy as could be after having (tiny) bite after bite of them. Then yesterday, I offered her rice cereal with expressed milk and sweet potatoes and again, very happily ate and ate; it measured a ¼ cup and she had it all. :) TMI, this morning’s poop was very pasty and it was evident that she’d had solids the day before.

Well, I’m finally back on Pinterest. When I first signed up five years ago, I was a pin hoarder and it bothered me. I had WAY too many boards and pins and I rarely did any of them. Recipes, exercise routine, crafts, sewing projects, etc. So, a long time ago (maybe two years now?) I deleted my account and left Pinterest alone completely. Then, during my pregnancy I wanted to look at baby sewing ideas and cloth pads so I signed back up. Since then, I’d maybe gotten on five or six times but recently I decided I’d like to use it again, especially for recipes and baby/kid/life hacks. And I LOVE the new (to me) feature of “tried it” and “loved it/not for me”! So, anyway, if you want to find me on Pinterest, here I am.

I guess that’s it! Baby girl is napping and I have a never-ending pile of laundry to get working on, lol.

Merry Christmas!

  1. Your little girl is beautiful! And welcome back to pinterest. Enjoy this amazing time with your kids, the time goes so fast (as I am sure everyone has already lamented to you!) My kids are home, sort of. One working Christmas eve day and the other all day on Christmas. We have about 5 hours together on the 24th, so tough to gather them at the same time and I only have two! Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you! ^_^ It does go so fast, doesn’t it? :( My first couple of jobs were places that were open every day because they dealt with movies (first, a theater and then a rental store) so I’ve worked Christmas, New Years, Easter…I hope you have a lovely holiday with what time everyone is home! XO

    1. Thanks! ^_^ I found the dress a few months ago and thought it would surely fit her well in December as it is size 9months, but I had to squuuueeeezzzzee her into it, lol! She only wore it for this one photo shoot a few weeks ago. :P And she is a very smiley, happy little one!
