Tell me about it! Yikes! I keep meaning to spend some time journalling about these first few weeks with Mielle, but it seems the only time i have time, is when she's nursing and that still takes two hands..... wishing I had a 3rd! She's always flinging her arms around and scratching at her own eyeballs! So my hands are generally to busy to do anything else. And when she's not nursing i have plenty of other things to keep me busy.
Speaking of which, I actually managed to sew 2 diaper covers today!!! they are so cute! So, today we started cloth diapering, I have an order coming in the mail with Kissaluvs and whisper covers. So hopefully by next week we will be well stocked. My mom and i had so much fun sewing diaper covers today, and now that the machine is out and we know what we are doing.... hopefully we will kick out some more in short order.
I also have a pattern for AIO's but haven't taken them on yet. they are quite a bit more involved. The covers are pretty simple. One thing at a time!
The in-laws are coming tomorrow for dinner and i have some housecleaning to do before they get here. I'm gonna try not to take on too much though, they can just deal with my house as it is!
Well. as always, Mielle is starting to fuss downstairs in papa's arms. it's time to feed her, again.
Joy to all, happy labor vibes to all of you eagerly awaiting your little ones. My only labor advice... dive deep and bring your child back to the light. Go mamas go!
