Week-end Musings

I go from posting like a fiend to taking nearly a week off from writing anything.  Such is the life of the mother of an infant.
Related to infants, our little Ju Ju Bee is a big 11 lbs.!  He gained 2 lbs. this month, and is filling out quite nicely.

I've had the urge to post so many things, but not the time or motivation to collect my thoughts into something, well, thoughtful. 

We had a nice weekend, with apple picking and my brother and sister-in-law's baby shower (boy/girl twins...I still can't believe it, though shouldn't be surprised since my Pap-Pap was a twin).  I made them a few things, like some embellished burp cloths and a diaper cake. I love how it turned out, and it was pretty simple to assemble.
I filled it with some Infantino toys, which went well with the ribbon I chose.
We also went on our yearly outing to an apple festival at an organic apple orchard, and even though I went through the trouble of bringing my camera, I forgot to take the memory card out of the computer!! So no pics of that, sadly.  My yearly photo album will be missing those characteristically-autumn shots.

Speaking of autumn, I've started decorating for fall, including lots of pumpkins from the farm market and some salt dough leaves we made with dough that I dyed.
The leaves hang in our kitchen, from the ceiling fan lights.  I wasn't so careful about baking them long enough though, and the backs look a little raw.  Oh well.
One more weekend accomplishment: I did finally get Chris to take some photos of Jude and I in the nursery.
He's been sleeping in his room for weeks now, which I'm so thankful for.  We all get the rest we need as a result.  I don't know why, but I have such trouble co-sleeping with him, even in the same room.  I feel like I respond mentally and sometimes physically to every little utterance from him.
I can't get over how much I love this little guy!  I hate to admit this, but it seems to have come much more naturally with him than Soren, which I attribute to being more relaxed as a parent this time around.
So that's our weekend, now complete.  Give me strength to survive another week with my two boys!


  1. He's just precious, and he really is filling out so nicely! You sure make cutie pie kids.

    I love your salt dough fall touches. You're always so creative. I wish I had a little bit of that in me!

  2. So sweet!

    LOL! I need strength too!

  3. What great pictures of you and Jude :)

    And it sounds like you all are having a wonderful time with Fall around the corner-It's unfortunate you forgot the memory card (I can't tell you how many times I've done that myself), but I'm sure you'll remember it just the same :)

  4. You did a super job on the diaper cake. The little one is adorable. Of course, so is Soren.

  5. Glad to hear things are easier/smoother this time around. I remember talking with you about it before you gave birth.


I'm a good listener...comment away!
