back in the swing of things

IMG_8566 Hi there!

I'm typing in my PJ's at 9 am hoping to crawl back in bed and actually sleep but knowing that I won't ever really get any today:)

And that's OK. Cause this little guy is so worth it. Babymoon is over, and he's awake more, and trying to get used to this body of his, and most of that "figuring out" for him happens in the wee hours in the morning. It's a party. Put aside the fact that I'm functioning on no sleep, it really is magical...those quiet moments at night with only the two of us awake. I'm not saying I'd choose this over sleep, but for what I have to stay up for, it is kinda magical.  I mean just look at this guy! I get him all to myself.

So far, the transition between 3 and 4 kids has been rather seamless. Three kids was a huge adjustment for me. All the sudden, there were more kids than adults. That was a trip. Like, not enough laps, not enough arms.... But I think after 3, it's just crazy all together, so nothing really phases me any more. I'm feeling like a seasoned parent I think. It makes me sound old, but it really is true. My first two babies were super fussy and colicky, and Anders is starting to fall into that category. Not 100% yet, but he's definitely needing extra TLC. And for my first two, I was thrown into a whirlwind over it. This time, I've been so calm and easy going about it all. Funny how much energy goes into worrying at being a first time mom. This time around we're smooth sailing.


I hope you don't mind all these pictures. He's only little once, and I can't get over how much he's changed just in these past 3 weeks! And now that we are over the recovery stage, I'm finding myself so ready to get back into being here on the blog more, sharing what's going on, etc. Things are still happening! Like, Quilt Market in 2 months (new fabric anyone??) and new patterns and art. And lots of really exciting collaborations and projects. I've not been super active here on the blog, but I have a feeling I'll be here more. With how much is going on in the studio, as well as how much more creativity it back in my brain now that I'm not pregnant any more. Anyone else get like that? Super dry and non-creative during pregnancy? It's like all my creativity went to making a baby. And now that he's out, I'm back to my old self again. It's good to be back.
