The baby is 14-weeks yesterday. Can you believe that, I can't! Everyday I'm more in love with her as well as her dad and brothers. She's so super cute I can hardly stand it. Her eyes are still blue if not bluer since the day she was born. She is at the beginning stages of teething and her drooling is outta control. I hate bibs yet she has to wear them every single day or else her outfits are soaked within minutes.
I have a handful of friends all having babies. one had her baby about 1.5 week ago, she will be one of Crash's (baby's nickname) besties, for sure. Another buddy is having her baby in mere days and another in about a 3 weeks. Whew!
I've been sewing quite a bit lately. It's been so therapeutic for me. I've been able to loose myself in the creativity. As a result friends are gettin' goodies and Crash is racking up quite the wardrobe. I've missed sewing so much. I think nearly the entire time I lived in LA my sewing machine remained in storage. My life was just go, go, go that I never really had the chance to get the sewing machine out and relax.
Since I've been on maternity leave I've had time to explore the city more and have been really enjoying it. The city is so beautiful. Right now the cherry blossoms are in bloom and things are really looking magnificent. I can't wait for the heart of spring and all the leaves and flowers to comeback. It's going to be amazing. I do get a bit misty when I see my pals pictures in LA but I know I made the right choice.
We bought a BBQ soon after moving here and finally got it out last weekend and set it up on the deck. I bought some steaks today so hopefully we'll be out there grilling this weekend and have some friends over to enjoy with us.
My weeks are dwindling down and the thought of work is locked up in the back of my mind. Out of sight, out of mind. I'm going to soak up these last weeks and enjoy every minute with my baby.
Once all the pieces of my life are back to being regimented i'll be around more often, i promise.
