two months old already!
Oh, and read books to my toddler. Color with my kindergartener. Laugh, bake, sing with the older Monkeys. Watch them play. I wish I this was all I had to do all day.
There once was a time when these simple pursuits weren't fun enough, precious enough. I resented the interruptions, the demands, the chaos. I took them all for granted, and time flew by... way too fast.
I know better now.
Anyway. . . .
Breastfeeding is going very well! Donovan nurses like a champ. Unfortunately, he also has silent reflux, so no peaceful nights (or even days) for us yet. This little elevated "nest" I made for him seems to help a bit:
He nurses frequently, like every 2 hours or so, due to the reflux. (I've had to nurse him twice while trying to write this short post! My one-handed typing skills stink....) Since I haven't attempted one-handed embroidery or sewing yet (nor am I likely to do so!) there isn't much to share on the creative front. Sure, I've sewn some dryer sachets and some cat toys for my customers in 10-minute spurts, but that's about it. Well, I am attempting to crochet a Christmas hat for Donovan. . .
. . . but I have no idea what I'm doing, so we'll see if it ends up as a hat or a pot holder. And if it gets completed before he's out of diapers. Meanwhile, I'll keep in mind that this too shall pass... and a maybe a little too quickly.
