Very Cool Things

June 4, 2009

Today has been one of those more memorable/eventful days. Archer is rolling over like a champion all of the sudden. Yesterday he started attempting rolling from his back to his belly, and today he conquered that feat! He has made diaper changing almost impossible, and he loves it. He also has learned to roll the other way–from belly to back. All this within 24 hours. Amazing!

Another totally wonderful thing was the fact that both of my boys allowed me to get some weeding in the garden done today. I’ve been over a few times to get some gardening done, but it usually ends up with me taking care of the boys instead. Not today! Archer fell asleep and Jackson amused himself with bubbles and digging for snail shells in part of the garden for a good half hour.

More good news! I got my tags in the mail today! So, I will be adding those to the pieces I will be taking to the craft show.

Yay for productive days!


Ode to the blanket

March 18, 2009

Archer was given a beautiful blanket that was hand-made by my wonderful friend Annie. Now that Archer has been around for 5 weeks, (wow) this time has allowed me to fall in love not only with my new son, but this blanket! First of all she could not have picked better colors. And I need to remember to ask her if she was even aware of the sex of our babe when she started this project. Second, the size is perfect. It’s pretty big for a baby blanket, but now that I’ve used it, all the others we have seem too small. Thirdly, it’s soft. I’ve become so fond of this blanket, that I really don’t use any others. (This may change as the weather gets warmer) I wait until it’s had one too many spit ups on it, wash it, and return it to it’s rightful owner–Archer.

Thank you Annie!
