Keeping Busy!

I'm having fun and keeping busy with my two little ones! It can get a little crazy every once in a while, but overall the adjustment has been easier than I thought it would be! Benjamin has been having trouble sleeping the past couple of weeks, which has been the hardest thing to deal with, since it makes him fussier than usual. Getting out and about is a little harder than it used to be, too, which is why we've been home most of the time! =) But I've been plenty busy keeping up on things around the house and enjoying my precious kids!

Benjamin's Books

Benjamin loves books! And they're one of my favorite "toys" for kids, so I'm glad he loves them! When I first started letting him look at them on his own, probably around 9 months, he would chew on them, but then he stopped. Unfortunately, he's started chewing on them again, which has led to some not-so-nice-looking books. I've been taping them as they've been damaged - mostly on the bindings. The other day, though, I got an idea - why not tape them before they get damaged? So I've started putting clear packaging tape over the bindings of all his books, with the hope that when he chews on them, the tape will prevent most of the damage! Hopefully, though, the chewing will stop for good soon!

More Baby Shoes!

I loved the way my first pair of cloth baby shoes turned out, so I decided to make another pair! This pair went together more quickly that the first, since I was familiar with what to do. I made a black pair that could be either for a boy or a girl - if it's a girl, I'll probably add little black ribbon bows to the shoes.

Ready and Waiting

Two weeks to go but we're ready!
We have the baby things washed, the freezer full of meals, and the bags (mostly) packed.
Now the waiting really begins! =)
