Around Here

Jayce continues to crack us up every day, as a kid should.  I have told Chris on a few different occasions this past week that I just want to put this version of him in a box  to pull out whenever we need it again later in life.  He’s such a fun mix of being serious, smart, and funny, without really being aware of any of them.  He’s the best medicine.

I had to give him a haircut today, which always bums me out a little bit.

I hate haircut day because he looks so much older immediately afterwards!  He had this Beatles hair thing going on, which I thought was really cute, but it was getting in his eyes, so it needed to be trimmed up.

Sigh.  My much older-looking little guy.

Also, I couldn’t find a good picture of Jayce’s long hair that didn’t give you a glimpse into a big project that I’m working on for the baby, so I’ll just come out with it.

I’m giddy over this little quilt that I’ve been making for the last few weeks.  The last bit of fabric should be in this week, I can’t wait!!

I’ve been receiving the fabric a bit at a time and keep arranging and re-arranging it.

Instead of sewing together the little squares and then using batting in-between the top and bottom layer, you make all of these little pillows, sew those together, and then attach that to the bottom layer.  Actually, there is still batting in there too, but this just makes for a thicker quilt, and since we have mostly hardwood floors in the house I’m excited to have a thick soft quilt for the baby to lay on.

Jayce likes to come into my room and snuggle the little pillows.  He also loves to trample them and mess up the order, but that’s okay. 🙂  He always tells me, “Mom, these tiny little pillows are for my sister.”  So sweet!

  1. Oh, that fabric seriously makes me drool. I have been wanting to make some kind of quilt since I got my machine but have been a little scared to attempt it. Yours looks gorgeous. Can't wait to see the finished product. Love the colors!

  2. what sweet posts from this week! 🙂
    the whole "protect" thing. hold tight to that little guy, it goes by so fast!
    the quilt is going to be perfect for the new little sis! I love the little pillows.
    and oh my gosh, that haircut added months to his age. hahaha
    really, I do see what you mean about it making him look more grown up. He's a cutie that Jayce!
