Just some stuff I’ve been up to lately:

Writing this post for oliofolio. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, and it tied in nicely with this week’s theme. Check it out and let me know what you think and feel free to share your own fears/worst nightmares that come with the parental territory.

Making a nursing cover. It seems like it wasn’t until Simon was practically weaned that I started seeing these around and I became quite jealous but didn’t have the time to make one back then. But now I do, so I did it. I used a tutorial from here. Micah helped me pick the fabric. And I love the tiger flannel in the corners to use as pockets (for nursing pads or whatever) as well as a to wipe the baby’s mouth with.And finally, I got my haircut again. Last week was haircutting week at our house. I cut Simon’s hair on Tuesday, Micah’s hair on Wednesday, and then a friend came over on Thursday and cut mine. I’ve given it a week and decided it is the best thing ever. The end.

  1. Great job on the nursing cover and cute hair!!! And I can't wait to read your piece! You and I share so many common interests it's really a wonder we don't hang out everyday.

  2. Amen Stephanie. Biggest regret from Hawaii = not spending more time with Stephanie Robertson. Sigh. Maybe we'll be back someday.

  3. Your hair looks great, how fun to have it so short! I've been thinking about chopping mine, too. The nursing cover looks awesome, too – I wish I could make stuff like that!

    Excellent article on Oliofolio. I can totally relate, too – recently my big fear has been of Samuel drowning. I think I've had at least three dreams in the last week or so about him falling into water… Big, deep breaths…

  4. I like the haircut. For some reason I always hate my haircuts until I've had them for about a week. I guess you just have to get used to it.

  5. Your nursing cover is awesome. Do you guys have a sewing machine? That's probably a ridiculous question, but I had to ask. Ü And I LOVE your hair! Jess has been regretting her hair cut- it's shoulder length- and I think it's adorable!

  6. P.S. I just read your article and you are an amazing writer, in case you didn't know! Ü I have nightmarish thoughts about Simon, and something horrible happening to him. I can't imagine what a wreck I'll be with my own kids… Anyway, just wanted you to know that your article was beautifully written and so real!

  7. Love your hair cut, it goes really well with your pretty wavy hair and face shape. The nursing cover is so pretty!
