Been a Busy Mommy

G had his 4 month check-up yesterday (he's a little over 4 months but I didn't want him to get vaccinations while he had a cold). He's 15 pounds 9 ounces, over a pound heavier than Ella was at 4 months. He cried getting his shots, not even nursing during them helped much this time, but after a few minutes he was back to smiling at me. They've had a lasting effect into today however.. low-grade fever and generally cranky and miserable. Sometimes I question my decision to vaccinate on schedule in the early months (I only delay MMR and Varicella later on). It just seems like a lot for a tiny little baby to handle... maybe my decision will change for the next baby.

Project-wise, I've been busy finishing up a gift for my friend's baby shower (can't share those pics until after the fact!), making some crib sheets and I'm about to make a sheet set for my daughter's toddler bed. The toddler bed uses a crib mattress, so it's hard to find cute sheets for it... crib sets don't come with pillowcases and a top sheet (generally).

Here's the tutorial I used for the fitted sheets... it couldn't be easier and you have so many adorable prints to choose from!

Chillin' on his new flannel sheet...

Made some matching teething toys from the corner scraps and stuffed them with my bits of scrap fabric I can never bring myself to throw out...


  1. I can't seem to throw out scrap fabric either...I should make some toys too! LOL!

  2. OMFSM. This is perfect. I can't wait to try. :)
