As a new mom, it’s hard to find time for myself. Yes there are naptimes when I can slip in an hour of wonderful sleep, or a shower here and there, and yes I can watch a show on Hulu while picking up the house or feeding Vivian, but there never seems to be much time when I’m not on high alert – checking on the baby so she doesn’t roll into the kitchen, wiping spit-up spots off my shirt, or working on that never changing pile of dishes in the sink, all the while trying to process the million things that I can’t quite get to yet.
I’m not complaining.
Because amongst all of this – buying a house, trying to manage our too-small apartment, playing with my daughter, etc…. I finished a project! And not just one – I have more to show you! **dances in excitement**
For starters though, here is Vivian’s new quilt.
I used our favorite green receiving blanket for the backing, and a thin soft fleece one for the middle – all sweet newborn memories attached. =)
And Vivian *loves* to play on it! I know it won’t be long before she is wrapping her own little “babies” in the quilt as she plays mommy with her dolls….. **melts**
