First days of August Wrap Up

Besides going to Omaha for a few days, we have been busy at home...

I finished another quilt top (MUCH less involved then the last one) that is just for us to use during the winter months on our couch.  Because of that, it'll have a minky back...I can't wait to use it!  I'll post more info when it comes back from the quilters and I bind it.

Timothy discovered that he rather enjoyed sitting in the "hole" as he called it.

Timothy has a big boy bed now!  It took all of 5 minutes for Jared to pop the side off of the crib and attach the bottom rail, so if we need to we can switch back.  So far, so good.  :)

Tigger is still Tigger, just so you know.  She wasn't very happy with Jared for taking her picture...but she isn't the happiest cat on the block either.

We rearranged Timothy's room last week and he has been really enjoying a lot of independent play, especially with the vehicles.  

Next big boy challenge?  Potty training.  But not for awhile.  With a trip planned to Michigan at the end of September, we are going to wait until we get back before we really hit that one.  He has been telling us for awhile now when he wets his diaper, so we will start working on recognizing the need to go before it happens.  It could get interesting around our house.  

Big boy bed success!

See the bandaid on his foot?  He got his first bee sting on Saturday.  :(  He was out in the backyard with me and we were both shoeless and he stepped on one.  He was so sad, but a trooper!  We got the stinger out and everything washed, iced, and a bandaid slapped on and lots of kisses without any screaming.  Thankfully he didn't have any sort of a reaction other than a mosquito bite sized bump.  We still need to walk around barefooted in the grass as part of his therapy (it is good for his sensory issues), but next time we will make sure to avoid the mostly clover part of the lawn back by the garden.

No adoption news, please keep us in your prayers!


  1. the quilt is so pretty! i need to get back into quilting. and sewing in general. love the crib side rail--good idea! cheaper than a new bed. :)

    1. Thanks Gina! And amen for the adjustable was given to us when we were going to need two cribs and we are so thankful! We are going to keep our eyes peeled for bunk beds over the next year or two so we will have room for siblings or visiting cousins!

  2. Ohhhh, where's the pattern for this one? I love it!

    1. I found it at layer cake and I bought 2 yards of brown for the corners and binding. When I have it back, I'll show you a little bit more about the bonus pieces you get from it and can make a second project. :)
