She's growing so fast!

Thought I would share some recent pictures of my now 2month old baby girl. She doesn't look like a newborn anymore : ( Her eyelashes are growing in and her little body is plumping up. And YAY! She likes her morning bath now! I am so glad because I hated having to bathe a hysterical baby, made me feel like I was torturing her. Now we just need to work on getting her to take her naps in her bed and not in someone's arms lol She does great at night. Well, I mean, she still wakes up at least twice to eat, but when she is done, she easily goes back down in her cradle. However, during the day, she could be in a deep sleep, but try to put her down and those eyes pop right open lol I wouldn't get anything done if it weren't for my sling and my 3 older daughters!

As for sewing, things are *really* slow. I have done some though, so I'm not lying with my sew something in November banner. Almost finished with two appliqued pillows for a special girlfriend's birthday. Will share soon. I used fusible applique with a blanket stitch and really enjoyed it. I see lots more of this technique in my future. I keep telling myself that I am gonna stay up at night after Sophia goes to sleep and get lots of sewing done, but end up going to bed myself. Still tired from those middle of the night feedings.

Hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving. We had my brother and his family in and it was a nice time spent with family and eating lots of good food. All of the cousins had a blast, they always do : )

Ava still adores her baby sister, no jealousy at all, thank God! I think they will be best friends one day, the two babies of the family. Can you say spoiled! LOL
