Sophia,sewing and almost 40

A couple of weeks ago, I had lunch at my photographer friend Jessica's house and she took some pics of Sophia. Thought I would share. She keeps changing so much. She is rolling all over the place and gets up on her hands and knees and rocks. It is so cute to watch her get up, rock and then launch herself at whatever toy she is trying to get at LOL My other babies didn't crawl until almost 8 months, I am wondering if she will be earlier. So far, she is my happiest baby, but also my worst sleeper. She STILL wakes up 3 or 4 times to nurse. The little fatty weighs over 18 lbs and this is on breastmilk alone! Oh well, I am eating like a pig and still lost 5 lbs., so i guess there is some benefit to being a human milk machine LOL

I have been sewing more and more lately and it feels SO GOOD. I ordered some fabric from Jona at Fabritopia last week and got some of Anna Maria Horner's new little folks . That voile is to die for! I will definitely be ordering more. It is perfect for summer clothing down here in hot and humid South Louisiana. Also, I finally basted my Mom's quilt and have started the quilting. I am waiting on the Quilt Halo I ordered to get here. I am hoping this helps with my arm strain. My right arm aches horribly after 30 minutes of quilting. I love feeling so inspired again, it has been awhile and it feels good to be feeling more like myself.

I will be turning 39 at the end of this month. My last year in my 30's! This is really bothering me. I didn't mind turning 30, kinda liked it, made me finally feel like an adult, but 40 sucks! That is middle age!!!!! Oh well, i just need to appreciate the fact that I am still alive, not turning 40 would suck more LOLOLOL
