Two random projects I've done recently: repurposing flip flops from this tutorial, and a watercolor doodle.
L told me last night that he had seen two redheaded children in a local restaurant lately...one girl and one boy. She was older than her brother, and it made L think about Lyra and Simon.
It was Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S. this past weekend, and we got together with L's family. All the cousin's were together. Sort of. I didn't have to say it out loud, or make a big point of it. I suppose that could be an added segment for myself in the "Where I'm At" project. That exact weekend last year I wondered if I was pregnant with my rainbow baby. This year I was unbelievably blessed to have Simon here with us...meeting his other cousins and getting used to the all commotion that he'll soon be adding to.
Four months old. My little baby boy is four months old already... and not so little. He's almost 17lbs, and 28in long. He grew an inch in two weeks time from our last trip to the dr. for a cold!!
He doesn't sit up without help yet, and he still hates tummy time. But he's discovered his hands and starting to notice his feet more. He reaches for things and grasps them better, and giggles the sweetest giggles. His hair is staying red at the moment, and his eyes are still blue. Oh, and he hates his car seat more than anything in the world. He used to get in the car and fall asleep, but now he wails for a bit before nodding off from exhaustion...I always feel bad, but living in the middle of nowhere, we have to drive to reach a bigger grocery store and such.
We're all learning together, and enjoying the process for the meantime :)
