Gosh, getting this September Currents blog post just in under the wire. Can't believe it's almost October. October might be my favorite month. The start of the weather starting to cool down in Miami and the excitement about the holidays coming up (yes, I said it. Holidays!) Here's what we've been up to:
Watching VEEP. I thought this was going to have a lot more slap stick type humor, but it doesn't and I love it.
Wanting to take the paddle board out to the beach. We went this month without it and it was so much fun. It was Dylan's first time in the sand. He's a really cautious kid so I thought he'd hate it but he got right in there with Alice building/destroying sand castles.
Making an Uber Eats order for sushi tonight. Momma needs a break from cooking for the toddlers who only eat carbs and white things even though they were exposed to many vegetables as babies.
Sewing a Llama traditional flying geese quilt. Using lots of pinks and greens, cottons and linens, and a beautiful woven cotton in a deep, dark yellow for the binding.
Reading a little bit of How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen at a time.
Loving Dylan's mobility. He's crawling around, walking with the assistance of a walker, and cruising the furniture. He's having so much fun and I love watching how happy he is to finally reach his toys on his own.
Feeling drained and excited. Pandemic life gets a bit monotonous but grateful for our many blessings and space and a partner who tries so hard. Really excited about planning some more beach trips before the weather gets too cold to get in the water.
Thinking I should probably put away the groceries now.
**A quick couple of reminders: (1) custom orders are open for the holidays. It does take about 6-8 weeks to make a quilt, so might want to start thinking about what kind of modern baby quilt works for your family. Feel free to email me: email@example.com; and (2) October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, please take 15% off the whole rainbows & stars collection (Pink Rainbow Babies Bib Set, Stellar Rainbow Babies Bib Set, Golden Babies Bib Set, all the quilts, and quilted pillow covers- check here and here for some rainbow quilt and pillow ideas). Just use Rainbow15 at check out starting October 1.
Sending big, virtual hugs as always. Xoxo.
