We had a very lazy ‘Easter’ weekend where in our true fashion we did nothing to recognize the religious but did plenty to celebrate the non-religious.
Syd woke up that AM to a mess of jelly beans left by the ‘messy bunny’ as she liked to refer to him, and a basket full of treats and trinkets courtesy of us, Grandma Bullock and Auntie-M.
She had fun going through it all but focused straight on the candy and the paper grass in the basket which she promptly scattered all over the living room and kitchen.
It was a lazy day followed by an early Easter dinner and egg hunt hosted by my friend Ashley. This year Syd ‘got’ the egg hunting thing and had a good time looking for eggs and then going through her loot.
I made the blouse you see her wearing for the egg hunt. I didn’t have enough of the main fabric (October Afternoon, Fly a Kite in Teal by Riley Blake) so I did a blouse from the Ice Cream Dress pattern instead of the dress. It turned out OK, but I prefer the look of the dress I made her from this pattern over the blouse. It went together easily enough though, didn’t take me any time at all to whip up.
I was able to get quite a bit of sewing done this weekend even though Royce worked the afternoon shifts so I almost feel ‘ready’ for baby. Actually outside of a couple of softies for baby’s crib I’m completely done with the girls’ room sewing…including the glider cover which was much easier to sew than I had imagined. Next up is getting some pictures on the wall!
I have about 5-weeks left and it’s starting to feel like it too. I’m more tired thanks to multiple night waking to pee and pain in my hips from lying on my side. Although I’m still smaller and weigh less than I did at this point with Sydney I’m still feeling just as uncomfortable. You can tell my physical limitations by the perspective of the recently posted photos! Mama can’t get down to Syd’s level easily anymore so sadly everything was shot from my standing viewpoint. I’m also having quite a bit of Braxton Hicks contractions which I don’t remember having with Sydney…maybe I just didn’t know what to expect though given that was my first pregnancy. They don’t stop with rest or sitting but they did ease last night with a glass of wine…go figure.
