mum and me
My mom is coming for a visit today, and I'm really looking forward to it! She's here for 2 weeks, and is spending the first week with us, and next week with my sister. It will be a little crowded in our apartment, but I don't mind. She raised 5 kids, and I think she will have a lot of good advice and help to give us.
Things have been a little difficult for the last week, and I welcome anything that might help. I'm not sure if it's really colic, or him just reacting badly to something I'm eating (premature babies don't have very good digestive systems, it seems). It's so hard to watch him being upset and uncomfortable every evening, besides being exhausting for both of us. Anyway, it means no dairy or soy for me for a while, and I will miss the dairy so much! Soy I can live without, although I'm not sure what to put on my morning cereal. But I have daydreams about cold glasses of milk, creamy chunky of brie, and yummy yogurt with fruit... oh well.
In Fuzzy Mitten news, I will be releasing the Baby Penguin pattern on February 1. I think I will also be reopening my Etsy shop then, since we should be able to find enough time in each day to deal with the small number of sales I have there. Also, I will probably release the Mama and Baby Bunny pattern on March 1 (I plan to combine them into one pattern). I have no idea when I'll have time to make more kits, or take orders for custom toys, though. I'm enjoying having lots of time to spend with Lev, and I don't want to commit myself to a bunch of work too soon.
