little by little

Most of my sewing use to be done in the evenings once the girls were in bed, but since having a newborn in the house again, evenings just aren't the best. That seems to be Jude's more unsettled time, and I don't have the energy to stay up as late as I use to. I end up going to bed with him most of the time.

These pajama pants are some I sewed for myself (the night before I went in to labour), but didn't get around to putting elastic in. They now have elastic and are super comfy to wear!

I have a bunch of organic hemp and bamboo fleece sitting in the sewing room waiting to be turned into these fitted nappies. This is my next sewing task, but I can see that they will take forever to make!

And a simple scarf is on my needles. The wool is called 'sorbet' by Moda Vera and is a beautiful merino wool in amazing colours. I am loving the texture!


Thankyou all so much for the hearty congratulations and warm welcomes for little Jude.
We are so grateful for all the kind messages each of you left.

As you can tell, I haven't had much time to spare for blogging. We are too busy surviving and sitting around marveling at the miracle of a new babe.
God truly is amazing.

I have been blessed that Luke is working from home a lot these days.
Means I can have a shower while someone listens out for the baby!
Lots of father and son bonding happening, which is beautiful to see.

The girls think he is just the most beautiful baby ever, and the only disappointment is that he sleeps so much.

I am learning that taking a decent photo of three children at once is much harder than you think. This photo is about as good as it gets.

Surprisingly we are all doing well, and three isn't as big a shock as I imagined it would be. I still think going from none to one child is the hardest adjustment to make.
Jude is just such a darling. I can see that all my sewing and knitting is going to be put on hold for a while, while we enjoy the newborn days of this precious little boy.
