Another Builder

Jack is really into his blocks at the moment. Maybe we will have another builder in the family. He was building the other night and this was what he came up with. Sorry about the terrible pics.

2 Months Today

Since Charlie was born. Can't believe how quickly time flies. I thought I should update with some pics so everyone can see how he is growing and changing which happens so fast at this stage.
He is a good wee boy who sleeps and feeds well. We are in a pretty good routine at the moment. he sleeps pretty much through the night from 9pm to 5:30 am - just need to drop the 5:30am feed :-)
Jack is a great big brother and he loves Charlie and playing with him.
He is weighing just on 5kg although should be about 5.4kg so we will be checking in with Plunket for a weigh in on the 30th July as he had dropped from the 50th percentile to the 15th at his last visit. Hopefully he is back up where he should be, otherwise we will be starting to supplement with formula - providing I can get him to take a bottle. He has taken the bottle once - but I think it was a fluke as he just rejects it normally - even though most of the time it's expressed milk.

Thrifty Thursday

I know it's not Thursday. But last Thursday I made a trip to the op shop looking for clothes for Charlie as we were short of long sleeve tops. Anyway I didn't find any long sleeve tops - but I did find this Freedom furniture curtain for $5. Unfortunately there was only one. We have a construction theme in Jack's room so I figured I could use it in there. Now I have to make decisions about what to do with it. I was thinking that I could re cover his toy box with the embroidered bit, or I could make a sheet to go with his new quilt that is still in progress at the moment, so what do I do - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh and here is a pic of the quilt - I am making progress slowly. I am up to quilting which is taking a while as I am doing free motion quilting around all the vehicles.
