Yeah, motherhood consumes me. I'm wrapped up in my baby girl and have little time for anything else. She likes chewing on everything, including my favorite tape measure. I've had it out a few times, taking measurements for batting for a baby quilt I've nearly finished.
Elsa is amazing. Being a mother is the best gift. First, just having a relationship with your child is incredible. And then learning to see the world through her eyes is a delicious, delightful joy. She's almost walking. She crawls like nobody's business and can quickly leave the room if she's not closely watched and followed. She'll be walking by herself any day. She pulls up like a champ; has been doing that for weeks now. She has four teeth. Her top two came in about two weeks ago. They're growing like gangbusters. Her rate of growth astonishes me. Simply astonishing.
These photos were taken in May, when she was six months old. She's nearly nine months, now. Her hair is slowly filling in. I suppose she's like me in that respect, I didn't have much hair until I was a year old.
Hope to have something exciting and crafty to share soon. My work with fun sock monkey fabric is almost complete. I'm ready to move on to something else more sedate because it's been like working with a barrel of monkeys.
