He: 

>Still has the bump on his head from his vacuum-assisted birth attempt. I’m wondering if it’ll ever go away at this point.

>Was in the 95th percentile for weight at his last checkup.

>Dropped a bottle per day in favor of baby food.

>Is eating mostly jarred baby food, when he eats solids, since we had a bunch given to us and that’s what they have at daycare.

>Has no teeth, and doesn’t seem to be actively teething yet.

>Is in an awkward stage for bathing where he doesn’t fit his infant tub but he’s not stable enough to go in the big tub with Meredith.

>Still sucks his thumb often, and likes to have something else in his fist at the same time, like my hair or David’s headphones.

>Is Meredith’s best friend (according to her).

I:

>Am up  to at least two cups of coffee a day.

>Have completed two weeks of half marathon training and think my hospital employee gym is the best thing ever. It’s totally free for us, the equipment is really nice, and there is a weekly yoga class at the perfect time for me.

>Do look forward to some cooler weather so I can start running outside again, though.

>Just finished my epic summer novel and am moving on to some YA.

>Went to my first quilt guild meeting over the weekend and was totally awed and inspired. Trying to convince myself that I am fine using my ancient sewing machine with no walking foot and that the dozens of puckers and mistakes on my quilt don’t matter.

>Keep pinching myself that I work at such a great place. It’s so low stress and close and I have an amazing boss and coworkers.

>Love being a mom to little ones and of course don’t ever want them to grow up, but all this back-to-school stuff lately has me looking forward to that phase of life. I just try to enjoy every stage because they are all awesome for one reason or another and I wouldn’t want my children to be any age other than what they are right now.

    From Sarah:

    I want to hear more about the MQG meeting! :) Also, you dont have to have a walking foot I have one, but dont really use it. Everyone says its so helpful, but maybe Im not using mine right because I find it makes things worse for me!!

    From Kathleen:

    The meeting was so fun and inspiring! You would love it. Even as a beginner I felt very welcomed. My friend Becca did the binding tutorial and I was in awe of her machine. The only experience I have is with my old one (which is really solid and in good condition, but its still old) so it was pretty cool to see a new one in action. But its also really good to hear from you that you dont use a walking foot!

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    What a sweetie! How lucky that youre not dealing with teething right now. My poor little guy is really suffering, between teething and just generally disrupted sleep from brain upgrades in language, I think. I am a little jealous of your low stress job! I have about the lowest stress job for a lawyer that exists, at least hours-wise, but it can still be really political and stressful at times. My boss is grooming me for a promotion and Im not really sure I want it. Hmm

    From Katie:

    Stumbled upon your blog today. Love that you are modern quilting! I am a founder of the one in Indy and I love it. And ps everyone gets puckers I personally just embrace them rather than rip things out.
    Super cute baby.

    From Kathleen:

    So great to hear that encouragement! So far all the quilters Ive met have been very welcoming. I know some people are more perfectionist than others but Id just rather get it done! Its always nice to hear that experienced quilters roll with the puckers as well. :)
