Stressful Times + More Baby Clothes

Monday, March 2, 2015

It's been a really stressful 24 hours. My dad is in the hospital, recovering from emergency surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. It's pretty serious, but he seems to be remaining stable... I was back and forth from the hospital a couple times yesterday and will be heading back there again in a couple of hours. Hopefully he will come out of sedation today... It's one of those situations where it's hard to know what to do with myself. It's serious. I'm trying to keep myself occupied. I put my shop on hold for a bit, so I can work on what's in my queue and spend more time with my family... He is not in our local hospital, so I am having to travel to the next town over to see him which makes things a little more tricky. 

Coming home to my happy little baby has been a nice ray of sunshine (Oliver too. My husband is also alright). At the same time, being away from her is really hard... I'm grateful to have friends and family volunteer to help with taking care of her while I spend time with my dad...

Before I head into the hospital today I've been trying to distract myself, so I decided I'd blog... Over the weekend, I did a bit of sewing for Izzy. I used See Kate Sew's Pippa Peplum Top Pattern, Brindille & Twig's Bloomer Pattern, and a Free Headband Pattern from Megan Nielsen. 





The finished outfit kind of reminds me of these turn of the century swimmers!

We've moved Izzy into her own room last week. She is such a great baby, so independent and happy.  It's hard to believe that only three months ago she couldn't even lift her own head; she does so much now! She bounces around in her little bouncy activity center thing, she makes all sorts of noises, laughs, smiles, plays with toys. She's really a whole little person now! It's crazy how fast they change... I am finding that I enjoy it more and more as she grows.

  10. That pink roses t-shirt is super cute. I love how the bottoms compare with the old school photo of the ladies at the beach. It is fun how a new set of clothing can bring back a nostalgia of old time fashion. I think that this is one of the common bonds my wife and I have with what kind of outfits we are looking for with regard to our first baby.

  12. Although we were in some far off destination, we did not have to take every meal at a restaurant. That one advantage more than compensated for the additional cost of renting the vacation home. In the end, we found that our vacation home ended up saving us so much money on food, that we made a profit against what we would have spent on the hotel and restaurant food. http://packandplayhq.com

  14. The biggest design changes in todays baby boy clothes is the fact that many of them are miniature copies of adult clothes. For instance you can now get body suits that look like polo shirts, cash4clothesexpert bristol
