Crafty girl: part 2

Nursing covers
I have a cousin who makes nursing covers for her friends who are having babies. I have two friends who I work with who are due to have babies soon. We had a baby shower for them this last weekend and I decided I too, would try my hand at these covers. I LOVE the way they turned out. I will be making more of these.

Crafty girl: part 1

Lately, I've been working on a lot of different projects, mainly sewing but also knitting too. I thought I would showcase some of my recent projects:

Soft fabric blocks:

made into the colors of red, white and black to stimulate Matthew's eyes. Complete with taggies for sensory input and to use to hook to his stroller. I also put a jingle bell in each for auditory input. Matthew loves them!

more projects to come.....

Corner sitting

Matthew is working hard on head control. One of things we have been working on is corner sitting. Matthew was pretty proficient at this prior to getting sick. We have back tracked a bit, but I've noticed rapid improvement in the last couple of weeks. Here's Matthew working hard!

Still working hard and smiling

Thinking a little harder

Starting to get tired.

We're also ordering a stander for Matthew so we're hoping that we will start to see improvements in Matthew's head control. This would open a whole new world for him!

My studious girl

Megan came to me before Christmas vacation, and said, "Mom I can't see the board sometimes from my seat at school." She sits in the back row, so I didn't think too much about it, but she wanted to go to the eye doctor. We made an appointment, and low and behold she has an astigmatism and is nearsighted. She was so excited to pick out pretty new glasses.
I got the phone call today from the eye doctor that her glasses had come in. When I picked up Megan from school, and drove her to the eye doctor, she literally bounced out of the car and ran to get her glasses. She is loving having glasses. We'll see how long that lasts!
I remember in kindergarten she had a visit with the eye doctor, and she left crying because she wanted glasses so bad and they told her that her vision was perfect. Funny girl.
