Weekly review: Week ending March 11, 2016

Posted: - Modified: | review, weekly

This week actually felt pretty normal. Just the two-week appointment with the midwife, and plenty of time to settle back into household routines. I cooked a little (shake-and-bake chicken), went out for errands, and even got around to vacuuming part of the house. I still have to learn W-'s tricks for calming A- in the middle of the night, but I'm sure we'll sort something out by the time he goes back to work. A- still has her days and nights mixed up, so afternoon naps and low-power evenings will have to tide us over.

A- has started reaching out for the white/black/red-patterned quilt blocks I made. I'd like to do some sewing this week – maybe some soft cubes of red and black gingham so that she can look at and play with them, and maybe a few pairs of pants. Might even include a trip to the fabric store…
