Week 16 (Apr. 16 – 22)

Munki Munki Quilt

16.1: Fussy Cut
Ever since Lucia finished the doll quilt for H, Mallory has been asking for one too. Lucia started on it today, using some much coveted Heather Ross Munki Munki fabric by fussy cutting little scenes from many different fabrics.

More on the quilt in this post.

16.2: Wii Play
Mallory is getting old enough to be able to play some of our Wii games for longer than five minutes and without a lot of assistance.

16.2: More Stuff
The stuff that Mallory “needs” to go to sleep has increased (asleep on the master bedroom floor, not her bed). It now includes all of these things, all neatly lined up and grouped together. And we wonder why it is hard to keep our house in order…

52 Weeks :: Week 16 [8 weeks old]

16.3: Tessa at 8 weeks

  • she starting to get tears when she cries. So sad!
  • she usually wakes twice a night, but falls back asleep quickly.
  • is more alert and awake during the day and spends a good bit of time looking around (but still sleeps quite a bit)
  • she got another bottle of formula and coincidentally (or not) she was pretty fussy that night; so, we’re going to stick with nursing for the long haul. was hoping to incorporate a bottle of formula here and there but I prefer a happy baby.
  • she still doesn’t smile much for mama but will for daddy.
  • her skin is baby soft and we are loving not having *issues* with it!!

Bad quality photo (was trying to catch Tessa smiling while Jonathan was holding her), but it is all I have. I forgot to take a normal headshot for the week but was lucky that I happened to take this one!

16.3: The Artist
Mallory’s preschool teachers had been working with the students to create little paintings replicating different masterpieces. Today, the art was on display in a little art show in the parish hall after church.

16.4: Visiting the Animals
The girls headed to the FW zoo and met up with some friends for the day. The weather was nice too — not too hot or humid. The little girls had a great time and were worn out by the time we left.

This picture was taken with my iPhone camera… the only camera I brought. I had my hands full managing all three girls and knew I would not have the extra hands to take pictures too.

16.7: Check-Up
Tessa had her two month check up and is still steadily right smack dab in the middle of average for height and weight. She also had to get three shots and one liquid immunization orally. She did not like the liquid immunization and would not take it. The little bit that got in her mouth and partially swallowed, she spit-up shortly thereafter. The nurse said that Tessa is only the second baby that she could not get to take the liquid.

16.7: Two Heads are Better than One
We have a two-headed gerber daisy in one of the potted plants out front.

16.7: Here birdie, birdie!
Mal made a bird feeder out of a pinecone, peanutbutter and seeds today at school. She was very excited to hang it in the tree. Think the birds will like it?
