Week 28 (July 9 – 15)

Wee Play Hexes

28.2: Hexagons
Lucia started a ‘handwork’ project to do while in the car during the trip to Atlanta (and to work on in the future during idle times, like sitting at soccer practice or waiting at appointments). Eventually the hexagons will be turned into a variation of a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.  She uses an English Paper Piecing technique (or this one) to make the hexagons and then they are pieced together by hand. During the trip to Atlanta, she made more than 80 hexagons. The Grandmother’s Garden quilt she anticipates making will contain more than 1,000 hexagons. This is definitely a long term project!

28.4: Tessa at 20 weeks (the last weekly shot, for awhile)

  • after spending ~30 hours in her carseat for our trip to/from Atlanta, Tessa is currently not a fan of being in her car seat
  • sleeps most of the night in her bassinet in the master bedroom. She goes to sleep when we go to sleep and comes into the bed for a quick feeding usually right before dawn. She then takes a good long morning nap (well, not really a nap so much as she continues her night sleep until at least noon!).
  • solidly in 3-6 month clothes and 1-2 diapers (2s are a little big on her yet but we use them some since we have a box of them)
  • she’s noticing more things around her, like the quilt Lucia made that she lays on frequently
  • Her thumb is in her mouth a lot, including when she sleeps.
  • she is a happy smiley baby. with two dimples. very social in terms of reacting (smiling and/or cooing) when people talk to her.
  • (she’s got a big ol’ noggin’ and not much hair, but I love it)

28.4: Dragonfly
We went to visit the B’s this evening and on our way into the house we spotted this pretty little dragonfly that stopped just long enough to get its picture taken.

28.7: Figuring it Out
Chelsea got this little trike for her birthday in January. Since she could not figure out how to make the pedals work, Mallory has been riding it around our kitchen/family room/halls (she’s fast — so watch out!). Today, Chelsea finally got the pedals and her feet in sync and she can now ride it around too. She’s very proud.

Gotta love the color cast that our house/walls give off. Not.

28.7: Vacation Aftermath
The one downside to traveling is the laundry that seems to magically appear once we get back. We have piles of color-sorted dirty clothes in the hall and piles of clean clothes ready to be folded on the couch.
