8 Weeks

8 Weeks! What a joy this baby has been. I've learned alot this time around and three kids can be a juggling act for sure. I did give myself a slight advantage by waiting 5 1/2 years, but in the end I still only have 2 arms.

8 Mommy Tips Learned in the First 8 Weeks

1. Rest, Rest, Rest ~ take the time to heal
2. Help, Help, Help ~ don't try and be superwomen, when people offer graciously accept
3. Feeding Time ~ everyone is just going to have to wait when your feeding the baby
4. Trust your Gut ~ Henry was very fussy and I took him in at 2 weeks and found out he had acid reflux. Prevacid ~ what a lifesaver
5. Bag Balm ~ perfect remedy for diaper rash

6. Siblings ~ my older boys have absolutely loved holding and interacting with Henry
7. Binkie Holder ~ no more screaming "Where's the Binkie??"

8. Enjoy ~ they are small for such a brief time just enjoy it!!

Other tips from Moms out there?? I would love to hear from you.

Henry's Quilt

About 2 weeks before I had Henry I finished this quilt top for him. I love the main fabric. I searched high and low for the perfect fabric in every quilt store along the Wasatch Front. I wanted something that said "little" but not "baby". I adapted the quilt top from a few quilt ideas off Red Pepper Quilts.

I finally decided how I wanted Henry's Quilt quilted.
I had my quilt buddy Ella do a checkerboard pattern.
I love how it turned out....looks very boy-ish.
 The quilt measures 50" by 50".

I love the stripe I picked out for the binding. It is so playful and fun.
