    I made a few more baby items today. Two burp cloths and a bib. I still need to sew on a snap to the bib but that can happen another day. Most of my days lately have been filled with my cats, husband, growing this little baby and cleaning up my house. My mother is coming into town so I feel the need to bleach clean everything. Don't worry, my husband helps a lot and we only do one room a day.
    My husband got a job offer in Jacksonville Florida so we are trying to pack up the house at the same time. Make for quiet full days.
    Milo (foster kitten) is doing great, he has a big full belly just like my cat. He has now become a ball of energy that we don't know what to do with. We will have him for two more weeks then he will return to the shelter for adoption. Next week he gets his first round of vaccination shots :(

    Well enjoy my little fun for the day

    Great job!! I have been doing a little sewing of baby things as well. I made 6 burp cloths and a cover for the car seat so that Isaac can be hidden under it so no one will try and touch him. Keeps the sun out of his eyes too.,
    I hope you are feeling well!!! When will you be moving to Florida? We moved from Albuquerque to Pensacola Fl when my oldest was 3 weeks old. The are very transportable at a young age!

    Oh man, how do you make one of those car seat covers? I have been wanting to make one but can't bring myself to do it without some instruction.
    Right now the plan is to move before the baby is born but we shall see if it changes.

    I actually don't put anything in the middle, the two pieces are usually enough.

    If you do a search for car seat covers there are lots of patterns out there, take it easy with cleaning, give yourself a cuddle, hugs for bub
