My absence has been a prime example of just how busy life can get and how fast time moves.  Where did the time go?

Let’s see if I can do some catching up.

As I mentioned in the last post, little guy has been walking full steam and just loves playing.  He has also taken to helping with our dog Buddy.  He helps us get him out of his crate in the morning.  Feeds him.  Yes he actually takes the little cup of food, carries it to his bowl and dumps it in and then returns the cup to the dog food container.  So cute!  And now he likes to tag along when we take Buddy out in the morning.  This usually turns into us walking all around the block.  The kid LOVES to walk!

His sleep is great too!  Last time we has just started doing CIO overnight and now he goes down and within about 20 minutes is asleep with no fussing.  Some mornings he is up around 6:30 which is a little tough on us, but we can let him stay in his room for a bit and he will just babble and not fuss.

And he has really taken to the one nap after lunch.  He naps on average of 1 1/2 hours.  Sometimes I can get 2 out him which of course helps me get more stuff around the house done, but even the 1 1/2 is pretty good.  For naps he is usually out in 10 minutes once I put him in his crib.

I am still technically breastfeeding, but I have him down to once a day only in the morning for about 10 minutes.  I am trying to wean him slowly down.  Yesterday he was done after 5 minutes, but today it was back to 10.  On the one hand I will miss it when it is done completely, but on the other, it has been nice to have the freedom to wear regular bras again!  LOL

We also started going to Gymboree once a week.  He really enjoys that!  The first couple of times he pretty much only played with the balls.  But now he will climb on everything and has started to participate more.  It is so fun to watch him and I might add, quite a workout for us!

With fall arriving I am really looking forward to taking him to the pumpkin patch.  We took him last year, but I think he will certainly get more out of it this year as he enjoys everything around him.

He sure has been keeping us busy.  But such a joy and we just love that little guy so much!!!

Another time consumer has been my little ornament business.  I have added some ornaments since my last post.  I have added a couple of more dogs (as a result of a special order), a cat, a cardinal, and more recently football helmets for some of the professional teams.  I have been having so much fun with this and 3 days ago I posted a reminder in one of the Facebook groups in which I am a member and got 10 more orders for the Goldendoodle ornament.  I am loving this!  Again, I have so many ideas in my head, but they will probably have to wait until after Christmas at this rate.  I also signed up for some ad space in a digital Holiday Guide that will come out October 1.  So we will see what happens with that.  If you haven’t checked it out lately, please stop by!  http://FeltNostalgic.etsy.com/

So there you have the update.  I know it doesn’t seem like too much, but with the little guy, the ornaments, and just taking care of the house, etc., the days seem to fly by.  I will try to stay in touch more.  Thank you for sticking around!

Thanks for reading!
