After the walk we went home and spent some time in the swing, then practiced rolling from back to front on a blanket on the floor, changed a diaper, then some quality time with Grandpa Ray. They enjoy walks in the garden followed by some time in the hammock. The last time Sofia stayed with us she was not very happy with her bottle—she much prefers her breast milk straight from the source. Emily bought a different brand of bottle and nipple, which seemed to be more acceptable today. Or maybe it was eating outdoors in the hammock that made the difference.
Before we knew it the day was gone and Mama was back to pick her up. Sofia and grandparents both survived her first full day with us.
Progress on the green thumb quilt
I printed my Illustrator sketch out at full size, tiling it onto a bunch of sheets, and taped it up on my glass door. Then I taped a full size sheet of paper over it and traced it lightly with pencil.
I know I am going to want to make some changes and refinements to the full size pattern. I keep the traced lines light enough that I can change them if I need to. When I have made the necessary changes I'll trace the whole thing again with a black permanent marker.
