Finding a Rhythm

I can't believe we've already been at home with our little one for two weeks! My mum who was such an amazing help and support has returned to New Zealand and we've since been finding our own rhythm. I'm happy to say that she's letting us get some sleep around her 3 hourly feeds and DH and I continue to get lost in how adorable she is.

Over the last couple of days, I even managed to sew a softie for a friend's daughter's birthday. I used Kristen Doran's bunny pattern which was very easy to follow and I think came out really cute.



In the meantime, the little one (I haven't come up with a blog alias for her yet) continues to grow and change every day.
