I had someone ask me about the diaper bag in person today so I thought I'd post a picture of it...

This is the bag (C in the picture above) that I am working on. I'm using decorator fabric instead of quilted fabric. The ring fabric is the main part of the bag and the handles, the toille is the band and the inside lining. The striped fabric is the yoke of the pocket and the bottom (can't see in photo above) and the piping is red.

I haven't gotten real far... it's all cut out, and several things are pinned, but no sewing has taken place. If I could just have a solid hour I think I could get it done... but that is not happening lately.
Levi has gone from sleeping all the time to... well... not. And he isn't all together thrilled when he's awake. Evenings are particularly difficult. But I'm hoping it is a phase. He sleeps well thru the night though. He wakes to eat a couple times but goes right back out. Elijah woke hourly for a while... so did Isaac. Levi usually goes at least 3 hours, sometimes 4 in the night. I'm grateful. He sleeps a lot in the morning too. Right now Abigail is holding him and he is content. Maybe he's sick of me. HA!
This morning I worked out again and this time he did fall asleep on the way there and he stayed sleeping in his carrier while I worked out. E and I ate at church too. He is such a sweet little boy. Funny too. He loves Levi (or "eye-vye" as he calls him). He's adjusted so well. I thought he would have trouble not having me all to himself, but nope. Only bad thing is I don't get constantly kissed by him like I used to b/c much of his affection has moved to Levi :) Though he still has plenty left for me.
Was home for a couple of hours... with Levi in my lap. He wasn't happy anywhere else so I got nothing done. Then back to church for praise team practice/Bible Study/Retro Kids. Been home for about 30 min or so. So, it's been busy, but it's gone well... and I'm happy to be amongst adults :)
YESTERDAY my most awesome mom drove down from Fort Smith to watch Elijah while I took Levi to the doctor and both of them during honor choir. That was a HUGE help. Not only that, she stopped at the store and had a fabulous dinner waiting on us when we got home from choir. She was going to drive back home after that (2.5 hrs) but she ended up staying. We were glad. She left first thing this morning.
