After two weeks of house guests, we were on our own again last week.  Peter was even out of town on business for three days.  Braeden had enough of being passed around and wouldn't let me put him down for a few days.  We're now getting back into the swing of things, and he's allowing Peter to hold him for an extended period of time again.
I've been working on getting him to nap on  his own, which is hit and miss.  He's a good sleeper but likes to be touching someone.  Some days he will sleep in his basket just fine, and others I'm back in there every fifteen minutes to put him back to sleep.  In other Braeden news he's getting super strong and growing like a weed! He started rolling back to front at three days old and front to back at three weeks.  He tries to crawl to you if you move away from him, but doesn't have the arm strength to hold himself up so his front half just gets pushed along the blanket by his legs.  Size wise, he was ten pounds five ounces at the midwife's office last week, and has grown three and a quarter inches!His 0-3 month clothes are starting to fit snug and his 3-6 month onsies are fitting well with just a little length in the sleeves and quite a bit extra length in the pants department. 
I've been figuring out how to manage my time most days, and have started to catch up on drafting the patterns I've promised folks and have been reading a ton.  It feels great to be able to challenge my brain again.  I have one question for all you reenacting bloggers out there; if you had 70" of 60" wide tropical weight wool what would you make with it?  Colorwise it is deep plum with light gray pinstripes. 
Thanks, Jenny
