When Joe's away, I get lonely and bored. In the evenings I can be dangerous. One night last week I bought some fabric. Then a few minutes later I bought a walking foot for my machine. I have several ideas using my walking foot. The first being:
An "eye spy" or "I spy" bag. It's kind of like a bean bag with some trinkets inside and a clear vinyl window. I found some small choking hazards on the mantel of our family room (that keep finding their way into this room, where baby spends all of his exploratory playtime) and gathered up a few other things (i.e., penny, BB, jingle bell, buttons, etc.) to put inside. It is definitely not a toy for babies and other little ones. Especially babies with a mouthful of sharp teeth.
Baby book entry: Yesterday Sawyer was sitting on the floor playing with his ball and some Mr. Potato Head eyes. He got into this position and (right after I snapped this picture, of course) he stood up. On his own. Without using his hands for any support! Just right in the middle of the floor. Using only his leg muscles! I am so sure that I cannot do that! Amazing little guy.
