Lily and I spent a whole day at home alone today. It was our first day without any planned trips out or any visitors. And my first day officially back at work. Or at least, that was the plan.
I'd forgotten how much there was to do when you were just looking after a baby and what it was like to try and fit everything in to nap time. So not much work was done. But it was a start, and I think that Lily and I are going to be able to strike a good balance over time.
I did manage to finish Lily's play mat though. And even managed to get photo's of her enjoying it.
The play mat is based on my original design but I pepped it up a little with some bright reds. I also stuck to just spots and checks for this one and I used extra thick batting, so it's good and comfortable.
I do love these play mats, they're the most practical thing that I make for babies and I can honestly say that Bella's is still kicking around and holding it's own (it's just not as pretty as Lily's).
It's just a shame that modeling the new play mat is so tiring.
