Girly Quilt

I'm so proud of my little boy! He was not getting enough sleep during the day and being way over tired by 6pm that we would have a yelling/crying match for over 1/2 hour each evening! After a week of very loud crying I had had enough and decided to embark on 'operation day sleep'!

I did some reading, found a routine of 'feed play sleep play' that I thought would work for us and adapted it slightly to fit into Aden's daily pattern...with added sleep of course!

Today is day 3 and .....we have day time sleeps!!
Day 1 35 minutes in the morning, an hour being held and rocked as I was at Mother's group and no where to but him down at lunch time, and a nap in the pram while we walked the dog.
Day 2 40 minute sleep in the morning, 2 x 45 minutes back-to-back with a 10 minute re-settle at lunch and a nap in the rocker for 30 minutes in the afternoon...too hot to walk
Day 3 35 minutes in the morning, 1 hour 20 minutes (GO Aden!!) and a 10 minute sleepy cuddle as I couldn't get him back in his cot, and he has just gone back down again now in his cot for hopefully another 1/2 hour! 45 minutes woo hoo!!
So where is all this quilting time while Aden sleeps of course!

For a new baby girl due soon! Made from these charm squares, purchase in January 2008

The backing is ready and the wadding has been made from scraps leftover from other quilts.
