I've started sewing again lately. A co-worker of mine recently had a baby shower and I made her some custom burp cloths as a gift-- it really pushed me to get back into creating. I finally got my etsy site back up and running and I've made baby shoes, burp cloths, dresses and bibs. I actually made my first sale today! I have a new sewing/embroidery machine and I've had a lot of fun learning how to use it the past few weekends. Not only does it make me happy to make something cute for someone else, but I also enjoy practicing and perfecting my sewing skills, so that when the time comes, our little one will be the best dressed baby on the block.
Speaking of practicing, we're into our 4th month trying to conceive and honestly, we're a bit restless. We both want a baby so badly, and while we realize that these things just take time, neither of us are wanting to be patient. The good thing is that our restlessness seems to come in waves and it doesn't seem to hit us both at the same time-- when I'm frustrated, Rob reminds me that our time will come. When Rob is longing, I'm able to remind him that, "There's always next month." And it's true-- while the past several months have been a little disappointing, each month is a new opportunity for a miracle.
So, we'll keep trying, and eventually, I know that practice will make us a perfect little one.
