Well we have made it to Louisiana and it has been smooth sailing so far. William slept the first part of the trip, and he woke up when we stopped at the Louisiana-Texas border. Thus far, the hardest part of this whole trip was trying to fit all our stuff into Jeff's little Mazda 3 hatchback. Packing the car was like playing a game of Tetris with our stuff.

|Much like this closet from Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew|
What I love most about quilting is that I know Granny would have been so proud of me. She passed away in 2006 at the age of 86, and it makes me sad that I never had the chance to learn to quilt from her. But I know that she is looking down on me with a big smile, no matter how wonky my seams always seem to turn out.
Right now my goal is to try and make two quilts a month. I figure that should not be too hard. I already have two huge stacks of t-shirts ready to become a quilt and I go the cutest charm pack the other day at the fabric store. My biggest stumbling block is going to be little William and his curiousness/fussiness. I am very excited for this journey though!

What is even worse than his desire to chew on shoes, is his recent sleep pattern. He has been sleeping for an hour, and then wakes up shrieking for attention :( At his 6 month appointment the pediatrician said that this was normal, and that we just need to leave him and let him learn to sooth himself. For Jeff this has been no problem, but for me it has been very hard and he knows that I'll cave. He will be crying and then as soon as I walk into the room he stops and looks at me; that is how I know he is faking it.
Tonight has been one of those nights. I made it about 7 minutes before I went in and checked on him. I rather him know that I am there to sooth him when he needs it than leave him on his own all the time. There are times when self-soothing is necessary but there are also times when it is faster and easier to help them with their soothing process.
I am interested in seeing how he is going to do on our trip to New Orleans on Sunday. I have a strong feeling that his sleep patterns are going to be way out of whack after an 8 hour car ride. We will see what happens.
Till next time
